Description

With a nod to minimalist simplicity, Theoretical by American Olean is inspired by the modern, industrial look of cement. Reimagined with subtle graphic variation for added richness and depth, its versatility makes it perfect for commercial or urban residential applications. Available in 10 neutral hues to complement a range of color palettes and patterns, Theoretical is the perfect foundation for endless design options.
 

NOTES:

  • Since there is shade variation in all fired ceramic 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.
  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the surface. Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation.
  • 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.
