Home News AO launches new Montesano

Dallas, Texas—American Olean (AO) launched its new Montesano collection of stone-look porcelain tile featuring StepWise technology. The new product is designed to give customers a chic and contemporary quartzite visual for use on both floors and walls. With the addition of StepWise technology, the tile and mosaic assortment is beneficial indoors and outdoors, according to AO. StepWise provides 50% more slip-resistance than ordinary tile.

“With a stone-like finish and earthy colors, Montesano recreates the visual of a stunning quartzite,” said Shelly Halbert, director of product design, Dal-Tile Corporation. “To give a visual and tactile accent to the product, we incorporated a soft structure which mimics nature and gives a raw and natural aesthetic. With the addition of Stepwise that enhances the DCOF, consumers can feel confident using Montesano on outdoor patios and around the pool, in addition to indoor use on floors, walls, countertops and shower floors.”

Montesano is offered in a 15 x 30 size that aims to create an atmosphere of style and a contemporary vibe. The 15 x 30 large format makes spaces look larger with fewer grout lines, according to AO. Montesano also includes a chevron cut mosaic that brings a beautiful accent to backsplashes, fireplace walls, showers, planters and feature walls both indoor and out, the company said. Montesano is offered in a range of on-trend neutrals, and is Made in the USA, AO added.
