About

Introducing the stunning Larix Plank, a porcelain wood-look floor tile that brings a touch of natural beauty to any space. Inspired by the genus Larix, the Larix Plank is reminiscent of the tapered and textured wood that dominates the temperate-cold zones of the northern hemisphere.

Measuring 147mm by 900mm, the Larix Plank tile is perfect for creating a cohesive and visually pleasing look in larger rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. Its smooth, matte glazed finish adds a distinct aura of sophistication and warmth to any space, evoking the natural feel of wood without the hassle of upkeep.

This wood-look floor tile boasts a range of benefits that sets it apart from conventional flooring options. Unlike wood floors, the Larix Plank tile is waterproof and easy to maintain, making it ideal for use in high-moisture areas. Its durable porcelain construction guarantees that it stands up to wear and tear, resisting scratches and stains - perfect for areas with heavy foot traffic.

The Larix Plank tile is the perfect choice for anyone looking to imbue their space with understated elegance and natural charm. With its smooth, matte finish and rich texturing, this porcelain tile creates a sense of warmth and comfort, reimagining the beauty of nature in a modern interior. 

We recommend you use the right spacing and adhesive for this elegant heavy-duty tile for best and long lasting results. Please also take note that laying of wood look tiles in a brick or running bond pattern should be carefully considered because of potential tile lipping (or lippage) caused by the curvature of large format tiles. A maximum offset of 30% is strongly recommended. See photo in the carousel to help you understand better.

How To Install Tiles

  • As with everything you buy, it is important to check that you are 100% happy with the product before you install. Please compare the product to the images you saw online, check the shades and colour of the tile before you start. If you are not on-site, get your tiler to send you an image of a dry layout to approve. 
  • When you are ready, make sure that surface is dry, clean, flat and firm. Do not tile on old floor coverings like vinyl tiles.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Make sure there are expansion joints in the screed.

  • Tiles are a fashion item and as new tile designs come in, you may not get the same size and shade of tile as what you originally bought.
  • Always buy 15% more meter squared of tiles than the size of the area you will be covering, as there will be offcuts when installing.
  • Always keep a spare box or two of tiles, for future renovations and incidentals.

  • Make sure you have read any brand-specific instructions, listed on your tile box before starting to tile. 
  • For Kilimanjaro tiles, for example, make sure you are following the extrusion lines on the back of the tile when laying your tiles
  • Start tiling in the middle of the area.
  • Make sure you’re using the correct adhesive for the application.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Apply adhesive evenly using a notched trowel. (Apply 1m2 at a time)
  • Only mix enough adhesive to use within 1 hour.
  • Work over small areas so the adhesive does not dry.
  • Scrape away excess adhesive, separating each tile from the next.
  • All tiles must be fully embedded using a rubber mallet.
Start-tiling-new
  • Start off by creating building lines in your work space. This will allow you to achieve straight lines.
  • Do not butt join tiles. Please use recommended spacing on box or in the product details.
  • For Kilimanjaro tiles please use a minimum tile spacing of 8mm and above. 
  • When tiling large areas. Create expansion joints to allow for structural movement.
  • This is done by using a flexible compound (such as silicone) between tiles.
  • Expansion joints should be made every 9m2.
  • The perimeter joint needs to be 5-8mm.

  • Make sure all the joints are clean.
  • Apply the grout using a rubber squeegee.
  • Grouting should be done 24 hours after the installation of the tiles to allow, the tile to set properly.
  • Once the grout has set the entire area must be cleaned, with a damp cloth, Grout Off and Easy Clean, Cleaning agents are recommended.
  • Avoid walking on the tiles for 2-3 days to prevent loosening of the tiles.
