Industrial Paving - Entrances, Parking Areas, Heavy Trucks, Factory Floors and Pavements, Factory Loading Areas, Bulk-Cargo Areas, Ports and Container-Handling Areas, Petrol Filling Stations
Industrial paving is used in areas where the traffic volume is very high and also has to be able to handle the weight of large trucks and goods. The type of paving mainly used is interlocking pavers as their design allows for weight and volume without breaking apart. You would see industrial paving in areas like loading docks, intersections and large parking areas.
The effect of entrance paving is possibly best experienced with the entrances to building like hotels and other prominent areas. By paving the entrance to your home you can create a look and design that suits the style of your home. Over the years this appeal that the entrance creates adds panache to the building.
Pavers – Concrete, Clay, Cobbles and Flagstones
Paving has been around for hundreds of years. Don’t be surprised when you walk on paving in Europe that it was laid 800 years ago by the Romans. Those days the pavers were handmade granite cobblestone and later fired clay pavers.
When you look around you will see paving being used in various ways and for various applications.
In the residential market you will find paving around the house to prevent damp in the walls, on driveways from the road leading to the garage, around pools and entertainment areas, entrance to the home and pathways leading the way around the home.
In the commercial market you would require hard wearing pavers to withstand the high volumes of traffic, low maintenance without sacrificing the astatic appeal.
Industrial pavers are mostly interlocking pavers 60 or 80 mm thick and have the strength and interlocking ability to withstand heavy duty traffic like trucks and trailers with loads, heisters, cranes and other heavy equipment.
Pavers are manufactured in three different ways.
Dry Cast pavers:.
The concrete mixture (sand, stone, and cement) is moist/damp and gets shaped in moulds and compacted. Only the top 10mm “capping” has colour. These pavers are the most economical pavers in the range. Dry cast pavers are suitable for domestic, commercial and industrial applications and are available in wide range of different shapes and colour.
Some of the dry cast products:
Corostone, Corolink, Coroplaza, Corolock, Easicobble, etc.
Driveways and entrances (referred to as curb appeal) to homes, hotels, restaurants, public buildings, pathways, traffic intersections, petrol stations, patios, parking areas, pavements, garages, complexes, holiday resorts, loading docks, factories, etc.
Wet Cast pavers:
The concrete mix (sand, stone, and cement) is wet and runny and gets shaped by moulds and is then vibrated to get all the air bubbles out the mix. These pavers are coloured throughout. Most wet cast pavers are suitable for domestic, commercial and industrial applications and are available in square or rectangular shapes, a variety of textures and colours. By using a combination of different pavers one can create unique designs and colour combinations.
Some of the wet cast products:
CoroCobble, Boardwalk Cobble, Legogote Cobble, Shepstone flagstone, Estcourt Flagstone.
Driveways and entrances (referred to as curb appeal) to homes, hotels, restaurants, public buildings, pathways, traffic intersections, petrol stations, patios, parking areas, pavements, complexes, holiday resorts, etc.
Entrances to home, pool surrounds, patios, courtyards, entertainment areas, pathways, verandas, etc
Also known as brick paving. These pavers are made from natural clay deposits, mixed, extruded and fired in a kiln at 1100 degrees Celsius. Clay pavers offer best value for money. These durable natural pavers have an unequalled astatic appeal. Available in a variety of beautiful natural colours. The same material and process is used for face bricks.
Until recent these clay pavers were all rectangular (110X220mm) however due to new technology these pavers are now available as Cobblestone (110X110mm) and square Doppio pavers (220X220mm) making the three sizes modular one can mix and match the various sizes and colour to create unique patterns and designs.
Some of the clay products:
Cedarberg, Burgundy, Tuscan Blend, Onyx, Graphite, Nutmeg, Champagne, Nougat
