  • LESS ABSORBENT – Paving blocks have less water absorption (5%), providing substantial resistance to oil and salt, common destructive agents to the life and appearance of other paving surfaces.
  • MORE ATTRACTIVE – Because paving Blocks are readily available in a variety of shapes and colours, an endless number of beautiful patters and designs can be created.

The strength and durability of paving blocks eliminates the costly patching and surfacing, while coloured blocks makes it possible to create a mosaic of parking-space lines and directional signs, which eliminates painting.

If for any reason, you have decided to replace or remove them for repairing a water line or any services which are normally laid under paved areas, simply remove the blocks, do the job and then replace the same blocks, provided that the removed blocks are preserved.

  • COST SAVINGS – The initially higher cost of paving blocks is recouped many times over through longer product life, reduced maintenance and repair, sealing and stripping costs, making paving blocks the most economical material available for our next paving job.

Because of the shapes, paving blocks have a unique ability of ‘interlocking’ which allows pavers to handle heavy loads and spread them over sub-base, by means of arching and bridging action. The preparation of the sub-base is extremely important because the life of the paving is entirely dependent upon the quality of the sub-base. Pavers are always laid over 50mm of sand bed.
