    Q. Can Vedastone Porcelain be used outside?

    Vedastone Porcelain can be used outside due to its high durability and UV stability. Unlike engineered stone, porcelain panels are UV stable, meaning the colour in the panels will not fade over time. As well as this, Vedastone Porcelain is highly durable and can withstand wind, rain and sea air damage.

    Q. Are Thicker Porcelain Panels Better?

    Our Large Format Porcelain Panels are available in two thicknesses; 6mm and 12mm. Each thickness is better for different applications. For example, we recommend for Porcelain benchtops to use 12mm panels as they are more durable than our 6mm panels. For splashbacks we recommend using 6mm panels as they are more cost effective, however both 6mm and 12mm panels are suitable for use. For any wall cladding we recommend using 6mm panels as they are lighter and easier to manoeuvre when cladding a wall compared to our 12mm panels.
