Planks: perfect for all tastes
The warm colours and soft texture of Planks strike a harmonious balance with both classic and contemporary spaces and work well with any style of furniture, creating a sophisticated, contemporary aesthetic that brings elegance.

The Planks wood-effect porcelain stoneware collection can be laid in a variety of ways, based on the chosen furnishing style and personal taste. You can opt for an interlocking system with planks of various dimensions, or - for more exotic styles - choose to use lots of different colours in the same space.

Beauty and resistance
Of all our flooring and covering products, our wood-effect porcelain stoneware products are one among the most successful because they combine the aesthetic characteristics of wood planks (knots, marks and warm colouration) with the technical attributes and strength typical of porcelain stoneware.

Porcelain stoneware can be defined as a compact, non-porous, coloured ceramic product. It is obtained by pressing a mixture of lean clay with a low resistance to fire and feldspar, which is then fired at a very high temperature (1200-1400 °C) until it becomes non-porous and impermeable, which are the properties that make the finished tiles completely waterproof, with elevated mechanical characteristics.

The term stoneware comes from the French word gres, which indicates that the ceramic mixture that makes up the tile is extremely compact, resulting in exceptional strength.
Meanwhile, the word porcelain underlines the sophisticated elegance of the tiles and derives from the use of kaolin, a white clay that is also used to produce porcelain.

Casalgrande Padana’s porcelain stoneware has a host of impressive properties, in that it’s resistant to impacts and abrasions and impermeable, while its Bios Antibacterial technology means no mould or bacteria can form on the surface. It’s also hygienic, easy to lay and clean and doesn’t require maintenance, as well as being resistant to stains and chemical agents. It’s a safe, environmentally friendly materials, can be recycled, is fire resistant and - in the event of a fire - doesn’t give off any substances that are harmful to human beings or the environment.
