Features and benefits of Armapave:
Our porcelain pavers have excellent slip-resistance qualities for assured support
underfoot. Each range has been scientifically tested for both shod foot and bare
foot conditions (DIN51130 & DIN51097) and found to offer excellent R11/C slip resistance.
While the Pendulum Test found rated the paving slab PTV(Wet) +36 (1 in 1million chance of slipping), offering assured support underfoot in wet conditions.
You can be confident you are getting the best surfaces for your patio, hot tub/pools surround and BBQ areas.
Because the hard surface of our porcelain pavers is virtually non-porous (less
than 0.05%) all spillages sit on the surface and do not soak in. During stain
resistance testing armapave received the highest rating of 5. This means
that, in most cases, all spillages can be washed and removed with clean, warm
armapave’s very low water absorption rate (less than 0.05%) significantly
reduces opportunities for moss and algae growth and provides you with longer
lasting, low maintenance, attractive outside spaces.
No Sealing Required
Our porcelain pavers are fired in a kiln (above 1200°C) until they reach a stage
of non-porous vitrification and complete water-proofing. The surface will not
absorb materials and sealing is not required.
Abrasion & Deep Scratch Resistant
In internationally used deep abrasion testing methods (EN ISO 10545-6)
armapave performed exceptionally well. It’s compact, hard, non-porous body
has also been tested for its resistance to wear caused by heavy foot traffic and
rubber wheeled vehicles (EN ISO 10545-7). Each porcelain paver in the
armapave range is found to have the highest rating (PEI V) and suitable for
heavy traffic areas.
Strong, Robust Material
Our porcelain pavers are dense, strong materials designed to withstand heavy
loads and continuous use without compromising the surface or finish. They are
ideal for making your garden an extension of your home by creating a
decorative extra room for entertaining and socialising.
Frost Proof & Salt Resistant
armapave porcelain pavers are highly frost resistant due to their strong dense
nature and low water absorbency characteristics. They are the perfect alternative
to porous materials, such as concrete pavers, which absorb water and salts that
can cause efflorescence and may damage both the structure and surfaces by
splintering, crazing or fractures.
The armapave Collection is UV resistant to fading in all weathers and strong
sunlight conditions. The manufacturing process of firing the pavers at
1200°Celcius effectively locks in the finished surfaces to produce a product
with exceptional durability and reduces the potential for fading over time.
Our porcelain pavers are Classified A1 of Reaction to Fire (BS EN13501-1). They
are completely resistant to fire and the surface spread of flame. They will not
contribute to any phase of a fire including a full developed one
