The laying course uses Bradstone Bedding Aggregate, a 6mm angular, open graded material. Unlike normal bedding sand, it is free draining and therefore it does not require any control on moisture content.
The laying course should be 50mm thick, rather than 30mm for conventional paving and it is not compacted before the blocks are laid. Once laid, and prior to jointing, a light pass over with a whacker plate with a rubber mat is required.
The preparation and levelling of the bedding surface is critical as an aggregate bedding layer will not be compacted as with conventional block paving.
Laid to a depth of 50mm 1 bulk bag covers 13m2.
Deliveries normally occur between 7am and 6pm. Once your order has been placed you will be contacted and provided with an exact date of delivery.
This vehicle will lower the product to the ground using an electric lift. The pallet of products is then pulled off using a manual pallet truck. It is imperative that the ground that the pallet is unloaded onto is flat and solid. Access may be needed for a rigid lorry (up to 20ft) otherwise additional delivery charges may be made. For larger orders alternative delivery methods can be arranged. Please call our office to discuss any delivery requirements or for clarification.
