blackstock + the environment
Blackstock tiles may be installed using our innovative magnetic system or traditional adhesive method. Each has its own strengths and is recommended for particular applications.
Magnetic for flexibility
With magnetic application, your installation becomes:
Portable—when you move, simply lift your magnetic-backed tiles and move them with you
Reconfigurable—change your look by re-laying tile on a 45° or according to a stack pattern or brick pattern
Updatable—Update your look by adding new accent tiles
Repairable—make quick, easy, cost-effective repairs by lifting and replacing damaged tiles only
Accessible—in raised-floor office environments, gain easy access to under-floor cabling by removing tiles covering access panels
Maintainable—each tile can be individually removed, massaged, cleaned and replaced without disturbing the surrounding tiles
With the exception of Silkroad WALL TILES, all Blackstock tiles may be installed using our magnetic system. Our magnetic application must be used to install Tapestry.
Adhesive for strength
With adhesive application, your installation gains strength (but loses portability). With the exception of Tapestry, all Blackstock tiles may be installed using latex adhesive. Latex adhesive must be used to install Silkroad wall tiles.
