Antico Wood wood-effect floor tile 15x90cm by Ceramica Campani (Italy).
A glazed porcelain tile with a softly textured matt finish and frost-proof glaze. With modern manufacturing and digital printing, plank tiles like the Antico Wood can capture the homely charm of real wooden flooring by imitating the soft pale wood of the Larch tree. Digitally printed tiles like this do not require sealing and cannot warp or rot like real wood. Also known as Listoni Antico Miele.
If tiling the Antico Wood in brickbond do not use an overlap of greater than 25% as these tiles are not rectified. Plank tiles such as this can create an illusion of space in smaller rooms because of fewer grout lines.
Frost-proof tiles are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
Ceramica Campani has been an Italian manufacturer of tiles since 1957 which draws its inspiration from natural textures to create new tile concepts. In 2012 it was bought by the Kale Group which has allowed the historic brand to continue to grow.
