What are driveway pavers?
As the name suggests, Driveway pavers are the pavers used along and directly on your driveway. Driveway pavers have become increasingly popular due to their visual appeal and longevity.
The benefits of driveway pavers go beyond just their attractiveness in setting the scene at the front of your home. Driveway pavers have a longer lifespan than cheaper traditional methods used on driveways such as crushed granite or gravel and even coloured or stencilled concrete. This is due to their strength and tested durability.
MD Brick can supply you with driveway pavers in a variety of materials, however, the most suitable types are clay, concrete and granite cobbles.
How to select the right driveway pavers?
To make the best decision when choosing your driveway pavers, MD Brick recommends you consider the following important points.
- First and foremost, think about how much vehicle weight and traffic will your driveway have? Your driveway pavers need to be a minimum thickness of 50mm to be suitable for carrying Light Vehicle traffic. Light vehicles (LV) are vehicles which, when fully loaded, have a gross weight of less than 3 tonnes. This category includes cars, utilities, delivery vans and some light 2-axle trucks.
- Water and rain conditions may also affect the pavers you choose. Take note of the slip resistance and gradient of your driveway to choose the best possible driveway pavers.
- Clay, concrete and natural stone pavers are all suitable for driveways as they contain a very high density and overall compressive strength.
- Permeable pavers are also a good choice for driveways. These pavers are designed to filter and drain water away from the driveway.
Interlocking pavers are also a great choice for driveway pavers as they have a high compressive strength and their shape allows for less turning and movement.
