Pave-or-Tile® is the innovative solution for all exterior flooring. Pave-or-Tile® is a 20mm thick porcelain tile designed specially for outdoor applications, and an ideal choice for pool surrounds, patio areas, courtyards, pathways, stepping stones, entertaining areas and steps.

Porcelain’s natural properties ensure fantastic stain resistance, low maintenance, frost resistance, slip resistance and high strength. Porcelain is also much lighter than stone / concrete-based alternatives. With three adaptive installation methods available, Pave-or-Tile® really is a versatile product.

Material Consideration – PLEASE READ PRIOR TO PURCHASE

Due to the nature of natural stone, it is expected that products will vary in appearance, colour, texture, grain, shape, size and markings. It is a good idea to blend tiles / pavers from all crates prior to laying. Products have an acceptable size tolerance of up to +/- 1mm, so it is important to incorporate a grout space when laying. It is the responsibility of the user to inspect the tiles / pavers prior to laying as claims will not be honoured after products have been installed. Excessive chipping, cracks or size variation may be eligible for claim. We recommend sealing product for greater stain protection.

 

Installation

Please be advised that the provided resources are to be used as a guide / tips only. You should consult relevant Australian Standards and consult with a licensed contractor. Please understand that installation may vary depending on site conditions. These guides are provided in good faith and do not replace the services of licensed contractors.

On Road Base and Sand

Step1. Excavate to area to be paved by at least 120mm below the desired height of finished tile. (This amount may change depending on site conditions application).
Step 2. Spread road base and compact with plate compactor to a depth of no less than 75mm. Ensure fall gradient of at least 2:100.
Step 3. Spread the coarse river sand to a depth of 25mm. Use screed and screed rail to ensure a level finish.
Step 4. Set string lines at right angles to ensure that the joint lines are straight and square.
Step 5. Begin to lay tiles, using string line as a guide. Ensure to leave a 3-5mm gap for joints. (Hint: use tile spacers to ensure consistency).
Step 6. Cut tiles with diamond blade saw as needed.
Step 7. Fill the joints. Use a polymer joint filling sand. Sweep sand in multiple directions until all joints are filled. Hose off when complete, ensuring not to wash sand out of the joints.

On Pedestals

Step 1. Prepare the concrete foundation to required specification. Ensure there is sufficient fall on existing slab.
Step 2. Set string lines to ensure joint lines are straight and square.
Step 3. Begin laying tiles on the pedestals. Adjust pedestals as required to keep a level surface with a slope of at least 1:100. Ensure tiles are tight and free from movement. We suggest a 3mm joint spacer should be used.
Step 4. Ensure all edges are securely restrained.

Note: We recommend to seek professional advice if laying tiles in this method. Pedestal height should be under 100mm. Be aware tiles may break and collapse if a heavy object falls from a height onto them.

Using Tile Adhesive

Step 1. Prepare the concrete foundation to required specifiaction. Ensure there is sufficient fall on existing slab. Ensure slab has been cleaned and free from any dirt or grease.
Step 2. Set string lines to ensure joint lines are straight and square.
Step 3. Use a high-quality tile adhesive. It should be flexible and suitable for exterior use. Allow for expansion joints as per Australian Standards.
Step 4. Use a 12mm notched trowel to apply adhesive to concrete foundation.
Step 5. Lay tiles using a 3-5mm joint spacing.
Step 6. Grout tiles when compete ensuring to thoroughly remove all excess grout before drying.

Note: Use should engage a professional tile when installing using this method.
