The tile firm will be taking part in CERSAIE, the international trade fair, held in Bologna
(Italy) from September 25th to 29th.
Floor tiles able to withstand wheeled traffic and raised access floor systems on a
wooden base for use on flat roofs and terraces two examples of the innovations
showcased at the trade fair.
Gres Aragón specializes in tile solutions for architecture, such as energy-efficient
ventilated façades, volumetric tiles, pool tile systems, and high-performance floor tiles.
Once again, Gres Aragón-Faveker will be taking part in CERSAIE, the international ceramic tile
show, held in Bologna (Italy) from September 25th to 29th. The tile manufacturer will again be presenting advanced tile solutions for architecture, the construction sector, and state-of-the-art homes.
One star new product to be presented for the first time is Aradeck: a raised access floor system featuring extruded ceramic tiles, with all the high-performance properties typical of tile extrusion technologies.
Aradeck can be mounted on pedestals and joists, but what really sets it apart from other systems is the fact that it can also be mounted on a wooden base and used on flat roofs or terraces in many areas of homes or buildings. Not only is this system functional and highly efficient from an operative perspective, but it also ensures better air circulation, refrigeration and sound insulation when it is used in indoor spaces.
Gres Aragón-Faveker, a specialist in the manufacture of extruded porcelain tiles, will also be
showcasing its latest innovationsin energy-efficient ventilated façades, special tiles, volumetric tile models, pool systems, and floor tiles for indoors and out.
The versatility of Urban20mm: from beaches to wheeled traffic
At Cersaie, visitors will also be able to check out the Urban20mm collection, made up of resistant 20mm-thick porcelain tiles suitable for any use. The 60x60cm tiles come in differing shades of white, grey and beige.
Urban20mm can be used indoors and out, in raised access floor systems, or directly on outdoor lawns, sand or gravel. When the tiles are bonded with adhesive or cement adhesive, they are so resistant that they can withstand wheeled traffic. Urban20mm can be used for places like terraces, parks, beaches, and even parking areas. Gres Aragón’s Bioklinker anti-bacterial treatment also ensures greater hygiene.
Faveker: 40% energy savings and 100% recyclable solutions
During CERSAIE, Faveker will be displaying its latest solutions in energy-efficient ventilated façades clad with extruded ceramic tiles. These façade systems, perfect for newbuilds or refurbishment projects, allow for energy savings of up to 40%.
In addition to the thermal insulation and high-performance properties of Faveker’s façades, they also stand out for their 48% recycled content. What is more, the façade systems can be fully recycled, a key factor in circular economy building criteria.
