New Porcelain Tile Series
Unica is a rectified through body porcelain that is a creative interpretation of stone, combining texture with the look of the world’s finest marbles. Because this material is a porcelain product, minimal maintenance is required. It is offered in four stocked colors and in two finishes, including our R11 Anti-Slip Finish. To be certified as R11 Anti-Slip, a tile must pass an internationally recognized analysis showing that a person can maintain balance while standing on the wet tile at an incline of up to 27 degrees. This finish allows the material to be installed in outdoor and wet areas, creating a seamless look between indoor and outdoor areas.
The Shibusa series is an Italian-made, color body porcelain tile offered in five neutral colors and six sizes. This series has a clean, linear look that offers a simplistic and modern appeal. Inspired by the natural beauty of bamboo, its surface is artistically created to have a textured quality. It can be applied in a variety of installations and in various configurations, as the versatility of the sizes make for endless combinations. Because this material is porcelain product, minimal maintenance is required.
Keeping up with the pace of new porcelain tile releases, Arizona Tile also boasts the release of several new quartzite stone options. Among those, Greystoke is a quick favorite. It is a Brazilian quartzite flaunting a mixture of warm and cool grey tones. Its ethereal backdrop is accented by sweeping veins cascading across its surface which add to its heavenly appeal. Concentrated areas of blue-grey add character making it a truly exquisite stone. An alternative to marble, Greystoke’s hard, resilient surface can be used for kitchen countertops without having the scratching and etching issues experienced with marble. Arizona Tile carries Greystoke in 2cm and 3cm slabs.
