Description

Method™ by American Olean® pays homage to the design process with colors, sizes and textures that flow seamlessly from interior to exterior spaces. A neutral, yet rich color palette provides the backdrop for fluid movement and graceful visual detail. The line includes six design-inspired colors: Structure Cream, Process Beige, Strategic Brown, Taupe Technique, Khaki Approach, and System Sable. Three textures—unpolished, polished, and textured—are offered in popular sizes with TruEdge™ rectified edges. Trim offerings include a cove base, bullnose and cove corner.

Dynamic C.O.F. (Wet) value as measured by the DCOF AcuTestTM helps to assess a products suitability for a commercial environment. Read information on D.C.O.F.

Manufacturers Warning:

  • These tiles have a dynamic coefficient of friction less than 0.42 as measured by the DCOF AcutestTM method. Tiles with DCOF Acutest values less than .42 are not recommended for use in areas with wet or slippery conditions. If such tiles are used as a walking surface where water, ice, oil, grease and/or other substances are present, such a condition could cause a reduction in foot traction and become unexpectedly slippery resulting in a fall and personal injury. See ANSI standard A137.1 section 6.2.2.1.10, available at www.tcnatile.com/section6.2.2.1.10.html.
  • Water, oil, grease, etc. create slippery conditions. Floor applicatons with exposure to these conditions require extra caution in product selection. Not for use on ramps.
  • For addtional information, refer to Factors to Consider.
  • Since there is a shade variation on all natural products, the tile and trim supplied for your particular installation may not match these samples. Final selection should be made from actual tiles and trim and not from tile and trim samples or color reproductions. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.
