The standard pre-conception for pavers and permeable pavers is that they are expensive. This, for a large part, is due to the need for manual labor to install individual units. Belgard® Commercial has various concrete pavers and permeable pavers that are manufactured in machine installation patterns, whereby specialized equipment can install upwards of 5,000 square feet in a single work day.
This automation of the installation process significantly reduces the capital costs of installing Belgard pavers. Entire parking lots, streets, ports & airport tarmacs have been economically constructed using this approach.
The fact that pavers are factory manufactured in accordance with ASTM C-936, Standard Specifications for Solid Interlocking Concrete Paving Units, also benefits the bottom line. Test reports can accompany the product when it is shipped onsite, eliminating the potential risk of having to replace the product due to poor quality. Once the jointing material is installed, the surface is immediately ready for traffic - no curing delays are required.
