Porcelain is Burned at 1400 degrees and that’s what gives it incredible strength and durability. The technical thing is that when 20mm Outdoor Porcelain is made, the strength goes higher than twice of 10mm Porcelain which makes it completely Suitable for Garden Paving even with the highest of Foot Traffic.
-Low Water Absorption
The market standard is less than 0.25%. The water Absorption rate in high quality Outdoor Porcelain Paving like ours is generally less than 0.1% and that’s what makes us market leader in Vitrified Outdoor Porcelain Paving.
-Big Advantages of low water absorption rate in outdoor porcelain
Low water absorption rate ensures that the stains and marks will not be able to completely penetrate through the slabs so cleaning will be much easier than Natural Stone.
-Anti-Slip rating- R11
It rains a lot in British weather and that’s why Patio Slabs need to be Anti-Slip for safety reasons.
R11 is the best Anti-Slip rating that strikes a balance for being perfectly suitable for outdoors and not hard enough to hurt feet. In Anti-Slip its very important to strike this Balance because often you find companies selling R9 which is slippery for outside or R13 which is too rough to walk on and takes off the beauty of slabs.
Our Outdoor Porcelain Paving Tiles are R11 Anti-Slip Rated!
Without good designs, the specs become futile.

-Where can I use porcelain paving
Porcelain paving can be used on patios, terraces, balconies, driveways, pathways, steps and around swimming pools. Make sure you are using the right fixing method to ensure the installation is safe and will last for many years.
-Is porcelain paving safe?
Most porcelain paving has a high anti-slip rating, making it suitable for not only general external use but also in wet areas such as surrounding swimming pools. The tiles are strong so it is unlikely they will crack or chip, and unlike wood, there are no loose boards or splinters.
