Chromtech 1.0 by Floor Gres
Chromtech 1.0 is a series of through-body porcelain tiles, manufactured in Italy by Floor Gres. This series updates the original, highly popular and innovative Chromtech series, by emphasizing the importance of neutrality in modern architecture with both warm and cool colors. Three of the colors in the series, Cool/4.0, Warm/4.0 and Warm/5.0 meet the requirements set by the LEED building rating system and may be used to earn LEED MR Credits 4.1 and 4.2. Tiles in these colors have been certified by Bureau Veritas.
Colors + Finishes
There are five warm and five cool colors in the Chromtech 1.0 product line. Each color is available in Matte, Polished and a three-dimensional Point finish, which is available in 12"x12" and 12"x24" tiles only. Point is notable both for its aesthetic and non-slip characteristics.
Chromtech 1.0 is available in the following nominal (and actual) sizes:
12"x12 (11.81"x11.81"), 12"x24" (11.81"x23.62"), and 24"x24" (23.62"x23.62") tiles.
Mosaics, listello patterns and trim pieces are also available.
