Cut Stone step treads, risers and wall coping provide elegant paving & coping solutions

CUT STONE PAVERS – some FAQs asked and answered!

Slip Factor:   All our pavers are non-slip – which is why we promote them for Swimming Pool copings and outdoor walkways. The tiles are sealed with one coat of silicone seal when they leave the factory, which allows them to retain their colour and non-slip characteristics.

Sizing: Sizing is a subjective preference, but we have a variety of standard sizes suitable for most projects.  However, we can most certainly produce a specific size if required – many large-scale projects have specified particular sizes unique to our range – with particular cuts and angles. A good tip is to specify a tile that would be small enough to handle on site (which would also in turn allow a reduced thickness like 30 or 40 mm) and have a tile, that if not square, be about 490*240*30 or 40mm – but sizing is almost completely up to the design team.  Limits on our side – length 994mm by width 494mm; or 590mm by 590mm. 

Cleaning specs:  We suggest using high pressure washers – this eliminates the need for detergents which are harmful to the environment.  Our pavers / tiles can be cleaned in this manner due to their extremely high strength – we have achieved up to 63MPa. Although the water pressure cannot not be overtly excessive – dirt can easily be removed in this manner.  (Specific instructions are found in our paving guidelines.)
