BAKSTEEN CLAY PAVERS
Baksteen Clay Pavers
Baksteen clay pavers are tumbled to reveal a weathered and antiqued appearance. When laid on edge (using 65mm thickness) on a suitably designed bedding and sub base, these pavers will withstand heavy vehicular traffic and cover 9.6 sqm each pack. Alternatively, they can be laid on bed (using the 50mm thickness) and are suitable for pedestrian, pathway, garden borders and light vehicular traffic. This way will cover 12.63 sqm Please note that coverage stated is nominal.
Looking for something a bit different? Why not try Herringbone Pattern. AJ McCormack and Son have a good guide which can be found here:
Clay minerals are formed over long periods of time by the gradual chemical weathering of rocks. When dry, clay becomes firm and when fired in a kiln, permanent physical and chemical changes occur which cause the clay to be converted into a ceramic material suitable for use as bricks and paviors.
Clay paving comes in a rich array of earthy colours including terracotta, charcoal and buff yellow and offers an alternative to sandstone and granite pathway setts.
Product – Single Size Packs Thickness (mm) Average
per pack (kg) Nominal
pack (m2) Number
200 x 50mm (laid on edge) 65 1250 – 1466 9.6 sq meters per pack 960 pieces
200 x 65mm (laid on bed) 50 1250 – 1466 12.63sq meters per pack 960 pieces
You can either lay this block paving on the edge (200 x 50 x 65mm) which is suitable for heavy traffic such a shopping centre carpark or flat on the bed (200 x 65 x 50mm) which is suitable for light vehicle traffic and pedestrians. This can be significantly cheaper than laying on the edge especially for large areas.
