Size & Pattern Guide

Free Length

Free length tiles (often referred to as flagstones) represent a diverse tile format, working well in large open-plan groundfloors as well as smaller spaces. Free lengths have a fixed width and varying lengths ranging anywhere from 500mm up to a maximum of 1000mm, laid as a random brick bond. You can expect a minimum of 3 different lengths in an order. Our Free Length XL (Super Size) tiles range up to 1400mm in length (only available in a selection of our limestones).
