Metric and Rectified
Porcelain pavers sizes can be confusing to understand. Porcelain tiles are metric and rectified meaning they are trimmed square and a few mm shy of being the listed metric measure. Why? Porcelain tiles are made from natural clay and silicas that get pressed into a mold and fired in a kiln. During the process the tiles shrink to their finished size. There can be more than 1% variation among tiles. To eliminate this variation the tiles are rectified, meaning cut to an exact size and machine finished to create a perfectly square edge. This gives the tile a finished look and ensures the porcelain pavers are uniform in size and consistently square. For example, HDG Neros is 60x60cm rectified with actual dimension 595x595mm, 23 7/16 x 23 7/16″.
Porcelain Pavers Range in Size
Porcelain pavers range in size from large oversized formats to small squares. Typical sizes are 30×60 cm, 30×120 cm, 40×120 cm, 45×90 cm, 60×60 cm, 90×90 cm, 60×120 cm. Also available are planks and smaller squares and rectangles to create ashlar patterns. Some porcelain pavers series are available in a wide variety of sizes, e.g., HDG Penn Blue, whereas others may only be available in 60×60 cm.
