Pavestone Natural Grey Sandstone Porcelain Paving

 

About

This stunning reproduction of a Light Grey Sandstone, sawn paving slab is totally realistic and indetectable from its sandstone master to the touch and look.

However, being made from porcelain gives so many benefits over sandstone. It's more durable, stays looking cleaner for longer, easier to maintain and will not be suseptable to frost freeze/thaw errosion.

The paving has straight edges, reproducing sawn sides and
is a very fashionable 900mm x 600mm size giving a contemporary feel.
 

Coverage

42 paving tiles per pallet.

1.85 paving tiles cover approximately 1.0m2

42 paving tiles (1 pallet) cover approximately 23mbased on a 5mm jointing gap.

R11 anti-slip finish to the tile surface 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.


Key features of Granite Porcelain tiles:
 

  • R11anti-slip finish.
     
  • Granite 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.
     
  • 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.
     
  • Granite 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.

 

  • Granite Porcelain tiles are rectified* to give a calibrated, dimensional accuracy. This enables closer jointing so that the tiles appear as one large uninterrupted, seamless surface of flooring.

 

Laying Comments

During installation It is essential to use a Priming Slurry to facilitate a good bond between the tile and the bedding mortar. This will ensure the tiles do not become loose overtime or 'rock' when walked over. 

Priming Slurry should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying. Refer to Porcelain Paving Laying Instructions if in any doubt.

A Flexible Jointing Grout should be used for jointing the paving and care must be taken not to let it dry on the surface of the tile.

* A rectified floor tile is one whose edges are perfectly vertical with respect to its 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.
