The same tile Inside and Outside

Outside-Inside porcelain tiles offer two options,the INSIDE (Natural) range of tiles and the OUTSIDE(Grip) 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.The 10mm thick tiles are suitable for underfloor heating.

Why use porcelain tiles outside?   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.Unlike natural stone and timber, porcelain tiles are non porous so they do not require sealing and require minimal maintenance.

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.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.Download PDF data document

Inside-Outside Porcelain Tiles 10mm thick

Outside-Inside Porcelain Tiles A growing trend is sliding or bi-fold doors from the kitchen and living area onto the patio.Outside-inside porcelain tiles offer the option of the same tile flowing from the inside onto the patio and gives a remarkable feeling of space.Outside-inside porcelain tiles are available in two finishes natural or polished for the inside and then a GRIP finish for outside.Outside 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 and offers considerable cost savings.

10mm thick outside porcelain tiles should be laid on a concrete base.The golden rule is site preparation,it’s well worth preparing the outside concrete base properly to ensure future durability.If you have a technical question call our helpline 0121 784 6800.
