TILE IS DYNAMIC. Tile adds energy, excitement and enchantment to any room. It has a unique character and texture because of its natural origin.
TILE IS OPTIC. Tile looks good, because it is available in a plethora of styles, patters, shapes, colours and finishes. It not only makes your home look elegant, but also vibrant and provocative.
TILE CREATES MAGIC AND MYSTIQUE. With a tradition that dates back to ancient civilizations, ceramic tile can be found in a variety of settings in diverse cultures and structures around the world. From palatial homes, institutions and government buildings, to mystical religious structures like cathedrals and mosques.
OLD, YET CONTEMPORARY. It is amazing to note that though tiles have been around for ages; technology today has helped create so many new and beautiful designs, and opened up new application possibilities that were not available before. It’s amazing that such a wide selection of colours, sizes, shapes and new textures are now available.
NATURAL INGREDIENTS MAKE IT A NATURAL FOR HOME. Ceramic tiles are made up of clay and other natural products. Glazed ceramic tile has a ceramic coating applied to the tile body, which gives the tile its colour and finish.
DURABLE. A properly installed ceramic tile will outperform and outlast nearly any other floor covering product created for the same application.
EASY CARE. It’s an outstanding feature of ceramic that it doesn’t need much care. Cleaning up with a damp mop or sponge is enough. So trust us when we say that ceramic requires minimal maintenance.
Glazed ceramic tile resists stains, odors, and dirt and can be cleaned up with a damp mop or sponge or common household cleaners. Ceramic tiles are essentially a low-maintenance material. Though some glazed tiles may require more attention because they are porous.
In our ceramic maintenance segment we’ll share ideas on how to keep tiled surfaces looking their best, and performing well for you year after year.
SCRATCH RESISTANT. Grade III and Grade IV glazed ceramic tiles are extremely resistant to scratching, therefore you never have to worry about a cut or tear.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY. Ceramic tile is manufactured using natural materials and does not retain odors, allergens, or bacteria.
BEAUTIFUL AND VERSATILE. Modern ceramic manufacturing technology has created virtually an unlimited number of colours, sizes, styles, shapes and textures that will add rich beauty and character to any room’s decor.
FIRE RESISTANT. This comes in handy in the kitchen. If you place a hot pan or skillet directly, your tiles won’t melt or get scorched. Ceramic doesn’t get burnt nor does it emit any toxic fumes.
WATER RESISTANT. Glazed ceramic tiles mostly have a dense body that doesn’t allow moisture to accumulate. This means spills from common liquids found in a kitchen are nothing to be worried about.
