The answer to the needs of designers and architects was the creation of our gres tiles meticulously imitating wood, and thanks to which, we can now finish a full step with the use of just one element.   V-shape treads were created using special technology, and are now included in our wall and floor tile portfolio, giving us the possibility to create a coherent and harmonious design when dealing with, for instance, a two-level living room, hall or a stylish terrace.  During the tile creation process, the following were extremely important to us: modern, ecological design, functionality and versatility.  Cerrad is one of only two manufacturers in the world that uses this technology.
