Spectrum Quartzite Porcelain Paving
Spectrum Tiles are a unique and versatile Porcelain Paving supplier that boasts a vast range of extravagant and one-of-a-kind Porcelain Paving for your garden.
Spectrum patio slabs have been specifically developed to be longer-lasting and much stronger, with a stronger safeguard against absorption - this means that you are not required to maintain it very much and do not need to seal it.
Several qualities make the Spectrum pavers impressive. They are resistant to scratches, stains and mildews, these qualities in turn will enable you to clean up any spillages that may occur. To reassure you further these paving slabs have a skid value ranging from R-10 to R12 - with R-12 being commercially approved for safety.
Quartzite Grey Porcelain Paving for Your Garden
2 colours are part of the Spectrum Quartzite range: The Quartzite White and the Quartzite Grey. Even though they seem smooth and irregular when wet upon first glance, if you inspect the slabs carefully you will notice that they are slightly textured on the surface. The slightly riven texture means that they have a much better grip, and as we mentioned earlier, these slabs are non-slip, which means that they are a great option for poolside paving.
If you look at the Quartzite slabs carefully, you will notice that amongst the beautiful colours they have a marble effect spread through each slab. Quartzite Grey which boasts multiple shades of grey with scatterings of white and silver will give your garden and patio a modern and elegant atmosphere and vibe. With the shining white streaks amongst the grey, your pavers will look beautiful no matter the season.
A great advantage of Spectrum Porcelain slabs is that they work great both indoors and outdoors. You will be able to create a smooth and uniform look if you wish to decorate both your garden and your indoor floors with the same Porcelain Paving slabs

Instructions on How to Lay Porcelain Paving
To make certain that your garden patio has a long life and will look fresh for the foreseeable future, we strongly suggest that you hire a professional Landscaper to lay these slabs for you.
However, if you feel that you are adept and confident and are looking for a project, then we urge you to carefully read through our guide on how to install paving in your garden.
Before starting anything, you must make a plan and create a blueprint for where exactly you want the patios to be installed. This step is made simpler if you are using single-sized paving slabs, as all you have to do is put them in the formation you desire. A formation that is commonly used is referred to as the offset bring pattern.
Once you have figured out where you want your slabs, carefully mark the area with either string or spray paint. If you want to be extra precise you should use an angle measure to make sure that all your lines are straight. Once everything has been properly marked, proceed with the digging process. Dig within the marked area so that there is enough space for 100mm of sub-base. 25mm of sharp sand/cement and the paving depth. We would suggest you use a spirit level to ensure that the ground is as level as possible.
Once you have dug through the area add into it MOT Type 1 limestone at a 50mm depth and go through with a rake for an even and level distribution. utilise a Wacker Plate (which you can hire) to compact the hardcore into the area.
Proceed by adding 25mm later of a full mortar bed over the hardcore base by using either washed grit and cement or sand and cement. This is an essential step in the process, if you skip this your paving slabs will NOT be secure. Once that is complete, distributing water via a watering can make the surface damp until it has enough moisture, and then rake over it again.
Once these steps are complete, you will be able to lay your paving. As we have stated above, please be very careful when laying these slabs, and if you can lay them at a 1/60 angle as this aids with drainage should heavy rain occur. We also want to remind you that you need to wear heavy-duty gloves throughout this entire process.
Use a slurry or compound and spread it through the back of the slabs before you lay them into the sand/cement. Start with installing the first slabs at the peak point of your patio, going from corner to corner. This is an important step as placing the first slab currently determines the rest of the project, so make sure to check that all the angles and levels are correct.
KEEP IN MIND You must remember to leave at least a 3 - 6mm gap between each slab for Porcelain Paving and a 10 -12mm gap for Sandstone and Limestone Paving to have space for the jointing in between. Also, make sure to remember that you should seal the back of sawn products to avoid mirroring.
Allow the Sharp Sand/ Cement to dry. It must dry slowly, if rain is forecasted, use a large plastic sheet to protect it.
Once the sand/cement has completely dried, it is time to join the pavers together. At Stone was have the relevant products you need to get the best results. We suggest either VillaFix Porcelain & Stone Grout or our new Azpects EasyJoint Select. if you want to make your own that is also possible as we also supply mortar mix; it’s easy to remember 4 parts sand to 1 part cement.
It is best practice to leave the jointing grout for 24 hours to set and after that time limit has passed you should be able to safely walk over it and enjoy your new garden patio!
