Dutch term or phrase: dubbelhardgebakken 10 X 10 tegel
Context:

I am currently translating a handbook for a construction firm, and am having problems with three terms.

Unfortunately these terms are mentioned in a table and not in a complete sentence, so there's very little to go by...

I have divided these three words into three seprate questions, so as to award KudoZ point for each correct/most useful answer.

Thanks for your help!

This appears to be the best answer - I have seen this terminology mentioned in quite a few leaflets and books, and also found the reference very useful. Many thanks to everyone for their suggestions, Pikey.

10x10 cm double hard-burnt tile/flag


Explanation:
10x10 stands for the dimensions of the tile or flag, probably in cm.
dubbelhardgebakken: I know that hardgebakken = hard-burnt, so I am assuming that it has been "baked" twice (in a furnace to harden it).
I think tile would be if the thing were to be used on a wall, for instance in a bathroom. Flag is usually used for flooring tiles.
