Clay Pavers - Easy Laying Guide
- A good foundation is essential. You must first consider the soil conditions, sufficient surface water
drainage, and traffic usage for the area where the Clayon pavers will be laid.
- All the edges of the foundation must be restrained with the use of Clayon bull-nose, walls, concrete kerbs, existing paving or other suitable materials.
- A layer of loose sand (about 4cm thick) must be spread evenly over the foundation with an allowance
of 1cm for compacting.
- You can now start laying your Clayon pavers on the foundation. Make sure that each unit is
carefully locked to each other; no cement or mortar is needed for this. At this point, you can cut
and trim the pavers to fit if necessary.
- f your paved area is large, you are advised to use a sheet of plywood between vibrator and pavers
for compacting while a rubber mallet and a block of wood will be enough for smaller areas.
- The gaps between the pavers should now be filled with dry fine sand and there should be no sand left
on top of the pavers.
- The work of paving is now complete. It's easy, isn't it?
