Quarry Tiles

Quarry tiles are versatile building materials used for a variety of purposes due to their durability and low water absorption. They are usually 12mm to 19 mm thick and are manufactured using the extrusion process from natural shales or clay. Quarry tiles are made from clay in a manner similar to the manufacture of bricks.

Quarry tiles can be used for fireplaces, hearths, internal flooring, outdoor flooring  and are also perfect for use with underfloor heating. We recommend applying a sealant to avoid staining in high traffic areas. 

Please note all quarry tiles have a maximum tolerance of +/- 2mm. Also note that due to the rustic handmade nature of the product, the manufacturer recommends a minimum 7mm grout joint.
