    TREND ALERT: Bring on the brick

    With a newly launched range by Parkside, designers and architects can now create an industrial brick aesthetic with porcelain… 

    Trusted tile specification company Parkside has launched Tyne, a highly-versatile brick-effect wall and floor porcelain tile that’s ready to create a stunning brick and mortar aesthetic in the most demanding commercial environments.

    Waterproof, frost-proof and resistant to mould and stains, Tyne delivers impressive authenticity in 13 colourways, each capturing the character and variation found in handmade bricks. Ranging from classic colours of red and multi through earthy tones in mud and sand to a palette of bolder blue and grey hues, the 250 x 60mm tile brings a new depth to brick-effect finishes.

    Through a variety of surface textures and subtle nuances in colour, the tile avoids tell-tale repeats for a look that’s indistinguishable from real bricks, bringing a raw, semi-industrial look to commercial interiors. Ideal for bars, restaurants and hospitality locations, Tyne has a matt finish with 36+ shod foot performance, delivering a safer underfoot surface.

    Ian Mattacola, product manager, Parkside: “With the launch of Tyne we’re demonstrating our ability to offer exclusive and inspirational tiles that provide architects, interior designers and specifiers with the very best in authentic looks coupled with great performance for commercial interiors. With faithful attention to the original material, we’ve been able to ensure that Tyne can provide an accurate brick look while bringing the benefits of hardwearing, low-maintenance porcelain tiles to a broad range of projects.”

    With a denser and less porous clay than normal ceramic, Tyne’s porcelain material is better suited to demanding commercial environments, where its hardness and durability ensure a resilient surface. And with low water-porosity that makes it suitable for outdoor use, Tyne can continue its striking brick-like effect in outdoor bars, open-air dining areas and more.

    Parkside is making the exclusive Tyne available from stock in all 13 colourways, giving designers and specifiers access to the collection in as little as a couple of days.
