After 15 years in the tile industry, Douglas Jones is still producing bespoke designs and innovative adhesives.
Since its inception 15 years ago, Douglas Jones has kept abreast of the trends as well as the ever changing needs in the building industry. In one of its latest innovations, the company has teamed up with Weber-Tylon, an international manufacturer and supplier of quality adhesives, to develop the Douglas Jones Mosaic Fix to ensure flawless mosaic installations.
“Mosaics are very different to normal tiles in that they generate more movement and therefore need a quick-setting, high-tensile strength adhesive which has the ability to absorb the additional movement of the sheets,” explains marketing director, Kitty Douglas-Jones.
To address this requirement, the Douglas Jones Mosaic Fix is a premium product designed to provide a perfect installation and ultimate peace of mind. The mosaic fix is easy to mix, easy to apply and fast setting (six hours), which affords installation in a shorter period and in turn, saves both time and money.
Having recognised a need for mosaic, décor and tile accent products, Douglas Jones was established in 1999 with a clear mission to service this gap in the market. Focusing on finding unique, fashionable and inspiring mosaic and decorative tiles, the company imports products from all over the world and mirrors the taste of international interior design studios and architectural firms alike.

In its Uniquely South African production department, also known as the Creative Assembly, designers concentrate on creating bespoke patterns, fades and mixes, with the client’s imagination being the only limitation. “This department sets us apart from our competitors as we have an infrastructure of more than 20 people dedicated to making up these unique projects,” Douglas-Jones states.
This year, Douglas Jones celebrates its 15th year of trade in the tile industry and will have many different promotions and give-aways during the year. Look out for its EST99 logo on various gifts and promotional items. As the company has branched out to include decorative tiles, its slogan has also been amended to “Douglas Jones – the tile décor collection”.
