4. Bringing rectifying technology to the SA market

Ceramic Industries’ latest investment in style and innovation brings advanced rectifying technology to the market. Rectifying is a mechanical process that ensures tiles are uniform in size and perfectly square. The company has recently launched its newest product range, Square² rectified tiles. The precise uniformity allows Square² tiles to be laid with very small grouting lines – down to 2.0mm – giving the clean, uninterrupted look that consumers are increasingly looking for.

5. Multilayer wooden flooring for multiple enjoyment

The appeal of solid wood flooring never seems to fade, but for a number of reasons, authentic wood isn’t a practical solution for many projects.

Engineered wood is not only more economical than solid wood flooring, it is also exceptionally durable. With multilayer wooden flooring, three to four layers of wood are stacked on top of each other before being covered with a thin coat of veneer. WanabiWoods’ Lalegno Engineered Wood range boasts ongoing development of multilayer flooring driven by solid investments and revolutionary innovations.
