What Is Block Paving?
Block paving is a method of using individual blocks laid down on the ground to create a driveway, a pathway through a garden, a patio, or other creative outdoor flooring solution.
The bricks or blocks come in different thickness levels from 50mm right up to 100mm or greater for commercial applications like ports and freight yards flooring.
Different types of materials are used for paving blocks. Moulded concrete block paving is a popular form of block paving which comes in a variety of forms, textures, colours, and designs. Some concrete blocks use face mix technology where only the top surface has the block design and below it is a less expensive base mix. This helps to reduce the cost of the block paving without sacrificing any of the attractiveness.
Kiln-fired clay bricks are also popular and are often made by the same companies that produce house bricks. Their colouring is natural, rather than created through a dye colouring process, but this does restrict the colour choices available.
