Area Pro, a new Porcelain Stoneware series created for Agrob Buchtal by leading European designer Sebastian Herkner successfully combines functionality and amazing aesthetics like no other product in its class. Inspired by natural limestone, the range is available in 12 colours. Colours have been designed with Agrob Buchtals’ ChromaPlural range in mind providing not only great colour matches, but also compatible module sizes enabling well planned room layouts and opportunities for sophisticated patterns.
Slip resistances range from R10/A through to R12V4 incorporating a textured surface called “the Grid” which is organic and visually interesting whilst still satisfying the requirements of a V rated surface. The R12V4 Grid profile is rated as a P5 under a Pendulum Test, provides a Class C Barefoot Slip Rating and exceptional long term wear characteristics. Together with the V rated profile the slip rating characteristics makes the R12V4 surface an ideal choice for swimming pool concourse areas and associated amenity / change room floors.
Format choices are vast, with Area Pro available in rectangular and square formats, as sheeted mosaics and in extra-large formats including 60x90cm, 60x120cm and 90X90cm. An exciting addition is the introduction of the R12V4 profile in a large 60x60cm format alongside the more conventional 20x20cm format. For the first time in Australia designers can now obtain the desired V rated profile which is preferred in applications where liquids and water can accumulate on the tile surface (eg. Pool concourses, change rooms and commercial kitchens) in a large format porcelain quality tile.
Agrob Buchtal have ensured the range is comprehensive by including a large range of accessories including ceramic channel covers (for pool gutter covers), matching basins and shower trays, wall tiles in three complementary colours (white, grey and beige), stair tiles, internal and external corners and coved skirtings.
Importantly, Area Pro comes with Agrob Buchtal’s sustainable Hytect technology which delivers a material which is stain resistant, easy to clean, anti-bacterial and neutralises pollutants and odours. Independent reports have demonstrated that the Hytect surface combined with the V rated profiles provides significant cost reductions in maintenance and cleaning costs.
