The world of Tile is constantly evolving and now is the time to prepare for the future.

The Covid-19 crisis has focused the world on solving a problem together like no other problem has in the past. Most of us are adapting – working from home and taking care of the family, reorganizing our spaces and stepping up our cleaning. It’s a new chapter in our lives. This new reality makes it a great time to gather ideas for a kitchen, bath, laundry room, mud room, or home office remodel.

Introducing PROTECT: Antibacterial porcelain tile

An exclusive line of extremely high-performance antimicrobial floor and wall tiles, designed for healthy, safe and protected living spaces from Panaria. This is an innovation that will last well past Covid-19.

Triangle Tile & Stone carries this antibacterial porcelain tile from Panaria – a pioneer in this realm – in-stock. Panaria has 35 years of developing and growing their product line and it’s produced in the United States!

What makes them different:

  • They have figured out how to apply their technology to virtually any surface
  • Silver-Ion based active ingredient
  • Ingredient is integrated permanently

How it works:

  • Powerful action- eliminates microbes and prevents reproduction of bacteria
  • Continuous Protection – works 24/7 for the life of the product
  • Eternal Effectiveness – permanently integrated into the products

Other benefits of the Microban™ technology is the reduction of odor – bacteria is the #1 cause of bad odors and avoiding the use of harsh chemicals. The tile itself has the odor fighting technology built-in.
