RAK Ceramics launches mega-slab tile
Company says 1.5m x 3m tile is the largest produced in the GCC region
The company unveiled the Maximus Mega Slab - a single, pressed ceramic tile measuring 1.5m x 3m - at the Cevisama trade show in Spain earlier this month.
RAK Ceramics said it can be used on walls or floors or to create surfaces such as work counters, and that its large size reduces the need for multiple joints or grouting. It argues that the slab can be used as an alternative to traditional granite and stone surfaces in kitchens, bathrooms and other spaces.
Its manufacture was made possible following RAK Ceramics' investment in SACMI Continua Technology.
CEO Abdallah Massaad said: "The new Maximus Mega Slab range should more rightfully be described as being individual works of art, not tiling."
