As we are all well under way in the second quarter of 2017, Spectile are sure it has been an equally busy month for everyone. On the upside, our monthly newsletter has arrived with a simple round up of what’s been happening here at Spectile.
As well as our Twitter and Facebook pages, don’t forget that we also have Instagram and Pinterest accounts too. This is where we share photographs, material images and links to inspire your designs. Whether you are working on commercial, hospitality and leisure developments, it is all there for your benefit!
Sometimes imagination is not enough to be able to create genius designs, however visualising allows you to see what colours and textures work alongside each other in different settings. Here at Spectile we like to encourage those who dare to be different by exposing photography of high quality products in as many quirky ways as possible. Just like this newly revealed tiling range – Trace.

Hart Leisure Centre – Edenbrook
This month, the new Hart Leisure Centre opened its doors to the community after two years of planning, designing and building. Proud to be involved, Spectile worked alongside the Architects and Contractors to develop a specification for many different types of wall and floor tiling within the centre’s wet and dry areas.

With 50 colours available and in a range of different sizes the Chroma Range is perfect to be used in a range of different environments. Spectile’s AB Chroma Range has the added benefit of the amazing HT (Hydrophilic Tile) coating contributing to a healthy living environment.
- HT impedes the growth of fungus, bacteria and other micro-organisms
- HT facilitates cleaning of the surface
- HT decomposes pollutants and odours in indoor areas
How the HT Coating works:
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is fired insolubly and permanently into the ceramic surface at high temperatures. As a permanent catalyst, it facilitates a life-long reaction between light (photocatalysis), oxygen and humidity. This gives rise to activated oxygen and a hydrophilic, water-friendly ceramic surface. The activated oxygen undertakes three decisive functions:
1. It breaks down micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungus and germs directly at the ceramic surface and hinders growth. As such, HT sets new standards wherever cleanliness and hygiene are paramount.
2. Water does not form droplets which ineffectively pearl off or dry leaving unattractive marks but rather a wafer-thin film is formed. This water film ensures that even the tiniest particles of dirt and stubborn residue such as grease which is difficult to remove under normal conditions are thoroughly infiltrated, detaching them from the surface and enabling them to be simply wiped off. This saves time and cleaning agents as well as representing a bonus for the client and most importantly the environment.
3. Disagreeable odours and pollutants such as formaldehyde or nitric oxides are decomposed giving rise to significantly improved indoor air. This is not only particularly convenient in sanitary facilities or kitchen areas – it also makes for more pleasant working conditions throughout all buildings.
