Frequently Asked Questions

What does FL mean?

FL stands for Free Length. The free length format is only available in our natural stones.

Free lengths have a fixed width and varying lengths ranging anywhere from 450mm up to a maximum of 1000mm, laid as a random brick bond. You can expect a minimum of 3 different lengths in an order.

Read our FAQ's for more information on tile sizes and formats.

What is the difference between natural stone and porcelain tiles?

Natural stone is a naturally occurring material that has been quarried from the earth. The beauty of natural stone is that no two tiles are ever the same. All natural stone is porous and requires sealing every 3-5 years to protect against water and oil contamination.

Porcelain is a man-made product that combines kaolin clay, finely ground sand and feldspar. The clay mixture is fired to an extremely high temperature (upwards of 1200 c) resulting in a very dense tile that benefits from a low water absorption rate and stain resistance. Depending on the range, porcelain can be uniform in colour or display tonalities to mimic a natural stone.

Whilst the maintenance required of natural stone and porcelain differ slightly, both present a beautiful yet durable option for everyday living.

Are Quorn Stone tiles suitable for underfloor heating?

Yes! With the correct installation, all our tiles are suitable for underfloor heating. We advise using an anti-fracture matting when installing the tiles, and discussing any specific substrate or installation requirements with your installer.

Do I need to seal natural stone?

Sealant is required for natural stone tiles and will help protect the tiles against water and oil contamination. Subject to the correct maintenance, we recommend resealing internal dry areas, every 3-5 years.

How should I clean natural stone tiles?

We recommend using both dry and wet methods to keep your stone flooring looking its best. Sweeping and vacuuming (with the soft attachment) is great to pick up crumbs from the floor, whilst an occasional mop will keep your floor hygienic and lift light stains. We recommend using Lithofin Wash & Clean for frequent cleaning, and Lithofin Power Clean for intensive cleans.

It is important to use cleaning products designed for natural stone on your floor - regular household cleaners and steam cleaners can damage the surface of the tile and should be avoided.

How should I clean porcelain tiles?

We recommend using both dry and wet methods to keep your porcelain flooring looking its best. Sweeping and vacuuming (with the soft attachment) is great to pick up crumbs from the floor, whilst an occasional mop will keep your floor hygienic and lift light stains. We recommend using Lithofin Conditioning Cleaner for frequent cleaning and Lithofin Intensive Cleaner for intensive cleans.

It is important to use cleaning products designed for porcelain flooring (always check the manufacturers guidelines and test in a discreet area).
