Our products far exceed the norm of 160°C temperature differences as laid down in the European standard. The heat retaining properties of Continental Vitrified Hotelware are excellent due to the very high firing temperatures in the production process.
Continental uses a specially formulated glaze that is geared to withstand the rigours of the catering environment and has the ability to resist staining, abrasion and detergents in normal usage.
Continental’s Vitrified Hotelware is impermeable to water.
Our products conform to the British Standard BS 4034. This standard controls the amount of water absorption allowed in a glazed piece of ceramicware and guarantees that the product is highly resistant to crazing. Glazing over the base of flatware ensures that the absorption of water or other materials will not occur.
Our products are designed to stack which aids storage and facilitates space saving. The glazed foot of the flatware prevents scratching from taking place.
