Why porcelain stoneware?
Porcelain stoneware is a type of ceramic tile known for its high density and low porosity. Porcelain stoneware tiles offer excellent durability as they are highly resistant to scratches, stains, moisture, heat, and other elements that would harm other flooring materials over time. This makes them an ideal choice for large-scale homes or commercial spaces with high foot traffic. Slabs of porcelain stoneware are also an affordable alternative or complement to natural stone and parquet flooring, which will add a luxurious look to any property with particularly generous sizes such as 120 x 120cm up to 320 x 160cm. Porcelain stoneware patio slabs and tiles are available in a variety of colors and styles, allowing you to customize the look of your indoor and outdoor living areas.

Properties and advantages of porcelain stoneware
Porcelain stoneware is more flexible in its application than any other building material. Nevertheless, it has all the qualities that discerning builders associate with a noble stone floor. Our technostone is a technically produced stone made of natural quartz, feldspar and a proportion of kaolin. The natural "stone components" are ground finer than flour, pressed and sintered at a temperature of over 1200°C. It is therefore produced "technically". This is what makes porcelain stoneware so variable. Our technical stoneware is available in a wide range of colours, patterns and structures.
The properties of porcelain stoneware are also its advantages:
Technical advantages of porcelain stoneware
- Porcelain stoneware is abrasion and scratch resistant : Our Technostein has a hardness of level 8 according to Mohs. The Mohs scale ranks from 1 to 10 and provides a relatively good estimate of the degree of hardness for stones. The fixed levels of the scale are based on which stone can be carved by the next hardest. For comparison: a diamond has level 10, a Topaz is on the same level with our Technostein. This makes our porcelain stoneware incredibly robust.
- Acid-resistant and fireproof.
- This means that our technostone remains lightfast and colourfast, which means you will always enjoy it.
On top of all this, porcelain stoneware also has an antibacterial effect, which brings us to the next category within the advantages of Schubert Stone's technostone:
Cleaning porcelain stoneware - a great advantage
- Tiles made of porcelain stoneware are inherently very hygienic. This results from the antibacterial effect mentioned above.
- In general, our technostone is insensitive to stains due to its high density and acid resistance.
- If stains do appear, they are easy to remove for this very reason.
- Even if the stains are stubborn, the advantage is that you can use even the toughest cleaners! Our technostone owes this to its robustness.
What are the advantages of porcelain stoneware over natural stone?
In addition to the advantages already mentioned, the following can be noted once again in comparison to natural stone:
- Its robustness makes our technostone extremely resilient and thus verydurable.
- There are hardly any limits to your creativity or ideas . Patterns, colours and sizes can be adapted to your wishes. Whether you want your tiles to have a slate look (only much more robust and easy to maintain), or your patio floor to have a wood look, but without much maintenance: porcelain stoneware provides you with a combination of the best properties!
- Our Technostein tiles are available in almost all dimensions. We can therefore also supply you with stone tiles up to a size of 300x150cm. An ideal size for laying seamless wall tiles for the shower!
We have put together a few examples for you below:
Bathroom wall and floor tiles
Tiles made of porcelain stoneware in the bathroom are ideal because of their advantages.
Thanks to their processing, they are very compact and do not absorb water. Clean limescale and dirt with the harshest (even acidic) cleaning agents. The combination of moisture resistance and durability is ideal for wet areas. Our Technostein can also be wonderfully combined with underfloor heating! Design your walls with floor-to-ceiling slabs. This means there are hardly any joints and thus a generous, refined look.
Kitchen tiles and worktops
Our technostone is also ideal for the kitchen. Whether as a worktop, floor tiles or wall tiles. It is heat-resistant and insensitive to stains, as well as easy to clean - even with very strong cleaning agents if necessary. This makes it easy to clean up any cooking accident without leaving any traces.
Porcelain stoneware outdoors
As resistant as porcelain stoneware is, it is of course also suitable for outdoor use. Whether as a terrace floor, around the pool or simply as a stone path in the lawn. Our technostone is definitely a good choice!
The following specifications have already convinced many of our customers to lay our Technostein outdoors:
Porcelain stoneware is absolutely frost-proof, scratch-resistant, homogeneous in the stone structure, robust, dense (no staining) and has no problems when you clean your surface with the Kärcher. Your floor is also completely safe to drive on (when laid in mortar on concrete) and, thanks to its feel, can also be walked on pleasantly barefoot. Due to its low weight (thickness 2cm: 50kg/m²), it is also ideal for roof terraces .
We offer the following sizes for floors and facades:
60x60x2 cm | 80x80x2 cm | 90x90x2 cm | 120x120x2 cm

Large-format porcelain stoneware tiles
The trend in the industry clearly shows: large-format tiles are more popular than ever! With large floor and wall formats, rooms can be designed more openly and discreetly at the same time. With tile sizes of up to 320x160x0.56, the grout pattern is hardly recognisable. Floors and walls now look as if they have been cast from a single mould. Precious surfaces, looks and colours take your living ambience to a new level with these new tile sizes.

60x60x1 cm | 90x90x1 cm | 100x100x0,6 cm | 120x120x0,6 cm | 150x150x0,6 cm | 160x160x0,6 cm
