What Makes our Porcelain Furniture a Better Choice

With a unique combination of excellent scratch resistance, frost resistance, slip resistance, fire resistance, fade resistance and very low maintenance, Archatrak’s porcelain furniture range provides an outstanding alternative to more traditional paving and patio flooring products including concrete, stone and wood.

Unlike most other paving materials including concrete, natural stone and wood, both the surface and body of porcelain cobblestone are non porous, so liquids, oils or chemical spills can’t penetrate. You can simply wipe or wash off any spills. Porcelain is even resistant to weak acids and bases.
Porcelain is an extremely hard and dense material which resists scratching and marking by most objects. The furniture can thus be used in areas subject to high foot traffic such as plaza decks, patio decks and where tables and chairs are in regular use, such as outdoor bars and restaurants.
Since water cannot penetrate the interior of porcelain, unlike more porous materials such as natural stone and concrete, they don’t suffer freeze/thaw cracking in sub zero conditions, making them suitable even for the most severe climatic locations.
Because of the the non-porous surface of porcelain, growth of mold and mildew is inhibited and if any mold should develop, it can be easily washed off with water.
The lightly textured surface, coupled with ultra-low porosity that enables quick water run off, means that outdoor porcelain furniture will meet most slip resistant requirements for both home and commercial use.
Since pigmentation is effectively baked into the pavers at temperatures above 1200°C, porcelain furniture will not suffer from fading in direct sunlight.
Porcelain furniture does not need applications of sealers or protective coatings nor any fixed schedule maintenance programs. Washing with water and maybe a stiff broom from time to time to remove dirt and organic matter (grass, soil, leaves etc.) is all that’s normally required to keep pavers in top condition.
Unlike wood planks or structural wood tiles, porcelain is completely fireproof, so can be used where strict fire regulations apply, such as on rooftops in densely populated urban regions.
Due to modern manufacturing methods and digital printing techniques, porcelain can be produced in an outstanding range of colors and styles, including colors that are virtually indistinguishable from natural stone, but with the added advantages of much superior stain resistance and freeze/thaw cracking resistance.
For the equivalent strength characteristics, porcelain is lighter (only 9 lbs per sq ft) than both concrete and stones, so are easier and less expensive to transport and move to the job site.
