Calibra Porcelain

Nature and vitrified technology meld together to produce these stunning recreations of three of the world's finest natural stones.

Calibra porcelain features a smooth, yet non-slip surface, the beautiful aesthetics borrowed from naturally honed stone. 

With all the charm and character of the natural stone captured, Calibra perfectly balances the outstanding aesthetics with the functionality of porcelain. Beautiful, hard wearing and with 'easier to clean' qualities.

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

  • Calibra porcelain patio 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.
     
  • Calibra 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.

Laying Comments

Calibra porcelain patio paving tiles are rectified to give a calibrated, dimensional accuracy. This enables closer jointing so that the tiles can appear as one large uninterrupted, seamless surface of stone flooring.

A rectified floor tile is one whose edges are perfectly vertical with respect to it's surface. This is a result of precise machining of a regular unrectified tile, so that each of the four sides will be at a 90° angle to the top and bottom faces of the tile.

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!
