Hygienic Surfaces with Anthology and Delight Tile Collections - Jan 21

Now more than ever, there is an emphasis on designing commercial spaces that enhance hygiene, especially in high-traffic environments including offices, hotels and retail spaces. It’s with this in mind, that CTD Architectural Tiles has released two brand new collections, Anthology and Delight, to provide an aesthetic yet antibacterial tile option for the modern commercial space.

In this month’s blog, we’re going to introduce our stunning new collections alongside drawing on the benefits of antibacterial tiles for the specification market.

Before we explore the new collections in detail, we wanted to touch on the practical elements involved in their creation.

Manufactured by LEA Ceramiche, the brand new tiles are made using the PROTECT antibacterial solution; an innovative coating developed using cutting-edge Microban® Technology which eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria.

An ideal choice for heavy footfall areas, antibacterial tiles present a safe and practical surface solution for architects, specifiers and designers alike. Offering increased hygiene levels and suitable for a number of different applications, the innovative coating provides enhanced protection 24 hours a day.

Anthology - Stone Inspired Antibacterial Tiles


Available in five different muted colourways, Anthology is the perfect tile for businesses looking to create a pared-back, neutral interior scheme. Designed to replicate the shade variation and veining of natural stone, the stunning porcelain tiles are extremely versatile and can be used on both walls and floors.

With its unique depiction of natural stone, Anthology would suit retail environments or even a spa, where luxury and comfort are key - this is further accentuated by the choice of colourways on offer, with a selection of neutral hues that would add warmth and ambiance.

Combining enhanced hygiene with a sleek surface design; Anthology will add a touch of sophistication to any commercial scheme.

Delight – A Premium Marble Effect Surface


Inspired by the beauty of Italy’s finest marbles, the Delight collection is comprised of four marble-effect tiles. With its intricate ripples, this premium tile exudes elegance and can be specified in four surface finishes, allowing it to seamlessly blend within any interior.

In addition to its specialised antibacterial coating, Delight also benefits from +36 PTV wet slip resistance in the matt surface finish – therefore we would recommend specification in lobbies, bathrooms and retail spaces. With its eye-catching surface, this antibacterial tile will allow specifiers to offer a high-quality surface that not only looks the part, but also delivers on functionality.

With an increased importance on health and hygiene in the public sector, antibacterial tiles are the way forward; offering a functional yet aesthetic tile solution for the commercial space.
