Recently, the ceramic tile industry amplified the use of porcelain floor tile from indoors to outdoors with the advent of 2 cm porcelain pavers. That’s about 3/4 “ thick; heavy duty enough for vehicle access, driveways in particular. 

 

This extraordinary step in the evolution of porcelain tile allows seamless transitions from indoor flooring to exterior paving. Now, we can enjoy our Florida indoor/outdoor lifestyles with exterior flooring that matches our 
interior floors without compromising on performance. 

High Technical Performance Benefits 

Porcelain pavers are unmatchable in performance characteristics when compared to conventional concrete and travertine pavers.

 

Sunlight does not fade their colors. They don’t stain or corrode. Porcelain pavers are highly resistance to wear, mechanical stress, chemicals, weather and they have built in anti-slip texture.

 

They are durable and waterproof, impervious to water and provide the appeal of a natural surface without having to worry about sealing or weathering. Porcelain pavers are also resistant to mold, moss and algae; making them a more practical alternative for pool decks.

 

2 cm porcelain pavers are the right solution for walkways, swimming pool decks, gardens, patios, terraces and driveways. Most collections include trims and accessories needed to meet outdoor design requirements; pool coping, drains and step treads.
