Porcelain Paving is the latest in advanced paving solutions that combines Italian styling with robust, durable, vitrified technology.
For many, a natural stone paving that ages over time is exactly what is required but for others a paving that stays looking as fresh and clean as the day it was installed would be preferential.
Simply Porcelain paving is hard wearing and has easy to clean qualities.
R11 Anti-slip Finish is the latest development to meet the growing demand for porcelain outdoor paving. This unique finish roughens the tile surface without changing its appearance giving good grip underfoot in damp and wet weather.
Key features of Simply Porcelain paving are:
- R11Anti-slip Finish.
- Simply Porcelain will not be affected by the seasonal weather changes and will be not deteriorate in freezing weather conditions that can see some stone surfaces deteriorate gradually.
- Porcelain Patio Tiles are resistant to acid and alkali chemicals such as fertilizers and lawn treatments. Moss and algae cannot get established as they can on stone or wood .
- Simply Porcelain will not experience colour fading. Blacks will stay black, not turn to grey, light colours will stay faithful and will not turn grey/brown. In summary they will stay looking aesthetically as laid for many years with minimal cleaning maintenance.
Installing Porcelain paving
Installing Porcelain paving looks at first glance to be as simple as laying any other paving slab or tile.
A key characteristic of porcelain is exceptionally low water absorption, so the porcelain paving will not draw in moisture like other paving materials do. This is a great benefit when it come to the surface resisting staining and staying looking clean.
However, this also means that the paving will absorb almost nothing from the bedding mortar when being installed and a good tile bond will not be achieved unless the tiles are primed with a slurry primer just before laying. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t add excessive cost to the installation.
