TerraTile specializes in unique floor and paving tiles. These tiles are unglazed, homogeneous, and extruded. This results in a pleasing appearance that looks and feels natural without sacrificing superior technical characteristics or durability.
Each tile offers a variety of technical specifications. These tiles have a water absorption rating of approximately seven percent, and each tile meets the industry standards for chemical resistance. The added durability of our tiles provides resistance against fading, fire, and dents. The tiles are also resistant to oils, acids, detergents, chemicals, frost, mold, and salt. That equates to flooring that always looks incredible.
TerraTile is ideal for nearly any application, including residential, commercial and industrial buildings and spaces. The durability and quality of the tiles allow for a wide range of possibilities. Use these tiles in commercial kitchens, restaurants, shopping centers, pathways, factories, railway stations, and food processing plants. The natural, slip-resistant, tough, unglazed surface allows for easy maintenance for any environment.
Terratile Color ChoicesSee More Examples
Our tiles come in four rich tones and colors: red, terracotta, cappuccino, and chocolate. These natural earth tones add warmth to any space and are easy to match with any color in your residential, commercial, or industrial space to perfectly accent other design elements. Remember that, depending on your monitor, colors may not appear accurate. We recommend ordering tile samples to decide on the final color. Colors may also vary between lots, allowing for unique shades and tones for every project.
Terratile Sizing Choices
The size of each individual tile affects the surface area and the number of total tiles that you need for your project. Each tile is a half-inch thick, ensuring durability and a light weight for easy installation. Tiles come in 12” x 12”, 16” x 16”, 20” x 20”, and 24” x 24” nominal dimensions. Choose your tile sizes wisely to fit your project and minimize the amount of cutting necessary. Our team at TerraTile can walk you through the process to help you determine the right tiles size for your space.
Style and shape Choices
Depending on the project and your own design preferences, you may want tiles that are different from the usual flat square. You can find a variety of style and shape choices to fit your design and project needs. These choices include 12” safety step nose and 12” single bull nose. We also offer 4” x 4” decorative tiles featuring unique designs stamped onto their faces to add an extra touch to your tile flooring.
If you want a truly tailored spin on your tile design, we offer custom made 12” by 12” mosaic patterns. These patterns allow you to mix and match the different colors and styles to create a mosaic that will make your flooring truly stand out. We can customize any pattern that you want. Our team can also work with you to develop design ideas that will fit your project and support your aesthetic needs. Contact us if you want to collaborate on a design or need help with a more customized approach to your tiles.
