Should Paving look like THIS…?

This image illustrates areas of concrete block paving installed over a DTp Type 1 sub-base. Water has penetrated the paver joints and has become trapped in both the sub-base and the sand laying course material. Subsequent trafficking has led to the deformation - click to read more

When it SHOULD look like this:

Concrete block paving, sealed stabilised and protected with RESIBLOCK - click to go to Case Studies
Natural stone sealed with RESIBLOCK to prevent erosion from cleaning regimes - click to go to Case Studies

From road construction projects to airport runway maintenance – many commercial paving service providers use RESIBLOCK. Avoid block paving sinking and sand erosion: ensure paving sealers are specified in your paving construction and ground maintenance plans.

No.1 The Problem

When sand erodes from the joint it leads to loss of interlock within the paver system, resulting in chipping and spalling and ultimately paver destabilisation. The erosion of the sand filled joints can be either natural or manmade, brought about such forces as: Vacuum sweeping, Pressure washing, Rainwater over slope / gradient or Tidal water flows.

Furthermore, as the jointing material erodes it serves to expedite water infiltration which can lead to degradation and liquefaction of the laying course and subgrades, in turn resulting in structural failure. This means high maintenance cost and the possibility of tripping accidents which could lead to claims where someone has had a trip or fall.

No.2 The Solution

The key to ensuring low maintenance and reduced tripping accidents within a segmental paving system is to provide and maintain good interlock. This can only be achieved by retention of the jointing sand which can be attained by simply applying the appropriate Resiblock product to the paving at the point of installation of the paver units.

No.3 The Benefit

Think about it, contractors are already on site, disruption would be kept to a minimum, one simple application of Resiblock could prevent the high costs associated with maintenance, repair and claims.

No.4 The Provider

Resiblock Europe’s leading specialists have been stabilising paving for almost 20 years and have provided materials to seal / stabilise in excess of 10 million square metres of paving. We have numerous Case Studies where projects have benefitted from the installation of Resiblock resulting in long term paver stabilisation which means long term maintenance-free paving. Resiblock’s expertise has drawn upon projects at airport and port side pavements with such diverse sites as Heathrow Airport to the world’s largest transhipment port in Salalah, Oman to Disneyland Hong Kong.

Resiblock’s wealth of expertise and knowledge is now generally recognised as the most definitive in the field.
