G3NIUS BY GRESMALT - An innovative ceramic material that makes sustainable floor and wall coverings available to all consumers

In building, ceramics are popular for floor and wall coverings, and porcelain stoneware is the best performing material in terms of aesthetics, technology and sanitation. The G3NIUS FLORA collection is a porcelain stoneware designed with a reduced thickness (7.4mm) compared to the market average (9mm). The 7.4mm thickness grants many tangible benefits to the end consumer: easy to handle thanks to the lightweight; easy to cut and perforate; quicker and more economical installation; responsible production thanks to a reduced use of natural and energetic resources; reduced environmental impact and carbon footprint; logistic advantage for the distributor, with the possibility of loading 22% more sqm on the same vehicle. To ensure transparency, an accredited third-party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is available.
