can these tiles be laid over other tile?
Can they be laid over pavers on road base or
can they be laid on the road base after the pavers have been lifted?
These tiles can be laid over existing tiles as long as the tiles being laid on are even and flat, these can not be laid over pavers that have been laid on road base as a road base at times is uneven and if there is any moment this particular tile could crack, so only lay these on a concrete slab or on exciting tiles at are flat and even.

Hi Guys, What is the thickness of this tile? thanks
Hi there, thanks for your enquiry. These tiles are approximately 9mm thick.
Can these tiles be used over sprayed concrete without screeding. Patio is quite level, but we cannot go much higher than the tile and would prefer not to screed. Will it stick? The area has had a sealer on it, but has worn off in most places, and only a few unused places does water still stay on top (like on a waxed car), it mostly drains off now. Being sprayed concrete it has a rough surface that hopefully the glue could stick?
Hi there, thanks for your enquiry. To get the glue to stick, we recommend that the area be gurney’d to clean the floor, then use a primer on the cleaned surface and apply the adhesive over the primer. If you need any further information, please give our office a call on (02) 8728 7800 and speak with Gino or Linley.
Some tilers that we had quote think that it would require screeding due to the length of the tile in the fact that it sort of has a ‘bow’ in it. What do you think? Thanks
Hi there, thanks for your enquiry. Generally, screeding is recommended if your substrate is not level. It is common for longer tiles to have a slight bow, however, using a self levelling clip system while laying prevents any lipping issues. This type of system does not have to be used over screed if the substrate is level. For further information please give our office a call on (02) 8728 7800 and speak with Gino or Linley.

can this product be used in shower area like bathroom?
Hi there. Yes these tiles can be used in bathrooms, however being an anti-slip surface, they could be hard to clean. Therefore, you may prefer the soft brown Italian timber look porcelain tiles as they are smoother on the surface.
