With almost three times the breaking strength of 2cm porcelain pavers, but just 1/2″ thicker, Archatrak T30 (30mm thick) porcelain pavers enable exceptionally attractive and stylish outdoor paved areas to be laid in high traffic, commercial environments.
These heavy-duty commercial pavers feature the same stain resistance, wear resistance, fade resistance and frost resistance as 2cm porcelain pavers, but offer much superior resistance to breakage.
For pedestal supported elevated decks in high traffic commercial spaces such as rooftop bars and restaurants, roof terraces, patios, and other communal areas where maximum safety and resistance to break-through is paramount, T30 pavers are generally our preferred recommendation, especially if the extra cost of steel protection plates for T20 pavers may be an issue. To show you what we mean, we created this short youtube video to demonstrate all the challenges these heavy-duty pavers can withstand in a busy restaurant environment.
In locations where wind uplift mitigation must be considered, not only is the extra weight of T30 3cm porcelain pavers an advantage, but the extra thickness enables a strong hold-down system to be used. See here for further details.
For on-grade applications, including areas with vehicular traffic, T30 commercial pavers are capable of supporting wheel loadings of over six tons, so can be used on driveways and other areas with light to medium traffic, either mortar set or laid over a well-compacted sand/gravel foundation.
With this unique combination of excellent technical characteristics, a range of different sizes, and elegant color options, Archatrak T30 porcelain pavers offer an unmatched alternative to concrete or brick paving in public plazas, pedestrian walkways, shopping precincts, pavements, sidewalks, driveways, and other broad areas landscape paver projects.
All our T30 commercial pavers are currently imported from Italy. We stock a limited range in our MD warehouse. Apart from the colors shown below and on our paver colors page, we can supply T30 pavers in additional colors, typically with 8-12 weeks delivery time.
