The right porcelain floor tiles will keep your home beautified for decades to come. These are durable surfaces that stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life. They are easy to clean, difficult to scratch, waterproof, and cheaper than the authentic stone or real wood flooring they mimic so well.

When you opt for tiles that feature MSI's ZeroSlip™ technology, you're choosing peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your family and guests. These tiles utilize MSI's proprietary anti-slip technology to provide dry and wet floor slip-resistance through a potent coefficient of friction value (a scientific measurement that establishes the amount of friction on level, wet floors while walked upon) that exceeds the industry standard by at least 50% and surpasses that of many of the more sought after tiles available today.

So now, with science on your side, you can achieve that high-glamour look for not only less money but with increased safety. Let's take a look at nine of MSI's waterproof and slip-resistant porcelain floor tiles that use this technology.

ASTURIA AZUL

Ideal for indoor and outdoor settings, Asturia Azul porcelain tiles feature a cool white background highlighting long linear veins and delicate shading in black and greys to deliver a look of luxury. Use these tiles to create a flooring both timeless and on-trend.

Here we see Asturia Azul flooring bringing this entire room together. Not only does it create a seamless look, but it also brings out other features in the room while standing out so well itself. Whether a room like this is one of your high traffic areas or not, you can rest easy knowing MSI’s ZeroSlip™ technology is on safety detail.

ASTURIA CIELO

Authentic stone and solid hardwood flooring are always in style, but the real thing comes with costs far beyond the higher price tag. With porcelain tile, you get the same look for less in a non-porous package. This means tiles like Asturia Cielo are stain, mildew, mold, and 100% UV resistant. Perfect for indoor and outdoor settings, they won’t discolor or fade as they face heavy foot traffic or the elements. Even nasty stains like red wine don’t stand a chance against these slip-resistant, waterproof tiles.  

ASTURIA FUOCO

Asturia Fuoco is an outstanding porcelain tile that looks like marble. When you opt for Asturia Fuoco large format tiles, you achieve that coveted marble look without the ongoing nuisance of caring for it. Why spend all your time fretting over your flooring when you should be enjoying it? 

Asturia Fuoco uses long black veining and charcoal gray shading over a dusty gray background to make a luxurious modern statement. Used in a gorgeous bathroom like this one, you’re in good hands, thanks to MSI’s ZeroSlip™ technology.

OXIDE BLANC

OXIDE IRON
