Settecento Vintage | Italian Porcelain Tile
Vintage, a porcelain series is a 19 x 19 inch tile with a parquet look. Hardwood flooring cut into elegant geometric patterns was originally used exclusively in royal houses and in the estates of French nobility. The ornamental flooring is now available, through advanced inkjet technology, in a glazed porcelain.
Colors, Size & Trim
| SOVERE ||Rovere|
|SOVERE/1919||19 x 19|
|SOVERE/SBN||3 X 19 Surface Bullnose|
The Surface Bullnose is made from field tile that is cut, ground and then glazed.
The bullnose pieces look like solid wood and do not have the parquet pattern.
Usage & Installation
Most Italian manufacturers recommend a maximum offset of 8” (20cm) on all large format tiles when setting running bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles ANSI A108.02 Section 4.3.8.
We suggest using a matching grout color to make the grout joints less visible and maximize the authenticity of the parquet look.
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.
