Antico Porcelain

Unlike most porcelain paving, Antico features fettled edges, replicating the hand-cut edge of natural stone paving. The significance of this is bought out in the detail when laid. 

Almost Indistinguishable from the natural stone product product it replicates, Antico porcelain will remain looking clean and 'just laid' for many years, without the scrubbing and cleaning associated with natural stone.

Luxurious, Italian porcelain paving with a rustic feel, Monviso porcelain is hard wearing and would suit a traditional country garden.

Antico porcelain tiles can be profiled with a choice of edge profiles for making steps or smooth edges for raised patios.

Key features of Antico paving:
 

  • R11Anti-slip Finish.
     
  • Antico porcelain paving tiles will not be affected by the seasonal weather changes and will not deteriorate in freezing weather conditions that can see some stone surfaces deteriorate gradually.
     
  • Antico porcelain paving 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.
     
  • Antico porcelain paving tiles 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.

 

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.

Laying Comments
 

Lay on an MOT Type 1 or GSB aggregate sub-base, over a geo-textile covering.

Set the paving tiles on a full wet mortar bed (40mm), using a 5:1 sharp sand : cement ratio.

Cut tiles with a 'Diamond Porcelain Cutting Blade' (circular no teeth) on a hand tool  or table saw.  Use 'water dust suppression'.

It is essential to use a Priming Slurry, which should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying.

Joint width ideally 5mm (optimum cosmetically).

Porcelain is manufactured in batches and the the colour and texture can vary from batch to batch. It is therefore essential to lay the paving by mixing the tiles from each of the packs that are to be laid. This ensures that the overall desired hue is achieved and evens out any slight colour discrepancies. Laying your patio one pallet at a time can lead to slight but visible colour banding.

Keep a note of the 'batch code' of the porcelain being laid in case you need more to complete or extend your paved area. This can be found on the packaging (usually a number followed by a letter, or a six digit number.

flexible jointing grout should be used to joint the tiles and care must be taken not to let it dry on the surface of the tile.

Please refer to our laying instructions if in any doubt.

Keep your paving looking superb, year after year!
