Florida Tile introduces Retroclassique


ReliveThe Retroclassique series from Florida Tile is our newest glazed ceramic wall tile collection. The essence of old yet new, Retroclassique represents a classic style that will never age. The 3×6 subway tiles with large decoratives were a staple of Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian styles at the turn of the Century. Whether a regal mansion or urban Brownstone, the classic look was embraced then and still continues today. In the tradition of hand-molded tiles, Retroclassique features slightly rounded edges and corners, a soft undulating surface and a thick 9mm body. The product of several years of research, the result is a tile that delivers a message of luxury. Solid colors are kept classic with Bright White (Lily) and Almond (Linen). Along with these two classic colors, we offer four earthy tones created by using a fume’ technique giving each tile a unique pattern and natural color variation. Giving this line its true modern, yet vintage look are the decoratives. The two 6” long Chair Rail options are a large 4” and 2” high, respectively, while the Listellos are a stylized floral motif and a circular repeating pattern that in multi-purpose, can be cut into 3 squares and used as an insert. This ample wall tile collection will give an added touch of elegance to your home or to your next design collaboration. This tile is suitable for all residential and commercial wall, backsplash and countertop applications, it is GREENGUARD® certified for indoor air quality. http://www.floridatile.com/products/retroclassique

eTape16 digital measuring tool


0915-etapeeTape16™ is a feature-rich digital measuring tool for homeowners and professionals. Designed by a professional builder and MIT graduate, eTape16 has a traditional metal blade, available in U.S., Metric, or U.S. and Metric markings plus a large, easy-to-read digital readout that is accurate to 1/16” or 1 mm. Push a button to read the measurement easily in inches, feet, fractions, and decimals, and convert to metric. It toggles between outside measurement of the blade length alone and inside measurement, which automatically adds the 3” width of the tape measure case to the readout. eTape16 has three built-in memories: “hold,” which retains a measurement even after the blade has withdrawn into the case, and two long-term memories that will retain readings even after the tape shuts off and until they are overwritten. There is also a function that automatically calculates the center point of a measurement. Finally, the re-zero function lets you measure the distance from a previously measured point without withdrawing the blade. This is ideal for measuring intervals without having to re-anchor the end of the blade for each measurement. The tape operates on a CR2032 coin battery that can last for up to 64 hours of continuous use. www.etape16.com
