Their PSI ratings demonstrate a higher degree of resilience and durability in extreme conditions than concrete, brick or other outdoor paving alternatives. Natural stone pavers are also the perfect solution for tropical, humid climates. Not only are they able to withstand extreme heat without as much as a crack, their natural coolness provides a satisfying walking surface for bare feet. Plus, they naturally repel mold and mildew; so you will never have to fuss with messy bleach solutions.
Durable: Classic Stone Pavers are stronger than poured concrete or asphalt, with no surface cracking.
Valuable: Classic Stone Pavers add value through their visual appeal and durability.
Reusable: Classic Stone Pavers can be laid, removed and replaced with ease.
Environmentally friendly: Unlike artificial materials, natural stone is a 100% natural-earth product containing no additives.
Resistance to Rapid Freezing & Thawing
The stones were subjected to 125 cycles of rapid freezing and thawing in order to test their ability to resist cracking under harsh weather conditions. Tests were in accordance with ASTM C 666.
Results of Inspection: Compression Strength
The stones have sustained rigorous testing in order to determine their ability to withstand pressure. Results are measured in PSI (pounds per square inch). Tests were in accordance with ASTM C 170.
