Rondine Bristol Bricks & Pavers | Italian Porcelain Tile
The Bristol series features two important parts - a Paver in two sizes, 13 x 13 and 6 1/2 x 13, and a 2 3/8 x 10 Brick. The realism and depth that Rondine has achieved in this 5 color inkjet glazed porcelain line is remarkable. The 13 x 13 and 6 1/2 x 13 sizes really look like reclaimed pavers. In all sizes it is important to mix tiles within each carton and to blend from several cartons during installation to get a proper balance of variation. Please also note that while the color names are the same in Pavers and the Bricks, the difference in concept and texture mean that the two versions of each color are not exactly identical.

Usage & Installation
Suitable for both residential and moderate commercial installations.
Bricks are typically set with a 3/8” grout joint, so coverage for the Bricks is calculated using an approximate 3/8” joint. They can be installed with a smaller grout joint, but additional material will be required to make up the difference in coverage. Because of the brick texture, it may be helpful to use a grout release, and should be noted that some grout may remain in the surface indentations.
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.
