Crossville Inc. has announced the launch of Retro Active 2.0. This line offers designers solutions to create customized looks for commercial projects.
According to Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville vice president of marketing, Retro Active 2.0 is an evolution of the Retro Active line that has been a favorite in the catalog for years.
Waldrep shares that the product development team envisioned the Retro Active 2.0 collection as an answer to specifiers’ needs for go-anywhere surfacing solutions. By anticipating designers’ needs now and into the future, the team opted to create this collection with through-body color in a spectrum of contrasting hues, as well as rectilinear size options to answer project challenges.
The colors in the collection, offered in unpolished or polished finishes, are Antico Taupe; Seal Taupe; Featherstone; Empress White; Snow Blind; Roasted Chestnut; Leaden; Mecurial; Phantom; Armor; Gulf Breeze; Racing Green and Royal Navy. In addition, Retro Active 2.0 Pattern tiles, also offered in the 13 colors in a textured finish, work in tandem with the non-pattern tiles or on their own to give dimension to designs. From use in wainscoting, incorporated as accent or embellishment, or applied to add touches of texture, Retro Active Pattern tiles invite designers to new looks for walls and floors.
This collection is available in seven field tile sizes: 3-inches by 12-inches; 4-inches by 12-inches; 4-inches by 24-inches; 6-inches by 12-inches; 6-inches by 24-inches; 12-inches by 12-inches; and 12-inches by 24-inches. To create fully finished looks, the 2-inches by 4-inches mosaic, cove base with inside and outside corners, and bullnose are offered in each color, as well.
As with all products produced at its Tennessee manufacturing facilities, Retro Active 2.0 is made in the U.S., contains a minimum of 4 percent pre-consumer recycled content, and is Green Squared certified. Retro Active 2.0 is recommended for interior floors, walls, and countertops, as well as exterior walls, in commercial and residential settings.
