All About ‘Sophia 12x24’

This elegant porcelain tile collection is named for the Hagia Sophia—a magnificent museum, originally a Byzantine cathedral, built from a glorious assortment of marble and other stone. Celebrating genius both manmade and natural, Sophia captures the beauty of classic, vein-cut travertine. The collection uses Clarity Digital Imaging design technology to create the much-loved travertine look in a 12”x24” format, which gives the rich veining and warm colorations the attention they deserve. Taking nature’s genius to a new level, the Sophia series comes in four handsome designer colors: Bella, Alfredo, Toscana, and Dorado. And to complement the stunning large-format tiles, the collection offers 12”x24” sheet-mounted mosaic strips and 2”x2"x12” mosaic sheets. The look of Roman travertine was never more beautifully replicated—an exquisite presentation for well-bred rooms.

Glaze Hardness
Glaze Hardness
The relative hardness of glazed tile is an important issue that should be addressed when selecting a tile. The test is performed by scratching the surface of the tile with different minerals and subjectively assigning a Method of Hardness "MOH's" number to the glaze. The softest mineral used is talc (a #1 rating if no scratch), the hardest is a diamond (a #10 rating if no scratch). Other minerals of varying hardness that provide MOH's values of five or greater are suitable for most residential floor applications while a value of seven or greater is normally recommended for commercial applications. Both abrasion resistance and glaze hardness should be addressed when considering using glazed tiles as floor products.

Shade & Texture Variation
Shade & Texture Variation

Variations in size, color, texture, and pattern are to expected in ceramic flooring. In fact, they should be enjoyed. These variations are part of what makes ceramic tile such a unique and beautiful choice for your home.

Each Shaw Ceramic flooring product is labeled for shade and color variation with one of the following ratings:

  • Low – Consistent shade and texture
  • Moderate – Moderate shade and texture variation
  • High – High shade and texture variation
  • Random – Very high shade and texture variation

For a neat, contemporary-looking tile floor, choose a tile with a low shade and texture rating. A tile with a high or random shade and texture rating will achieve a more casual, rustic effect.
