Hanson Formpave Move Streets Ahead with New Pavers for Machine Laying
Coleford, Gloucestershire - 21st April 2009 - Hanson Formpave, manufacturers of specialist concrete paving products, has launched the Aquaflow ML45 and Royal Forrest ML45 rectangular blocks that are ideal for the machine laying process. Following significant investment from Hanson Formpave and in response to market demand, the new optimised designs allow the block paving to be laid by a specialist machine guaranteeing quality, accuracy, speed and reducing the requirement for manual labour.
Machine laying block paving is fast becoming the most practical solution for installing paving on larger sites, such as surfacing streets and roads. The ability to install vast amounts of product without a large workforce onsite, therefore reducing the health and safety regulation requirements, is of huge benefit for numerous projects.
Hanson Formpave’s new block design allows the efficient installation of rectangular paving in the 45 degree herringbone pattern and is available in a vast range of colours. It is delivered in pallets with 64 pavers per layer and 7 layers per pack. Each layer is lifted from the pallet and placed as a complete panel. The entire laying process is only a two-person operation.
“In response to our continuing market research and product development, we are pleased to offer a total solution for machine laying block paving,” said Steve Spikes, development director at Hanson Formpave. “Manufactured in our new state of the art production plant at Whittelsey, the investment in the machinery and the continual development of our product portfolio illustrates the company’s dedication to providing customers with the complete paving package.”
