New Deck Tile Projects and Products for 2016


Wow,  what a great year 2016  has been for Deck Tile Direct with new projects, new deck designs and new products.  Our modular porcelain pavers have been the latest craze in modular flooring.  We are very proud to be a part of it by importing and distributing some of the best Italian porcelain products for raised floors.  Our new products have far exceeded our expectations in both durability and good looks.  The below photos show some of our 2016 projects from this past year.  Simulated stone, simulated hand cast concrete and simulated wood all available now in a low maintenance yet lightweight paver for raised floors.

The Pearl Hotel, Florida Completed June 2016

The pear hotel is just that the pearl of the west cape of Florida.  Tucked into an area full of white sand beaches it is a true luxury resort experience and the essence of a boutique hotel.  The design is classic Florida with a clean, modern yet tropical look and feel.  Our porcelain pavers in sandy white were the perfect fit and it shows.  The entire floor is elevated over 6 inches to hide conduit, gas lines for the firepit and drains underneath. The results were,  well... lets just say epic!


Design Improvements to our proprietary Wood Pavers.  No one does them like we do!

Improvements to our wood pavers far exceed the competition.  Our focus has always been wood quality.  But what about the construction of our wood pavers.  Being that they are hand made.  It is important to use the best materials available to us.  Well thats why we went the extra mile to create a wood paver with the best marine grade stainless steel screws in 316 stainless the highest grade for corrosion resistance.  this ensures that the paver will last the test of time as the wood will.  Ipe, curupay and Garapa all have an incredible lifespan. This combined with our new fixation screws creates a paver that will last 30+ years without any doubt.  Imagine that a deck that lasts 30+ years. 

Design Improvements to our Hex Tray support and Snow melt system

For 2016 we have improved our support tray system for our porcelain pavers.  For a raised floor of over 24" we reccomend our hex tray system which allows the paver to have added support and the option of snow melt.  These strong 1.5" thick trays support the paver over the pedestals ensuring zero chance of failure even if the tile where to crack under a load of 2000 lbs or more.  These incredibly strong trays snap onto the paver itself and create a bulletproof floor for heavy duty commercial applications.
