An emerging range at Solus Ceramics, Horizon is a beautifully authentic concrete inspired product with a host of impressive and practical qualities.
Not only do the tiles in the Horizon range look incredibly modern and trendy, but they can also be used in complex retrofits, refurbishments and of course, new projects.
With a thickness of only 6.5mm, Horizon is an especially thin product that can be applied to both walls and floors as long as the surface can bear the weight and the sub straight is compliant. Many may assume that thinner tiles offer less durability, but impressively the tiles in this range offer the same strength as standard 10mm thick tiles. In addition, unlike many other thin options, these tiles are not resin backed, which negates some typical fixing issues.
The thickness of the tiles also means that they are much lighter than normal large format tiles. Not only does this mean that they are easier to lay, but they are also more environmentally friendly to transport and additionally they are constructed from far less raw material.
The tiles can even be fitted over existing tiles, which could accommodate a very efficient retrofit of an existing area. Solus Ceramics have supplied this range to a refurbishment of a working shopping centre, successfully fixing them over existing tiles, whilst remaining accessible to the public.
Horizon is available in three super large formats including 1200x2400mm, 1200x1200mm and 600x1200mm. These monolithic, grandiose tiles can be used to create jaw-dropping schemes of impressive size and scale. Excellent wet pendulum test value results of more than 30 indicate that the Horizon range is an excellent choice for commercial projects such as retail units, offices and restaurants where slip resistance is essential.
