EC1 Porcelain Tile by Cerdisa

Trinity Surfaces aims to provide the best flooring solutions, not only in quality but overall durability, versatility, and style. Our long list of satisfied clients includes premier national brands in a variety of industries, including restaurants, hotels, wellness facilities, resorts, retail outlets, residential, and more.

We’d like to introduce one of the most innovative lines of sustainable porcelain tiles, EC1 porcelain tile produced by Cerdisa. EC1 porcelain tile is ideal for projects in all kinds of spaces. They are durable and high-quality, built to last, and are even manufactured sustainably via LEED-certified standards.

The product was initially named after London’s EC1 (Eastern Central Postcode) district, a high-density central business district filled with a range of classic and contemporary architectural styles.

Why Choose Porcelain Tile

Cerdisa porcelain tile is ideal for flooring for homes, businesses or public spaces. It’s not only easy to install, but its durability makes it useful for all types of projects. In both design and use, the EC1 tile line is innovative and built to last in outdoor conditions, as well as large public buildings and even luxury complexes.

Easy to Choose and Install

These tiles suit almost any large indoor or outdoor setting, both private and public spaces. They come in a multitude of appealing neutral colors and a range of larger formats, and clients have their choice of surface types as well, so there’s a ton of flexibility when it comes to choosing your ideal look.

Porcelain offers a similar type of stylistic appeal as marble but is much lighter and easier to install.

Maximum Durability

This type of stoneware has a dense, non-porous body that is exceptionally strong. It is made using compact clay, which creates the non-porous properties. Like marble, slabs are robust, holding fast even under the weight of water, which makes them ideal for outdoor spaces.

Various coatings are available for these types of tiles for both resistance purposes (for instance, a non-slip surface) as well as appearance preferences.

Abrasion Resistance

EC1 porcelain tile has a high abrasion resistance, which means that they do not tend to get worn down when people or things pass over them. They are durable not only in quality but also in appearance, in that they are virtually scratch, and stain-free.

A Lasting Look

This type of tile is not only resistant to slippage, it’s also resistant to wear, natural weathering, stains or even chemical exposure. Materials are tested to check for their overall resistance. The tiles are also quite easy to clean and tend to look new for a while as they are so resistant to wear.

Aesthetically, of course, this type of style fits almost any type of décor, especially in broad, open areas that are exposed to natural elements.


The EC1 porcelain tile collection works with most types of buildings. Tiles are well-suited for residential buildings and even outdoor areas offering a functional option for architects and designers alike. We make it easy to fit these into your building and plans, thanks to the innovative research that backs this top-of-the-line product.

These properties often earn the highest scores in building code quality and sustainability.

  • Not using radioactive materials, known pollutants or products that could be harmful to human health

  • Reusing energy by-products throughout the factory where possible
  • Recycling waste
