Green Squared®

All Florida Tile products manufactured in our Lawrenceburg, KY Advanced Manufacturing Facility are Green Squared Certified®. Florida Tile was among the first to earn TCNA – Green Squared® certification.

This multi-attribute sustainability standard is for tiles and tile installation materials. It uses the transparency and consensus of the ANSI® process combined with third party certification to evaluate, validate, and communicate products that have a positive impact on the environment and society.

Covered by the standard are environmental product characteristics, environmental product manufacturing, raw material extraction, end-of-product life management, progressive corporate governance, and innovation.


All products manufactured at our Advanced Manufacturing Facility are GreenGuard® Certified. This certification offers strict criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individual such as children and the elderly, and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Building Rating System.

Porcelain Tile

All of Florida Tile’s porcelain products are Certified Porcelain by the Porcelain Tile Certification Agency (PTCA). This certification is given only to products that meet the ANSI® 137.1 requirements to be a porcelain tile, absorption of less than 0.5%. Florida Tile tests every single tile collection to attain this certification as a service for our customers.

To be certified, each tile must be independently tested by an accredited laboratory, which must forward the results directly to the PTCA. By looking for the Certified Porcelain logo, you can rest assured that you are getting what you paid for, a true porcelain tile.
