Here at Landscaping Supplies Direct, we specialise in providing the highest quality vitrified porcelain paving from top brands. This type of paving slabs fall into a few different categories, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. Porcelain garden tiles are made from clay and quartz sand, and sintered at high temperatures with a very high purity clay. This results in a harder porcelain paving slab that is durable against adverse weather and high foot traffic. Vitrified paving slabs are ceramic tiles that have a lower rate of water absorption (less than 0.5%) due to the way in which the clay is used to form them. Vitrified paving is hard to scratch and forms an excellent patio surface.
Porcelain paving slabs hold many advantages over generic stone paving, as they are far more resilient to frost, thermal shock, heavy traffic, moss, mould and the adverse side effects of heavy duty cleaning products, salts and acids. Vitrified paving also boasts low moisture absorption which makes it far easier to clean, along with high anti-slip resistance and an ability to maintain its colour and characteristics, even after years of excessive use. Porcelain slabs guarantee a consistent thickness thanks to being man-made, and are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. We stock a wide range of vitrified porcelain paving slabs from world-renowned manufacturers such as Bradstone, Marshalls, Stonemarket and more, and can ship to all parts of the UK.
