Hannover Steel floor tile 40x60cm by Baldocer (Spain).
A glazed porcelain tile with a riven matt surface and frost-proof finish. As a digitally printed stone-effect tile, the Hannover Steel imitates natural brecciated stone without the inherent variation found in natural products. It has a textured relief finish which adds a subtle depth of realism to the design and is suitable for all domestic and light commercial uses.
A growing demand combined with modern manufacturing has lead to the availability of affordable large format tiles. Also known as XL tiles, or simply “big” tiles, they create an illusion of space in busy homes as bigger tiles means fewer grout lines. They are ideal for open-plan kitchens, dining areas, living rooms and conservatories. Large format tiles may require two people for fitting and should be back-buttered to ensure that suitable contact with the tile is achieved. We recommend trowelling the substrate with a thick solid bed trowel (usually 12mm).
Frost-proof tiles like the Hannover Steel 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.
