Why Choose IPE and Porcelain Pavers for Fireproof Decking?

Our IPE Wood Pavers and Porcelain Pavers stand at the forefront of fireproof decking solutions, each bringing unique benefits to your urban outdoor space:

  • Class A Fire Rating: Both IPE Wood and Porcelain Pavers boast a Class A fire rating (ASTM E108-07a Spread of Flame), providing maximum safety against fire hazards in urban living environments.
  • Exceptional Durability: IPE Pavers, with a Janka Hardness Rating of 3680 LBS, and Porcelain Pavers, known for their strength and resistance to wear, offer long-lasting durability.
  • Eco-Friendly: Sourced from sustainable forests, IPE Pavers, and manufactured with eco-conscious processes, Porcelain Pavers contribute to the preservation of our planet’s resources.

IPE Wood Pavers: Natural Elegance with Yearly Care

IPE Wood Pavers bring the timeless beauty of natural wood to your outdoor spaces, available in sizes:

  • Standard Size: 23 5/8 by 23 5/8 by 1 3/4 inches (2 by 2 ft)
  • Extended Size: 23 5/8 by 46 5/8 by 1 3/4 inches (2 by 4 ft)

To maintain their color and finish, IPE Wood Pavers require annual treatment, making them a splendid choice for those who appreciate natural wood aesthetics and are willing to invest in its upkeep.

Porcelain Pavers: Stylish, Maintenance-Free Alternative

Porcelain Pavers offer a modern, hassle-free alternative to traditional decking materials, with the same Class A fire rating as IPE Wood but without the need for yearly maintenance. Their durability, ease of cleaning, and wide range of designs make Porcelain Pavers a cost-effective and stylish choice for enhancing condo balconies and outdoor spaces.

Installation and Maintenance:

Both IPE and Porcelain Pavers are renowned for their ease of installation. While IPE Wood requires annual treatment to maintain its appearance, Porcelain Pavers stand out for their low maintenance, needing only occasional cleaning to keep them looking brand new.

Design Flexibility and Value:

What is the most fire-resistant decking material?

When selecting decking materials for their fire resistance, it’s crucial to consider the fire rating, which reflects the material’s ability to withstand fire exposure. At Urban Balcony Flooring, we offer two exceptional choices for those prioritizing fire safety in their outdoor spaces: IPE Wood Pavers and Porcelain Pavers.

IPE Wood Pavers:

  • Class A Fire Rating: Our IPE Wood Pavers are certified with a Class A fire rating (ASTM E108-07a Spread of Flame), the highest rating for fire resistance. This rating ensures that IPE Wood provides maximum safety against fire hazards, making it an ideal choice for urban living spaces.
  • Natural Beauty and Durability: Beyond their fire resistance, IPE Wood Pavers are prized for their natural aesthetic and exceptional durability, with a Janka Hardness Rating of 3680 LBS. They require annual treatment to maintain their color and finish, offering a beautiful, long-lasting decking solution.

Porcelain Pavers:

  • Equivalent Fire Resistance: Like IPE Wood, our Porcelain Pavers also boast a Class A fire rating, ensuring they offer superior protection against fire hazards. Porcelain Pavers provide a modern, maintenance-free alternative to traditional decking materials, without the need for yearly maintenance.
  • Versatile and Stylish: Available in a variety of designs and finishes, Porcelain Pavers allow for creative flexibility in designing your outdoor space. They are highly resistant to wear, stains, and fading, making them a practical and stylish choice for fireproof decking.
