Paving slabs of various types
Paving slabs in Lugansk. Paving slabs are one of the oldest materials in the world. Even in ancient times, entire road networks were laid out of stones of a specially selected shape or processed to a certain shape. A little over a hundred years ago, whole streets and quarters of large and small cities were paved from paving stones. To date, paving slabs have undergone some changes, both in manufacturing technology and in appearance, a variety of colors, sizes, and types.
Manufacturing method – VIBRATED. What he really is ?
Fine-grained concrete mixture (cement, fine gravel, plasticizer, slag, water, sand) after thorough mixing is placed in a plastic mold, which is placed on a vibrating table. The vibrating table constantly vibrates and the form is on it for some time after pouring, for the final shrinkage of the mixture and removal of air bubbles from the front surface of the future tile. After this procedure, the molds are removed and placed in a special room for drying. The tile gains its first strength during the day, then after 72 hours the tile is suitable for transportation and neat installation. Concrete products gain full strength in 25 – 28 days or more after manufacture.

Technology for the production of paving slabs by volumetric pressing
This method consists in the formation of concrete products with the help of vibrocompaction of a mixture with a low water content and the obligatory subsequent pressure of the forming punch. Production takes place on specialized vibropresses that are installed permanently.
Interesting facts about paving slabs, a bit of history
The very first mention of paving slabs comes from Holland in the early 19th century. Due to the shortage of natural raw materials in Holland (and buying it was expensive), Dutch craftsmen developed a technology for making paving slabs from concrete mix. The volume made was enough to lay the trade route from Amsterdam to Harlem. The road has become very convenient and practical. A little later, this technology began to be used everywhere. Other states of Europe have mastered the example of road paving in Holland. Over time, the technology has reached popularity in the United States of America and other countries spreading around the world.
- The first paved roads were made 2-3 thousand years ago BC, by the most ancient civilization of Mesopotamia. The manufacturing method included firing bricks on fire and paved the roads. A little later, in ancient Babylon, a road was made with square tiles. Along the edges, it was faced with burnt bricks. This road was 24 meters wide!
- Good quality vibropressed paving slabs can last at least 40 years or more. If necessary, it is possible to carry out repairs / re-laying, both the tile itself and the communications that are under the tile itself. in this case, you can always disassemble, and then assemble any section of the tile after the repair work is completed.
- In today’s Holland, there are machines for laying paving slabs. One such machine is capable of laying up to 300 squares of tiles per shift.

We must not forget about the supply of material for trimming and possible nuances when laying tiles! The stock of tiles can be from 3 to 10% of the total purchase volume. The exact amount of stock depends on the type of tile, installation method or method, paving pattern.
Interesting facts about paving slabs
It is quite important NOT to use abrasive products when cleaning the surface of paving slabs. (metal brushes, scrapers, crowbars, metal shovels) they can damage the surface of the tile. Aggressive cleaners and detergents can adversely affect the top layer of the tile, which contains the coloring pigment used in the production of paving slabs. You can wash the tiles with water pressure, and remove snow with a plastic or wooden shovel. In the warm season, care is not difficult.
