MIAMI, FL -- Two Tile of Spain-branded manufacturers The Size and Plaza Cerámicas have been honored at the 2012 KBCULTURE Awards.

The Size won the Surfacing category for its "Neolith" porcelain product, a 5/16-inch surfacing slab product -- available up to 145 inches long -- that can render joints in counter stretches obsolete. It doesn't stain or scratch, is heat resistant and is available in many diverse and neutral colors.

 

"The thinness of the material contradicts its categorization as a 'slab' surfacing," said Clagett. "It's more like a 'sheet'. Installers should appreciate the lightness of the product - it's so much easier to lift and move than stone contours. It gives an especially modern look with an undermount sink."

 

Plaza Cerámicas received an honorable mention in the Tile category for its "Eco-Logik” porcelain floor tile that boasts 85% recycled material content that sets a high standard for both eco-conscious manufacturing and performance. It is non-porous, slip-resistant and durable.

 

"The 25-year warranty for residential use speaks volumes about the manufacturer's confidence in the tile's performance,"states Clagett.
