Pavers Blocks

Paver block or Paving block is one of the most popular flexible surface treatment options for exterior pavement applications. These blocks are aesthetically pleasing, comfortable to walk on, extremely durable, and easy to maintain.

Types of Paver Blocks

There are two types of paver blocks:

1. Concrete Paving Block

Concrete blocks are mass manufactured to standard sizes. Hence, they can be easily interchanged. A typical concrete block has two surfaces - one is smooth, and the other is a rough surface. The concrete paving blocks are most suitable for heavy-duty applications, able to support substantial loads and resist shearing and braking forces. The concrete blocks come in various colors. The colors typically come from metallic oxides. However, there is a possibility of these colors to fade away. Hence one needs to be very careful while choosing the color of the block. Concrete paving blocks are the most preferred choice for laying of pavements, driveways, etc.

2. Clay Paving Blocks

Clay paving blocks are also called bricks or cobbles. These blocks are generally available as typical, rectangular brick-shaped. Although custom shapes can be made for specific projects. Unlike the concrete paving blocks, either side of clay paving blocks can be used. So both sides are interchangeable. Clay blocks are available in natural color only; hence the possibility of color fading is not there in these blocks. These blocks are mostly used for walls or pillars.

Shapes and Classification of Paver Blocks

There are four generic shapes of paver blocks corresponding to the four types of blocks:
  1. Type A: Paver blocks with plain vertical faces, which do not interlock into each other when paved in any pattern,
  2. Type B: Paver blocks with alternating plain and curved/corrugated vertical faces, which lock into each other along the curve/corrugated faces, when paved in any pattern,
  3. Type C: Paver blocks having all faces curved or corrugated, which lock into each other along with all the vertical faces when paved in any pattern and
  4. Type D: 'L' and 'X' shaped paver blocks that have all faces curved or corrugated and which lock into each other along with all the vertical faces when paved in any pattern.
