One of today's interior design trend is to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces to generate a more seamless transition from one space to another. This generates a cohesiveness of spaces that were traditionally designed to be contrasts of each other.
The tile industry has evolved and adapted to this design trend. A 2cm (3/4") thick porcelain tile has been developed by the most innovative and avant-garde factories in the world to provide architects, designers and end users to create this seamless transition from indoor to outdoor spaces and vice versa. Aside from having all the required COF ratings for outdoor usage, this 2cm porcelain product is the most versatile in the market. Its thickness gives it a tensile strength that allows it to withstand traffic even when the subfloor is not completely solid and stable such as concrete. It can be installed directly on grass, gravel and sand. Additionally, this tensile strength generated by its thickness allows it to be installed on a raised pedestal system that is height adjustable and has a 5% pivot head which provides leveling benefits.
Floors and Tiles in Orlando is proud to carry many of these products in stock and are available now. Visit one of our showrooms to learn more about these products.
