With the Wood-look ceramic trend on fire it’s not too surprising to see innovations from the installation side.
In the quick-laying category, the Fast Collection from Italian manufacturer Del Conca, is a ceramic tile collection that can be put down quickly over any existing floor surface without the use of mortar or grout.
The tiles in this patented collection are snapped together and create a continuous surface without joints. This system can also be uninstalled and reused.
Three collections are available within the Fast Connect Line; Monte Napoleone Fast, Saloon Fast and Forma Fast. Monte Napoleone and Saloon offer plank tiles that look like wood. The Forma collection looks like cement planks.
This tile is marketed to the DIYer and is carried by Home Improvement Stores.
Del Conca will start manufacturing this tile in Loudon Tennessee in 2014 in their new 320,000-square foot facility. Currently 75% of Del Conca tile is exported to the US.
