Hickory Fog 6 x 36
Porcelain Wood Tile Made in Italy
The Hickory Fog 6 x 36 is a wood-looking porcelain tile that comes with a smooth matte finish and a unique and modern, high variation wood look. The Hickory collection comes with rectified edges to allow for minimal grout lines and to provide and even surface look. This collection is designed and manufactured in Italy by Tuscania Gres Porcelanato under the highest quality standards. Tuscania’s tiles go through extensive testing to guarantee consistency and to prevent most of the problems that are inherent to porcelain tiles of lower quality like excessive bowing, discoloration and breaks.
In terms of durability, this is a great tile. With a PEI Class IV rating, this floor is more than adequate for high traffic areas in residential applications, and is suitable for commercial settings. The manufacturer recommends installing the tiles with at least 1/8th of inch grout line. A smaller grout line (i.e. 1/16th in.) can be achieved with a leveling-spacer installation system such as our LASH system. These tiles can be installed on a variety of layouts, including straight, diagonal and even herringbone pattern. Never install porcelain tiles on a “brick pattern” or 50% offset pattern, doing so will accentuate the “bowing” effect of the porcelain tiles.
