Product Description

Paver Blocks/Interlocking Tiles

Paver block or paving block or Interlocking Tile is perhaps the most well-known adaptable surface treatment choices for outside asphalt application. These paver blocks or interlocking tiles are stylishly satisfying, agreeable to walk on, incredibly strong and simple to maintain. Block paving is the decorative method of creating a pavement or hard standing.

Different Types of Paver Blocks/Interlocking Tiles

The interlocking paver blocks can be divided into 4 main categories based on:

  • 1. The materials used in their production
  • 2. Thickness and grade
  • 3. Pattern and use
  • 4. Shapes and Locking

Concrete Paver Blocks/Interlocking Tiles

The most common type of paver blocks/ interlocking tiles, widely used all over the world is Concrete Paver Block/Interlocking Tile. Interlocking Paver Blocks are also called segmental Pavers. These special types of pavers have emerged in The United States over the last few decades. Earlier, brick, clay or concrete was used for paving. These conventional materials used for paving have been replaced by the interlocking pavers. ICBP (Interlocking Concrete Block pavement) technology has been introduced in India in construction, few decades ago, for specific requirement like footpaths, parking areas etc. but now being adopted extensively in different uses where the construction of pavement using hot bituminous mix or cement concrete technology is not feasible or desirable. Concrete block paving is made from crushed stone, sand and cement. Hence it can be said that it can be made from concrete. The concrete mix is blended in varying quantities with either mixed or singular colors then allowed to dry and set in shaped molds. These are tough, strong, and durable. Also, they can sustain all types of climatic conditions.

Advantages of Paver Blocks/Interlocking Tiles

  • It gives excellent performance when applied at locations where the conventional systems have lower service life due to number of geographical, environmental, traffic and operational constraints.
  • The construction process becomes very speedy with the usage of paver blocks/ interlocking tiles.
  • Also, it has high dimension accuracy so it can be treated properly on a particular place or where it is required to be fixed.
  • Generally after the construction, the curing is required so that structure can gain its strength. But in case of paver blocks/ interlocking tiles no curing is required. So, it can be opened for traffic immediately after construction.
  • The construction of paver blocks/ interlocking tiles is labor intensive and requires less sophisticated equipment.
  • Also, its low maintenance cost and high salvage value ensures low life cycle cost. It can be simply washed with water.
  • Good quality of paver blocks/ interlocking tiles ensures durability of pavement for around 20 years, when constructed to specifications.
  • These paver blocks/ interlocking tiles are slip- resistant.
  • Due, to its availability in different colors it can be used as permanent traffic marking.
  • In case of any damage it is very easy to replace individual paver block/ interlocking tile.
