craftsmanship applied to hydraulic tiles

STONE anti-slip treatment

After a long period of research with our R+D Mosaics Torra technicians, we have developed the «Stone» system. This system consists of an innovative anti-slip process applied to the hydraulic tile, which transforms the smooth texture of the piece into a totally uniform rough texture, a concept totally unknown until now and that will revolutionize the world of handmade hydraulic mosaic tiles.

Anti-slip tiles for outdoors, bathrooms, terraces…

We make any of our non-slip models.

The «Stone» system can be applied to any of our hydraulic floors, thus covering all possible spaces within the paving both in interior and exterior use with total uniformity, totally impossible to date, such as being able to place the same model chosen in the living room of your home and continue with the same piece to your garden or porch, or to install the same tile in your bathroom in the shower tray, all this combining the traditional smooth texture of the hydraulic tile with the «Stone» anti-slip system.

How do we do it?

Once the pieces are placed we will fill the joints with a plastic and flexible grout (always use light colors since dark colors could stain the pieces, the mixture should be made quite liquid and with a rubber trowel until it fills the entire joint, repeat this process until the joint is completely filled with material. Immediately after doing the grouting, we will wait from 15 to 20 minutes and we will proceed to clean all the surplus grout of all the pavement preferably with a foam trowel, and that we will be rinsing with clean water after each application so as not to stain the pieces and so on. Acids should not be used to remove excess cement or to clean the hydraulic tiles as they could be damaged. To clean the remains of the end of work, cement, etc.; you can use our product Torra Floor Cleaner.

Once the whole installation process is finished, in some cases and during a certain period of time, it is possible to observe the appearance of some white stains (efflorescence) produced by the solidification of soluble salts contained in the water. This behavior is quite common in this type of material. The stains will disappear with daily use and as the pavement is washed with water and neutral soap.

3 examples of anti-slip tile use

Non-slip hydraulic tiles have become a very affordable and indispensable product in many homes. They are safe, easy to clean and durable. These are good reasons why they are the most chosen option when we decide to change the floor of our homes. If there are elderly people, they are almost an obligation to install them.

Safety starts at home with anti-slip flooring

Creating a safe home environment is now easier than ever with slip-resistant tiles that prevent home accidents. With these tiles, you’ll feel like you can walk around without fear of an improper slip or an unseen spill.

And one of their advantages is that they require very little maintenance.

We have recently obtained certification from the independent Applus+ laboratory, certifying our anti-slip tiles at the highest level: Class 3.

The pool is to be enjoyed

It is very typical the image of teenagers or children chasing each other around the pool. With traditional tiles, falls are guaranteed, but with non-slip tiles we can still see them running around the pool with much more peace of mind.

Especially for the little ones who are beginning to take their first steps, this type of tile gives them a certain security in an unfamiliar environment.

Surrounding the pool, or at least a large part of it, with non-slip tiles will also allow you to have a more level and solid surface, which will make it easier for the older members of the family to safely enjoy cool summer evenings by the pool, while the little ones soak in the water, and pleasant sunny afternoons in winter.

Safety is the argument that has undoubtedly tipped the balance definitely towards the option of placing non-slip tiles around the pool, safety for the little ones as well, since with a good non-slip treatment dangerous slips are avoided. All that remains is to carefully choose the right material and design to meet my expectations, although in this aspect I have no doubts…

Non-slip tiles for stairs

In a block of apartments without elevator, one of the common, omnipresent and essential elements is the staircase as an unavoidable way and, the fact that the hydraulic tiles with which it is covered are not suitable, can be the cause of more than one displeasure in the form of slip and fall, especially if children or elderly people live in the block and, especially if the tiles are wet for any reason.

However, to neutralize this risk, it is only necessary to choose suitable hydraulic tiles with a good anti-slip treatment, which will provide the residents of the building with the necessary safety to move, without fear of accidents, along a path that they will normally walk and retrace several times a day, without forgetting, of course, the dangerous runs of the little ones.

Logically, we will not leave aside other aspects when choosing the hydraulic tiles to cover our staircase; details such as color, size, ornamental finishes, appearance with sunlight, with artificial lighting, spatial effect depending on the dimensions of steps, landings, etc. cannot be ignored, since it is a path that we will see and walk very often.

Safe family gatherings

Thanks to the right tiles we will be able to celebrate parties or invite our friends knowing that we can offer a much safer home where they can feel at ease. The meetings will have that extra feeling of well-being and carefree that we will be able to transmit to our guests in an unconscious way.

After placing this type of tiles in our home, if someone slips, it is very likely that it is because of those drinks they are enjoying in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere surrounded by good company that invites you to let go and focus on the things that really matter.
