New Campisi porcelain tile collection is first Daltile line featuring Cliks
Daltile's new Campisi floor tile is the first in the line to feature the Cliks Uniclic tongue-and-groove interlocking joints and built-in grout system - a modern, easy-to-install locking floor tile that simply clicks together. No mortar or grout is needed, simplifying installation and making it possible to transform a room in just one afternoon with no mess.
Cliks' built-in grout was custom created to complement each colour in the new collection and with exceptional resistance to cracking, fading, staining, mould and mildew, the built-in grout is long-lasting and easy to maintain. Additionally, there is no need to mix, measure, apply or seal grout, making the installation process clean and simple. In fact, because Cliks features built-in grout that never requires sealing, Cliks floors require less maintenance than traditional tile floors.
Cliks is designed to be used on interior floors that are not exposed to standing water, making them ideal for use on entryways, living areas, kitchens, basements and bathrooms (except showers). The tiles can be installed over any existing interior solid-surface floor, including concrete, hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone, vinyl and linoleum. Because the tiles do not require mortar or grouting, there is no drying time.
Cliks is part of Daltile's new Campisi collection, complete with traditionally installed wall and mosaic tiles, accents and wall trim, and certified by the Porcelain Tile Certification Agency of the US. Enhanced with innovative Reveal Imaging, Campisi tiles are virtually indistinguishable from natural travertine stone and reflect classic styling.
Campisi glazed porcelain tile emulates the look of crosscut travertine and is available in three warm shades (Alabaster, Linen and Sable). Campisi comes in a 12" x 12" Cliks floor tile, which can be installed in a grid or brickwork pattern. Two matching traditionally installed tiles (9" x 12" wall tile and 2" x 2" mosaic tile) and two coordinating decorative wall accents complete the series, allowing homeowners to create a finished, professional look throughout the entire room. The 9" x 12" and 2" x 2" mosaic can be installed with traditional mortar and grout for use in showers and other wet areas.
In addition to worry-free installation with Cliks, Campisi tiles are infused with Microban antimicrobial protection, which provides a layer of protection from stain- and odor-causing bacteria that won't wash off or wear away, keeping the tile cleaner between cleanings.
A complete installation kit that includes a tapping block, pull bar and spacers is available, but sold separately. Additionally, customers can view a DIY installation video in-store or watch it online.
