Crossville launches new slate-inspired tile collection

CrossvilleCrossville, Tenn.—Crossville has launched its new Ardesia a Spacco porcelain tile panel collection. Inspired by Pietra di Lavagna slate from Liguria, Italy, these unique panels are crafted to replicate the appearance and structural depth of split-gauged stone. The line is made in Italy by Laminam.

Ardesia a Spacco is offered in two versatile, through-body colors, Bianco (white) and Nero (black) and a 1200mm x 3000mm size format. Mesh backing provides enhanced strength and durability for use on floors and walls in commercial or residential settings, according to the company.

Crossville said the authenticity of the collection’s slate look is enhanced by variances of depth across the surface of the panels. The 5.6mm standard thickness alters up to 1.5mm across the surface to realistically mimic stone’s dimensional attributes.

“The subtle clefts make Ardesia a Spacco visually stunning,” said Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s vice president of marketing. “The way light plays over the true stone dimensions and texture gives the panels great depth and interest.”

The nuances in depth across the panels are achieved through some of the latest innovations in porcelain tile manufacturing technology, according to the company.

“This collection is produced by Laminam in Italy using leading-edge production techniques,” Waldrep added. “It represents the amazing progression of what’s possible for porcelain tile today.”

Though Ardesia a Spacco aims to capture the appearance of natural slate, Crossville said the durability of the collection stands in contrast to natural slate’s more tender qualities.

As Waldrep explained: “Real slate is friable and not very resistant to elements, limiting its use as a material in many areas of application. With this new collection, designers can bring the desired style of slate to even the most demanding commercial projects.”
