As an American manufacturer, we love to promote anything American. That is especially true in the design of our newest Color Body Porcelain Floor and Wall tile line, Cliffside. Modeled after the traditional Vermont style slate, this material has been used as a building material since the founding of this great country. Known for its deep monochromatic Blue/Grey tones, perfectly clefted surface and relative durability, Vermont Slate is a proven success. With Florida Tile’s Cliffside, we took those traditional benefits and made a product that is better. Available in pressed, 12x12, 12x24 and 18x18, Cliffside will outperform real slate in durability, ease of maintenance, price and color offering. Three colors represent the traditional slate in Light Gray (Light Grotto), Deep Blue (Blue Oasis), Dark Gray/Black (Gorge Dark Gray), then we introduced a fourth color that combines the look of slate with a more traditional Sandstone the (Beige Bluff).
Designed using Florida Tile’s HDP-High Definition Porcelain technology, we are able to reproduce this stone look. By combining a very sophisticated series of 5 different punches per color, created a surface that is truly remarkable. From strong cleft to slight texture, the variation of the punches combined with the graphic representation of texture makes this a look that you can’t keep your hands off of. Accompanying the field tile is an M12 mosaic, 6x12 Cove Base and Corners as well as a 3x12 Bullnose all offered in 4 colors. Decorative listellos are 2x12, created in a warm and cool version.The surface has strong linear cross-hatch of raised forms that are accented by a heavy gloss glaze application which draws a strong contrast to the matte base.
With the exception of select trim and decorative pieces, this product line is Made in the USA of 40% post-industrial recycled content, is Greenguard and Porcelain Tile Certified, and meets the new DCOF AcuTest requirements to be installed in wet areas.
