Daltile Launching New ‘TREAD’ Line Of 2 cm Outdoor Porcelain Pavers At Hardscapes North America Tradeshow
DALLAS – October 16, 2019 – Daltile is officially launching its new TREAD line of 2cm outdoor porcelain pavers this week at the Hardscapes North America (HNA) tradeshow, in the Daltile booth (#22005). Daltile’s new TREAD program offers the stunning looks of wood, quartzite, assorted stone, slate, French limestone, and Belgian bluestone in durable porcelain pavers that are fade-proof, stain-proof, scratch-resistant, fade-resistant, fire-resistant, and slip-resistant. Also featured in the booth are Daltile outdoor vertical porcelain tiles that nicely coordinate with TREAD products to create stunning outdoor living spaces.

“In recent years we have seen the continued growth of outdoor living spaces, signifying that this trend is here to stay,” said Phil Graves, sales director for Daltile. “Porcelain tile is well-suited for outdoor areas, due to the unsurpassed durability of the material and its inherent ability to withstand the harshest of conditions. Porcelain is also easy to maintain, outperforming many other outdoor materials.”

“As a fashion-driven brand, Daltile continually brings the hottest trends and most savvy designs to market,” said Laura Grilli, lead product designer for Daltile. “Our new Daltile TREAD Porcelain Paver collections are by far the best-looking outdoor paving materials on the market today. Combining our porcelain pavers with their coordinating vertical porcelain tiles easily creates outdoor living spaces that are every bit as luxurious and high-style as today’s indoor living spaces.”

TREAD Porcelain Pavers
The new TREAD Porcelain Paver program is made up of six collections, including two new assortments and four popular existing collections.

New for 2019 are Commissary and Assemble. Commissary brings the rustic beauty of natural wood to exterior floors and is available as 24x24 or 16x48 porcelain pavers. The glamourous Assemble assortment of porcelain pavers offers unique stone-look visuals for a contemporary, modern offering. Available in a large-format 32x32 paver, Assemble can be coordinated with the new Assemble interior flooring tiles to create a seamless look from indoors to outdoors.

The existing porcelain paver collections that are now part of the TREAD line include Ambassador, Diplomacy, Delegate, and Dignitary. Ambassador is inspired by fine-grained quartzite found in the Swiss Alps, adding high-end style to the space. Available in a 16x48 size and two distinct colors, Ambassador has a timeless, yet modern look for a variety of design possibilities. Deftly delivering the quiet strength and visual beauty of quarried Belgian bluestone, Diplomacy is available in two hues that come alive with movement. Two sizes of porcelain pavers – 24x24 or the larger 20x40 – pair with a coordinating brick-joint mosaic and trim package to create a magnificent space crowned by an authentic stone look. Delegate is a sedimentary slate-inspired design offering a rich graphic with depth and gentle color movement. Available in a 20x40 size, Delegate pavers add visual interest to exterior spaces. The 24x24 Dignitary replicates French limestone embedded with fossil layers and natural veins, bringing ageless dimension to every application.

Coordinating Vertical Porcelain Tiles
Assemble, Ambassador, Diplomacy, Delegate, and Dignitary offer coordinating vertical porcelain tiles and mosaics, ideal to use as the feature wall behind an outdoor barbeque, the backsplash of an outdoor kitchen, or the face of an outdoor fireplace, creating a cohesive look in exterior living spaces.
