The Santiago Grey Slate Effect Porcelain Wall and Floor tile takes inspiration for it's grey tones from the mountain range of the Andes that surround the city of Santiago. These grey tones have been infused with a slate effect pattern giving it that beautiful and luxurious feel of slate without the need of sealing. While this tile really does look like it has a riven finish , the modern technology used by the factory has enabled them to create this realistic 3D slate effect while maintaining a relatively flat surface, however, this tile features an innovative slip resistant surface which means when the tile becomes wet it increases traction underfoot, resulting in an impressive R12 slip rating. This tile is perfect for surfaces that would be harder to clean if a very textured tile was used. Using one of our LTP cleaners , this floor is very easy to maintain with a minimum of effort. The neutral grey tone of our Santiago Grey Slate Effect Wall And Floor Tile gives you that understated slate effect while adding an intriguing pattern to your project. By combining this tile with one of our underfloor heating systems you really can have the best of both worlds.
