Cracked Tile

Cracked tile on floor in airport

Cracked tile on floor of PBI airport.  Installed over brand x crack suppression peel and stick mat!  Did the crack telegraph up from the slab or was the crack suppression peel and stick mat so soft, or lack sufficient load bearing capability, that it allowed heavy duty / wheeled carts traffic in an airport to crack the tiles?

My thoughts revolve around the potential that the crack suppression peel and stick mat under the tile work does not have sufficient "load bearing" capability and regular wheeled cart and luggage traffic in the airport simply is cracking some of the tiles !

Why do you think the tiles cracked ?
