Johnson Tiles brings a new glazed porcelain range to the market.
Suitable for application on both walls and floors, local tile manufacturer, Johnson Tiles, has launched its new Portico range to complement its existing tile offering.
This glazed porcelain range is exclusive to retailer Tile Africa.
Featuring a water-mark cement design, the new range represents the international trend of materials in their raw and weathered form, adding a natural ruggedness to a design.
“Porcelain tiles in neutral palettes and greys remain popular with interior designers and architects, and are a fashionable flooring choice for upmarket living spaces,” says Richard Nuss, marketing manager at Johnson Tiles.
“The Portico range is slip-resistant and is available in a 400 x 400 size. The range has three colour-ways ranging from a modern grey-yellow, a neutral tone and a dark tan,” Nuss adds.
Glazed porcelain tiles from Johnson Tiles are manufactured to high-quality standards that comply with, or exceed, European standards (EN:177).
The main beneficial characteristics of a porcelain tile, be it glazed or unglazed, are as follow:
• The body is less porous, which makes porcelain tiles perfect for bathrooms, patios and kitchens where water is a consideration.
• Porcelain tiles are dense and high in strength, making them suitable for high-traffic areas.
• Due to the fact that porcelain tiles are pressed harder and fired at a higher temperature than glazed ceramic tiles, they present obvious benefits over glazed ceramic tiles. They are frost-, ultraviolet (UV)-, fade- and stain-resistant, and are very hard-wearing, making them the perfect choice for the commercial market.
“We are proud to be a local manufacturer capable of producing glazed porcelain tiles that are on-trend and of the highest quality,” says Nuss.
Johnson Tiles continues to provide South Africa’s leading building supply retailers with locally produced and imported tile ranges, and takes pride in its ability to develop and offer these retailers exclusive products ranges.
