CERAMICAS CALAF, S.A.-tile manufacturer-CALAF, BARCELONA, Spain.

Posted onJanuary 12, 2011

CERAMICAS CALAF S.A.-tile manufacturer-CALAF  BARCELONA  Spain.

Cerámicas Calaf was born out of a tradition of families of potters dating back to the beginning of twentieth century, became a company in 1966 and is now part of one of the most important group in Spain. It has a long history of manufacturing ceramic Products for the building industry, and throughout this period it has constantly reorganised and adapted its manufacturing processes to the latest technologies. It is itself a pioneer in research and applications from its current plant of over 20,000 square metres of new installations and equipment.

The geographical location of CALAF, in the district of Anoia, has very particular characteristics in that its climate is variable and cold in winter, with frequent mists and frosts, while it is hot and dry in summer, although the hights are very pleasant and agreeable. Its geology is also special, the area around the plant being rich in calcareous clay deposits of a reddish colour with a very special plasticity, allowingCERAMICAS CALAF to specialise in the Production of fired clay flooring with pleasant and warm rose-coloured hues.

The entire Production of flooring is mechanically extruded and has a rustic and traditional appearance of high quality. Our specialities are Terracotta and Half-fired flintware, wich are the most suitable for creating warm, welcoming and practical atmospheres. These two specialities are embodied in two of our Product lines, theBARCELONA SERIES (terracotta) and the MONTSERRAT SERIES (half-fired flintware), which are manufactured with a full range of complementary pieces. Both lines are of great interest for floor surfaces in houses, gardens, swimming pools and pedestrianized areas.

Faithful to tradition, and with the desire to continue eveloping new Products,Cerámicas Calaf is pleased to present a new line in the form of our CADI SERIES(“hard” fired terracotta). This is a Product with the finest decorative characteristics of fired clay, but which has been fired to flintware, so that its stain and wear resistance is equal to that of the best flintware.

And like these it is very easy to clean and to treat, thereby solving the problem for those people who cannot spare the time to care for terracotta, but who wish to keep the special qualities of materials which are natural in composition, colour, texture and treatment, and which keep all the warmth and tradition of classic terracotta. Our range of Products is completed by the DECORATION SERIES, with enamelled friezes for staircases and borders for decorating flooring and wall facings.

The whole Product range is in line with current constructional and ecological requirements, and exceeds the European quality standards covered by the UNE set of standards. In the research field, we are working towards trouble-free laying of fired clay floor tiles, attempting to avoid the problems which occur during treatment both in and out of doors.

The result of this research is taking shape in the TERRACOTTA PLUS SYSTEM.

The keen quality/price ratio means our flooring is accessible to all types of works and budgets.
