Usage & Installation
Shapes is suitable for walls and residential floors. The London White color may be suitable for light commercial floors. It is advisable to blend from multiple boxes during installation.
Due to the extruded process that creates this handcrafted look, we recommend using at least an 1/8” grout joint. It is also recommended to use a grout color similar to the color of the tile and to avoid contrasting grouts. It is important to mix pieces within each carton and from several cartons to attain a proper blend. Expect variation from production run to production run, and between the different shapes/sizes.
*As part of the intended, handmade feel of the 3 1/2 x 14, the edges are more cushioned than the other shapes. It is important to wash down the grout to reveal the cushion. Because of the cushion, the grout joint will appear bigger than the spacing between tiles, even when properly washed down.
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.
