The Suburb series is a glazed porcelain, manufactured in the United States. The manufacturer promotes green manufacturing processes and sustainable products. The beauty and color variation in natural stone are emulated in this series. Because this material is a porcelain product, minimal maintenance is required. This series is available in four, earthy hues, each of which provides contrasts between pieces, imitating the exceptional qualities of stone. There will be noticeable variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. Piece to piece variation in shade or color are inherent in all fired clay products; therefore, it is recommended to mix tiles from several boxes at a time during installation to achieve the best range of color. When mixing sizes within a series, shade, texture and calibration differences should be expected. This series is suitable for residential and commercial applications.
For proper bonding, medium bed mortar should be used when installing tiles with a dimensional length greater than 15”, and rectangular shape and plank tile, per industry standards. Proper thinset coverage is also necessary, and in some cases, back buttering of tile may be required.
