This has to be simply the most original replica of a flagstone we have witnessed in porcelain! Ancient French is a truly authentic reproduction of historic French limestone with a marvellous surface texture and bon fide aged edge – mirroring all the visual aesthetics you would see in the natural flagstone. The range is kept to 3 authentic limestone colours too, further enhancing the genuine flavour of this outstanding flagstone look porcelain floor tile. Marron (chestnut) is based on the architecturally important pale crimson-brown French limestones. A colour choice of gravitas and grandeur for sure. Beige is paler, with a subtle sandy hue giving a lightness and warmth to the tile reminiscent of the beautiful pale beige-grey Bath stone. Whilst Gris is the coolest tone; a contemporary pale grey based on the historic grey limestone that literally paved the streets of Paris but is no longer quarried. The magnificent surface texturing on these tiles just adds to the renowned time-worn appearance of real French limestone. So tactile you will just want to lie down and stroke it! Available in the one size of 90cm x 60cm enabling you to create that large slab flagstone floor look. Ancient French also offers all 3 colours in a dedicated 20mm thick external format so you can create that inside to outside flow so desirable now. 

With a dedicated 20mm external version available in all 3 colours, creating that modern flow from inside to out is simple.

Indoor Installation Points Large format porcelain tiles should be installed with a good quality S1 grade flexible adhesive and a fine grain grout (we offer Rocatex Ultimate & Ardex FS grout). For large tiles it is strongly recommended that levelling clips are used and joints should be staggered by a maximum of 30% of the length of the tile AKA staggered brick bond.
External Installation Points External formats are 20mm thick so can be installed on a standard MOT type 1 base, onto a prepared concrete/screed base or via a dry raised/floating installation using fixed or self-levelling pedestals. If installing onto MOT then a wet sand & cement mortar mix must be used with the addition of SBR & SBR mixed with powdered to cement to form a bonding slurry used to prime the backs of the impervious tiles to provide a key for bonding. If installing onto concrete/screed a good quality external grade grey tile adhesive can be used. Tiles can either be grouted with a wide joint grout (we offer Rocatex Ultimate & Ardex FL grout), or finished with a brush-in resin compound or alternative jointing method.
Blending Shade and colour variation should be expected in our ‘natural’ look porcelain products, no different to what you would see in real stone or timber. Stronger tone & colour variation can occur between batches, so it is recommended you ensure you order enough for your project in one batch. As per laying real stone/timber a good number of packs should be opened at a time and blended.
