PORCELAIN STONEWARE PAVING
Our newest, most exciting paving product is porcelain stoneware that offers a highly versatile, high performance paving solution enabling you to create safe and practical flooring designs. Fusing a combination of raw materials (sand, quartz, fledspars, kaolin, clay and natural colourants) into a single material and firing it at temperatures above 1230 degrees celcius, produces a paver with exceptional hardness, practically no absorption capabilities, and unmatched mechanical characteristics. Available in a range of colours, sizes, thicknesses and finishes, our porcelain paving can be used as an indoor our outdoor flooring solution.
Why choose porcelain stoneware?
Porcelain stoneware delivers unrivalled technical performance with pure style. Plus porcelain paving is resistant to:
Chemicals - porcelain stoneware is resistant to acids, chemical agents, salt and verdigris
Stains - irritants like mould, oil, moss and dark smudges can't saturate the porcelain so it retains its aesthetic appeal
Loads - it's so strong that every slab can withstand loads of over 1000kg
Thermal Shock - it's frost free and fire resistant, as its properties remain unaltered between -50 degrees and 60 degrees celcius.
Slip - its structured surface means it's slip resistant so safe and can be used for wet and dry areas.
What's more, porcelain paving is easy to:
Clean - it needs no special or seasonal treatment to protect it from staining, and is simply cleaned with a pressure washer
Remove - it's completely removable, serviceable and reusable (unless applied with adhesives), as the outdoor solutions slabs weigh 17kg each.
Where can porcelain paving be used?
You can use porcelain stoneware in residential, commercial and public settings, in wet or dry areas, and even on intense foot and heavy traffic flooring, as they are exceptionally durable. The pavers can be used on terraces, stairways, paths, gardens, driveways, benches, walls, patios, swimming pools, garden stepping stones, indoor living room or bathroom flooring, street furnishing and commercial applications.
Most importantly, each piece is easily and simply put together by any professional tradesperson, without the need for a tiler. They can be set with adhesive, or on sand, gravel, grass, pedestals or using an innovative e-deck system. Plus, the tiles come in two thicknesses, 10mm and 20mm offering greater durability and increased installation solutions. In fact, the two surface finishes for indoor and outdoor use allow for continuity of floor surfacing between your lounge room, terrace and garden.
