This could be used for leveling and aligning Pavers or sand
Rubber hammer for tapping blocks without damaging the surface
Plate vibrator for final compaction with two to three paves of the plate.
Organise all materials like blocks, sand, vibrators and cutter
Plan your schedule to avoid delivery of materials before they are needed as they congest the site.
Keep the sand with moisture content; do not use sand which is 100% dry.
Do not spread sand for larger areas, as it will dry out and reduce the performance.
Preferably, use sand of 50mm screeded properly.
Pavers should be laid with hand tight to pattern on screeded layer of 50mm sand bed.
Complete laying operations like cutting, vibrating and joint filling (with sand) are to be done on the same day. It is important to note that the laying operations should not be done on a piecemeal basis. It should be completed in all aspects on the same day.
Joints should be filled with clean dry sand, so that it flows better and fills joints effectively.
Edge Curbing: There should be adequate restraint around the perimeter of all paved area to support traffic loads and to prevent the escape of laying course material from beneath the paved surface.
It is recommended to provide a slope of 3” on the wider side and 2” on the linear side for every 10’ of laying area.
