Tiles for Eden on the Bay

Tile Africa Contracts supplied the Famous Black porcelain tiles for Eden on the Bay in Blouberg, near Cape Town. Tile Africa Contracts recently supplied tiles to Eden on the Bay, an upmarket residential / mixed use development on the beachfront at Blouberg’s Big Bay, near Cape Town.

The development includes residential apartments, a shopping centre and restaurants and, according to the developers, Asrin Property Developers and Mvelaprop, is intended to blend contemporary living with small-town comfort, charm and the natural splendour of its location.

Tile Africa Contracts supplied full-bodied 300 by 300mm black porcelain tiles with a slate appearance – called Famous Black – for the balconies and walkways of the apartment complex. The tiles were laid over an area totalling 5 000m².

Soon after laying, the black tiles showed the dirt, particularly due to construction dust and the sea wind blowing sand around the site. Nicholas Els, regional sales consultant for Tile Africa Contracts says, “We suggested the expert help of Tile & Floor Care and the company assisted with professional cleaning of the tiles.”

For Cappello restaurant at Eden on the Bay, Tile Africa Contracts supplied 100m² of large-format 600 by 600mm Oasis Nova glazed porcelain tiles, in a light natural colour with earthy tones. The tiles were installed by All Work PC Catering.

With a network of representation through 37 Tile Africa retail branches around the country and the backing of sister companies – Johnson Tiles and TAL Adhesives – Tile Africa Contracts can supply specialist products for commercial and industrial applications nationally. The company also offers on-site technical advice and an aftercare service. The materials it supplies and the methods of installation used are in line with local and international standards, so architects, contractors and specifiers are assured of a valuable service.
