Montana is the latest finish in the innovative PAR-KER range from Spanish manufacturer, Porcelanosa Group.
September 16th, 2011
This season, their Venis factory has released a range of timber-look porcelain tiles that soften any space with their muted tones and soft, natural grain.
The Montana series is available in eight colours from cool whites through soft greys and warm honeys: Blank, Taupe, Wild, Cottage, Noce, Doussie and Ash.
The PAR-KER range of tiles allows free use of timber throughout internal and external areas, without the drawbacks of the raw material. Unlike timber, PAR-KER requires no felling of trees and no ongoing maintenance in terms of sanding and resealing. It is non-porous, UV resistant and hard wearing.
Commercially, domestically, inside and out, PAR-KER offers the look and feel of timber but all the benefits of tile.
The Montana range has been produced using the Porcelanosa Group’s inkjet technology. This allows the range to express true to form notches, grains and texture, just as real timber would. This process also ensures a non-repetitive print, so the product can be used with the assurance of “natural movement” throughout floors and walls.
Montana offers a stunning colour pallet, the subtle beauty of timber and all the confidence of a technical porcelain product.
