All clay and concrete pavers are produced to function primarily as hard wearing surfaces.
Clay Paver Attributes
Pavers are produced in different formats and thicknesses. Typically thinner pavers (50mm or less) are more suitable for low trafficked applications such as domestic driveways, walkways and pedestrian pavements. Corobrik produces clay pavers in compliance with SABS classifications as defined below:
SABS Brick Classification
- PA - CLAY PAVERS (1:1, 2:1 or 3:1)
Clay pavers that are selected or produced for their durability and for a high degree of uniformity in size and shape, and that have dimensions such that the ratio of work size length to work size is approximately 1:1, 2:1 or 3:1.
- PB - CLAY PAVERS
Clay pavers that are selected or produced for their durability and for their uniformity in size and shape.
For achieving paved surfaces appropriate for the traffic/loads to be accommodated, the Clay Brick Association of South Africa has two technical handbooks – Flexible Segmental Clay Paving and Rigid Segmental Clay Paving. These should be referenced when choosing products:Download Handbooks
