Introducing the next generation of outdoor paving
Our new Porcelain Paving and Porcelain Tiles are the latest addition to our paving range. This Outdoor Porcelain Paving is a top-of-the-line paver that will give your project a high-class look and finish with significant cost savings.
This premium architectural paving product gives you the luxury look of natural stone with superior technical performance in all outdoor applications.
They are so durable, they will not discolour with weathering, and unlike concrete or natural stone paving, they do not require sealing. They are naturally water, salt, stain, frost and chemical-resistant.
Porcelain Paving is also an extremely versatile landscaping product that can be installed on a compacted base + mortar and deck jack systems.
Features & Benefits
Porcelain is one of the most durable paving materials available (they are still digging up porcelain pieces from Pompeii 2,000 years after the Vesuvius eruption). Our tiles are resistant to heat, frost, salt and chemicals and will remain colourfast in New Zealand’s harsh weather conditions. They are extremely hard-wearing and have a high tensile strength, which means they can be used on deck jack systems.
Porcelain is an incredibly dense material that absorbs less than 0.05% water. This lack of porosity means that no sealing is required, and the product is incredibly resistant to staining/efflorescence (more porosity = more chance of staining and dirt getting into your tiles.) Products such as stone are very porous and require regular sealing to keep them clean and resistant to weather conditions, as the sealant wears away over time. Once dirt penetrates stone, it is almost impossible to get clean again.
Cleaning Porcelain Tiles is easy. The best way is with warm soapy water and a brush.
Note: Sealing can cost up to +$25/m2 on top of the paving purchase price and must be repeated every 3-5 years.
Porcelain is made by firing clay (a plentiful resource) in a kiln. This process is much more environmentally sustainable than other methods of manufacture, such as extracting raw stone from the ground and then shipping it great distances.
Moreover, when porcelain degrades at the end of its life cycle, it does not release toxic compounds into the soil as chemical treatment on wood and stone might.
Also, due to the lack of surface porosity porcelain does not require the use of chemical cleaning agents. Best of all, at the end of its life cycle porcelain is recyclable: it can be broken up and used in cement, roading substrate, brick or tile mosaics and even be used to make new porcelain tiles.
You’ll find our porcelain tile range is perfect for patios, courtyards, swimming pools, wall cladding and more. Now you can give your home a fantastic indoor/outdoor flow by matching your outdoor tiles with those inside.
Our Outdoor Porcelain Paving comes in a wide range of colour options and accurately imitates both stone and wood finishes. This opens up an exciting new range of design options for designers and landscapers working with outdoor (and indoor) spaces. This product can also be laid on compacted base + mortar or deck jack systems, enabling a huge range of landscaping options.
