Posted by Daltile Team on Dec 1, 2015 10:30:00 AM

Ever feel like floor slip resistance requirements limit your design choices? Looking good and safety shouldn’t have to be at odds with one another. With StepWise™ technology, you get the best of both worlds so you won’t have to make compromises.

Grip for FloorsVolume 1.0 in Aural Sand 12 x 24

StepWise is a surface on the top of select tile series that increases its DCoF (dynamic coefficient of friction). This commercial flooring gives better slip resistance on interior surfaces. And not just regular floors, but heavier commercial applications like ramps.

Volume 1.0—Daltile’s Latest Style

The latest tile from Daltile with StepWise technology is Volume 1.0. This soft cement-look tile is a great choice for stylish designs both commercial and residential. Available in a popular 12 x 24 size, this tile adds a contemporary flair that makes a perfect canvas to build a design on.

Pressed edges and 10 neutral colors ensure you’ll be able to create a room that’s enjoyable and functional. Check out coordinating mosaics, Keystones™, for walls that accentuate this clean minimal style.

Other StepWise favorites include Pietra Jura and Industrial Park.

Because StepWise is a surface application, you won’t have to sacrifice style to get a floor that stands up to heavy commercial traffic. Our StepWise tile comes in some of the hottest looks in demand today like cement and stone looks.

Easy Maintenance
