As the name suggests, the Athena range of porcelain tiles is inspired by classicism and the understated elegance of natural stone. These travertine effect tiles combine the stylish and desirable of natural travertine with the strength, resistance, and low maintenance of porcelain tiles. The end result is floor covering that creates a warming and calming atmosphere with natural looks, that requires none of the sealing or extensive cleaning of natural stone. These stunning stone effect tiles have a realistic silver-grey travertine effect, perfect for adding a natural look to patios, terraces, and outdoor areas. Our external porcelain tiles have a slip resistant surface which gives the tile a slightly rough texture.
Natural travertine is very porous stone with lots of holes found in its natural state. It requires maintenance and care to preserve and maintain its hardwearing properties. As well as the required sealing during installation, it will need to be resealed and holes refilled regularly to maintain its beauty. Not to mention, it is expensive to begin with. Our porcelain tiles are completely non-porous, requiring no sealing or filling. They are also harder and stronger than natural stone. Porcelain is a great choice for outdoor use as it is frost, fade, scratch and stain resistant. This means your tiles will look as good in 20 years as they do today. they are also more affordable to start with, making it a far most cost effective option for your outdoor tiles and paving slabs.
