Urban Wood Vanilla 6 x 36
Porcelain Wood Tile Made in Italy
The Urban Wood Vanilla 6 x 36 is a unique wood-looking rectified porcelain tile. It comes with a painted and worn-wood plank effect and a smooth matte finish. The Urban_Wood 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 Fioranese Ceramica under the highest quality standards. These porcelain tiles are subject to strict quality standards to make sure they are free of defects, and to achieve consistency in size and tonality. Fioranese Ceramica puts all their products through several inspections and quality controls, to make sure that each tile surpasses the industry standards.
With a PEI Class IV rating, this porcelain tile 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.
