The origins of grit floors, obtained by mixing marble granulate with concrete, date back to the 17th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, ancient techniques and new materials suggested the production of marble chips, particularly suitable for the creation of surfaces with a high decorative content.
Today, this type of floor is in great demand for the creation of environments where the floor is asked to infuse that warmth that other shinier, brighter, but colder materials cannot convey.
The "Venetian Tiles" are produced in the square formats 20 x 20 cm, 25 x 25 cm, 34 x 34 cm, 40 x 40 cm, and in the hexagonal formats h 20 cm and h 25 cm, for a thickness of approximately 2,5 cm.
The grit tiles are composed in the first layer of Portland cement, washed and de-dusted marble grit, marble powder and colored oxides for about 8 mm thickness; the second layer is a high-strength concrete with selected aggregates and has a thickness of about 17 mm.
The tile is supplied in the pre-polished version, to be polished on site.
The crushing and mixing of marble powders and the variability of raw materials can give rise to different shades in the floors.
