Product Summary

Amalfi Beige Porcelain Paving Slabs are outdoor garden tiles in a 900 x 600 x 20 mm format with an R11 anti-slip rating suitable for British gardens.

The Amalfi Beige colouring is a light buff/wheat colour with cream, gold and white highlight elements. They are in a stone-effect pattern, and designed to emulate the appearance of polished dolomite limestone as found along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. They incorporate clastic elements in the design, along with veining and small fissure lines, as one would expect in this type of rock.

Their elegance and beauty will elevate your garden patio area, bringing a smart, contemporary, yet natural looking aesthetic to the space.

Key features

  • Contemporary Styling - the polished stone-effect, straight edges and smooth surface of these slabs gives them a clean, contemporary look and feel.
  • Durable - robust, durable, vitrified technology. Porcelain paving is scratch, abrasion resistant and fade resistant
  • Resilient - Porcelain paving is almost impermeable, making it frost resistant, stain-resistant and waterproof
  • Low Maintenance - Once a year 1) sweep 2) apply soapy water 3) scrub the tiles 4) leave to dry, it's that easy
  • Non-porous - the vitrified tiles are easy to clean and hygienic

Product details

Amalfi Porcelain Paving Range

Inspired by the natural Dolomite limestone of the Italian Amalfi Coast, this 900 x 600 mm stone-effect porcelain paving range is available in three colours:

  • Amalfi Anthracite (Dark Grey)
  • Amalfi Gris (Grey)
  • Amalfi Beige (Light Buff)

Amalfi outdoor tiles are designed to provide a polished stone-effect appearance that shows off the best attributes of natural stone. This results in a beautiful and refined paving surface for your patio or terrace, with clean, graceful lines that show off the elegant characteristics and aesthetics of natural stone.

Stone-Effect Finish & Pattern

Amalfi Porcelain Paving has the appearance of polished Dolomite limestone and Quartzite. The pattern includes clastic elements and bedding veins and fissure, which all lend themselves to giving this high-performance porcelain paving the appearance of polished natural stone.

Size Formats

Amalfi Porcelain Paving is available in one size option:

  • 900 x 600 x 20 mm

900 x 600 mm Porcelain Paving

The mid-size format of these 900 x 600 mm paving slabs offers you a few advantages. Firstly, they are well suited to more open and larger areas, where they size means they are not lost or minimalised in the space. Therefore, they can make the appropriate visual statement as they have a bit more gravitas, offering a beautiful surface aesthetic for your patio or terrace.

Secondly, their size allows for more efficient installation, covering more area with each slab as they are laid, but still possible to be handled and manipulated by a single person.

Both these factors, combined, explain the popularity of the 900 x 600 paving slab format and why it is still the most popular size of paving.

Outdoor Garden Tiles

Porcelain paving is specifically designed for outdoor use and has an R11 anti-slip rating, meaning it generally has better slip-resistance than natural stone or concrete paving products. Porcelain paving is also waterproof and non-porous, so dirt, grime and stains cannot penetrate the paving and can be easily washed off. Likewise, moisture and chemical solutions cannot penetrate the material, so frost damage and chemical erosion within the structure of the material do not occur.

These porcelain slabs can be used for a range of garden hard landscaping applications, as paving, coping and seating:

Garden Patio / Terrace Paving - these slabs are ideal for patio paving and creating different paved terraces in gardens with elevation. For patios and terraces, a stretcher bond is typically used as the laying pattern with 2:3 ratio paving, such as 900 x 600 slabs.

Pathways / Stepping Stones - these slabs can be used for garden paths and to create stepping stones routes through the garden. Their size format means there may be more groundwork required to help them conform to the topography when creating a path, as they are a little bigger.

Steps - where you have changes in elevation, and you want to link your paved terraces/patios, then these slabs can be used to create your steps. You made need to cut them down depending on the depth of your treads.

Coping - these slabs can be laid on top of retaining walls, low walls, half-walls, parapets, dwarf walls, pony walls and knee walls as coping. This will often also create seating around the garden. In higher walls, consider a rebate or nook using a slab to create an alcove/recess seat.

Benefits of Porcelain Paving

Porcelain Paving has many advantages over standard natural quarried stones or concrete paving. These include the following:

  • Super strong & durable
  • Easy to clean
  • No need to seal
  • Easier maintenance
  • Frost resistant
  • Algae resistant
  • Non-Porous (Waterproof)
  • Better slip resistance
  • Scratch and abrasion-resistant
  • Consistent colouration
  • Fade-resistant

Porcelain Paving vs Natural Stone Paving

Porcelain paving ticks all the boxes. The material quality, improved performance characteristics, extended longevity, and lower maintenance/upkeep of porcelain paving significantly lowers lifetime-costs for any garden patio paving when compared to natural stone or concrete paving.

Porcelain will outlive all other types of stone, which will save you money in the long run; especially as typically, the slabs only account for 20-30% of the initial cost of laying a new patio installation. If kept well maintained, your porcelain patio will still look brand new in 10 years time.  You simply can’t put a price on slabs of this quality when looking at the long-term (10 years plus) solution for your garden. Because porcelain exterior tiles are vitrified (glass-like) and the material is a solid homogeneous slab, it is waterproof and impervious. This means that dirt and grime, algae and lichen cannot penetrate and get in the material of these paving slabs. This makes keeping them clean and maintaining them much easier. Simply brush off leaves and detritus and wash with warm soapy water.

Laying Porcelain Slabs

Porcelain paving uses printed designs on the surface of the slab to create the patterns. Each pack will typically contain a variety of tile designs to ensure sufficient visual variation when you lay them. To ensure you do not lay matching patterns adjacent to one another and to ensure the blend/mix looks more varied, we advise inspecting the slabs prior to installation and determining your laying pattern. This ensures that the overall desired hue/pattern is achieved and evens out any slight colour discrepancies when laying more than one pack. Laying your patio one pallet at a time can lead to slight but visible colour banding.

Porcelain paving is non-porous and, therefore, requires a Slurry Primer to ensure it bonds properly with the bedding mortar. The priming slurry should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying. Please refer to the laying instructions if in any doubt.

A flexible Jointing Grout should be used, and care must be taken not to let it dry on the surface of the tile. We recommend applying a protective sealant to your porcelain tiles to help prevent marking from grout residue (Porcelain Tile Protector).

To install and lay porcelain patio paving slabs, you'll need to do the following steps:

  1. Measure up and mark out your patio - ensure you calculate both 1) area in square metres (m2)  and 2) the fall (slope) required for drainage.
  2. Dig out the patio area to create the substrate (220 -230 mm depth).
  3. Lay the sub-base of MOT Type-1 hardcore (compacted & 150 mm depth).
  4. Coat the slabs' underside with priming slurry to ensure their bond. As porcelain is non-porous, priming slurry is essential to ensure you are able to successfully bond the slabs to the bedding mortar.
  5. Trowel-in and lay a bedding course of mortar mix (50 mm depth) immediately prior to laying each slab.
  6. Lay the paving slabs on to the mortar bed and tamp down. Ensure you leave the desired joint spacing between the slabs and the slabs are “level” to the fall.
  7. Leave to set for 24 hours, so the mortar mix can cure enough for you to walk on the slabs.
  8. Grout the joints between the paving (pointing) with exterior tile grout. We would advise using Pavestone Porcelain Tile Protector to make removing grout residue easier.

To calculate the areas of paving in square-metres (m2), the amount of sub-base hardcore or the amount of sand and cement you'll need for the mortar mix bedding course, please refer to our paving calculators.

Care & Maintenance

Because porcelain paving is non-porous, many of the issues that arise with concrete and natural stone paving, do not occur with porcelain outdoor tiles. Walked-on dirt and grime and washed-on soluble grime and dirt are almost guaranteed on every patio. With porcelain paving slabs, this dirt and grime is largely superficial and sitting on the surface, as it cannot penetrate the vitrified homogeneous porcelain tile. Therefore, most of this build up of grime can be dealt with by brushing down your porcelain patio with yard brush and warm soapy water, and rinsing off with a garden hose.

There will inevitably be windblown or falling detritus and organic material such as leaves, twigs, nuts, seeds and grass cuttings that come to settle on your patio. These can transfer a contact stain when they are wet/damp of natural tannin pigments (akin to a tea stain) that will leave brown marks on your slab. Obviously, the first solution is to regularly sweep off any organic material that settles on your porcelain patio. However, should the paving become stained with tannins, then Pavestone Porcelain Patio Cleaner is recommended to help remove these blemishes.
