First, let's make it clear what “paving” and “outdoor” tiles are. Well, although the simple answer would be, tiles that can be used outdoors, the technical information is quite important to ensure you get the most suitable stones for your home environment. To ensure durability during the changes of the seasons over a year, the industry-standard thickness recommendations for external pavings are 30mm in its thickness, this thickness performs best during the changes in temperature and weather conditions throughout the year for any type of installation. It is possible to use lesser thickness tiles however, we do not recommend any less thickness than 20mm for a natural product (man-made porcelain tiles can have different specifications and be more suitable with varying thicknesses)
We also recommend the installation to be carried out by a professional and tiles to be sealed before use.
