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.
The most common walls are made of masonry while hedges are made out of plants like keiapple and bougainvillea. Most hedges add to the aesthetics of the compound when they bloom. One important thing to remember is that the wall should complement the building.
Paving block structures with mortar filled vertical joints can exhibit a significantly higher load capacity as comparable structures with sand filled joints. For this reason, this pavement construction method is increasingly being used or would be used, respectively, if its performance could be estimated reliably. Specifically, the exact cause of cracks due to cooling in winter has not been fully understood yet and appropriate prediction tools do not exist.
According to Bosun Brick, a leading manufacturer of pre-cast concrete pavers and kerbs, the selection of the correct product for your application is essential for the long term durability of the paved area.
