Kalkstone: warm, delicate stone effect for indoor-outdoor use

Reading time: minutes

A consistency extremely rich in graphic details highlights the natural appeal of meticulously designed porcelain stoneware surfaces. Delicate colors and warm finishes gently embrace living spaces and guarantee unbeatable safety in the open air.

Kalkstone, a wide, versatile stone-effect stoneware series, with four soft shades – White, Sand, Natural and Grey – available in a vast array of sizes – 120×120, 60×120, 60×60, 30×60, 30×30, 20×40 and 20×20 cm.

All the beauty of stone is expressed in outdoor spaces where multi-size installation patterns created by combining three sizes that are multiples of each other – 60×60, 30×60 and 30×30 cm – underline the free flow of delicate veining.

The entire product range is manufactured using the 3D Ink digital technology, which combines structure and printing precision. Individual details, variations in tone and alternating glossy and matt effects are carefully balanced on every single piece, giving the Kalkstone collection floor and wall coverings a totally realistic overall look and bestowing depth of texture and three-dimensionality on the ceramic material.

The Kalkstone stone effect is impressively versatile, fitting well into both rustic design schemes and locations in more contemporary taste. Its impressions of softness and comfort are enhanced by decorative mosaicsModulo and Freccia – to inspire ornamental floor and wall features matched with all the plain tiles in the series.

 Kalkstone owes its natural finish to its structured surface with high slip resistance, produced using the StepWise technology

Outstanding technical properties, a soft “feel” and easy cleaning are thus guaranteed for all public or private locations that require excellent anti-slip characteristics, such as bathrooms, commercial premises, balconies, terraces, patios and yards.

Last but not least, a product range suitable for any outdoor context is completed by 60×120 cm slabs with thickness of 20 mm. Ragno Ceramiche offers pavers in this category in its XT20 collections.

XT20 is the system of porcelain stoneware pavers and trims 20 mm thick, perfect for transforming gardens, terraces, patios, pools and public places into attractive locations to be enjoyed in safety. Easy to install, XT20 slabs enable a wide variety of installation modes: simply resting on grass, gravel and sand, glued on screeds and as a raised paving.

What’s more, the Kalkstone stone effect is the perfect backdrop for Ragno’s various coverings, such as the large marble-effect slabs of Incanto, the super-glossy small-size tiles of Glacé, and the floral and geometrical decors of the large Papers, Clayton and Richmond wall tiles, for use as ornamental highlights or across entire walls for a stylish finishing touch to any interior.
