‘PROTECT:’ Antibacterial Tile You Can Count On

October 18, 2018

As more information emerges about the overall cleanliness (or lack thereof) of different surfaces, the need for a safer option is bigger than ever. Historically, it wasn’t always possible to marry the ideas of “safe” and “beautiful.” Tile producers were focused on function and aesthetic, not cleanliness.

Nowadays, the tides are changing and designers are seeking options that are more dynamic, from functional and stylish to sustainable and antibacterial. With new technology like Microban, wall and floor tiles can now be what designers are in constantly in search of: a safe and beautiful product.

The PROTECT collection uses Microban technology to continually activate its antimicrobial properties, making each product healthy, safe, and protected. Designed with high performance in mind, PROTECT was made for spaces and facilities where germs need to be combated in every way, shape, and form- including surface design. It is an ideal product for:

  • Hospitals and other healthcare facilities
  • Restaurants, kitchens, and other food prep spaces
  • Gyms, spas, and other health clubs
  • Schools, airports, and other high traffic businesses

A lot of the bacterias and germs that live on surfaces are not visible. However, it is important to know that although we can’t always see them, they’re definitely there. With PROTECT’s antimicrobial technology, the growth of these invisible enemies is limited, more than other competing products.

The products in the PROTECT collection are easier to clean, which make it a preferred product for pretty much any and every designer. Those in-between cleans are more effective than usual because the “big ones” sustain for a longer period of time.

Now, let’s browse some of the offerings in the collection.
