Materials for flooring to decorate the garden outside of the house or buildings รับสร้างบ้านโคราช that are actually prefabricated. And then there are many types. The prefabricated flooring materials found in the market are divided into two main types, namely floor blocks and floor tiles. I believe that many people will have doubts about how they are different. Let’s get to know the two materials more in order to be able to choose the right one for the area.
“Paving blocks”, or as many people call it worm blocks or worm bricks, are made from concrete with stone, lime, and sand as the main components. The paving block consists of two parts: the bottom layer of the block. and the surface layer or the color layer is the surface layer According to SCG standards, the color is mixed in the concrete and the surface layer has a thickness of approximately 4 mm. The surface layer has a thickness of approximately 4 mm., produced by the Dry Process system with high compression machines. It has the strength to withstand the weight up to 350 KSC (kg / cubic centimeter).
Sizes from 8×8 centimeters to large 40×80 centimeters. The thickness of the paving blocks ranges from 6-12 centimeters and has a variety of shapes of cubes, most of which are used to form a pattern. Beautiful patterns. And there are other models that are designed to be able to plant grass or have features to reduce heat and water can flow through, drain quickly.
Colors and surfaces of paving blocks The surface will have less resolution than the cement floor tiles due to the dry process production process and most of the cubes are of one color. Single Tone has no color patterning. SCG has designed and developed The surface of the paving block To be diverse, for example, the surface has a roughness like a stone surface. or has a surface showing stone grains like washed gravel
Summarize the advantages and disadvantages of paving blocks.
– Strong and durable, long service life
– Able to carry a lot of weight Therefore, it can be used for heavy duty applications such as roads.
– There are many shapes, can create unlimited patterns.
– There are blocks with special properties to choose from, such as planting grass, helping to reduce temperature.
– Able to dismantle and renovate the road surface by using the same material to save costs.
– There are quite a lot of joints between the cubes.
– Weeds often occur along the joints of the product. (can be prevented)
– All colors are one color
“Floor Cement Tiles” There are many names for this material, such as paving slabs, sidewalk slabs, exterior floor tiles. or garden tiles, etc. Cement floor tiles are made from cement as the main ingredient. The tile body consists of 2 main parts, which are the cube and the surface layer or paint layer with a thickness of approximately 5 mm., thus making the color durable. SCG cement floor tiles passed the test with transverse strength, flexural strength 3-5 MPa according to TIS standards.
The most popular sizes of floor tiles are 40×40 centimeters and 30×60 centimeters. Other sizes in the market range from 10×10, 20×20,30×30, as well as 60×60 centimeters, etc. Thickness of cement floor tiles It is thinner than paving blocks with a thickness of 3.5-4 centimeters. and rectangle Because it can be paved against each other easily. At present, there are more tile designs to choose from, including spheres, hexagonal shapes, or leaf imitation shapes, etc.
Colors and surfaces of concrete floor tiles The surface of the tile has a finer texture than the paving block. and colorful with beautiful patterns Because there will be a process of making beautiful colors and patterns that are realistic. and also durable For use on cement floor tiles Can be used to decorate the exterior Both the path in the garden and the courtyard as well as work on medium load areas such as parking lot in the house but not suitable for making roads that carry high loads
Summary of advantages and disadvantages of cement floor tiles
– Colorful and beautiful patterns
– The sheet is large so there are few joints
– Crabs are close together, no grooves between the cubes.
– Can be used to decorate the exterior floor, both types of garden decoration area around the house
– Can be used for medium weight applications such as parking lots (must be paved with mortar on concrete)
– Can bear less weight than paving blocks
– Not suitable for heavy load work such as road work
However, both types of flooring materials have different advantages and disadvantages. Should choose a flooring material that is suitable for use, taking into account various elements such as the nature of use. Installation suitability that fits the space a form or style that matches the beauty of the surrounding architecture, etc.
