Indoor dry flooring system

ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana is a radical change in the traditional concept of ceramic floors although it maintains all its qualities while turning a static element into a dynamic and flexible system.
Its installation is extremely simple and versatile, its finishes are of great aesthetic value, it is resistant to both distributed and concentrated loads and proves to be the ideal solution for floors installed in exhibition spaces, shows,trade fair stands, showrooms, temporary shops, historical buildings and museum installations (to protect ancient and precious surfaces) and any other environment in the tertiary, commercial and residential sectors.

The ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana dry laying system, can be laid down in just a few seconds and walked over and used straightaway.

With no glue or expensive primers, a steady surface may be created and laid out in countless shapes and patterns, with a simple male/female anchoring system.

Not only each piece can be quickly laid down, but it can also be as quickly removed and reused somewhere else or for something else, thus optimising your investment, its eco-friendliness, the recycling chain and the sustainability process. Repairs, extensions and refits can be completed in just a few gestures.

Without any dust or dirt!

Thanks to ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana, Casalgrande Padana provides a technically exhaustive and aesthetically sophisticated solution to meet the most complex needs of builders and designers. Individual panels are directly laid on the concrete screed or pre-existing floor.
The connection between elements is ensured by a vertical axis tongue and groove perimeter joint system ensuring stability and preventing horizontal movements due to tangent loads on the module. Each element is connected and forms an immediately treadable floor leading to the aesthetic renovation of the environment, eliminating long traditional installation operations and ensuring a clean building site.

Each ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana element is composed of a 30x60, 60x60, 60x120 and 90x90 cm porcelain stoneware slab selected from the very broad Casalgrande Padana product range connected to a support and a special perimeter edge.
The load-bearing feature is a very strong material. 

The final result is a finished floor with 3 mm standard joints, the colour of which may be chosen as you like, depending on the ceramic surface.

Combined with extraordinary features, such pieces may be used to create a smart floor.
By integrating detectors and control units, you can for example measure traffic in shopping centres, adjust lighting and air conditioning, thus paving the way to innovative opportunities in this area.
In addition, all wiring and powering is simply and elegantly designed, using a variety of cable trays and switch boxes that can be installed in many different ways.

One of the strengths of ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana is that it is waterproof. The joint system and an effective waterproof gasket prevent liquids from leaking through the bedding, protect the layers underneath and ensure maximum freedom in terms of cleaning, from traditional hand cleaning to the use of professional equipment.

A quickly accessible and treadable floor is certainly important, especially in the commercial sector, but ensuring load resistance is equally important. ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana was conceived and developed to meet operation needs also in environments subject to great concentrated and tangent loads, such as motor vehicle showrooms, commercial spaces, offices with many visitors.

Extensive laboratory tests have confirmed its resistance to concentrated loads.

Safety and the quality of materials have always been fundamental prerequisites upon which the production of Casalgrande Padana is based. In terms of fireproof standards, the new floating system combines the fireproof qualities of both porcelain stoneware and the support material, with Bfl-s1, EN 13501-1 fire reaction classes.
Consequently, ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana panels may be used in public venues subject to specific fireproof requirements. 

Its fibre-reinforced gypsum backer board makes the AR30 system ideal in the presence of a low-temperature and high-efficiency underfloor heating system. That’s because fibre-reinforced gypsum is a heat conductor that accumulates and radiates heat efficiently throughout the rooms.

Sound insulation is a fundamental prerequisite to ensure comfort and wellbeing in all buildings for residential, working or public purposes (hotels, hospitals, homes for the elderly) determined by specific performance regulations.

The ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana system, thanks to the soundproof properties of its support, contributes remarkably to the maximisation of noise dampening compared to traditional floors.


ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana does not limit the creativity of architects and designers in any way.
The surface finish of modules may be implemented by selecting one of the numerous 30x6060x6060x120 and 90x90 cm slabs of the GranitogresPietre Native and Granitoker lines and any of the surfaces included in the very broad range supplied by Casalgrande Padana.

ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana in unglazed porcelain stoneware, is the ideal choice for residential architecture, office and shop floors and the refurbishing of pre-existing buildings. The broad range of colours supplied by this line is complemented by the following sophisticated slab surface: naturalpolishedsatin and structured.

ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana  in unglazed porcelain stoneware, provides a faithful replica of the colours and surface finishes of natural stones but still ensures the easy maintenance and high mechanical and chemical standards characterizing all products by Casalgrande Padana.

The slabs  are the ideal solution for residential buildings but are also suitable for commercial buildings and restoration works; it is the ideal solution for floors in new buildingsand restoration works. 

The system is quick and easy to install. Refer to the dedicated section in the catalogue if you have any doubts.

If the need emerges for eliminating level differences between the existing installation surface and the new ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana, proposes ad-hoc aluminium coupling ramps to be inserted along the edges of the previously installed panels. To ensure the perfect connection between the joints and the ArsRatio Casalgrande Padana panels, all aluminium ramps share the same tongue and groove connection system characterizing floating panels.

The aluminium ramps come with ad hoc shaped top surface with non-slip protruding bars, whereas the section differs according to the edge of the panel to be connec.
