CROSSVILLE, TN — Crossville, Inc. recently announced the launch of 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.
“With complimentary hues and authentic texture, In-Side gives designers a contemporary solution for skinning walls and flooring,” said Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville vice president 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; and 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 1- x 3-meter sheets with the Laminam 5.6-mm 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.
