Low thickness floors and coverings
Renovating the living spaces such as apartments or offices and, more simply, changing the look of the domestic space are quite simple and quick procedures thanks to the use of low thickness coverings. This kind of coverings, by now largely widespread especially in the field of refurbishments, has different advantages: indeed, thanks to the reduced thickness that goes from 3 to 5 mm, these extremely thin tiles can be directly applied on preexisting floors (in ceramic, stone or marble) without removing them, thus decreasing labor times and costs. Moreover, with these coverings, windows and doors can be kept without proceeding to cut them or even to replace them. In addition to avoiding the inconvenience caused by the total removal of the floor, this kind of tiles are easy to transport thanks to the halved weight and are simple to work and cut.
Low thickness floors and coverings: the Profilpas line of profiles for low thicknesses
Profilpas has created a full range of profiles for low thicknesses: decorative listellos, rounded or square external corners profiles, separation and movement joints, perimetral edge profiles and stair nosing profiles especially recommended for the laying of mosaics, stoneware, resin and materials such as Kerlite®, the laminate stoneware with a thickness of just 3 mm produced by Cotto d’Este.
Prolist is a line of decorative listellos for coverings of 3 and 4 mm thickness. Available in aluminium or stainless steel and in different finishes, these listellos can be used in different fields, from public to private ones, and can be applied together with Protrim, Proangle and Proangle Q that we will explain in detail herebelow.
Protrim is a line of rounded shape profiles for the protection of external corners of tile coverings with thickness from 3 to 4,5 mm. The versions in silver anodised aluminium and stainless steel are perfect for the protection of stairs. Moreover, in the stainless steel models, special accessories such as external and internal corners are available.
Similarly, Proangle and Proangle Q, the last one characterized by a square shape, are two lines of profiles for the finish and the decoration during the laying of coverings with thickness from 3 to 4,5 mm. Both of them are suitable for the protection of external corners of tile coverings, thus eliminating the unsightly and fragile cut at 45° of tiles.
Proround M and Proint are two lines of profiles for the hygienic maintenance of the connection between low thickness floors and coverings (from 3 to 4,5 mm). The particular shape of Proint facilitates the junction between the floor and the covering, guaranteeing the expansion gap between the two surfaces.
Prostep and Protect are two lines of stair nosing profiles for low thickness coverings (from 3,5 to 5 mm): the first one, in natural aluminium, is characterized by a knurled surface that makes it non-slip and it is suitable for private and public places that are subject to intense traffic; the second ones are suitable for both the protection and the finishing of stairs.
Projoint DIL is a line of expansion joints that are essential for the laying of tiles of large sizes and with low thickness (from 3 to 5 mm). Available in aluminium, stainless steel and PVC, these profiles are important to diminish and/or absorb the expansion and contraction movements of floors. Projoint T is a line of joints for the separation of floors of same height that is suitable to cover possible cutting imperfections or to separate two different materials.
In the end, Pronivel is a line of profiles for floors of different height with thickness from 4,5 to 5 mm that have been specifically designed to provide a stepless gradient transition.
