Drainage

In order to achieve a dreinage of the floor plan, it is necessary to create the adequate cross and longitudinal inclinations. Even putting aside the distinctive advantages of using porcelain stoneware, we remind you that Novoceram Outdoor Plus has awater absorption rate that is almost zero, and this characteristic maket it frost proof. This can lead to water deposit in certain specific areas, in particular on the edge of the slab, irrespective of a state-of-the-art installation of the material. Novoceram recommend to allow for at least 3mm grout .
