LEXINGTON, KY -- Florida Tile continues to expand its offerings of high definition porcelain tile with the launch this month of the newest product line, Gallant HDP - High Definition Porcelain™ inspired by 2,000 years of classical stone.

Florida Tile introduces its Gallant HDP - High Definition PorcelainTM series, which was inspired by natural stone such as Carrara marble from Italy (pictured). 

"Gallant brings together in high definition porcelain tile some of the world's most beautiful smooth stone looks which have been featured in not only large-scale civic projects, but also private homes for more than two millennia," said Sean Cilona, Marketing Director of Florida Tile. "The Gallant line showcases the look of Carrara and Botticino marble, Honey Onyx and classic travertine -- all in a collection of six colors."

Gallant is presented in a large-format 18- x 18-inch matte porcelain floor tile, and is complemented by a 9- x 18-inch ceramic wall tile in a shiny finish. Both types are smooth to the touch, which gives the line a dramatic surface contrast.

Each color is matched with its own coordinating listellos, chair rails and corners as well as floor and wall bullnose and mosaics.

"Gallant also expands the success of the Renaissance and Pristine lines by providing an even greater number of floor/wall design combinations," explained Cilona.

Gallant porcelain floor tile is appropriate for all residential and commercial wall and countertop applications and residential floor applications, reports Florida Tile. Gallant ceramic wall tile is appropriate for all residential and commercial interior wall and countertop applications.

Additionally, the Gallant line is Greenguard and Porcelain Tile Certified.
