New vs Old

Impressions are the newer version of fine fissured tiles brought to us by USG Boral. As seen below, the fissures are smaller than the older Radar tile that most may be familiar with being common in government and commercial office buildings.  Both tiles are similarly priced however when offered the choice, nearly all clients opt for the Impressions.

Impressions are available in both square edge and rebated variations, as seen below. One thing worth noting on a rebated tile however is that to keep a consistant look around cut edged, the edges need to be rebated. Rebated edges need to be painted to keep a consistent look, which in turn  greatly increases the labour costs of having tiles installed.
