Built-in hygiene from CTD Architectural Tiles
With more emphasis on sanitation than ever as the commercial sector continues to adapt for the post-pandemic future, leading commercial tile supplier CTD Architectural Tiles is making it easy for designers to build hygiene into every project – without compromising on aesthetics.
Antibacterial Protect® technology is integrated into these tiles during manufacturing, and this innovative coating eliminates 99.9% of surface bacteria – making it the ideal choice for areas with heavy footfall. Because the added hygiene comes from within the product the need to use harsh chemicals for cleaning is eliminated, which is beneficial for the environment; another key design consideration.
While the use of antibacterial tiles may historically be associated with design projects for assisted living schemes and residential care homes, enhanced hygiene should be an important factor in any high traffic environment from offices to hotels.
Working closely with leading manufacturers from around the world to source the latest innovative products, CTD Architectural Tiles has added three new antibacterial tile ranges to its carefully-curated tile collection this year. Created by renowned designer Ferruccio Laviani, the Masterpiece collection seamlessly combines classic Italian style with the practical benefits of a high anti-slip rating and built-in hygiene.
Alternatively, the Pure Stone range is available in four stone-effect shades for an elegant appearance inspired by the beauty of natural San Vicente stone from southern Spain, classic French Limestone, Gris du Marais marble from France and Billiemi marble from Sicily. As well as the benefits of built-in antibacterial properties, the Pure Stone collection offers users a wide range of neutral floor tiles suited to a huge variety of commercial sector projects. Pure Stone is also the ideal choice for those looking to bring the inside, out as it can be used seamlessly both indoors and outdoors – a key trend for the commercial sector this year.
For even bolder designs, CTD Architectural Tiles also offers Luce, a unique tile range which combines a high performance antibacterial glaze with a striking finish reminiscent of silk. This creates a truly lustrous visual statement which alters as the viewer moves past it.
Not only does CTD Architectural Tiles’ antibacterial tile collection offer a hygienic and eco-friendly solution, but it also comprises a variety of colour options and sizes to suit all project styles and budgets. The full collection of antibacterial tiles is available to view online where specifiers can also take advantage of CTD Architectural Tiles’ quick and easy sample ordering service.
