RAK launches encaustic-styled Cronto Collection
RAK Ceramics has launched a new range of encaustic-styled porcelain tiles. The new on-trend Cronto Collection includes 15 rustic wall and floor tiles, in a mix of plain and decorative designs. Patterns include traditional hotchpotch decors and retro-shapes, giving tremendous design scope in a range of natural tones.
Plain Cronto tiles are offered in cream, beige, sand, anthracite, black and dark black. The six shades are included in each of the patterned designs, so that the two styles of tile match perfectly. The decor designs include five 3D effect retro designs and four traditional encaustic styles.
All tiles measure 30.5 x 30.5cm and have a rustic, matt finish, which provides an R9 slip rating. Cronto is ideal for both commercial and residential environments, where it provides an exceptionally durable surface that is water and stain resistant.
The new collection is featured in RAK's 2016 Tile Collection brochure, alongside the new Coheba, Newport, Metropol and Zig Zago ranges.
