Porcelain is often associated with being delicate; however, our porcelain outdoor tiles are nothing like your fragile porcelain crockery.
With outdoor tiling, it is important to use a material that is robust so that you won’t need to replace it in a few years’ time. Our outdoor tiles are strong because of the way they are manufactured – all of our porcelain tiles and paving slabs are baked at a high temperature (1200°C) so that they become vitrified. After this process the tile becomes a dense, solid material that can withstand heavy loads. This also means that it’s very difficult to scratch, which is another advantage over traditional tiling materials.
Brawn and beautyThe importance of having strong outdoor tiles leads many people to choose natural stone for their gardens and patios. The problem with natural stone is that it requires sealing and maintenance in order to keep it in prime condition. Another benefit of porcelain is that the material’s low porosity allows it to withstand the staining and dirt that natural stone is so susceptible to.
Porcelain outdoor tiles only require an occasional wash with warm, soapy water to restore their appearance to the day they were laid!
Speaking of the appearance of our tiles – the possibilities are endless! We have a diverse range of textures and designs so you can emulate the look of natural stone but always be confident in the durability and strength of your outdoor tiles!
The safest option for your outdoor tilesPorcelain is also a much safer option than other outdoor tiling materials. Porcelain tiles come in a range of slip resistances (1-5) so that you can always be assured that you are getting the best slip-resistance tile on the market. This is the case in both summer and winter. Porcelain is also very frost-resistant; because of the low porosity, water does not penetrate our outdoor tiles and then freeze as with other stone. So even when it’s cold or rainy, you know you have the safest option!
So if you’re looking for the best option for tiling your outdoor area, consider low-maintenance outdoor porcelain tiles a fantastic choice for your project!
