Earth and technology for sustainable building

<br/>From an ancient past to a responsible future


From an ancient past to a responsible future


An eco-friendly, organic and technologically discerning material traces the origins of earth as an ancient building material with the customary bold and visionary look of Floor Gres, geared towards the most modern environmentally-friendly living trends. This is EARTHTECH/. The industrial history of Floor Gres, in which intuition and technology are merged with a keen focus on the quest for aesthetic appeal, results in a full body collection, produced to the highest standards of sustainability, contributing towards building the city of the future.

The collection injects new life into the earth through a sustainable production process, with a strong focus on green management, to offer the architect an exceptional technical and aesthetic performance in compliance with the socio-environmental context and the latest eco-friendly building needs. With EARTHTECH/ by Floor Gres, a brand focused on the technological creation of materials which respect nature, earth becomes “technical earth” with a highly innovative content, offering new solutions to green architecture and fulfilling the new frontiers of circular economy in construction, guaranteeing a sustainable future.

EARTHTECH/ offers a choice of organic textures to observe and touch, thanks to the wide range of finishes (Comfort, Glossy-Bright and structured) which add a tactile and unexpected perceptivedimension for use in all types of application.

The technology


EARTHTECH/ is also a return to the origins of the Floor Gres brand through a full body technical product that blends surface and thickness and derives from the spontaneous mixing of carefully pre-selected fragments and pigments of different shades which give the material a unique, one-of-a-kind visual effect in each slab, mimicking the amazing variety of colours and elements in nature. The result is a composite product with a textured design, in which the flakes and aggregate grains create an original mélange effect that is vitrified during firing, producing a robust, high-quality and exceptionally strong and wear-resistant product; one which can be used in any type of building setting and weather conditions, even the harshest.
