  • New for 2010

    Posted on January 15, 2010 by Simply Paving

    This is one of the most exciting times of the year for us here at Simply Paving, the launch of the new brochures and for most of us, a first glimpse of the new products for the upcoming season.

    Both Bradstone and StoneFlair look to have been busy developing new lines and there really are some stunning products available in 2010...

    One particularly eye-catching product is Bradstone's New Panache an exciting addition to their already established Panache paving range, New Panache takes style to a new level with its contemporary colours, not to mention a surface that sparkles in the sunlight.

    New Panache arrives with three shades White, Black and Silver Grey each with two finishes, Ground and Textured allowing for endless design possibilities and guaranteed individuality.

    New Panache also comes coated with Bradstone's surface protection to ease cleaning and boasts excellent eco-credentials with its high recycled content of 83% for the White shade and 64% in the Black and Silver Grey.

    StoneFlair have launched an equally stylish product for 2010, Purestone Waddington Fell, with very reassuring eco-credentials of its own.

    With its soft subtle hues, smooth even surface and sawn edges, the British sourced Purestone Waddington Fell is a beautiful looking and stylish natural sandstone patio paving slab, sure to enhance any patio or garden design. But it’s more than just a pretty face.

    In fact, Purestone Waddington Fell has achieved a world first: it’s the only certified responsibly sourced natural stone anywhere on the planet. It’s your assurance that the stone has been produced in a totally ethical and responsible manner, with the impact of operations minimised during the process.

    StoneFlair have also made an exciting addition to the very popular Yorkvale range with Yorkvale EcoPave, an authentic yet cost-effective alternative to natural stone, manufactured using up to 85% recycled aggregate to offer the eco gardener a genuinely sustainable product. As StoneFlair state "Past inspiration, environmental consideration".

    In addition to these superb new patio products, there are a number of new domestic driveway products available in 2010. Many of these products are 65mm-80mm so are also suitable for commercial applications.

    These include Bradstone's Parliament block paving with glinting highlights of exposed granite and complementary shades for stunning effect.

    Why not take a look at the elegant but durable Bradstone Vianova, a contemporary polished block paving containing the highest quality basalt and granite aggregate, or if it's a more traditional feel that you're after try Bradstone's EcoPave, with exposed Cornish granite aggregate providing a subtle sparkle and a weathered appearance for visual appeal coupled with eco-credentials.

    Also new to the Bradstone block paving range are Andover Textured and Andover Washed. Available in Charcoal, Cream and Silver Grey shades, Cornish aggregate gives Andover Textured a finely textured quality finish. Whilst Andover Washed is a premium quality paving block containing at least 50% recycled materials and gives a more understated contemporary finish. Subtly textured, try combining both of the complementary shades of Anthracite Charcoal and Silver Grey for stunning effect.

    Finally, why not have a truly "green" driveway, with the launch of Bradstone's superb Grassgrid, with over 50% recycled content, Grassgrid block paving combines natural looking hard standing areas for vehicles with great green credentials.

    All in all, there are some very impressive products on offer for 2010, if you'd like more information on these or any of our other products, check out our website or contact the office on 0800 032 6306.
