Legend Havana 8 x 48
Porcelain Wood Look Tile Made in Italy
The Legend Havana 8 x 48 is a Porcelain Wood Look Tile has a spectacular time-worn texture, the same kind of texture present in reclaimed wood. These gorgeous tiles come with plenty of character marks, realistic knots, and high contrasts. Which are the true signs of materials deeply transformed by the passing of time. Because of the extra wide and long planks, the installer can achieve a series of modern patterns that will make any room look amazing. And the rectified edges provide an even surface look throughout your floors, as well as barely visible grout lines.
Ariana Ceramica is a brand of ABK Group, the manufacturer the tile. They create innovative products under the highest quality controls. This collection is a true sign of that. These tiles are made with an ultra thin construction. That combined with a patented recipe of polymer-based materials allow the tiles to be “flexible”. This means an easier installation with minimum grout lines. It also reduces lippage to virtually nothing, even when not using a leveling system. Ariana recommends installing the planks with a maximum offset of 20%. But it also allows a 50% or brick pattern because of the flexible properties of the product. A 15 to 20% offset is optimal to achieve a real hardwood pattern. These tiles are more than adequate for high traffic areas in residential and commercial settings.
