Slab tiles have a maximum visual impact with a minimal profile. They use various technologies to achieve their slender depth; from a minimum 3.5mm to maximum 6mm creating ceramic skins for exteriors and interiors.
Slab tiles are huge!
Only tiles that are 800x1600mm or bigger are worthy of being called slab tiles. Anything below that size is large format or a standard size.
With super slim profiles made possible by new technologies, cutting and handling these huge tiles is easier and faster than you would imagine, offering substantial financial savings in projects. Their profile of just 3.5mm – incredible for the sheer size of these tiles - makes them one of the lightest façade coverings available and recommended for ventilated facades.
They are also eco-friendly, consuming less raw quarry materials than other types of porcelain tiles and are fired in a hybrid kiln that requires less energy to produce. They can also be produced with recycled materials, using the precious resources we already have.
For facades and external cladding our slab tiles provide any project with innovative construction solutions. With their large size, slab tiles can be installed as facades in fewer steps. We're hard pressed to find a better, quicker flooring option for living room renovations either.
The slim lines and mechanical strength make of slab tiles make them perfect for decorative feature walls, a streamlined look for floors, and even a porcelain veneer for furniture. Slab tiles offer a seamless solution for cladding kitchen countertops, islands or bathrooms. They also save time in renovation projects with the ability to tile over existing floors.
Strong and Durable
Just because they are thinner than normal tiles doesn’t mean that they don’t have the high physical strength to stand up to scratching, wear and tear, or even rapid changes in temperature. Slab tiles inherit all the core qualities from their ceramic and porcelain cousins. UV light will not fade them, and chemicals won’t challenge their integrity.
With the same incredible beauty of natural slabs of stone, it’s difficult not to be wowed by their scale. The technological capabilities of the manufacturing process is beyond imagination, achieving intricate stone veining, exposed aggregate concrete or terrazzo, and dramatic book matched marble.
Tiles are made from natural raw materials, which make them completely safe with no toxic resins, chemical binders or VOC gases.
The benefits of a slab tile start to become crystal clear when you measure up your bathroom and discover you will only need 2- 3 tiles across one wall. That’s only 2 grout joints! Cleaning suddenly becomes the easiest job of the week. Add this to the normal easy upkeep of a porcelain tiles, which are naturally mould and stain resistant. Then sit back and enjoy just how little care and cleaning tiles need.
