The EMPEROR® Oak porcelain tile creates the effect of authentic seasoned timber flooring. Unlike real timber, when used outdoors this paving will avoid fading and weathering, and so will maintain its appearance from your living spaces out into the garden.
Country of origin: Italy
Unlike other porcelain floor tiles, EMPEROR floor tiles have a slightly conical edge – their ‘natural edge’.
This offers two key benefits:
Looks:- Once laid, EMPEROR floor tiles look just like natural stone and are clearly different from ceramic floor tiles with calibrated edges.
Resistance to wear:- Their slanting edges give EMPEROR floor tiles extra stability, making them more resistant to cracking and damage to the edges.
Repeats: The number of repeats of a pattern within a product depends on how lively the pattern is. Our porcelain will vary from 22 repeats in more lively tiles down to 4 in plainer products

Is this product hard wearing?
Our porcelain paving have a hard surface and are easy to clean. Unlike natural stone, these porcelain products do not require sealing or specific cleaning products. Even spots of grease or red wine can be easily cleaned away. They can be cleaned with just water and a soft scrubbing brush.
Are these products slippery?
All Emperor range floor tiles have a slip safety rating of at least 11 which means the products have been tested in various wet and dry conditions and have proven to be very low risk of slipping.
What is porcelain?
Our porcelain is produced from low line clays, quartz and feldspar (minerals) which are shaped by dry pressing and then fired at very high temperatures. This results in a highly durable material with a low level absorption (spillages don’t soak in).
Can I use under floor heating?
Yes you can. The heat will transfer through the porcelain, it will take a little longer to heat up but holds the heat well much like stone.
