Roof Deck Tiles

An outdoor roof deck is a deck or patio created on a flat roof outside a building.
As people become more aware of the importance of contact with nature,
roof decks have become increasingly popular in urban areas, where green spaces are often few and far between.

An ideal solution for creating welcoming, functional outdoor spaces, locations for relaxation, wellbeing and socializing that are increasingly central to daily life, in both private and public and commercial contexts.
One of the crucial factors when constructing a roof deck is the
choice of pavers, which must combine specific technical characteristics with an attractive, stylish appearance.

Kronos USA porcelain pavers for roof decks are produced in the United States and are designed to suit the taste and meet the performance and technical needs of the American market.

A ceramic product with
outstanding technical characteristics that offers many advantages over traditional natural materials:

  • Resistance to the Weather: our porcelain pavers are able to withstand extreme weather conditions including rain, snow, frost and intense heat, with no damage or change in their appearance.
  • Anti-Slip Properties: all our pavers have excellent slip resistance.
    This tested, certified technical characteristic increases roof deck users’ safety in damp and wet conditions.
  • Cleanliness and Hygiene: cleaning our porcelain pavers is very cheap and easy since they are non-absorbent.
    Their excellent technical properties make them highly resistant to scratches, stains, mould and bacteria.
  • Product Sustainability: our outdoor pavers are a highly sustainable product thanks to the use of natural raw materials like clay in state-of-the-art production plants which minimise environmental impact compared to the manufacture of other products.
    Our porcelain stoneware’s sustainability is also boosted by its durability, with an almost endless lifecycle, its low maintenance and 100% recyclability.
    One final aspect of our pavers’ sustainability is their capacity to reduce overheating caused by the heat island effect.
  • Wide Range: Our outdoor pavers are available in different sizes and a large assortment of colors in wood, concrete and stone looks.
    Ideal products for creating an outdoor location with the required design style for any intended purpose.
