Crossville, Tenn.—Crossville, Inc. has launched its new In-Side porcelain tile panel collection. The unique appearance of this line mimics the look of Pietra del Cardoso, a deep-blue gray sandstone mined only in the Apuan Alps. The panels are crafted with a mixture of raw materials in variable grain sizes, resulting in a textural, blended tile surface that is much like that of natural stone, the company said.
“With complimentary hues and authentic texture, In-Side gives designers a contemporary solution for skinning walls and flooring,” explained Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville VP of marketing.
The collection comes in two color variations, each available in both matte and flamed finishes: Pietra-Di-Cardoso Grigio, a luxe gray tone, as well as Pietra-Di-Cardoso Nero, a nuanced black. The flamed finish, a feature new to this line, offers the variable texture of the bush hammered finish with a smooth sheen.
The panels come in 1m x 3m sheets with the Laminam 5.6mm thickness. They are suitable for interior wall and floor applications in both commercial and residential settings.
The generously proportioned outer dimensions yet extremely lean profile of the porcelain tile panels can be installed with minimal grout lines and may be applied directly over previously installed tile or stone.
