Ceramic parquet combines the look and feel of wood with the strength and durability of ceramic.
Imbued with the lifelike features of natural wood, such as grain and texture, ceramic parquet is wonderfully realistic and offers many aesthetic and practical design solutions. And here’s more about it.
Par-Ker by Porcelanosa
Par-Ker is the original Porcelanosa ceramic parquet; truly innovative, it has been at the forefront of the genre for the past thirty years. Employing highly developed ceramic technology, Par-Ker provides flooring and cladding solutions for a great many indoor and outdoor environments. Inspired by the noble qualities of wood, Porcelanosa’s Par-Ker collection is distinctive, versatile and true to life, its appearance both detailed and naturalistic.
The decorative features of the Par-Ker collection are aesthetically pleasing and technically brilliant. Par-Ker ceramic parquet is inalterable, and very resistant to everyday wear and tear. Porcelanosa is proud of the fact that the quality of its Par-Ker ceramic parquet will endure for many years.
Technical properties of Par-ker
In keeping with Porcelanosa’s commitment to quality, Par-Ker ceramic parquet has many notable features. They include: durability, inalterability, ease of cleaning, fire resistance, resistance to slipping, anti-humidity and a commitment to ecology.
Great durability is a hallmark of the Porcelanosa Grupo and Par-ker reflects Porcelanosa’s history of pioneering ceramic production. A long-life material, Par-Ker bears up against the erosion caused by daily use. Its inalterability safeguards Par-Ker’s smart appearance and it requires no excessive maintenance after installation.
The material make-up of Par-Ker ensures a fire resistant standard; as such, Par-Ker ceramic parquet is suited to residential, hospitality and commercial settings. With its durability, Par-Ker is also an ideal surface solution for areas with a lot of pedestrian traffic, especially those requiring a non-slip finish. Nanotechnology is applied in the production of Par-Ker and thus Porcelanosa is able to make flooring with a clever non-slip quality.
Humidity is typically an issue when using real wood flooring and cladding in bathrooms, kitchens and poolside areas. With its anti-humidity property and a low porosity, Par-Ker can be used with confidence and ease in such spaces. As a result, bathrooms, kitchens, poolsides and more, can benefit from the character and beauty of an elegant wood-like finish. Par-Ker is also suitable for radiant heating, a perfect fuss-free heating solution for cold winter months.
Par-Ker ceramic parquet is eco-friendly and produced as part of Porcelanosa’s Ecoproject. This environmentally aware project considers the absolute importance of air, energy, water, recycling and nature/ecology, in the manufacturing processes of Par-Ker.
It may be a cliché, but the old adage ‘life is made for living’ is a heartfelt motto. In living, we should surround ourselves with the things that we love, creating spaces where we feel a sense of joy and comfort. #MyParkerLife is a commitment made by Porcelanosa over the past thirty years. In creating Par-Ker, Porcelanosa developed a technologically advanced ceramic parquet, made for those projects pursuing distinctive, aesthetic ideals, yet unaltered by real life.
The #MyParkerLife manifesto describes a number of key principles, including: defending good design—through innovation, technology, aesthetics and functionality—and so revolutionising the daily life of the user; braving the unpredictable, embracing life and change as it happens; making life easier, with design that promotes a sense tranquility and balance; focusing on the essentials, minimising the use of resources and protecting the environment.
In essence, Par-Ker is about easy living.
