Your clean, elegant home
Protected by Active Surfaces®
The home is the place where you can feel safe. This is why Active Surfaces® offer protection from viruses, bacteria, pollutants and bad odours. Active Surfaces® exploit the photo-catalytic properties of titanium dioxide, transforming simple ceramic slabs into eco-active materials with antibacterial and antiviral, anti-pollution, anti-odour and self-cleaning properties.
Safety for every style
The four Active Surfaces® collections exalt the properties of the brand in a designer range suited to any style. The product range and variety of colours, surface area, formats and thicknesses mean that there is an ideal eco-active surface for every project.
A solution for the whole home
The antibacterial and antiviral, anti-pollution, anti-odour and self-cleaning properties make Active Surfaces® ceramic surfaces the ideal choice for any room in the home, from the bathroom to the kitchen. Active Surfaces® technology is able to eliminate over 99% of bacteria and viruses, including Sars-Cov-2 (responsible for Covid-19), making the home a safer place for everyone.
A 100% Italian idea
The result of the Iris Ceramica Group research, in partnership with the Department of Chemistry of the University of Milan, Active Surfaces® ceramic surfaces are the all-Italian answer that not only holds great design value but also meets the need for safety and protection.Find out more
The science of Active Surfaces®
Active Surfaces® exploit the photo-catalytic properties of titanium dioxide which, combined with silver, transforms the ceramic slabs into eco-active materials that destroy viruses, bacteria, pollutants and bad odours. The added silver also means that Active Surfaces® are effective even in the dark.Find out more

Active Surfaces® ensure constant, lasting action that remains effective during the whole ceramic life cycle. This is made possible by the pioneering manufacturing process that has always distinguished Iris Ceramica Group.
A sustainable choice
Produced in factories with zero emissions, Active Surfaces® are 100% recyclable and, in conformity with LEED requirements, are made with over 40% of recycled materials. Various laboratory tests have demonstrated that 1 m2 of Active Surfaces® takes just 2 years to compensate the nitrogen oxide emissions required to produce it, in contrast to traditional inert construction materials.
