Orient Bell Limited, OBL, a leading manufacturer of ceramic and vitrified tiles in the country has bagged a contract with the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation with their Sahara Series - Full Body Tiles. According to the company, Lucknow Metro has replaced Kota stones with Sahara Series in a more cost efficient move without compromising on its strength, looks or durability.
Lucknow Metro’s structures like the glory of their Nawabs have been designed to sustain for at least 100 years. OBL’s Sahara Series have been chosen over Kota stones as they give consistency in terms of quality, shades across batches and ease of installation as well as maintenance as these lightweight tiles do not require polishing. OBL in its press communiqué states that unlike the varying colour changes of a stone, the shades of the Sahara Series Tiles stay constant with the promise of durability. Additionally, the weight of tiles is lower than that of stone, making the overall installation cost and time more economical. The tiles are chemical and stain resistant, and can be chosen over stones as they have negligible water absorption property. " A mixture of raw material consisting of natural clay, feldspar, quartz and natural pigments for different batches are used to make design ranges such as Beige, Gris, Creama, Nero and P Kota Green. With a breaking strength greater than 2000 Newton and scratch hardness upto 6 on Moh’s scale, Orient Bell’s Sahara Series is the ideal choice for Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation," it said.
Describing the uniqueness of the Sahara Series, the company stated that the aesthetic appeal of the tile remains intact even after prolonged exposure to wear and tear, making it the most preferred durable tile. "Even after abrasion, there is hardly any chipping as the design of these tiles remains even. This makes them perfect for commercial spaces such as automobile showrooms, hospitals, airports, metro stations, swimming pool decks, hotel lobbies, educational institutions along with retail or residential spaces such as porches, living rooms, garden areas and bathrooms," read the communiqué.
