Fila cleans and protects at Cumbrian homes development

Surface care solutions, from FILA’s award-winning Green Line, have been specified as part of an extensive tiling project at Cumbrian Homes’ exclusive Carleton Manor Park development. The project, by Penrith Tile Centre, includes porcelain and stone surfaces from Ca’ Pietra, Marshalls Tile and Stone Interiors and Verona. FILA Cleaner was used to carry out the initial clean on all surfaces – and specified for ongoing maintenance - whilst porous stone surfaces were sealed with solvent-free FILAW68.

Cumbrian Homes’ Carleton Manor Park includes 44 luxury apartments and houses located in Penrith’s Eden Valley. All porcelain and stone surfaces were installed by Paul Birkett Construction, using Tilemaster adhesives and grouts. The installation followed full specification checks by John Williams from Penrith Tile Centre, who helped design the spaces with the team at Cumbrian Homes.

Throughout the development, main bathrooms featured Marshalls’ Tasman wood-effect porcelain and Verona’s Kenyan Grey Mosaics. Lunar tumbled limestone was chosen for ensuites and Astro tumbled marble for kitchens; each supplied by Ca’ Pietra. After installation, FILA Cleaner removed all factory and fixing residues; the highly concentrated, pH-neutral solution can be used at a variety of dilutions for safe daily and deep cleaning of all surfaces. Stone and mosaics were then treated with water-based stain proofer, FILAW68, which seals and protects without altering appearance or forming a film.
