Glazed Vitrified Tiles or GVT tiles are a popular tiling material.GVT tiles often pop up while searching for tiles, but along with them, you will see two more acronyms popping up – PGVT and DGVT.


Glazed Vitrified Tiles (GVT) have a layer of glaze on the surface. On this layer of glaze any kind of design can be imprinted using high volume inkjet printers. This ensures any type of design and colour can be customised on the top 2-4mm layer of the tile. Manufactured using the process of vitrification, these tiles are durable and long lasting, with the top extra glaze layer adding to the strength of the tile.


These durable tiles are great for both residential as well as commercial spaces, such as Dining rooms,  Bedrooms, Kitchens, Boutiques, Showrooms,  Airport, Metro stations, Bathrooms, Corridors, Offices, Conference rooms, Break rooms, Malls.
