Porcel-Thin exterior porcelain tiles: The new skin for architecture
The British weather can be changeable at best. One day you're basking in 30 degree sunshine, the next you're dodging hailstones the size of golf balls. When considering materials for exterior applications you need something which can stand up to the very worst that the weather can throw at it, whilst still doing its job, AND looking great.
Porcel-Thin's range of attractive, hardwearing outdoor porcelain tiles is the answer, you're looking for.
Using only the highest quality materials and a unique pressed manufacturing method, Porcel-Thin's range of exterior porcelain tiles are both exceptionally strong and dense. It is this compact structure which provides them with a high resistance to both ambient moisture and direct assault by water. Whilst ordinary porcelain tiles typically display an absorption rate of 2%-3%, Porcel-Thin's outdoor porcelain tiles absorb barely 0.5% - making them though enough to withstand even the hardest frosts.
