R9 - Best used in dry indoor areas: Bathrooms*, kitchens*, hallways*, living rooms, bedrooms and studies.
Generally, smooth surface gloss or matt tiles which can produce a slip hazard when wet, as a shoe may slide over the tiles*Suitable matting should be in place to absorb water splashes etc
R10 - Best used in indoor or outdoor areas where there may be minimal wetting remaining on the surface: Bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, food courts, and commercial areas with external entrances.
The tile surface will generally be a textured matt glaze, sometimes with a slight surface structure, designed to prevent shoes from sliding over their surface.
R11 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface: Wetrooms, exposed balconies, patios.
The tile surface will usually be a heavier textured matt glaze, sometimes with a slight surface structure, designed to prevent shoes from sliding over their surface. Designed for both indoor and outdoor areas, where there can also be the presence of other surface contaminants, such as liquid soaps and leaf debris.
R12 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface: Wetrooms, exposed balconies, patios, swimming pool surrounds, factory production lines, vehicle inspection pits
The tile surface will often have deep recesses to drain water and other liquid contaminants from the raised surface areas.
R13 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface combined with other contaminants, steps or ramps: Commercial swimming pool and spa surrounds, Factory production lines, vehicle inspection pits
The tile surface will have very deep recesses to drain water and other liquid contaminants, such as oils from the raised surface areas and are designed for commercial areas including industrial process areas where there is dangerous equipment present

Hi is it required to bond/pva the back of the 20mm slab before laying? I did not anticipate this! However came across some suggestions that it’s a must! My tile is the Icarus Grey Thanks
Our advice: This tile can be installed either on to a cured concrete base and adhered using an external tile adhesive. This method would not require the back of the tile being primed. The second method would be installing the tiles onto a hardcore base. We would only recommend using this method if you plan to adhere the tiles using our Norcros Rock Tite system. This system includes a Primer, Mortar and brush in grout. The products would need to be used in line with the instructions set by Norcros in order for the installation to be sound.
What type of outdoor grout should be used with these tiles. With 7mm spacers. Also do these tiles need sealed once payed and grouted? Thanks
Our advice: We would advise using either our Ultracolor Manhattan (Light Grey) 110 Flexible Grout 5kg SKU: 6011005A or Norcros Rock-Tite Brush in Grout 15kg - Steel Grey SKU: 451490. These tiles do not require sealing but you could protect them by using our LTP Porcelain Tile Protector - Pre Grout Treatment Interior & Exterior Use SKU: LTP391.

Is there a time you would recommend as match for this internally?
Our advice: There isn't unfortunately.
Your Q&A responses recommend a 5mm gap for grouting. If using pedestals, can this gap be reduced much further?
Our advice: Grouting is not necessary for an installation on pedestals. When installing onto pedestals the gap between tiles is not negotiable and will be dictated by the cross-pieces on the top of the pedestals, the gaps will be around 2-3mm.
Is there an indoor version of these tiles?
Our advice: This tile does not have an indoor companion tile.
If laying on pedestals does it require one in the middle or would it be strong enough for a patio with just the corners?
Our advice: For a 600x600mm slab tile, a central support would not be necessary. There would be no harm in adding one but it would not be essential.
Can you lay these in sand and cement?
Our advice: We wouldn't advise laying these tiles into a sand cement base. The tiles can either be laid onto a concrete base and adhered with an exterior tile adhesive or they may be installed onto a hardcore base and adhered using our Norcros Three Part Rock Tite System.
