Ceramic tile --- maximum weight allowance?
I have a very heavy statue that I want to place onto my ceramic tile hearth and was wondering if anyone knew how much weight ceramic tile (Daltile) could withstand?
The tile floor has a concrete slab substrate.
The statue sits on a 2' x 1' concrete base. The majority of the weight is concentrated in the base.
I would guess the total weight to be approximately 60+ lbs.
If I placed wheels on the base of the statue or sat it upon 2x4 blocks, would that help distribute the weight better on the tile floor?
