Manaos White wall and floor tile 45x90cm by Pamesa (Spain).
A glazed porcelain tile with a textured matt finish and rectified edges. As a digitally printed stone-effect tile, the Manaos White imitates real stone without the inherent variation found in natural products. Large format tiles such as this can create an illusion of space in smaller rooms because of fewer grout lines.
A rectified tile is a tile which has been mechanically cut to an exact size. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles can be rectified but it is typically more common with large porcelain floor tiles. Tiles that are not rectified can have very slight variations in size so rectification produces exact facial dimensions with more precise and narrow grout lines when tiling.
Frost-proof tiles like this 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.
Tiles classified as an anti-slip floor tile are assigned an ‘R’ value which runs along a scale from R9 (not tested but manufactured to a minimum standard) all the way through to R13 (the highest slip resistance). As the Manaos White has an R10 slip rating, it is most suitable for dry domestic areas such as kitchens.
