LEXINGTON KY ⎯ Florida Tile has introduced a stylized interpretation of vein-cut stone called TidesHDP, a glazed porcelain and wall tile line for both commercial and residential use. It is the latest addition to the company’s family of ever-expanding HDP High Definition Porcelain® Products.
“Specifically,” says Sean Cilona, Florida Tile’s Marketing Director, “the look of TidesHDP is that of a linear-cut Travertine or Limestone known as Georgette. In its natural form this look is a stunning linear play of tone-on-tone colors which creates the contemporary appearance.”
“As a Florida Tile porcelain product, TidesHDP is far stronger, more versatile, and easier to maintain than stone, meaning that the look can go virtually anywhere,” he adds.
According to Cilona. “By using Florida Tile’s HDP-High Definition Porcelain® technology, we not only reproduce this stone look, we also are able to set loose our imaginations with bold color combinations that can't be found in nature.”
The new TidesHDP collection ranges from bold Blues to Steel Gray and Dark Brown.
“We created contemporary colors that can be specified in any commercial space. Each color has a unique blend of complimentary colors within its veining to add interest and depth, as well as pair beautifully with other design finishes.” (The larger-format TidesHDP
can also make a statement in residential settings.)
TidesHDP glazed porcelain floor and wall is available in pressed 12x24 along with a 3x24 bullnose for each color.
Continuing, Cilona also says “We have also added a unique patterned M12 mosaic that rotates each chip 90 degrees, to create a wonderful checkerboard pattern. From a design perspective, the result is that TidesHDP presents countless opportunities for creative expression, far beyond that of natural stone.”
TidesHDP is made in the USA of 40% post-industrial recycled content. It is Greenguard and Porcelain Tile Certified and meets the new DCOF Acutest requirements to be installed in wet areas.
