How Much Does a 1200 x 600 Tile Weigh?

- Porcelain: Denser and heavier than most other tile materials, 1200 x 600 porcelain tiles typically weigh around 18 to 22 kg per square metre.
- Ceramic: Generally lighter than porcelain tiles, a 1200 x 600 ceramic tile can weigh around 12 to 16 kg per square metre.
- Natural stone: The weight of natural stone tiles can vary greatly due to the differences in density and thickness between stone types. A 1200 x 600 natural stone tile can weigh anywhere from 20 to 35 kg per square metre.
How Thick Are 1200 x 600 Tiles?
That depends on the tile material and the manufacturer.
Generally, 1200 x 600 porcelain tiles are 8mm to 12mm thick. Some manufacturers offer thicker porcelain tiles for specific applications, such as outdoor use or heavy foot traffic areas.
Ceramic tiles are usually thinner, ranging from 6mm to 10mm thick.
Natural stone tiles can have a wide range of thicknesses, from 7mm up to 30mm, depending on the type of stone and its intended use. For example, travertine or limestone tiles may be thinner, while granite or marble tiles can be thicker.
Do Bigger Tiles Break Easier?
A tile's durability is primarily influenced by its material and quality rather than its size.
However, bigger tiles may be more prone to breakage during handling, transportation, and installation due to their size and weight. This is especially true for fragile materials such as natural stone or thinner tiles.
Once correctly installed with appropriate support and an even substrate, larger tiles are then just as durable as smaller tiles.
Is It Cheaper To Lay Large or Small Tiles?
The overall cost of laying larger tiles depends on the price of the tiles, labour costs, and the complexity of the installation.
It's important to understand that 600 x 1200 tiles are considered "large format tiles" and typically take a minimum team of two to install.
Additionally, larger tiles require more experienced installers, as they can be more challenging to handle, cut, and lay evenly. These factors can mean higher costs for laying larger tiles.
However, larger tiles can offer some material and labour cost savings during installation.
- Fewer tiles are needed to cover the same area compared to smaller tiles, resulting in less tile cuts and wastage.
- Less grout is required as there arefewer grout lines.
- Faster installation is expected as fewer tiles are needed to cover a given area.
