i4F® collaborates with Akgün Group-Duratiles

i4F®, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, recently announced that it has joined forces with the Akgün Group-Duratiles to bring a “clickable” floating floor installation system to the world of ceramics. The company also announced Akgün as the world’s first licensee of its i4F Ceramic Click technology. i4F’s patented system combines the easy installation of a floating, modular floor with the beauty and durability of ceramic tiles. Akgün is launching its new i4F Ceramic Click-enabled modular floor tile (branded DuraClick), on its booth (1045) at Coverings 2024, taking place April 22 to 25 in Atlanta, USA.

i4F Ceramic Click represents an innovative system where ceramic tiles, equipped with an i4F drop-lock mechanism, are mounted on a board. This allows the tiles to be connected seamlessly using ultra-fine grouts (1 mm). The drop-lock technology from i4F facilitates a quick and simple click-together installation, making it accessible for both professionals and DIY enthusiasts. Additionally, the system is well-suited for commercial projects due to the minimal downtime involved.

Formed in 1925, the Akgün Group-Duratiles is one of the world’s most established producers of ceramics. It employs five thousand people across seventeen manufacturing facilities, exporting products to 54 countries worldwide.

Murat Sencok, Akgün Group-Duratiles’ General Coordinator, says, “Our collaboration with i4F provides us with the perfect launch pad for our new DuraClick tiles. For years, the market has been asking for the beauty of real ceramics with the flexibility of floating floors. Porcelain floors remain in high demand with their water – as well as scratch and stress – resistance. The trend for hygienic aesthetics is met with very thin grouts enabling easy cleaning and maintenance.”

The collaboration between i4F and Akgün combined i4F’s expertise in installation technology with Akgün’s extensive experience in ceramic tile production. i4F’s Ceramic Click technology was rigorously evaluated on Akgün’s Duratiles, focusing on production efficiency, locking strength, water resistance, and aesthetic quality. This synergy of elements has resulted in the development of a floating ceramic flooring solution that is quicker and simpler to install, as well as easier to remove and replace.
