Fly Zone Argilla | Italian Porcelain Tile
“Argilla” refers to a specific type of clay that comes from the Sassuolo region in Italy where the Italian ceramic industry is centered. With the look of the traditional handmade floors from that area’s history, this line is about tile being itself rather than an interpretation of something else. A glazed inkjet porcelain at a competitive price, Argilla is a true value. It is suitable for residential and light to moderate commercial use. As with all inkjet lines, there is a lot of graphic variation and the graphics are mixed and packed randomly. It is important to pull from multiple boxes during installation, rotate pieces and note the placement of the different images in order to get the proper final blend.

Usage & Installation

Most Italian manufacturers recommend a maximum offset of 8” (20cm) on all large format tiles when setting a running bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles ANSI A 108.2 Section 4.3.8.
The Coefficient of Friction is a general guide only. Testing may vary with different production runs and with different testing labs.
As noted in the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) the coefficient of friction varies considerably due to facts not under the control of entities such as the manufacturers and distributors. These factors include, but are not limited to, contaminants, slope of terrain, drainage conditions, adjacent surfaces, etc. Suitability for any installation can only be determined by a site examination of all conditions that could affect the slip resistance of the tile being installed. Continual cleaning and maintenance must be performed once the tile has been installed. For more information see our current handout Americans with Disabilities Act and Slip Resistance of Tile.
