Tile Africa Contracts’ portfolio attests to the wide range of services and specifications this division extends to architects, contractors, specifiers and designers. Our national distribution network through our Tile Africa stores enables us to supply products in all nine provinces, from modern and sophisticated designs to simple and clean layouts. We supply tiles for very specific sites, from highly technical products, such as flooring for breweries, food manufacturing plants and hospitals, to aesthetically pleasing tiles for shopping centres, corporate office parks, swimming pools and residential developments. No specification is out of bounds.
Upmarket estates, like the Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate in Gauteng, have many architect designed private homes. Aesthetically-appealing porcelain tiles have become increasingly popular thanks to Nano-technology. The application of Nano particles result in porcelain tiles with enhanced lustre, colour and durability. They create a seamless flow from living rooms to open-plan areas, and rooms appear larger due to the light reflecting off the tile’s surface.
Tile Africa Contracts has a range of greener products to offer eco-conscious consumers. Water-saving plumbing accessories, dual flush toilets, water-efficient taps and shower heads are the latest offerings.
Our experienced team plans tile design layouts with you and has access to a wide variety of products, thereby offering an invaluable service to the industry. Villa Cortona Retirement Village, a development by Devmark Construction, required each unit’s order to be delivered individually on the day required within a 24 hour lead time. The project totalled 146 free-standing houses, 78 apartments and 26 frail care and paraplegic units. We sourced the specialised products, mandatory for the frail care centre, and paraplegic and assisted living units, at competitive prices.
Our service excellence awarded us the next Devmark Construction project of 104 units in the Helderberg Manor development in Somerset West.
The Dolphin View Cabanas focused on economic space utilisation. Tiles complement the combined kitchen and dining room area and a skilful bathroom layout utilises a shower-bath combination.
Success in our industry demands competent stock control and supply chain management. Like-minded clients offer accurate rollout plans, thereby maintaining cost effective stock levels offering financial benefits for all.
We believe this is one reason why we have been the sole supplier of tiles to the Famous Brands stable since 2007. Steven Dike, managing director of Famous Brands Development, says: “We require a supplier with a nationwide footprint to supply and service consistently countrywide. Tile Africa Contracts offers competitive prices, and we are able to pass on these benefits to our franchisees, keeping them happy and ensuring our loyalty to Tile Africa Contracts.”
We research all the desired specifications methodically to find the most suitable products or comparable alternatives. The proudly South African DoRego’s restaurant franchise recently rebranded. “Tiles in darker shades accentuate the bright colours in our store design. The vibrant atmosphere complements our brand,” says Gerald Brown, co-owner of DoRego’s. “We’re pleased with the service we receive and when we have unusual specs, Tile Africa Contracts fulfil these.”
We supply national and international Nando’s outlets with porcelain, ceramic, slate and mosaic tiles. The Ghandi Square branch carries a retro theme, one of four design themes developed by Nando’s.
“For the bathroom, we went with a quirky feel and embossed the tiles with funny phrases, like ‘Flush’ and ‘Wash your hands’. This tied in with the funky atmosphere of the venue,” says Dave Cousins, Nando’s designer.
Rustenburg, the Platinum City, is one of the fastest growing towns in the country, providing unique entertainment, conference and accommodation facilities to business travellers and tourists.
High-traffic areas such as restaurants, lodges and conference centres demand durable flooring due to the high footfall experienced. Tile Africa Contracts supplies hardwearing and robust tiles to meet this key specification.
Renovations at Orion Safari Lodge in Rustenburg included developing the design and floor layouts for the conference areas, entrance lobby, bathrooms and patios. Fresh, minimalistic and modern new floor layouts marry earthy tones with stainless steel, elevating the guest experience.
Tile Africa Contracts is a one-stop shop for clients, supplying all requirements, from flooring, cladding and decorative finishes to bathroom ware and accessories
A unique ambiance is the underpinning competitive element of the hospitality industry. Venues regularly undergo renovation, as owners want to safeguard their asset and ratings. These projects necessitate a combination of décor flair and products that can endure the demands of high traffic areas.
The hospitality industry is under pressure with strict watersaving regulations being enforced by certain municipalities. We have added water-saving plumbing accessories to our bathroom ware product portfolio to reduce water wastage.
Tile Africa Contracts provides convenience and simplicity for customers preferring to deal with one supplier for all their tiling and bathroom ware needs. Our team works hand-in-hand with clients on projects, collaboratively selecting products ideal for each space created
We introduced Interbau swimming pool tiles, imported from Germany, to our portfolio. Interbau-Blink, which has a 40-year track record, provides safe tile solutions to create attractive underwater areas.
We supplied tiles for the competition swimming and diving pool at St Dominic’s Catholic School for Girls in Boksburg for architect Charl Groenewald and contractor Boogertman Smit Building.
“With high water quality, the floor and walls of the pool are clearly visible. It’s vital that the tiling is of the highest standard as water appears to magnify any blemishes or irregularity,” said Neil Fourie, Platinum Sport Consulting sport facility design consultant, and the pool designer and structural engineer.
Tile Africa Contracts partners with numerous developers around the country to supply tiles, and in many instances, an installation service. Whether you are planning flooring and cladding solutions for a retail shop or an entire shopping centre development, we are proud to be your full circle partner.
Tiles are particularly appealing for retail developers as they are hardwearing, durable and easy to maintain. The colour ranges and textures of tiles, combined with decorative borders and listelli, allow for infinite design possibilities and create visual interest to entice shoppers into retail spaces.
Corporate head office buildings call for unique identities, and the Softline offices in Woodmead are a perfect example of a sleek, modern look echoing the brand personality.
Tile Africa Contracts specified and supplied tiles and bathroom ware to the East London Airport upgrade project. We provided tiles for the terminals, waiting areas, VIP lounge, bathrooms, and the Wimpy and Mugg & Bean line shops. Brassware was also supplied for the public bathrooms.
It was an honour to be trusted with the supply and service for a project of this magnitude. We worked closely with the client, ACSA, the architect for the project, Bumni Illori from Integrated Design Consultants (IDC Architects), and the contractor, Ian Allan from GVK Eastern Cape.
Strong relationships with our Italian and Greek suppliers guaranteed prompt product delivery of orders placed on short notice.
Supply & Fit Tile Africa Contracts supplies and fits major retailers such as Pick n Pay and Fruit & Veg City. Our supply and fit department has a dedicated warehouse that guarantees a reliable supply chain.
We ensure that tiling is done as unobtrusively as possible to allow minimum inconvenience. On many occasions our team has worked at night to ensure that stores open on time.
Our service extends beyond South Africa and we have tiled retail stores in Mauritius and Zambia. From colourful mosaics for accented walls to a porcelain tile especially developed for Pick n Pay, we offer a professional service that has led to over one million square metres of tiled surfaces.
