Outdoor Porcelain Tile

Porcelain Paving Decoded
(By Royale Stones)

Porcelain paving is a new product in the Ireland market. It's our duty to provide our customers with the required information about outdoor porcelain paving tiles.

1. High Strength

Porcelain is produced using selection of raw materials like white clay, quartz etc., pressing to 4600 tons (400kg/cm2), firing at 1200-1250 degrees for 90 minutes and rectifying. This gives it the breaking strength of over 9500N making them suitable for outdoors, even for areas with high foot traffic.

2. Low Water Absorption

The market standard is less than 0.50%. All our outdoor porcelain tiles meet that standard with majority of them comes with water absorption rate of below 0.1% and that’s what makes us one of the most prominent supplier of outdoor porcelain paving slabs in the Ireland.

Big Advantages of Low Water Absorption Rate in Outdoor Porcelain

The low water absorption rate makes it hard for the stains and marks to penetrate the surface, which means easier maintenance.

Anti-Slip Rating - R11 (What it Means)

Since we live is a country where it rains a lot, it's vital that the product used outdoors have a good anti-slip rating.

All our outdoor porcelain tiles comes with R11 slip rating, which makes them ideal for outdoor areas.

3. Designing

The same consistency can be seen with the subtle (thanks to the designing team) variation adding the character to the surface of paving slabs, giving them the natural look whilst maintaining the merits of 20mm porcelain.
