BCT56812 Conglomerate Feature floor tile 33x33cm by British Ceramic Tile.
A glazed ceramic tile with a smooth matt finish and frost-proof glaze measuring approximately 13 by 13 inches. The Conglomerate Feature is a classic patterned floor tile inspired by intricate terrazzo patterns. With it's modern pattern and strong graphical shapes this feature floor tile takes a traditional terrazzo look and turns it on its head for a 21st century look. Suitable in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways and conservatories, this provides a stunning modern look. Made in the UK.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Conglomerate Feature is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including repeating print patterns.
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.
