For Architects

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are one of the most durable products for both wall and floor coverings. Tiles are inert, colourfast and if installed correctly, likely to last a lifetime. Unlike many natural materials such as stone, tiles do not require any waterproofing sealers and they are extremely easy to maintain. Our ranges are stringently tested to ensure they are safe and suitable to use for the intended location. Health and Safety requirements are of paramount importance to us and we work very closely with the Architect to ensure the correct product gets specified, whether at the Architectural practice or at our Architectural / Designer Showroom in Newtongrange.

In conjunction with our partners at Mapei UK we can supply written M40 NBS Specifications. This valuable service not only saves the Architect time but it gives added peace of mind that the correct product is being installed using the correct materials. Working in partnership with Schluter Systems, we can also supply guidance and written specifications for products such as uncoupling membranes and movement joints. The correct procedure of cleaning tiles is very important, not just for aesthetic reasons but also to ensure the tile retains it's technological characteristics. To assist with this we also provide cleaning specifications so that the end user benefits fully from the specified product.

From Stage 1 of a project, through to completion and beyond, Ora Ceramics offer professional support and guidance where necessary.
