Slab paving

Slab paving is commonly used in outdoor contexts – urban and residential – and it consists of both irregular porphyry slabs, as in the case of our Palladium Opus Incertum, and regular porphyry tiles, as in the case of our Palladium Roma (tiles with natural cleft surface with split sides) and Palladium Plus (tiles with natural cleft surface and sawn sides).

These are the different setting patterns:
– flagstone, which is laid without a pre-established setting pattern;
– parallel rows using elements all with at least one or two sides the same and aligned joints;
– parallel rows using elements all with at least one side the same and staggered joints;
– parallel rows using elements of different sizes and staggered joints;
– random and “Roman” setting pattern with both aligned and staggered joints. 

Slab paving is characterized by colours too: thanks to its shades, porphyry makes every place in which it is laid unique and exclusive.

Porfidi S.r.l. suggests the following outdoor setting patterns for slab paving.

 

Porfidi - Natural, international

PALLADIUM OPUS INCERTUM

Irregular porphyry slabs with natural cleft surface. Their thickness varies according to the selection and it is therefore possible to create different kinds of paving.

Porfidi - Natural, international

PALLADIUM ROMA

Rectangular-shaped tiles with natural cleft surface, and split and slightly beveled edges.

Porfidi - Natural, international

PALLADIUM PLUS

Rectangular-shaped tiles with natural cleft surface, sawn edges, sharp-cut corners, and edges perpendicular to the plane.

Porfidi - Natural, international

STARDUST

Selected slabs with regular thickness and flamed surface, suitable for outdoor paving and for the production of contoured shape finishings, steps, and windowsills.

The gallery shows some works in which our porphyry plays the main role with its colours and the way it is laid in outdoor urban contexts. Paved according to both the tradition and the expertise of Porfidi S.r.l., it looks rough and yet exclusively modern.
