- It is highly recommended to order a sample. Go to the sample section of this website and add the sample(s) of your choice to your cart. Order multiple samples of the same product if you want to get a good idea of the seam between stones and the shade variation.
- When measuring your project and ordering the product quantity make sure you order at least 10% extra for cuts, trimming, damaged pieces, and future repairs
- The installation is similar to the installation of wall tiles. It is recommended to read our how to install page
V1 - Uniform Appearance - Differences among pieces from the same production run are minimal
V2 - Slight Variation - Clearly distinguishable differences in texture and/or pattern within similar colors
V3 - Moderate Variation - While the colors present on a single piece of tile will be indicative of the colors to be expected on the other tiles, the amount of colors on each piece may vary significantly. For example 'that little bit of color' on one piece of tile may be the primary color on the next pieces.
V4 - Substantial Variation - Random color differences from tile to tile, so that one tile may have totally different colors from that of other tiles. Thus the final installation will be unique.
PEI is a measurement of the “abrasion resistance” of a panel, meaning how much “rubbing” does it take to physically impact the look of the panel. The test is scored on a scale and each value represents a durability to withstand increasingly more demanding traffic.
PEI 1, Very Light Traffic - These stones can only be used on indoor wall applications with very light residential traffic or as a feature wall decor. These panels are not recommended for any area that will have any constant or heavy traffic.
PEI 2, Light Traffic - These stones can be used on all indoor wall applications with light residential traffic. These stones should not be used in areas such as kitchens, entry ways, stairs or bathrooms.
PEI 3, Moderate Traffic - These stones can be used on all indoor wall applications. This stone should not be used in commercial applications.
PEI 4, Moderate to Heavy Traffic - These stones can be used on all indoor wall applications, and all light commercial applications, such as restaurants and lobbies. This stone should not be used in heavy commercial applications.
