    Product watch: Parkside Tiles and the great outdoors

    Parkside Architecture Tiles has updated its outdoor tile portfolio, expanding its popular Vista20 line. Let’s take a cheeky look…

    Providing tiles suitable for external use, Parkside’s outdoor tiles portfolio has been updated to include even more options for specifiers and designers looking to bring the indoors out.

    With brand-new granite, travertine, concrete, marble and terrazzo effects, as well as expanded wood and slate looks, Vista20 provides a wide choice of 20mm thick, vitrified porcelain slabs for the authentic look of natural materials without the maintenance. Hard wearing, frost, mould and stain resistant, the Vista20 collection comes with a high slip-resistance of PTV 36+ barefoot, making the tiles suitable for year-round use. With selected designs available as 10mm options, Vista20 allows a seamless flow from indoors out.

    All stone and marble designs in the Vista40 collection are available in indoor (10mm) and outdoor (40mm) versions. The 40mm outdoor versions feature a 30mm Serafoam layer, for a lightweight 600 x 600mm PTV 36+ barefoot tile that eliminates the need for a concrete base layer, making installation simpler and possible in almost all conditions. Both Vista20 and Vista40 are stocked in the UK for fast despatch.

    The outdoor tile portfolio also includes Dawson, available in a range of sizes up to an impressive 1200 x 2400mm. In four colours, Dawson is a contemporary concrete effect 20mm tile that’s also available in 10mm for indoor use, bringing an elegant transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. The textured finish adds authenticity with the Smoke and Tarmac colours featuring 20 per cent – 40 per cent recycled content.

    Parkside also offers a full range of supporting outdoor installation accessories including pedestals, trims and outdoor-ready easy brush-in grout. Some of the collection’s 20mm thick tiles can also be installed with Parkside’s exclusive QuiKer system, an ideal solution for pub and restaurant terraces. This steel backing plate provides a higher impact resistance and can be installed directly onto pedestals.

    The outdoor tile portfolio is also home to steel pedestals, for external wall systems as well as balconies on high-rise buildings. Parkside’s flat head pedestals are available in flat head adjustable heights (eight options) and slope corrector with adjustable heights (six options), and are compliant with A2-s1, d0 rated or Class A1 under BS EN 13501-1.

    The outdoor tile portfolio is reviewed in a new brochure that’s now available from the trusted tile specification company.
