Extend your home into your outdoor space

Bringing together elements of industrial concrete, with a highly contemporary architectural style, our Ardara porcelain paving provides a simple but stylish feel to any space.

  • Technically very strong and less prone to staining, algae and moss growth
  • Hard wearing and durable, with extremely low water absorption
  • Slip skid rated at R11 so it’s perfect for outdoor use
