Product details

Discovery Paving Slabs

The Discovery range of Porcelain Paving is designed to meet the needs of larger gardens where the space demands paving that is larger, bolder and visually impressive to compliment that scale. 

These premium Italian porcelain paving slabs come in a 1200 x 600 x 20 mm format, and are available as both full packs and mini packs:

  • Full Pack (Qty 36 Paving Slabs / Coverage 25.92m²)
  • Mini Pack (Qty 8 Paving Slabs / Coverage 5.83m²)

The Pavestone Discovery range has four colours to choose, all available on Paving Direct:

R11 Anti-Slip Finish

Our exterior porcelain paving is R11 Anti-Slip finish rated, which means it typically has better slip-resistance than concrete or natural stone paving. There is a misconception that porcelain paving will be "slippy", but this is probably based on people perception of R9 tiles which are suitable for interior use only. R11 rated porcelain paving is designed and specified for exterior use in wet and dry conditions.

Vitrified Slabs (Non-porous)

Porcelain paving is vitrified, meaning it is an impermeable homogeneous material (non-porous). It is manufactured by firing kaolin clays and minerals in kilns at temperatures over 1200 °C where they fuse together into a very strong and durable product that is ideal for exterior paving. Because vitrified (literally "glass like") porcelain paving is non-porous, this means it does not suffer many of the issues associated with porous concrete and natural stone paving. Consequently porcelain paving offers superior performance in a number of areas.

Superior Performance

The benefits of porcelain paving mean that it provides superior performance in a number of key characteristics:

  • Waterproof - impermeable / non-porous.
  • Robust & durable - very, very strong homogeneous material.
  • Slip resistant - built-in ant-slip surface finish technology to provide R11 rated performance
  • Frost resistant - as it is impermeable, water and moisture do not enter the material and frost-action (freeze-thaw) erosion and damage is avoided.
  • Stain resistant - impermeable materials are less prone to staining as pigments and staining materials cannot enter capillaries and micro-fissures in the material or leave drying rings as internal liquid/moisture dries. Porcelain paving is also resistance to fats and oils, another cause of staining.
  • Scratch resistant - the hardness and strength of porcelain paving means it is less susceptible to scratches and abrasions.
  • Colour maintaining - the pigments used to print the patterns on the paving slabs are fixed with a UV protecting finish to prevent sun-bleaching (common with concrete and natural stone).
  • Acids & alkali resistant - porcelain paving is typically impervious to chemicals such as fertiliser and lawn treatments.
  • Moss & algae resistant - the impermeable nature of porcelain paving slabs means it makes it almost impossible for organisms and flora to take root or establish themselves on the paving's surface.
  • Low maintenance - the vitrified impermeable nature of porcelain paving mean it is much easier to clean and maintain than natural stone or concrete, and does not suffer many of their vulnerabilities. Washing down with your patio with soapy water once every six months is about as complicated as maintenance typically gets.

Laying Comments

Discovery paving slabs are large and heavy, so we suggest that two people lay the slabs.

Discovery paving has sawn straight edges that are perfectly vertical with respect to the surface. This is a result of precise machining so that each of the four sides will be at a 90° angle to the top and bottom faces of the slab.

As with all paving, it is essential to lay the paving by mixing the tiles from each of the packs that are to be laid. This ensures that the overall desired hue is achieved and evens out any slight colour discrepancies. Laying your patio one pallet at a time can lead to slight but visible colour banding.

It is essential to use a Slurry Primer, which should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying. The base mortar should contain an SBR Bond additive included within the mix. 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).

If you require any additional information on laying our Porcelain, please give us a call on 01993 608 824 and speak to our dedicated Paving Expert Team.
