Porcelain, highly sought after for its contemporary looks, can pose serious and potentially dangerous performance issues – especially in pedestal-set applications. Watch as a standard 24” x 24” x 2” concrete paver and a standard 24” x 24” x .75” porcelain tile are elevated 10” off the ground, then put through a series of rigorous breakage tests.

It is possible, believe it or not, to combine smashing looks with nearly unsmashable strength.
