Looking for non-skid "diamond plate" ceramic tile


I'm looking for a product I've seen before somewhere, can't remember where...it's a 6" x 6" ceramic tile with a "diamond plate" pattern on top intended to be a non-slip product for use in utility rooms and such. I want to tile the landing to by basement steps with it. Does anybody know where I can find this product online? Thanks so much for any help!

The particular tile I saw was a red brick color by the way.

Thanks, but those look like extreme duty commercial/industrial products. I was looking for a 6x6 ceramic tile with a diamond plate pattern embossed in the top for home use. Thanks again.

Thanks. I scoured those sites for quite a while but couldn't find anything. You don't happen to have a direct link (?). Thanks yet again!

No I don't right now but they sell the stuff. You are looking for quarry tile in the non-slip style. That stuff is all over the place.

Go to that website and either find one of their outlets in your area or contact them via email, they'll point you in the right direction.

Now let me give you this WARNING.

That tile is a bee-itch to grout. You should be able to order it either waxed or with a factory grout release already on it. Not sure if they still do that but I'm thinking they do. If not, then install your own grout release after you install the tile and before you apply any grout. OH! And have a couple of toothbrushes handy when you grout it, you'll need them.

I just got finished epoxy grouting a 30 sq. ft. 4x4 backsplash. You want to talk about the "B" word...then talk about epoxy grout. I thought I was going to shoot myself. In the end it came out 100% pefect though. The road getting there was rocky to say the least.

Another one you might check into is Crossville Tile. Do a search on their site for a product called "Crosstread".

It's exactly what you're looking for.
