COMPLETE LAYING VERSATILITY.

The Frontier20 product line is so simply perfect, elegant and functional, that the challenge of installation is not “How can I install Frontier20?” but rather, “Where else do I want to install Frontier20?”. Frontier20 may be installed using the traditional mortared bed, the more modern over sand and limestone, to the eco friendly permeable method, or even the budget conscious elevated deck or pedestal application.

DRY LAYING

ON GRASS.

The slabs are laid dry onto a grass surface without the need for adhesives. The external paving can easily be altered at any time and each slab can be removed and reused. Simply cut your grass in the desired application area as short as possible. Bare earth is always better. Rake out loose soil or a bed of fine gravel to level out the grade as needed. Compact loose soil or gravel and install. Take into consideration “rocking” of the paver. If “rocking” occurs adjust the soil or gravel and make it flat and level.

DRY LAYING

ON GRAVEL.

Installing porcelain pavers over gravel can allow a cost effective means to allow for water drainage on a flat patio. Costly swales and drains are no longer necessary. Simply put down a base of 4-6” of compacted limestone (57 limestone), screed the stone level, compact the stone and with the use of tile spacers leave a minimum 1/4” joint that will allow water to freely flow directly underneath your patio or walkway. The joint can then be filled using 1/2” stone chips or flakes. The application can also be utilized as an overlay for an array of existing substrates.

DRY LAYING

ON SAND.

Traditional concrete paver installation can also be utilized and is the ideal installation practice, especially where ground frost is common throughout the winter. 4-6” of compacted road base grade limestone should be used with a sand as a top dressing. With concrete pavers typically 3/4” -1 1/2” of sand is common. We recommend only 3/4” of uncompacted sand. This allows for the easiest installation and allows for reconfiguration at anytime. Again a minimum of 1/4” joint should be maintained and filled in with your choice of paver sand.

INSTALLATION OVER REINFORCED CONCRETE *.

The Frontier20 may also be installed with tradional methods using thinset/thickset mortar appropriate for use with porcelain tile. In a short 24 hours your floor will be ready for foot traffic. This method offers the most stable and most durable floor covering that is able to withstand foot traffic up to light vehicular traffic.

* It is recommended installation over 4” minimum thick reinforced concrete, using a thinset/thickset mortar suitable for porcelain tile.

ADVANTAGES.

  • Long term durability
  • Readily accessible surfaces
  • Able to withstand pedestrian and light vehiclure traffic

INSTALLATION OVER DECKING.

With Frontier20 it is possible to install porcelain paver on top of the decking surface using an innovative structure. A special construction is erected underneath using wooden planks placed perpendicularly to the ground to act as joists, thereby creating a cavity. Above this structure a honeycomb plastic grate is placed parallel to the ground, to act as the substrate for the porcelain stoneware. This system is highly innovative and functional for the design of contemporary outdoor spaces.

ADVANTAGES.

  • ANTISLIP
  • EASY TO MAINTAIN
  • DURABLE OVER TIME
  • HIGH END LOOK

RAISED FLOORS.

In combination with a suitable structure the Frontier20 porcelain paver in 20mm thickness lend themselves perfectly to floors with a suspended installation. The adjustable stand means being able to create an air space under the floor in which to lay electrical conduit or plumbing. The raised flooring system is easy to manage, allows you to configure the underlying wiring or plumbing systems based on specific needs and also to change its configuration any time a new look is needed.

ADVANTAGES.

  • Level off uneven surfaces
  • Allows you to hide unsightly pipes and plants wires and electrical conduit
  • Easy maintenance
  • Allows for water drainage
  • Resistant to thermal expansion
  • Provides thermal and acoustic insulation
  • No need for adhesives
  • Reduces labour costs

LOCATIONS.

  • Patios
  • Gazebos
  • Facility areas of commercial venues
  • Roof tops

RAISED FLOORS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INSTALLATION

For raised installation, Frontier20 slabs are installed onto pedestal supports with a distance of a 1/4” between adjacent slabs once the underlying footing has been duly layered with water-proofing materials. In this way, there is a technical gap below the foot-plan that can be easily inspected by lifting the slabs.

INSTALLATION SYSTEM.

LOW HEIGHT SUPPORTS.

System made up of disks of variable thickness. Utilize for low height installation (up to 3/4”).

ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT SUPPORTS.

System made up of adjustable height pedestal (from 1 1/4” to 16”).

It is recommended to carry out raised installation onto a solid, resistant substrate with the correct inclination to guarantee water drainage. Support come equipped with four spacers that allow for the creation of grout lines between tiles. For a correct installation against walls or corners, it is necessary to keep the supports distant from the wall and remove 2 or 4 spacers as showed in the picture. Landmark Ceramics recommends to strictly follow the instructions for the raised installation of Frontier20.
