Porcelain paving is a stunning option for almost any exterior, and interior, space and design scheme. With a pleasing range of colours and finishes this landscaping material is growing in popularity as word spreads of its considerable value for money and unrivalled attributes.
How is porcelain paving produced?
Porcelain paving is crafted by experts so that it endures and offers accurate sizing and thickness. A mixture of clay, sand, feldspar and other minerals is baked in a high temperature kiln – up to 1400°C – to produce a non-porous robust material.
Porcelain slabs possess allure, practicality and strength. Please disregard mental images of old porcelain tea services; this paving can cope with weight, footfall and the British climate and it is fade, slip, frost, stain and watermark resistant. Enjoy maximised performance and minimal maintenance with this versatile alternative to concrete and natural paving.
There’s no need to apply a sealant with most porcelain slabs. Put your feet up and relax; porcelain can almost take care of itself- no human required.
Savour continuity and versatility
Create continuity between indoors and outdoors. Use the same porcelain tiles in conservatories, garden rooms, on terraces and balconies, in porchways, for pathways, dining areas, roof gardens and patios.
From exquisite white to sophisticated black, multicolour to wood effect finishes, there is a porcelain paving product to suit every taste and budget. Add to an existing scheme with confidence, mix and match materials, create contrast, a focal point, an opulent outdoor room.
Porcelain paving is produced by leading manufacturers and stocked by industry specialists including Rivar Sand and Gravel based in Hare Hatch, Newbury, Windlesham and Tadley; expect to fall in love with your landscaping choice at first glance.
Stone and wood effect porcelain slabs deliver the aesthetics of timber or natural stone with the durability of porcelain. Timber and stone naturally have less strength than the lighter porcelain. A key indicator of porcelain slabs superiority is noticeable after a short time; there is no reduction in colours, quality and performance.
A traditional softwood or hardwood deck needs regular pressure washing, staining or oiling but wouldn’t you rather be relaxing in the sunshine and making the most of your outdoor room instead?
