About

Replicating the finest Roman stone, Opus Porcelain Paving is not only stunningly beautiful but is hard wearing and has easy to clean qualities.

Opus has three paving tile sizes to facilitate an easy to lay, repeating pattern, recreating a random 'Opus' pattern used extensivly in Roman times.

Alternatively, it can also be laid using individual single sizes. Opus is available in four shades.

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.


Key features of Opus:
 

  • R11Anti-slip Finish.
     
  • Opus porcelain paving will not be affected by the seasonal weather changes and will be 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.
     
  • Opus 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

Opus 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.

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.

As with all paving, it is 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.

It is essential to use a Slurry Primer, which should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying. The base mortar should contain an SBR Bond additive included within the mix. Please refer to the laying instructions if in any doubt.

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

Each of the colour swatches reproduced above demonstrate the overall hue of a paved area. The natural colour variation of individual paving tile may vary significantly when viewed individually.
