Inside-Outside porcelain tiles

Outside porcelain tiles have many advantages over alternative outside paving materials.They are non porous,fade proof and very durable offering almost zero maintainance.Unlike other materials external porcelain tiles are resistant to stains and dirt and do not have to be sealed thus ideal for outdoor applications.

 

Most porcelain tile ranges offer two options,the INSIDE range of tiles and the OUTSIDE range.This is ideal when the tiles are to flow from a room into the garden particularly if you have Bi-Fold or sliding patio doors

Why Outside porcelain tiles?

 

Porcelain Tiles are Frostproof

External Porcelain tiles have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% which means they’re classified by international bodies as being frost-proof.

 

Maintenance

Unlike natural stone and timber, porcelain tiles are non porous so they do not require sealing

 

Slip resistance

External porcelain tiles have a more textured surface than internal porcelain tiles and are given a rating of R11 which means they are suitable for outside use.

 

Durability

Porcelain tiles are fired in a kiln to 1200 degrees C so they are very dense and incredibly hard.They are resistant to fading and scratches

 

Inside and outside.

A growing trend is sliding or bi-fold doors from the kitchen and living area onto the patio.The same tile flowing from the inside onto the patio gives a remarkable feeling of space.Porcelain tiles are available in two finishes usually natural or polished for the inside and then a GRIP finish for outside.

 

Thickness

External porcelain tiles are available in two thicknesses usually 20mm and 10mm.The only difference is the thickness,a 10mm tile has exactly the same qualities as a 20mm thick tile.

 

20mm tiles can be laid on plastic pedestals or a granular bed although many people prefer laying them on a concrete base.The 10mm tiles must be laid on a concrete base using a suitable adhesive.The 10mm thick tiles are available in bigger sizes and have the advantage that steps and copings can be fabricated and will be more cost effective.An example is the Pennine collection where a 900 x 600mm size is available or you can combine sizes to create an interlocking pattern.

 

The golden rule is site preparation,it's well worth preparing the concrete base properly to ensure future durability.If you have a technical question call our helpline 0121 784 6800.
