PROLAT GOES TO PREVEZA!
There is nothing more rejuvenating than a nice stroll in a beautiful, well-tended park, which for city dwellers might be the closest thing to nature they can enjoy. In Preveza, you can find such a tiny oasis in the Park of Democracy, which, after its recent renovation, is not only a small but precious green lung but also an easily accessible place for relaxation and walking. Therefore, besides being aesthetically attractive, the best possible material for the park paths must also be safe and comfortable for pedestrians. And PROLAT, once again, had the perfect solution: Stabilized Ceramic Floor, which is suitable for all sorts of outdoor public or private areas and is an excellent choice for parks, pedestrian precincts, squares, etc. Stabilized Ceramic Floor, one of the best-known quality products of PROLAT, consisting of ground tiles, pebbles and pozzolan-Theran earth, is water permeable and consequently absorbs rain water, so the subsoil does not dry up and its final earthen, “compact” surface is remarkably comfortable for walking. PROLAT recommends unconditionally Stabilized Ceramic Floor as the ideal alternative to concrete, as it is an absolutely eco-friendly and bioclimatic floor characterized by natural beauty, which is, after all not just desirable but totally necessary, especially in modern urban environments.

PROLAT GOES TO ILIAS LALAOUNIS JEWELRY MUSEUM!
It is said that all that glitters is not gold… yet sometimes it is! In Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, a truly magical place in the heart of the historical centre of the capital, at the very foot of the Acropolis, that used to house the workshops and family home of the famous goldsmith, artist and academician, it is not only the exquisite exhibits that glitter but also the building itself – both metaphorically and literally! On the Roof Garden, PROLAT was called on to contribute to the creation of an environment worthy of the glamour of the first and only Museum of Jewelry and Decorative Arts in Greece and it did, with an equally unique product: Quartz Mosaic. In this specific case, it was decided to use quartz from the Gold series (the most impressive one of the company thanks to the golden glints in the material), which is perfectly suited both for the building and for the theme of the museum. Quartz Mosaic is a versatile and tasteful anti-slip floor coating with outstanding mechanical strength, recommended by PROLAT mainly for outdoor areas of all types. The polyurethane resin that it contains lends perfect elasticity to the material, while the absence of joints makes it particularly easy to clean. PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic, which is available in various colours, thanks to the natural quartz stone contained, does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaltered in any weather conditions and requires no maintenance. Quartz Mosaic Gold is indeed a valuable product that justifies both its reputation and its name! Construction Partner: Kappa Advice Colour Code Applied: QM70
PROLAT GOES ONCE AGAIN TO TOLO!
The demands of modern life set the bar really high for the construction materials used today, which have to be not only practical, safe and hard-wearing but also aesthetically attractive. The products of PROLAT meet all these requirements. One of them, Quartz Mosaic, was used on the exterior areas and stairs of the house shown in the photo, a cottage in Tolo, a famous resort spread amphitheatrically on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Argolic Gulf. PROLAT recommends Quartz Mosaic for floor coating mainly in outdoor areas, as it is an anti-slip material exhibiting outstanding mechanical strength, which can be applied to smooth concrete, common cement mortar or even old tiles. The natural quartz stone contained does not fade if exposed to sunlight, that’s why PROLAT guarantees that the material remains unaltered even under adverse weather conditions and requires no maintenance. Quartz Mosaic ranks high from aesthetic aspect too, as clearly shown by the picture. That’s why it is an ideal choice for all sorts of constructions, including commercial and public spaces, as well as private residences. (Applied Colour codes: QM6, QM16)
PROLAT SUPPORTS RENEWABLE ENERGY!
BEAL (ΒΕΑΛ) power plant exploits the biogas produced in sanitary landfills, significantly contributing to the protection of the environment by producing renewable electricity and by reducing the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the consumption of fossil fuels. A company for which environmental protection is a top priority would naturally use only high-quality and eco-friendly materials in harmony with its targets. The contribution of PROLAT to the premises of BEAL industry was double, with two of its products: LavaPaint and Quartz Mosaic. PROLAT chose LavaPaint and Quartz Mosaic for the built bookcase. These products are popular, ideal not only for walls and floors but also for built structures. PROLAT applied to the walls LavaPaint with Kourasani, a natural paint often chosen for facades and exterior masonry walls, which may renew even existing walls and transform them into monolithic, waterproof surfaces in any colours you prefer. However, what differentiates LavaPaint from ordinary paints is its slightly coarse texture that creates a clearly attractive aesthetic result and a pleasant sense of naturalness. The choice of PROLAT for outdoor areas was Quartz Mosaic, a very practical and durable material that does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaffected by adverse weather conditions and requires no maintenance at all. Work place is as important as our home environment not only because it is where we spend a large amount of our time on a daily basis but also because it affects our mood and by extension our work performance. That’s why it deserves only the best possible materials. And PROLAT can definitely guarantee them!
PROLAT GOES TO EXPERIENCE PARK!
Beside the sea and just a short hop from the busy centre of the Greek capital, an impressive 70,000-square metre park, masterfully designed by Doxiadis+ architecture office, has opened its gates to the public. Experience Park, which is part of the Ellinikon Metropolitan Park, offers a rich variety of activities and experiences for all ages and preferences in a spectacular environment including an amazing fountain with hundreds of water jets, light installations, squares, gardens, an outdoor training space and a forest playground with safe wooden constructions and play equipment. PROLAT played a major role in the creation of this new green oasis meant to serve as a model of sustainable living and recreation, contributing its Stabilized Ceramic Floor, an excellent material suitable for all sorts of outdoor areas that has a great advantage: it is water permeable and can thus absorb rain water, so the subsoil does not dry up. The final ceramic-earthen surface of the Stabilized Ceramic Floor, which consists of ground tiles, pebbles and pozzolan-Theran earth, is “compact” and particularly comfortable for walking or jogging; that’s why PROLAT chose this product for an urban park where visitors wish to have the chance to relax and get away from everyday routine by walking, exercising and playing. Stabilized Ceramic Floor is an ideal alternative to concrete as it is an absolutely eco-friendly, cold and bioclimatic floor characterized by remarkable natural beauty. In all great projects, such as floor and pathway covering in Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, the renovation of Olof Palme Park in Thessaloniki, the restoration of the traditional bridge of Plaka and many more, PROLAT is always there, participating in the works with its innovative ideas and its high-quality and exceptionally hard-wearing products, which consistently prove that amid the grey monotony of big cities beauty is not an unnecessary luxury but a necessity and a source of rejuvenation for the people of today.
PROLAT GOES TO A MEXICAN RESTAURANT!
Do you like Mexican food? If so, you don’t have to travel to the other end of the world to enjoy it. Ancho Mexican Grill in Kifissia, Athens, offers all the famous Mexican dishes cooked by traditional, environmentally friendly methods with daily fresh ingredients. The colourful, cheerful and youthful ambience, which reflects the philosophy of the restaurant and the vivacity, intensity and variety of Mexican cuisine had to be balanced by a calmer and relaxing neutral colour, such as the pale gray selected by PROLAT for the floors of Ancho. And the most suitable material for such a place, one that ensures a tasteful aesthetic result along with the best possible functionality, was of course LavaPlaster. This particularly popular product of PROLAT guarantees exceptionally wear-resistant and perfectly waterproof, monolithic and absolutely smooth surfaces without fissures and capillary cracks. LavaPlaster may be used on new or already existing floors and is only 4mm thick. PROLAT recommends covering LavaPlaster with a special varnish that fully protects against staining by oils and all kinds of pollutants. Finally, LavaPlaster is available in more than 150 fantastic shades that can satisfy any preference and demand. An excellent product worthy of its excellent reputation!
PROLAT KNOWS ALL ABOUT GARDENS TOO…
The exterior spaces of a residence are not less important than its interior as they are the first thing a visitor sees and therefore play a decisive role in positive first impressions. That’s why the choice of the right materials matters so much. PROLAT had the most ideal solution for the garden of this small detached house in Kavouri, Athens: Quartz Mosaic, which is suitable for floor coating mainly in outdoor areas, such as gardens, yards, terraces, balconies, and staircases, as well as shop floors, pedestrian precincts and other areas subject to heavy use. Quartz Mosaic, one of the most widely known products of PROLAT, is an anti-slip material that exhibits outstanding mechanical strength. Thanks to the polyurethane resin it contains, it possesses absolute elasticity and is particularly easy to clean, as no joints are needed. PROLAT unconditionally recommends Quartz Mosaic for exterior areas like the garden of this house not only because of its aesthetic advantages and the wonderful colours that it owes to the different colourations of natural quartz stone (the photos speak for themselves), but also because it does not fade or change if exposed to sunlight, humidity and adverse weather conditions in general and requires no maintenance. It is practical, beautiful and hard-wearing; what else could one ask for from a material?
PROLAT GOES FOR A CUP OF COFFEE TO FEMENINO!
Femenino in Kifissia, Athens, is no ordinary café; it is the first Athenian shop of the homonymous chain that cooperates with women-owned coffee farms from 9 Latin American countries, contributing to the financial self-sufficiency and social empowerment of women in remote, poor areas through training them in top quality coffee cultivation. Such a special shop certainly needs special materials to show its aesthetic dimension to advantage. LavaPaint, one of the most popular products of PROLAT, was the ideal solution for the creation of a warm, hospitable and natural atmosphere that mirrors the company's philosophy. What really differentiates PROLAT LavaPaint from usual paints is its slightly coarse texture that lends surfaces a particularly attractive and original natural appearance. Its advantages are not limited to the aesthetic result, however. PROLAT unconditionally recommends LavaPaint for new works or restorations involving either interior or exterior walls, which can be turned into monolithic, coloured "natural" surfaces. Finally, it should be noted that LavaPaint is available in various colours and also in a special edition as a finishing render suitable for exterior insulation. A truly excellent material that can upgrade and literally transform a place!
