How To Cut Porcelain Tiles

Step One –

Outdoor porcelain tiles are super strong and cannot be cut using traditional hand tools. In order to minimise breakages and spoiled cuts, our supplier recommends using a water fed cutter with a diamond blade. This will also help to minimise dust. Always wear gloves, safety footwear, googles and respiratory protection when using cutting equipment. Handle your tiles with care to avoid breakages and seek assistance when lifting.

Step Two –

Measure and mark a line where you would like to cut the tile. Cut from the top surface with the blade running at half-revs. Bring the blade into contact with the tile. As the blade bites the tile, increase the revs if necessary and progress along the marked line/ Ensure the blade is water fed throughout and remains evenly balanced. Do not attempt to plunge the blade through the tile in one go – progress steadily and repeat the process until the tile is cut.
