While many human and surface characteristics influence slip resistance, Pacific Interlocks manufacturing process creates pavers that exceed the design standards issued by the Dept of Transportation (DOT) and the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). FOR PEDESTRIANS: Pavers have high sand and cement content that contribute to high friction coefficients for walkways and ramps. [...]
Initially, some water will seep into the joint sand for the first few weeks but soon silts and dust in the air will fill any voids and water will then shed off the paver surface just like any other pavement. During installation a slope (or fall) needs to be designed into the base course of [...]
Pacific Interlock has service available through Pacific Transfer to deliver the pallets to the job location. Most of the trucks are flatbed units that carry 16 pallets per load. There is also a specialty truck for those locations with limited accessibility that can break down into smaller loads and fit into tight places, however, it [...]
60mm pavers generally weigh 27 lbs/sf irrespective of shape and size. The different shapes change how much square footage will fit safely on a pallet so the weight varies for each profile. Most pallets are over a ton, averaging 2650 lbs. Please contact the office for the correct weight for the desired paver profile.
Most of Pacific Interlock pavers are the standard 60mm (2 3/8 in). We also have beautiful, large Patio Stones that are 70mm (2 3/4 in). For industrial needs we have several pavers available in 80mm (3 1/8 in).
For long-lasting, durable colors, Pacific Interlock stones are saturated with color throughout – not a topcoat. To do this, we blend pure pigment into our special concrete mixture, using only the finest material. The normal wear and weathering may appear to change the color over time. Cleaning and sealing may restore and enhance color.
Making repairs beneath the pavers will be like replacing a damaged paver. Remove the pavers necessary to make repairs to water lines, electrical conduits, etc. When refilling the base rock remember to compact it firmly just like during the original installation. Screed some bedding sand and re-install pavers. Be sure to replace the joint sand [...]
Yes. Being able to do this makes pavers the obvious choice for maintaining a beautiful project. We recommend that you save a few pavers from your initial installation, just in case you need to replace one or two. Pavers normally can be pried out using two flathead screwdrivers then carefully reset the new stone with [...]
This white stuff is known as efflorescence. All concrete products contain cement which produces lime or water soluble calcium oxide. Lime can also be in the bedding sand, aggregate base materials, or soil. Moisture from rain, sprinkler systems, underground sources, poor site drainage or dew enters the microscopic capillaries that run from the interior to [...]
