Restraints are an important part of the paving stones pavement system.
They hold pavers tightly together, enabling consistent interlock of the
units throughout the entire pavement. They prevent the pavers from
spreading apart under horizontal traffic forces and from minor
settlement. They can take the form of existing structures such as
buildings, curbs, etc.

A quality that driveway pavers possess is their incredible load-bearing
strength. Each driveway paver transmits a load laterally, supporting
adjacent pavers which in turn are supported by neighbouring driveway
pavers, interlocking them together. Unilock pavers are manufactured in
a controlled environment and have nearly three times the PSI
compressive strength of usual poured-in-place concrete and maintain a
high degree of seasonal flexibility making them an ideal design
solution for driveway surfaces.

Driveway curbs can be modified for a specified fee by the municipality
or an approved contractor. Check with your local authorities. widening
a driveway entrance by using driveway pavers can significantly improve
your design in both appearance and practicality. For driveway pavers
installation, the removal of asphalt is sometimes best done by
excavating contractors who have the equipment and the permits for
disposal. Use your manpower for actual installation.
Unilock brick pavers are manufactured in a variety of shapes and colors
for residential, commercial, municipal and industrial applications. The
brick pavers offer Engineers, Architects, Landscape Architects and
Planners several engineered placing systems that are durable,
economical and ascetically attractive. The systems also lend themselves
to a multitude of design applications. Unilock brick pavers are
manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances. This, in combination with
their interlocking capabilities, allows the surface to act as a total
membrane with a high resistance to compressive loads and lateral
forces.

Edge restraints are a critical element to the durability of flagstone flooring
installation. They prevent the flagstone from moving and shifting over
time. Unilock® offers several options for restraint. Unilock’s own
plastic Edge Restraint is both economical and effective. Various concrete
edging materials also work well with the added benefit of complementing
the flagstone flooring with color and texture.
UNILOCK interlocking pavers are generally composed of a surface
consisting of precast modular concrete units of varying shapes, colours
and texture, placed over a graded sand base and interlocked with
bedding and joint sand, which can be constructed over a variety of
subbases. The concept dates back to the roads of the Roman Empire, and
was refined after the Second World War in Europe. The modern concept of
high quality, precision manufactured concrete pavers has resulted in
the construction of millions of square metres of interlocking pavers
constructed each year in Europe, and an expanding market in
North America.

Due to the segmental nature of the pavement, concrete interlocking pavers
can articulate under applied loads, much like flexible
pavements. Unlike flexible pavements, the interlocking nature of the
pavements increases significantly under traffic. Conventional flexible
pavement design and construction methods have been easily adapted to
the concept of concrete interlocking pavers.
The paving block dates back to Roman times when hand-hewn granite and limestone blocks were installed in roads frequently used by horses and chariots.Even in areas where hand-hewn stones were not available or affordable, natural paving stones were placed in the roads and the joints filled with clay. Today, a paving block is used in many applications where conventional paving materials do not provide the performance that paving blocks do.

Paving block textures include smooth, rough, brushed, tumbled, dimpled,
exposed aggregate, and hand hewn. Walls come split-faced, tumbled and
natural pre-cast. Unilock's standard color palette consists of over 40
paving block and wall colors which, when quantities permit, may be
augmented using custome pigment mixes. Original color and texture
effects can be produced by using specialized products that incorporate
premium aggregates. These products may be further customized through a variety of finishing techniques for highly distinctive design
approaches.
For the installation of patio pavers, you first must determine what
equipment is required before the job starts so that you will have the
right tool for the right job. Remember, many types of equipment can be
rented and larger tools such as loaders or mini- excavators can be
delivered to the jobsite. Marking out all the areas for excavation with
string lines or paint will make it easier for all who are working on
the job to understand the scope of the project.

Set measurements and stakes with one other crew person as a
"double-check". Changes sometimes need to be made from the original
plan due to certain site issues not encountered on the drafting board.
Always be prepared to make some on-site changes.
Unilock is North America’s leader in the manufacturing of industrial

almost any architecture. Interlocking concrete pavers can be installed

designs, and add vitality to almost any environment.
