Oak wood is synonymous with quality and elegance and has been used since ancient times. Now, the wood obtained from majestic European, American, and Japanese oak trees comes to life in Casalgrande Padana’s new English Wood tile collection.
The new English Wood collection comes in six colours (Cheshire, Dean, Epping, Galloway, Highland, and Snowdonia) and three formats: 20×120 cm, 9 mm thick and with a natural and anti-slip Grip finish; 40×120 cm, 9 mm thick with a natural finish, and 40×120 cm, in the colours Cheshire, Galloway, and Snowdonia, with a 20 mm thickness and a Grip surface.
Versatile and flexible when combined with other stonware collections.
The high technical performance and texture that recalls the tactile loak decapto with its natural and changing ventures in contrast, offer the designer considerable expressive possibilities also in combination with other collections in porcelain stoneware of Casalgrande
Numerous laying combinations
Versatile and dynamic, the new English Wood collection also offers a variety of interesting laying solutions: from the more common straight laying patterns, parallel to the short or long side, depending on the size and depth of the room, to diagonal patterns.
In addition to these two “traditional” options, more elaborate solutions can be chosen, such as Italian, French or Hungarian herringbone. Also known as ‘chevron’, this pattern is particularly suitable for Scandinavian or industrial furnishing styles.
Environmentally sustainable, non-allergenic, antibacterial
Like all the Casalgrande Padana collections, English Wood tiles are environmentally sustainable, non-allergenic, antibacterial, thanks to the Bios Antibacterial® technology available upon request. In addition, they are fire-resistant, easy to lay and clean, hard-wearing, non-absorbent, and feature excellent flexural strength. Their exceptional mechanical strength maintains all their features unchanged over time.
As a result, these wood-effect tiles are not affected by temperature fluctuations, whatever the latitude, and never warp. What’s more, porcelain stoneware features high transmittance and thermal conductivity, making it one of the best choices in the event of underfloor heating. Underfloor heating has many advantages and not just from an aesthetic point of view. For example, it spreads heat evenly in all the rooms of the house, preventing mould formation. It also allows for significant energy savings as it integrates into other systems that use renewable and sustainable energy.
