Not unlike Linen travertine in colour, Pluto’s creamy soul provokes pictures of buttery-coloured labrador puppies playing around a pool. Look out for Pluto, the new pup on the block!
|Why choose Pluto?||Pluto porcelain tiles are hard, dense and durable, making them very resistant to staining. What’s more, the colour variation in the tiles hides marks in between cleans. The ‘Grip’ finish is rated P5 due to the non-slip finish on the tiles, making them ideal for use around swimming pools and outdoor areas. The surface finish is comfortable on the skin and gentle enough for swimming costumes. The tiles are accurately sized, cut well and are easy to lay. Pluto is ideal for projects requiring a classic, upmarket appearance utilising cool warm tones. There are 10 tiles in the 600x400x20mm repeat, making it very difficult to tell that they are not natural stone.
|Maintenance||Minimal maintenance is required. These tiles do not require sealing. Porcelain’s dense surface absorbs very little moisture, so spills that might seep into another material and cause a stain, can easily be wiped up with a damp cloth or hosed off. Pluto generally only needs to be swept and cleaned with water and a mild detergent regularly. It is the perfect material for those who want a quality natural stone look with very little effort.|
