Description

Created to emulate the look of contemporary stone, Merit by American Olean opens doors to new design opportunities. Featuring StepWise™, a revolutionary technology providing superior slip resistance, Merit is perfect for open-concept environments where indoor living extends outdoors. Beautifully realistic veining and variation is available in four neutral shades with large format sizing and coordinating mosaics. Suitable for both residential and commercial settings, Merit offers design sophistication both inside and out.
 

NOTES:

  • Since there are variations in all fired ceramic and natural products, tile and trim supplied for your particular installation may not match samples. Final confirmation should be made from actual tiles and trim prior to installation. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.
  • Not for use on ramps. Water, oil, grease, improper drainage and certain footwear can create slippery conditions. Floor applications expected to be exposed to these conditions require extra caution in product selection.
  • Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation.
