Choosing 2cm or 3cm Porcelain Pavers

HDG Building Materials gives architects, landscape architects and building professionals more choices when selecting structural porcelain pavers. Choosing 2cm or 3cm porcelain pavers depends largely upon your application requirements.

Exterior 2cm porcelain pavers are especially popular in luxury residential, commercial and municipal applications including: swimming pool surrounds, raised terraces, patios, gardens, rooftop decks, plazas, and pedestrian walkways.

The introduction of 3cm porcelain pavers opens up additional application possibilities including: parking lots, pads, garages, driveways, ramps, entrance areas, woonerfs, boulevards, and tracks of all types.

Whether you are designing a backyard oasis, paving a beautiful driveway, building a garage to house prized automobiles, or creating a large public plaza there is a porcelain paver to fit your project.
