Porcelain Paving Slabs are durable than natural stone.
Due to extremely high temperatures during the manufacturing process, porcelain paving slabs are extremely stronger, more durable and denser than natural stones. Because of their superior strength, they’re ideal for commercial areas with heavy traffic, and driveways.
Porcelain paving slabs are suitable for cold climates.
The outdoor porcelain paving slabs are frost tolerant. No matter how cold your winters are, freezing and thawing cycles won’t crack the surface.
Porcelain Paving slabs are not required maintenance.
Outdoor porcelain paving slabs have a non-porous surface so they’re nearly maintenance-free. Because they’re stain-resistant, you don’t need to worry about discolouration due to water, mould, or mildew. They also resist chipping, scratches, and furniture marks. In contrast to wood, there’s no need to worry about staining, sealing, termites, or splinters. Just hose them off with water occasionally, and that’s it.
