Description

Northwind Melange 9 x 36
Porcelain Wood Tile Made in Italy

The Northwind Melange 9 x 36 is a wood-looking porcelain tile flooring that comes with a realistic distressed texture and a matte finish that resembles reclaimed wood planks. The Northwind collection comes with rectified edges to allow for minimal grout lines and to provide and even surface look. Every color of this series is available in two different sizes that allows for a random width hardwood look. This collection is designed and manufactured in Italy by Tuscania Gres Porcelanato under the highest quality standards. Tuscania’s porcelain 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.

Product Overview

  • Each tile is approximately 9 by 36 inches or exactly 22 by 90 centimeters.
  • Each box contains 5 tiles for a total coverage of 10.65 sq ft and weighs 48.50 lbs.
  • There are 60 boxes and 626.40 square feet per pallet. Each pallet weighs approximately 2950 lbs.
  • Rectified edges help minimize grout lines and provide and even surface look.
  • These tiles come with a beautifully realistic distressed texture and a modern matte finish.
  • The color variation from tile to tile is noticeable (V3).
  • Excellent for high traffic areas for residential purposes. Suitable for normal traffic areas in commercial settings.
  • This tile is frost resistance that allows for outdoor applications.
  • Do not install in brick pattern or 50% offset. Doing so will accentuate the bowing that is inherent to tile manufacturing.
  • When installing this floor, a minimal grout line of 1/8 in. is recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Doing a 1/16 in. grout line or smaller can cause some unevenness or “lippage” between tiles if not done properly.
  • The manufacturer recommends using a multi-purpose polymer-based thin-set. A type-s mortar may be necessary for significantly unleveled sub-floors.

Maintenance

Guidelines

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are extremely durable under normal use. Porcelain tiles are non-porous which makes them highly stain resistant. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are very low maintenance; common household spills are easy to clean with the use of a mop, warm water, and a pH neutral cleaner. Do not use acidic cleaners on porcelain or ceramic products. Grout is easily stained. We recommend the use of a grout sealer or a polymer based grout material during installation for the highest stain resistance. Mop your floors at least every other week to prevent grout stains and dirt buildup.

I needed tiles and mosaics to redo one of the bathrooms on my house. They have so much options that it was kind of hard to make up my mind, which is a good problem to have. The service was great and their prices are very good imo. I will return when Im ready to redo my other bathroom.

GREAT customer service. Very large selection of floors and very fair prices in laminate floors, tiles, and moldings which are like half the price of Home Depot.
