The manufacture of concrete paving blocks is a highly specialised process. Concrete pavers need to be dimensionally accurate and meet the required compressive strengths and abrasion resistance standards. Product should ideally be sourced from a SABS accredited manufacturer. (SABS 1058 sets out the standards and tolerances for concrete paving blocks.
This is to make sure that your block paving looks aesthetically pleasing. You also want to make sure that whatever you lay will stand up to the elements and time. Most of all you want it to be a safe surface. Luckily we have a handy guide to help you lay the most beautiful and functional block paving possible.
Likewise, fires pose less of a problem to the structure of a concrete building as a concrete block can take a high degree of heat without cracking or suffering severe damage. Thus, if the worst does occur, at least your building will be safe and won’t crumble to the ground.
Another great application for concrete is in building driveways. Many people aren’t too happy with the idea of pavers, thinking that they are more expensive or less durable than a poured concrete driveway. In fact, quite the opposite is true because by using pavers and sand, not only is it easier to maintain your driveway, it is also more cost effective.
