A New World for Slab Countertops

Just when you think large-format porcelain tile couldn’t get any bigger, porcelain slabs appear. Introducing Panoramic Porcelain Surfaces™ - huge porcelain tile that can go nearly anywhere.

Think of everything you know about porcelain floor tiles. Now imagine having all those benefits on the countertop, the wall, or fireplace with very few joints and lots less grout—that’s Panoramic.

Roy Viana, director of Natural Stone and Slab at Daltile said it like this, “we all know what a great performer porcelain is; just translate all those capabilities to a slab and you’ll understand the value of these large porcelain surfaces.”
