Gravel or Sand Installation
Dry installation onto gravel or sand is an excellent option where water permeability must be retained and installation of a slab is not an option. This method can be used in both private and public spaces and uses traditional landscape paving methodologies. “It is recommended that you consult with a professional landscaper or engineer to accurately calculate the thickness of the following layers according to the intended use and stressing loads.”
Excavate the area to be paved and level the substrate making sure you leave at least a 2% slope across the area.
The original 20mm paver design emanated from the need to repair and maintain roof-top balconies and exposed internal deck and patio areas whilst retaining the benefits of porcelain tile. As time has progressed, many national council regulations also now require these elevated deck jack systems on any area above ground level over existing floors and building spaces. These elevated deck jacks allow the tile surface to float above the substrate below and enable access to cabling, plumbing or waterproofing at any point with ease.
20mm thick porcelain tiles can be laid directly onto grass. Ideally each tile needs to be laid flat with no gaps beneath it and slightly lower than the surface of the grass for ease of mowing. The ideal installation method would involve the following: 4-8mm fine gravel, trowel, soft mallet hammer
Direct adhesion remains a popular and recommended option in high or heavy transit spaces. The ideal laying solution for outdoor driveways, car parks, garage ramps, as the laid surface is extremely resistant to both dynamic and concentrated loads. Expansion joints are recommended, and the gaps between the tiles must be filled with a cement-based grout.
