What would a pool be without nice looking paving? Pool paving like many other types of paving enhances the look and appeal of the area and of course keeps a lot of dirt from ending up in the pool. Municipal pools all have proper paving and the home owner can increase the value of their property by simply adding creative ideas to the swimming pool area.
Patio paving can be done in almost any way imaginable. Our patios are inside or outside areas where we will either have recreational activities or the back yard. Covering these areas with patio paving adds beauty to the home but also ensures that the dust and mud that would have been there without the paving is eliminated keeping our homes cleaner.
Walkway paving also referrers to pavements in and around city and neighbourhoods. It is done to add easy access and walking surfaces to areas where people might walk. First impressions last so it’s important to make a good one, and since your driveway serves as the entrance to your home, it can create a lasting impression that represents you, your home and your family. An attractive driveway not only makes a great first impression, but also contributes to setting both the visual tone and aesthetic of your home. When deciding on how to pave your driveway, you should consider how the driveway will promote the image of your home whilst simultaneously providing practical benefits that will add value and functionality to your home. It is also ideal for cycling surfaces and almost all inner city walking areas are completely paved. This allows for easy cleaning and maintenance and adds to the beautification of areas
Flag paving or flagstone paving is a type of paver that has a square or rectangular shape and laid down in different variants using the same pavers. They are larger in size than normal pavers or interlocking pavers and are mainly used to accentuate a feature like a pool or garden.
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
