Crush, Fireclay’s new 100% Recycled Glass Tile, is grown from right within Fireclay’s local environment, and the result is a glass tile line that is unique, sustainable, and stunning. The name “Crush” stems from the fact that Fireclay sources the raw waste glass from within 20 miles, crushes and processes the glass in its local San Jose, CA manufacturing facility, and then transforms the material into stunning recycled glass tile. The color names are inspired by natural elements (Acai, Poppy, Walnut, etc), mimicking the organic nature of Fireclay’s localized sourcing and production of Crush. The result is a sustainable recycled glass tile line that is available immediately for residential and commercial projects, and contributes towards LEED construction credits.
Crush sets itself apart from other recycled glass tiles because it is:
- Designed & Manufactured in the United States.
- Recycled pre-consumer window glass sourced from within 20 miles of Fireclay’s manufacturing facility.
- Proprietary glass fusing technology paired with state-of-the-art kiln firing results in recycled glass tiles that take less than one-fourth the energy of traditional cast-glass tile.
- Made to order in just two weeks.
- Like all of Fireclay Tile products, custom color, size and shape development are available.
Crush is made-to-order within two weeks from Fireclay Tile’s San Jose, CA factory. With 40 different colors, available in both gloss and matte finishes, and an array of 17 sizes with complementary borders, the design options are limitless. Fireclay continues its sustainable, unique artisanal manufacturing process within its open air, energy efficient factory located in San Jose, which complements its open-air, day-lit ceramic tile factory in Aromas, CA. Fireclay can also reliably fulfill Crush orders as large as several thousand square feet for commercial, hospitality and retail projects. Since the new series is locally made, its fuel and transport costs are a fraction of those of larger, more traditional manufacturers who are increasingly outsourcing production abroad.
