As this product is heavier than we can deliver on our standard tail-lift service we have two options for delivery:

- if you have your own offloading equipment on site, for example a fork-lift or tele handler (not simply manpower alone), you can benefit from our lower price by agreeing to use your own offloading equipment to remove the goods from the vehicle

- if you do not have your own offloading equipment, we can split the packs across extra pallets for you and offload as usual on our tail-lift and pump truck

Please ensure you agree to the appropriate option

Split The Pack If you don't need a full pack of paving we can split a pack for you, give our team a call today or speak to them on live chat for more information.

Colour Variation
Low Variation

This paving has a low amount of colour and shading variation present within the range

Water Absorbency
Low Absorption

During tests, this paving absorbs less than 0.1% water when fully saturated. The lower the water absorption, the lower the risk of algae growth and staining. By comparison, concrete paving has an average water absorption of 6% and natural stone, 1-2%

Flexural Strength
Excellent

During testing, this paving showed flexural strength of 40 Mpa. The flexural strength value shows how much bending stress a paving unit can be put under before it breaks and the higher the number, the stronger the paving. By comparison, concrete paving has an average flexural strength of 5 Mpa

Frost Resistance
Great

During a repeated test cycle of freezing and thawing, this paving did not lose strength. This result demonstrates excellent paving resilience

Slip Resistance
Low Risk

This paving has a slip resistance rating of R11. This rating means the surface is slip-tested for use on flat ground when wearing footwear in both wet and dry conditions, indoors and outside

Dimensional Tolerances
Rectified

This paving is classified as 'rectified' meaning it is cut to size subsequent to firing in the kiln and as a result, it has minimal dimensional tolerances between individual slabs of up to 2mm +/- . Jointing allowances should be gauged accordingly. Note, slab sizes quoted are nominal and work sizes are often up to 5mm smaller than those stated

Body Colour
Colour Bodied

This paving is 'colour-bodied' meaning it is vitrified throughout and the body colour is a similar tone to the upper face. This is important as if surface damage were to occur, the colour of the under layer will be a similar shade

Bullnosing and Exposed Edges
Central Vein (black heart)

Some vitrified paving has an occasional central vein running horizontally through the body of the stone which is more prominent when the stone is cut. It is therefore recommended that a cut edge is not used for very specific applications where an exposed edge is required such as bullnosed steps

Material Information

Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Characteristics:

Porcelain, ceramic and vitrified products are manufactured from naturally occurring aggregates, cement and binders, all of which are subject to colour and texture variation. Variation in colour and dimension may occur between batches of the same stone, although this type of material is relatively consistent in colour tone. Some manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage and as with all paving materials, dimensional variances may occur. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size, use or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer's and our own opinion of the product's features.

Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Description:

Porcelain, ceramic and vitrified paving is a manmade paving material, constructed from naturally occurring kaolin clay materials and minerals such as quartz and feldspar which is then fired at 1200 Celsius to offer an extremely hard-wearing and low-maintenance paving product suited to both indoor and outdoor applications. Its low water absorbancy means it attracts very little residue or algae, but regular care and maintenance is requied for surface grime and dirt. Vitrified products are lightly textured to improve slip resistance and the dimensions are more accurate than those seen with natural stone paving.

Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Colours:

The colours of this material are uniform with a subtle, evenly distributed variation. Many of the products offer the same colour palette as its natural stone equivalent without the irregular characteristics found in the natural stone paving material making it especially suited to clean, contemporary design schemes.

What's the Difference between Porcelain and Ceramic Paving?

The appearance of ceramic and porcelain paving is quite similar, however the manufacture and performance of each varies. The key differences are:

  • Porcelain is made from a finer clay than ceramic and is fired at a hotter temperature for a longer period of time. This makes it a harder paving stone
  • Porcelain is less porous than ceramic. Lower porosity means less cleaning
  • The colour patterns on porcelain are ink printed and penetrate through into the top layers of paving whereas ceramic paving has a colour pattern transfer laser printed onto the surface. This means the porcelain paving performs better against chips or scratches
