A trend taking the world by storm in both public and private projects, deactivated concrete cannot compete with the look and high-tech performance of the 20 mm porcelain tiles from Small Size.
The exteriors of private homes, as well as public areas with a large influx of people and road traffic, need to have high resistance flooring, low maintenance and with a high non-slip capacity to be completely safe and functional.
Deactivated concrete and 20 mm porcelain tiles stand as the preferred options when tackling this type of project.
The technical and aesthetic advantages of porcelain tiles are such that the decision to use these or deactivated concrete is a simple one.
PORCELAIN TILES ARE MORE LONG-LASTING THAN DEACTIVATED CONCRETE
One of the great differences of the 20 mm porcelain is its inalterability over time. While deactivated concrete visually deteriorates much more quickly, it is easily scratched by any blow and cracks with changes in temperature, the porcelain floors retain their original appearance over time, in addition to keeping intact its high technical performance, such as sudden changes in temperature, resistance to breakage, resistance to bending, resistance to stains, resistance to chemical products, fire resistance, etc.
PORCELAIN TILES REQUIRE NO MAINTENANCE
Maintenance requirements in urban and public spaces is an essential characteristic to consider when opting for one material over another.
Deactivated concrete needs increased maintenance given that it cannot be cleaned with chemical products and, when performed regularly and in a prolonged fashion, simple high-pressure water cleaning methods damage the surface texture and lead to material deterioration in a very short time.
On the other hand, 20 mm Small Size porcelain tiles can be cleaned with just water and can also withstand any cleaning product, acids and high-pressure water machines.
GREATER TECHNICAL FUNCTIONALITY OF PORCELAIN TILES
On the other hand, the ease of installation in construction sites, where we achieve a performance of between 35 and 40 m2 / day, its perfect adaptation on ramps, sidewalks or changes in level, its resistance to breakage and bending, its high level of anti-slip and not needing to apply treatments after installation, choose the 20mm porcelain tile Small Size versus deactivated concrete. Likewise, the availability of small formats, such as 20x20cm and 20x30cm, allows easy handling of the product and a large number of different placement patterns, being able to personalising any architectural project.
Another advantage of porcelain tiles over deactivated concrete becomes evident during replacement.
Whenever material needs to be replaced following maintenance tasks or when enlarging an area, the difference is hardly noticeable with 20 mm Small Size porcelain tiles whereas it is entirely impossible with deactivated concrete because it is made of cement, aggregate and water.
