Advantages of imitation wood ceramic flooring

Covering our imitation wood platelet floors provides numerous advantages over wood cladding:


Imitation wood ceramic tiles are the most unalterable over time. The durability of wood is noticeably reduced if it is not cared for properly.

Invulnerability against external environmental agents

  • Humidity : it is the external agent that most damages wood. Wood effect ceramic stoneware floors are invulnerable to humidity as they have a water absorption coefficient of less than 0.5%.
  • Fire : the imitation wood ceramic stoneware flooring is fire retardant (rejects combustion and protects against fire). Wood is vulnerable to fire.
  • Rain : imitation wood ceramic floors are the most suitable since they are waterproof . Wood is not suitable for the exterior as it needs to be treated from time to time with varnishes, paints and seals in order to prevent deterioration caused by rain.
  • Sun : Wood loses its color when exposed to the sun’s rays. Imitation wood ceramic tiles are much more resistant and do not lose their color due to damage caused by sunlight.
  • Temperature : imitation wood ceramic floors have a minimum level of porosity, which provides their resistance to abrasions caused by high temperatures or frost and also to sudden changes in temperature that can damage their integrity. Temperature and its variation can affect the architecture of wood by reducing or expanding its size and dimension.
  • Fungi and insects : The imitation wood ceramic stoneware floor is immune to attacks by fungi and insects. Xylophagous insects, such as woodworms or termites, cause serious damage to wood since they feed on it and are difficult to combat.
