Product Information


Heartwood Porcelain paving by Bradstone is an exceptional outdoor flooring option that combines the timeless beauty of natural wood with the remarkable durability and low maintenance of porcelain. Designed to mimic the texture and appearance of real wood, Heartwood Porcelain paving brings a warm and inviting aesthetic to gardens, patios, and other outdoor spaces.

One of the standout features of Heartwood Porcelain paving is its resilience. Porcelain is highly resistant to wear, stains, and weather extremes, making it a robust choice for areas with heavy foot traffic and varying climates. Its non-porous nature prevents water absorption, safeguarding the paving against frost damage and reducing the risk of moss and algae growth. This ensures that the paving retains its attractive appearance with minimal upkeep.

The manufacturing precision of Heartwood Porcelain paving guarantees consistent sizing and thickness, which simplifies the installation process and ensures a uniform, professional finish. Additionally, the paving is slip-resistant, enhancing safety in wet conditions, making it ideal for use around pools, on pathways, and in other high-traffic areas.

Ultimately, Bradstone's Heartwood Porcelain paving offers the aesthetic charm of natural wood combined with the practical benefits of porcelain. Its durability, low maintenance, and realistic wood-like appearance make it an excellent choice for homeowners looking to enhance their outdoor spaces with a stylish and long-lasting paving solution.


Useful Information

Porcelain paving

Manufactured from the finest raw materials, under strict controls allows us to obtain the exceptional technical characteristics which sets porcelain paving apart.
Anti-slip surface resistance
• All porcelain paving = R11

We recommend Progrout Flexible for pointing. Do not use white cement nor materials containing black pigments.
Finishes are intentionally manufactured with slightly uneven colour tones and surface decoration, these subtle variations set these products apart.
The use of a slurry primer to the reverse of each paver is both essential and more importantly critical to the overall performance of Bradstone porcelain paving.

We recommend the use of Bradstone Bradbond for this.
Apply as per instructions given on the tub. Applied to the underside using a stiff brush, it provides an exceptional bond between paver and the full wet bed underneath.
Mixed to manufacturer’s instructions and applied with care it forms an immediate bond which prevents the pavers from lifting or potentially moving in the future when correctly laid.

Bradstone porcelain paving can be cut on site and mostly to any size. We recommend the use of a portable saw (table saw, petrol driven disc cutter, rechargeable angle grinder) fitted with a good quality diamond porcelain blade. The blade should be water fed for dust suppression and to keep the blade cool. Scoring the product first and sawing from the face downwards will help to alleviate the potential risk of edge/surface chipping.

Bradstone porcelain paving can be cleaned by applying a suitable cleaner. We strongly recommend the finished laid area be thoroughly cleaned/washed down which helps
remove general building dirt, grout residue and any grease deposits that may be present. It is also recommended that periodic cleaning with a porcelain cleaner will help to keep the paving looking its best.
Dependent on the type of stain/surface residue present (i.e. suction marks, grease, grout, general building site dirt,) there is a wide range of off the shelf specialist cleaners
available. Always check the manufacturer’s instructions first before applying to any test area.


When laying any porcelain paving over 800mm, remember to only stagger the paving to a maximum of 33% of the length:

Joint widths should still be at least 5mm. Using spacers will help to achieve uniform joints

Slurry Primer

The British Standard recommends that a slurry primer (should as Bradbond) should be applied to the underside of all paving prior to laying to improve adhesion

Differential Weathering

Differential weathering can cause patchy dark discolourations on the surface of individual units. Again this will generally diminish over time and will not affect long term
performance. This is due to differential weathering where the surface of the paving has cured at different rates. All decorative products will weather and change appearance
over time.


Efflorescence can appear on all paving products as white patches or a lightening of the surface colour, but seems to disappear when wet.
It is formed by a normal chemical reaction which causes calcium hydroxide (lime) to migrate through the damp paving surface and then react with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting in a deposit of calcium carbonate crystals. Efflorescence is very unpredictable in its occurrence and can happen at any time of the year but is more prevalent in winter.

Although there are cleaners available, efflorescence is a natural phenomenon and will generally disappear with the natural weathering process and the passage of time. It does not compromise the integrity of the paving. Aggregate Industries cannot accept responsibility for the effect of efflorescence which can be a characteristic of all good quality products with a high cement content.
