SlimRect is the perfect ally of contract spaces

SlimRect  has unique features that captivate the contract sector. This rectified white porous wall tile lowers the cost of any project due to its thin thickness, 6mm. The minimum thickness of SlimRect reduces the transport and placement costs of the ceramic pieces.

Benefits SlimRect tiles for the Contract channel


Strength and durability

SlimRect walls tiles represent the evolution of ceramics. This extra-fine ceramic is a state-of-the-art solution that, despite its thin thickness, retains the essential qualities of the material: durability, strength and functionality. In addition, it is a flame retardant and stable material.



Its easy maintenance makes it a practical and comfortable material for all types of businesses and buildings in the contract sector.



One of the great advantages of thin-thickness rectified white porous walls tiles from SlimRect is that it allows over-tiling. The fact of being able to keep the materials already installed on the surfaces to be coated means a great saving of time and money in any project of the contract channel.



The thin thickness of SlimRect in its choice of large formats, 40x120mm, provides the added advantage of projecting continuous spaces and integrating all types of rooms. In addition, large-format extra-thin ceramic tiles are also more hygienic, since it eliminates the number of joints between tiles in the same space. 



The thin thickness of SlimRect ceramic pieces make it a highly sustainable material. 

Finally, it should also be noted that its fine format allows many more pieces to be transported at the same time. All this makes SlimRect a sustainable and environmentally friendly product.

Both SlimRect and the rest of Azulev Grupo tiles are produced respecting the highest standards of sustainability and respect for the environment .



SlimRect is the most ecological ceramic. Ceramics, in general, is one of the most ecological materials we have, because it is created from natural raw materials whose use does not harm the environment. The ceramic does not contain plastic, it is recyclable and with its use we avoid cutting down trees.

Our extra-fine ceramic wall tile responds to the continuous search of our firm for the preservation of the environment; Its reduced thickness, 6mm, enhances the sustainability of each piece.  

Cost savings

The thin thickness of the tiles to cover SlimRect walls reduces the cost of transport and placement of the pieces. By not having to debris, the execution time of the work is reduced and, therefore, the costs of any project are reduced.The over-tiling is an important advantage for any reform or rehabilitation project of all types of homes or commercial premises . 



The thin thickness of SlimRect also makes it easier to handle the pieces, whatever their format, since they weigh less. It is easier to load the extra-fine ceramic to transport it, as well as transfer it to the exact place in which it is to be placed since they are lighter pieces and, therefore, easier to handle and move. 



The method of laying SlimRect tiles is exactly the same as that usually done in any other type of porcelain tile. Therefore, it is not necessary to invest time in learning a new way of laying tiles or making any expense on machinery or special materials for laying.

 The same cutting procedure is performed as the one normally used to split ceramic pieces of standard thickness. Also, the thin thickness is not a problem if you need to drill the piece. You can do it with a normal drill and drill bits of any diameter.

As with standard thickness walls tiles, the fixing of extra-fine ceramic to the wall will be carried out by placing the glue cement with the double gluing technique. It is inadvisable to apply glue cement using "sticks" or "pallet tip". Also, the type of glue will also be the same as that usually used in normal thickness tiles: Cement adhesive C1 to place the SlimRect on a vertical porous wall and cementitious adhesive C2 on non-porous wall. 


Given the exclusive features of SlimRect, it is understandable that it seduces all intermediaries in the contract channel. Architects, builders, decorators, interior designers, distributors, tile shops, renovation companies and wholesalers in the sector take advantage of this state-of-the-art material for the construction of all types of spaces: public or private buildings, commercial areas, hotels, restaurants , shops, stores, airports ...
