Thin Tiles used for walls
One of the latest trends emerging are the use of Thin Tiles. These tiles are Made In Italy, and generally are as thin as 2.5mm to 4mm, while the standard thickness is 6mm. Now they are commonly used as kitchen splash backs. RAGNO have created a “Large Format” range of thin tiles in a marble style.
So what is the advantage of Thin Tiles? These tiles can be laid over existing tiles, without the need to remove old tile. So home renovators find these tiles very advantageous. This cuts the cost and burden of tile removal.
Importing costs are lower, resulting in a lower price point to the customer.
We carry three sizes in thin tile.
- 200 x 400 mm. This range is called the VOGUE range, and makes up one of our builders range.
- 300 x 600 mm. This range is called the FANTASY range. Available in white only.
- 1200×2400. Large Format.
