Profilitec has introduced a line of embossed surface finishes for ceramic tile wall coverings, The Wall Modern Line. Profilitec has designed The Wall Modern Line to match ceramic, cementine, concrete and stone effect tiles. The profiles, opaque and tactile, infuse a retro look with industrial style, creating a very modern motif. Profilitec’s new collection offers fast application, economical solutions, and lasting performance.

The Wall Modern Line is available in a wide variety of colors, ranging from warm to cool shades: Matte Black, Micaceous Grey, Dark Brown, Corten, Dove Grey, Khaki, Rusty White, Pastel Grey, and Cement Grey. Aluminum, brass, stainless steel and non-toxic synthetic materials with over 30 different types of trim finishes enable the user to coordinate with tile colors and grout and to create a decorative contrast. They can be used to join, protect, or simply decorate.

“Shabby Chic is making a comeback after first appearing on the design scene more than 25 years ago,” said Greg Gelston, Profilitec president. “Our new line has an industrial style, which has morphed into Industrial Chic.”

The unique, embossed texture contributes to the profiles’ high abrasion, impact resistance and provides an anti-glare surface due to reduced sunlight reflection.

The application of these “chic” profiles over the sharp corners is a true safeguarding measure, especially to prevent single firing ceramic tiles from chipping. The time-saving factor for installing this product is quite relevant when one can avoid the 45° corner cut. The profile will also help the layer for the line-up and the straight vertical edge. There are also solutions for internal corners, making them easy to clean.
