Lanka brings modern appeal with classic style to wall tile with their rectangular Bloc series. With two finishes — glossy and matte — and a broad color palette, infinite design options are possible. Different colors can be blended for a fresh feel. Additional texture can be created by mixing glossy and matte finishes in tandem, and the two building block sizes allow for interesting patterns. Here’s the opportunity to create a new twist on the “standard white“.

Bloc series is unrectified. When mixing sizes and finishes, it is advisable to do the layout with actual tiles before installation.
Shade variation may occur between field sizes and between field and trims due to the shape of trim pieces and nature of trim production. Bloc is intended for interior walls. If installing with a cement-based adhesive, it is recommended to use a flexible setting material. All substrates should be properly reinforced to be sure there is no movement. For mortar installations, the mortar bed has to be cured (less than 2% humidity) and has to have proper reinforcing. Most manufacturers recommend a maximum offset of one-third (1/3) of the length of the tile on all large format tiles when setting a runnning bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles, ANSI A 108.2 Section 4.3.8.
