Dallas—Daltile has unveiled one of its largest, most stylish product launches ever with five new collections: Franciscan Slate, Coastal Keystones, Terrace, Ion Metals and Gallian Park. The tile brand has also extended of its popular Stone Radiance line to include three new color blends.
“From the natural beauty of slate and the cool luxury of glass to the familiar warmth of hardwoods and the sophisticated elegance of metal, these new collections feature many of today’s fashionable looks,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, senior marketing director. “We’re particularly excited about the Franciscan Slate collection, which features one of the most realistic stone visuals available on a tile surface through Daltile’s patented Reveal Imaging digital printing process.”
Additionally, the Franciscan Slate and Coastal Keystones collections are made in America with recycled materials, allowing them to help projects achieve points in green building certification programs, such as LEED.
Franciscan Slate is a glazed porcelain collection that emulates natural slate. Made in America with recycled materials, Franciscan Slate features four colors—Desert Crema, Woodland Verde, Terrain Marrone and Coastal Azul—with high color and texture variation through Daltile’s Reveal Imaging. Additionally, Franciscan Slate includes Microban antimicrobial protection to help keep the tile cleaner between cleanings.
It is available in two field tile sizes (18″x 18″ and 12″x 12″) and a 3″x 3″ mesh-mounted mosaic, as well as bullnose and cove base trim pieces. Additional linear and rectangular sizes are available through Linear Options, Daltile’s linear cutting service.
Franciscan Slate was designed to coordinate with decorative accents from many Daltile collections, including Brancacci, Brixton, Cristallo Glass and Massalia, and is appropriate for all residential applications, including floors, walls, countertops, exterior patios and exterior pool decks, and most commercial applications.
Coastal Keystones pairs ColorBody porcelain mosaic tile with clear and iridescent glass tiles by Oceanside in a range of sizes and hues for a modern look. The collection is an addition to the Keystones product offering, and its six sophisticated color blends—Coconut Beach, Tradewind, Caribbean Palm, Tropical Thunder, Sunset Cove and Treasure Island—are available in four mesh-mounted sizes, 1″x 1″ mosaic, 2″x 1″ straight-joint mosaic, 2″x 1″ brick-joint mosaic and a block-random mosaic that combines 2″x 2″, 2″x 1″ and 1″x 1″ sizes. Additionally, each block-random mosaic sheet may be cut into three 4″x 12″ accent borders.
Constructed of American-made, post-consumer recycled materials, Coastal Keystones are appropriate for floors, walls/backsplashes, countertops and exterior patios in residential settings and walls/backsplashes and pool linings in commercial settings, as well as limited floor applications in light commercial settings.
Blending the realistic look of hardwoods with the extreme durability of ColorBody porcelain, the Terrace collection gives the warmth of wood floors a contemporary twist.
