Tips & Best Practices from Mosa Magazine: There are many considerations in specifying materials and surfaces, but perhaps none are more compelling than the health and safety of those who will inhabit the space. For design professionals, an even greater challenge can be communicating the benefits of their selections to clients during concept and design meetings.
The Tile Council of North America (TCNA) has compiled a bulletin outlining the health, safety and environmental benefits that are naturally inherent to ceramic tile. In a world where many people are hearing about long-term health impacts of chemicals in modern building products, it is comforting to know that these concerns are a non-issue with ceramic tile:
1) VOC, Formaldehyde, and PVC-Free
2) It is hypoallergenic and made of natural ingredients such as clay and sand
3) It comes in a wide variety of slip-resistant options
Mosa tiles are vitreous ceramic, also known as porcelain, which embody all of the TCNA-cited health, safety and environmental benefits. In addition, they are the world’s only Cradle to Cradle certified tile, adhering to elevated standards of sustainability. They are a perfect choice for commercial projects where health and safety concerns are paramount. Click here to learn more.
