Unglazed quarry the UK?
« on: June 06, 2009, 05:45:26 PM »
Can any UK members advise me on exactly what im looking for here?

I was in B&Q today and had a brief look but nothing i seen was specifically called an "unglazed quarry tile", but i seen plenty of ceramic and natural stone tiles etc

What specifically am i looking for? ceramic? granite? terracotta? etc

Any advise would be appreciated!

I dont know how helpful this will be but I bought some clay terracotta creasing tiles from Travis Perkins made by the manufacturer "Koramic". They were relatively cheap and are lead-free. I don't know how good they would be considered here and the shape (rectagular with a tapered edge) isnt perfect but they stood up well to the abuse I gave them before I had ordered my Fibrament stone.
