With all the shapes available in the marketplace today
you are sure to find the perfect paver for your project.
||Paver shapes can create engaging patterns and designs that no other paving material can
match. The color, shape, pattern, and visual texture of pavers add charm, vitality, and
ambiance to any landscape setting.
Manufacturers offer a multitude of shapes
that can be combined, from simple patterns to intricate patterns.
|You can create your own unique design by mixing and matching different shapes
and colors. Some shapes and their patterns are of larger dimensions and they need a larger area
to show their beauty. If you have a combination of larger and smaller areas, combining different
shapes will be easy. Keep in mind that you should use color combinations for a pleasing effect.
Numerous research and observations demonstrate that paver shapes do contribute
largely to the structural performance of a concrete block pavement. Dentated shapes key
optimally into each other and, by their plan geometry, interlock and resist the relative
movement of joints parallel to both the longitudinal and transverse axes of the unit.
Researchers have therefore divided paver shapes into three types:
A - Fully interlocking on both axes
B - Interlocking on one axes
C - Non dentated - basic square and rectangular shapes
Many geometric shapes lend themselves to modular paving, but rectangles are the simplest
to manufacture, to package and ship to sites and Builders' supply throughout the land, and so the
paving market has been dominated by rectangles literally since the beginning.
|The market for block paving has become more sophisticated, so the demand for
new, exciting, innovative products has grown, and the leading manufacturers spend a lot of
time, effort and money trying to develop innovative paving shapes and patterns to meet the growing demand.
There are a large variety of shapes, such as
hexagons, pentagons, octagons, parallelograms, fans, keyhole-shapes, X-shapes, W-shapes and
more. As mould technology and production techniques continue to evolve, you can be sure
that interesting and more wonderful shapes will make their presence upon the paver marketing pathway.
