Home News Ardex launches Exterior Tile and Stone Systems

Exterior Tile and Stone SystemsAliquippa, Pa.—Ardex launched Exterior Tile and Stone Systems, featuring four unique and time-tested passive capillary drainage solutions. Architects, landscape designers, contractors and installation professionals can now confidently specify tile and stone in outdoor spaces without fear of the inherent risks commonly associated with installations outdoors, according to the company.

In today’s health-conscience environment, outdoor spaces are now even more desirable in residential and commercial venues. The caveat is that exterior installations are subject to harsh weather and difficult environments. Issues such as efflorescence, staining, discoloring and disbonding are commonplace in outdoor installations. These problems are primarily caused by sedentary and evaporating water and moisture vapor.

Ardex Exterior Tile and Stone Systems provide four system options utilizing passive capillary drainage systems to protect and provide long-lasting durability for outdoor tile and stone installations. According to the company, those solutions efficiently manage water, allowing the water to move freely through the system and then move the water away from the installation.

The available solutions include:

  • Ardex Watec Drainage Systems: Suited for most types of tile and stone and ideal for low construction heights.
  • Ardex ProDrain Drainage Systems: Capillary passive water management systems for most types of tile and stone that require higher construction heights of 3 1/2” and more.
  • Ardex TerraMaxx TSL Pedestal Systems: Raised flooring support pedestal systems offering easy height and slope adjustments, no tools necessary.
  • Ardex TerraMaxx Cement Pedestal Drainage Systems: Cement mortar pedestal system for 3/4” (2cm) porcelain tile and natural stone pavers.
