What we do
Saxa Gres produces porcelain tiles (2 cm) and extra-thick tiles (3 cm), for every typology of outdoor and indoor location. Furthermore, in 2018 Saxa Gres launched the Grestone line, “the new ceramic stone”, that includes up to 30% of inert materials which come from urban waste, and it is realised in different types of thickness from 5 cm to 6,5 cm, and is able to respond to high stresses which were up until now unimaginable for ceramic surfaces. A new generation of products, such as a cobblestone made of porcelain, that pave the way for the use of ceramic surfaces in different contexts of urban flooring and street design.
How we do
Saxa Gres states the principle of circularity in all of its activities. Circular is the path that brought to the reopening of some historic plants, in an area which had suffered from an economic crisis, achieving the rehiring of more than 500 people. And circular are the production methods of the materials, made with a mix of ashes and clays coming from a local incinerator and a local quarry, which guarantee the Ecolabel certification of our products with the strongest Green element.
GRESTONE Urban Thickness
The Grestone line offers porcelain tiles in original and exceptional thicknesses ranging from 5 cm to 6,5 cm, able to respond to stresses up until now unimaginable for the ceramic surfaces. A new generation of products that pave the way for the use of porcelain in the different contexts of street flooring and street furniture, replacing stones and other natural materials that are difficult to obtain due to the high cost and the growing scarcity which in some countries has led to an absolute extraction ban in order to protect the environment.
GEESTONE Size and Colours
5 cm thick tiles are available in sizes 20×40, 40×60 and 60X60 to assure a wide and architectural versatility of design. 6.5 cm thick tiles are available in cobblestone sizes 10×10, 10×20 and 20×20, suitable for the realisation of various typologies of flooring and street furniture subject to high stresses. Saxa Gres is able to realise every size and thickness between 2cm and 7cm, in order to fulfil customers’ needs. Furthermore, Saxa Gres will produce all the elements of street furniture, from the edge of sidewalks to every component that is made of stone or cement, thanks to the technology of pressing, extrusion and ceramic pouring, also available tailor-made.
SAXA Outdoor Thickness
For all types of outdoor location, Saxa Gres produces porcelain tiles with a 2 cm and 3 cm thickness, characterised by an exceptional resistance which also makes them the ideal solution for driveway space. The tiles can be laid in different modalities: using the traditional screed, on pedestals or dry on sand, gravel and grass.
2 cm thick tiles, true two centimetres, are available in square sizes 60×60, 90×90 and 80×80, and in rectangular sizes 60×120 – 40×120 – 40×80 and 80×180. 3 cm thick tiles, true three centimetres, are available in square sizes 60×60 – 90×90 and in rectangular size 40×80. The variety of choice assures versatility and highly customisable design, making it possible to realise several laying patterns in response to the most varied architectural needs.
Our ceramic surfaces are inspired by the most fascinating and current material grandeur and can be produced in a wide and articulated range of colours. With a view to meeting any kind of stylistic and design needs and maximising customisation, we also offer a bespoke reproduction of graphics, surfaces, mixes, thickness and colours.
Where we are
Saxa Gres is operational right now in Anagni, Frosinone and soon will expand its own manufacturing also in Roccasecca, still in Frosinone, and in GualdoTadino, Perugia: three big manufacturing plants prior to the birth of the group, which interrupted or drastically decreased their own business because of the economic crisis. At the end of some important project of reconversion, the plants work now to the best of their abilities, making Saxa Gres the biggest organization producing tiles and other ceramic surfaces in the Center and in the south of Italy, and in wider terms, outside of the district of Sassuolo.
Saxa Gres is a business group which is headquartered in Anagni, Frosinone, established in 2015 to introduce the principles of the circular economy in the industry of ceramic tiles. The purpose is to activate virtuous inner workings which avoid as much as possible the use, or worse the wastefulness, of materials and other resources. Saxa Gres applies these principles reusing materials which come from urban waste otherwise destined to the dumps; the same principles are applied to the industrialoccupational sector by focusing the production between three already existing establishments, safeguarding in this way hundreds of jobs.
