Innovation in Paving Stones
Modern technology continues to improve our lives by making things easier, more durable, and cost effective. Innovations in paving stones have done this and more. Pavers have been used for centuries and are still gracing the countryside throughout Europe. They were used in Roman roads, old European villages, and Spanish courtyards. They are romantic and deliver old world charm to any of your outdoor spaces. The rustic beauty of paving stones has not changes, what has is how they are made and how durable they are.
We work with local pavers manufacturers that are constantly innovating and improving their product line. Since we are a Southern California pavers contractor, we have the privilege of visiting their facilities and learning about the latest and greatest innovations so that we can offer them to our customers.
Here are some of the latest innovations in paving stones.
Belgard’s Mega Lafitt and Mega Arbel Line
Belgard is based in California and is a leader in innovation. They spend over 20,000 hours per year on research and development. This has enabled them to continually come out with new colors, textures, shapes, and designs. It has also enabled them to create the Mega Lafitt and Mega Arbel lines. These lines look like traditional flagstone with a major difference. Flagstone could be easily chipped and broken. On the other hand, these products are so durable that they can hold the weight of a fire truck without sustaining any damage. This is an amazing innovation because for years people had to choose between the look of flagstone and the durability of cement. Now they can have both.
As a company that believes in sustainable business practices, we are always looking for ways to promote green solutions. Our local manufacturers create permeable pavers that promote the natural water cycle. This is extremely important because water runoff is a major cause of pollution and hurts our echo system. When rainwater falls onto cement, it will run off into storm water drains carrying pollution from the surface with it. The water going into the drain does not nourish the earth, nor is it able to evaporate into the atmosphere again. Permeable pavers solve this problem by enabling water to seep in through the pores of the pavers, into the gravel base, and back into the earth where it belongs. The gravel base works as a purification system that removes the pollutants prior to the water entering the earth. Water is then able to nourish the ground and plant life before evaporating back into the atmosphere.
