StepWise technology is infused directly into our top-quality porcelain tile where it increases the dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF), or the traction of the tile. DCOF is the measurement used across the tile industry to determine a tile's frictional resistance, or how it will perform under wet conditions. A DCOF value of at least .42 is standard for interior tile that might be walked on when wet. Tile with StepWise has a DCOF of at least .65--well above the standard.
StepWise is excellent for interior residential and commercial floors and delivers superior traction even on commercial applications like ramps. It's also a favorite for residential outdoor spaces.
