Whether you’re contemplating an industrial style makeover that will bring exposed brick and pipework to the fore, together with stainless steel finishes, concrete, wood and vintage furniture, or you’re simply looking to create the illusion of space; Doblo can help. Available in two large format size variants, Doblo Rock Porcelain tiles are great for showcasing neutral tones and utilitarian design.
Large format tiles save you a lot of time during installation as you’ll use less tiles and therefore less time is spent cutting and laying. Doblo Rock Porcelain tiles come in 598 x 598 and 298 x 598 size variants, all of which have a PEI rating of 5 making them perfect for use in kitchens, hallways, bathrooms, commercial environments, even outside. Using a pale colour variant will visually expand any space, making it look larger than it is. Utilise a grout that's similar in colour to minimise grout lines that disrupt the eye, making your space feel even bigger.

Would you recommend this tile for a wet room. For a disabled person.
Our advice: We would advise opting for an anti-slip rating of R11 or higher.
Hi, what's your recommended joint width for these tiles? Thanks
Our advice: We would recommend a minimum of a 2 mm grout joint.
Can you confirm if these tiles require sealing? If so what is recommended.
Our advice: These tiles do not need sealing
Hi there. We have received a sample and the tile looks great. We wanted it for a patio garden where we will have a table and chairs / bbq etc. Will the tiles withstand that sort of weight ok? The tile is 10mm thick, is that thick enough? Thanks
Our advice: Our Doblo Rock tiles are perfectly suitable for external use. They are a very dense and durable porcelain tile, and we would not expect there to be any problems in using garden furniture on the tiles.

We love this tile for our terrace area. We have been recommended to source a tile that is frost resistant and has water absorption rating of less than 0.5%. Can you please advise if this tile meets these criteria?
Our advice: The Doblo Rock Cream Porcelain (SKU 437260) is a porcelain tile rendering it water & frost resistant, along with a riven texture and an anti-slip rating of R11 making it ideal for external use. This tile also carries a PEI 5 rating rendering it suitable for heavy traffic and maximum performance indoors and out.
