Canterra® flagstones

SUBTLY EMBOSSED, CLOSED-FACE FLAGSTONES

The lightly embossed surface of Canterra® flagstones provides a close match for natural stone such as Caithness or flame-textured granite, making them ideal for conservation areas and traditional architectural schemes. Their brushed semi-sheen appearance is the result of a unique ‘curling’ process which creates an unusually closed face – meaning that besides looking absolutely stunning in situ, they’re much easier to clean and maintain than traditional flagstones. This also makes them great for internal applications. Canterra® flagstones contain granite aggregates to make them extremely durable – it’s a product that gives architects all the benefits of natural stone, with none of the downsides.

Granaza flagstones

SUBTLY TEXTURED GRANITE FLAGSTONES

Granaza is AG’s newest range of quality, granite-textured flagstones. They feature a softer texture to their finish and are ideal for both contemporary projects and traditionally-styled schemes such as housing developments. Granaza flagstones are made with a high content of quality aggregates, including granite and quartz, which gives them an appealing ‘sparkle’ in bright sunlight and a premium appearance that belies their price point. Manufactured in the same factory as our Canterra® range, Granaza flags use the same state-of-the-art production processes to create a durable, hard-wearing product with excellent slip resistance.

River Stone paving blocks

THIN JOINTED, UNDULATED PAVING BLOCKS

The River Stone block paving system is characterised by its clean edges, thin joints and unique ripples that beautifully present the soft sparkle of granite and quartz. It’s a dramatic replacement for traditional cobbles or smooth paving that uses a unique emboss to present a close analog to natural stone. Available in three standard sizes and a pre-packed three size mix, River Stone is produced in three distinctive colour blends which each have a subtle colour mix to produce understated colour variations between blocks.

Country Cobble® paving blocks

TRADITIONAL RUMBLED PAVING BLOCKS

Country Cobble® paving is perfect for both contemporary and traditional hard landscaping schemes. Our bespoke rumbling process fully distresses the block, to give a much more authentic reclaimed cobbled effect compared to antiquing systems or products produced without secondary processing. The effect is further enhanced with a subtle colour mix to achieve shade differences between blocks, which works well in both traditional and contemporary settings. Country Cobble® is available in six colour ranges and various sizes, permitting a range of laying patterns to complement your project.

Permeable Paving

PERMEABLE SOLUTIONS Assessment + Solution of the Problem Increasing intensity of rainfall, ever expanding areas of hard landscaping and inadequate infrastructural drainage have all led to increased risk of flooding. The answer is SUDS or Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, a simple concept to allow the evacuation of water through the surface, preventing ponding and reducing the risk of flooding and pollution.

There are several SUDS designs: • Concrete Permeable Paving • Filter Strips + Swales • Green Roofs • Basin + Wetlands • Infiltration Devices By choosing a permeable paving design there is a significant increase in securing planning approval and reducing costs for the entire project. AG offer a full design advice service with our experienced SUDS Engineers, using our unique high speed flow Xflo® range of permeable paving which suits any type of project.

The three key elements of permeable paving design.

MEETS DESIGN REQUIREMENTS FOR PERMEABILITY AND DETENTION AG Xflo® Permeable Paving systems meets and exceeds the design requirements for the evacuation and detention of surface water into the cleaned angular aggregate storage area below.

REMOVING POLLUTANTS The clean washed angular aggregates are an excellent filtration method causing natural absorption, and aerobic and biodegradable actions. Each layer should allow the movement of water whilst providing structural interlocking of the system.

PERFORMANCE AG.UK.COM

All permeable paving systems must improve the local environment by ensuring the design is suited to the subgrade of the location, that it has capacity to store water and finally that it meets the expected traffic loads.


Section 5

Permeable Paving

Introduction

Permeable Paving

KEY PERFORMANCE COMPONENTS OF PERMEABLE PAVING DESIGNS.

Paving Units + Jointing Grit

Transition + Drainage Layers

AG have a wide range of Xflo® profiles which have a high speed flow rate of 4000mm/hr/m2. The unique high speed flow spacers of Xflo® must be fully jointed with BS EN 7533-13:2009 / BS EN 13242:2013 approved 2-6mm grit. Joint widths in permeable paving must be sufficiently wide (7mm) to ensure the grit penetrates top to bottom.

These layers must be BS EN 7533-13:2009 / BS EN 13242:2013 clean washed angular coarse graded aggregate with the transfer / transition layer being 4/20mm material and the drainage / main sub base layer being 4/40mm stone. It is essential to the system’s performance that all aggregate adheres to the BS EN criteria as this ensures sufficient drainage, pollution control and effective interlocking structural performance.

Bedding Layer The bedding layer in most permeable paving designs is generally 50mm of BS EN 7533-13:2009 / BS EN 13242:2013 approved 2-6mm grit identical to the jointing grit. In the majority of designs the depth of this layer is 50mm.

Sub-grade The structural and permeable quality of the sub-grade soil is a key driver of the type of design selected. If full or partial infiltration is possible then designers should look to Systems A or B. If the sub-grade is non-permeable then SUDS engineers will always use System C, which is full attenuation. See the following pages for diagrams and design concepts.

All information provided by AG on permeable paving is in no way site specific and must be verified by a qualified expert in SUDS design. AG will not accept any liability attributed to the information included in this section.


Flagstones + Paving + Kerbs + Steps Specification Guide

Permeable Paving

DESIGN ADVICE + CONCEPTS Permeability / strength of sub-grade There are three common designs which you can choose when assessing the quality of the sub-grade section of the site. To test for permeability and strength engineers look to the results of the CBR (California Bearing Ratio) and the BRE 365 tests.

Please note: the following are concept designs only.

System A Infiltration It is recognised that total infiltration is generally the preferred design option and should be utilised as a source of control wherever possible.

DESIGN ADVICE + CONCEPTS Traffic Loading Tables The chart below lists expected traffic loadings associated with various types of development. Where the CBR of the sub-grade is below 5% then a capping layer needs to be considered to provide a suitable platform. This structural layer can also be used to withstand construction traffic during the build phase and provide a stable surface for the stone. If the CBR is greater than 5% then a capping layer is not required.

DESIGN ADVICE + CONCEPTS Typical Designs The following information is provided by way of guidance only and is not site specific: the designs here are designed in conjunction with the Traffic Loading Tables. Please note they do not take into account factors such as the permeability or structural quality of the sub-grade. These concept drawings can be used in early feasibility stage to indicate if permeable paving is required.

Systems A + B Infiltration Designs The Infiltration system allows for the rapid evacuation of surface water through the paving joints. The design allows the water to travel slowly through the crushed stone through the filtering permeable geotextile before being released back into the sub-grade. In a partial infiltration system a calculated volume of water may need to be assisted away from site via a perforated drain system.

Permeable Paving

DESIGN ISSUES TO CONSIDER

Impermeable + Permeable Zones Draining Impermeable Areas Draining impermeable areas onto permeable areas is common in commercial projects. This would apply in attenuation designs and the sub-base depth should be increased in the ratio of a max 2:1 ratio between impermeable and permeable zones. In the design phase it is essential to ensure a sunken / flush barrier separates the paving and asphalt to prevent movement of paving caused by the pressure exerted from the stopping motion of vehicles.

Falls on Sites In the majority of projects a fall in levels is a common occurrence, this gradient must be taken into account in the design stage. Any fall has the potential to allow water to move too quickly to the lowest level on the site and re-appear up through the paving joints. To reduce the effects of any fall the designer will install ballasts within the stone detail.

Turning Areas / Cul De Sacs / Stop Zones In any of the above areas care must be taken in the design phase to ensure certain critical issues are addressed.

150 | 151

Any location where there is turning or stopping of vehicles has the potential to apply excess pressure on the paving surface from both the front and rear axles. It is essential that the boundary support beneath the paving is sufficient to bear this pressure.

INSTALLATION ADVICE

Permeable Paving Design

Installation notes

AG recommends that its Xflo® products be installed in conjunction with a BS EN 7533-13:2009 designed permeable paving systems. Independent expert advice should be sought if other designs are considered. Blocks should be plate vibrated before the joints are filled.

Paving to be installed to BS7533-3:2005, joints to be filled to top and topped up after several weeks. Care to be taken with soft landscaping to prevent joint blockage.

AG will design a full permeable specification which will be guaranteed in writing.

Bedding Layer Design Blocks should be laid on 2-6mm grit to BS EN 13242:2002 (1 ton of 6mm grit will cover 10m2 at depths of 50mm). The bedding layer should be screeded over the 4/20mm stone layer, an upper geotextile layer can be installed here if required.

Jointing Aggregate Blocks should be jointed with 2-6mm grit to BS EN 13242:2002 (1 ton of grit will joint 100m2 of 80mm paving). All joints must be fully filled to ensure structural stability of the paving units.

Sub Base Aggregates Clean washed 4-20mm and 4-40mm coarse graded angular aggregates to BE EN 13242:2002 are required in specified depths according to design requirements. This stone should be vibrated or rolled to ensure sufficient compaction rates are achieved.

Important Aggregate Information Aggregate should conform to BS EN 13242:2002 and categorised as LA20 according to Table 9, SZ18 on Table 10 and MDE15 on Table 11. All permeable paving systems rely heavily on the correct design and aggregate use – design advice is available from AG.

Maintenance Initial Cleaning The paved area needs to be allowed to settle for several weeks – after this time it can be lightly cleaned with a hose or low pressure wash. If required a weed killer suppressant can be applied once a year, ensuring the manufacturer’s instructions are followed. Cleaning Joints Over time joints may become clogged due to general everyday use, it may be necessary to clean them using the following methods: 1. High pressure water jet to clean any dirt in joint. Examine areas for displaced pavers and reset to line. 2. Brush 2-6mm grit into joints ensuring they are filled top to bottom. 3. Vacuum sweepers if used excessively may remove loose jointing grit over time. General Dirt / Grime All paving will need a regular maintenance programme to ensure longevity, colour and performance. Regular brushing to reduce the buildup of surface material on the face and the joints is essential. If required, a light powered hose will be sufficient to remove any general dirt and grime. For more aggressive staining such as oil or tyre marks please refer to the AG website for detailed cleaning information.

Xflo® permeable paving blocks

STANDARD + GRANITE SURFACED, HIGH SPEED FLOW, PERMEABLE PAVING BLOCKS

Xflo® is a highly effective, sustainable method of dealing with storm water control. Increased rainfall and unchecked urban development frequently leave conventional storm water drainage systems unable to cope – resulting in severe surface flooding following periods of intense rainfall. SUDS (sustainable drainage systems) such as AG’s Xflo® permeable paving solutions are designed to mimic the natural movement of storm water and replace conventional storm water drainage systems. Our Xflo® range has been specially developed to provide the construction market with the drainage performance required without compromising on aesthetics – Xflo® is available in an extensive range of paving finishes and unit sizes.

Bullnose Kerb Setts kerbs

PREMIUM SMOOTH + RUMBLED KERB SETTS

Bullnose Kerb Setts are available in a range of attractive colours and two finishes to complement or contrast with our full range of paving and flag products. The smooth variant has a contemporary appearance that pairs well with Boulevard®, Rectangular and TerraPave® flags, while the traditional weathered appearance of the rumbled finish is a good match for Country Cobble® paving. Tough enough for both commercial and domestic settings, Bullnose Kerb Setts are dimensionally accurate and easily maintained. They can be used for both high and low rise settings, used as a surround and riser for steps, and are suitable for curved areas. A full range of matching corner units is also available.

Mile Stone kerbs

PREMIUM RUMBLED UNITS FOR KERBING + WALLING

Mile Stone has a charming weathered appearance and is ideal when forming steps, small walls and raised areas. Available in colours that complement or contrast our full range of paving and flags, Mile Stone is an ideal choice when building small walls up to 0.6m (2ft) in height. Mile Stone is extremely popular with layers and building contractors – it can be used for decorative kerbing around driveways, paths and as dwarf walls and upstands to give definition to planted areas. It’s also perfect as a surround and riser for steps.

STEP TECHNICAL GUIDANCE Designing Steps Step details are fast becoming more important in all projects, both in terms of visual appeal and, more importantly, safety. AG have been supplying step products for many years and through investment continue to find new and innovative concrete solutions in this area. When designing external step details designers need to refer to UK Building Regulations Part M 2004 or Ireland Building Regulations TGD M 2010, Part M Access and Use which detail what is required for compliance. Additional guidance may be taken from the Design of Buildings and Approaches to meet the needs of disabled people BS 8300 2009: “Those involved in the design and construction of a building may be required by the relevant building authority to provide such evidence as is necessary to establish that the requirements of the Building Regulations are being complied with”.

Hazard Warning Locations Part M of the Building Regulations gives guidance on the use of hazard warning flags to facilitate the safety of persons with impaired vision when approaching changing levels in stepped areas. The use of a corduroy hazard warning surface is a requirement that must be installed at both the top and bottom landing areas to provide advance notice of a change in levels. The hazard warning landing area when approached straight must be 800mm and setback 400mm from the front edge of the steps whilst extending 400mm either side of the actual step width. Step Dimensions of Tread + Riser In line with Part M, the dimensions of step details are generally consistent with the rise of each step measuring between 150mm and 170mm whilst the tread is between 280mm and 450mm. These dimensions give consistency to all users thereby reducing the injury risks associated with step details. Visual Contrast Strips Part M of Building Regulations states that “all nosings are made apparent by means of a permanent contrasting material 55mm wide on both tread and rise”. When ascending or descending a flight of stairs the ability to distinguish between the individual treads and risers is essential, particularly for those who are partially sighted. Contrasting strips of a slip resistant material must be inserted along the full width of the steps both on the tread and riser. The inserted strips should ideally measure 55mm in width and set-back 35mm from the front of the step on the tread and 35mm from the top of the riser. Slip / Skid Risk Safety underfoot and reducing the risk of slip / skid is as important for step details as it is for paved areas. AG provide a full range of step details which have a low slip / skid risk and comply with all the various testing procedures including PTV, USRV and R rating. All flags within the range including the TerraPave® Ground surfaces are suitable for use in locations of changing levels. Contact AG Specification Department for further information. See slip / skid information for more detail. LRV – Light Reflective Values

AG.UK.COM

LRV is the total quantity of visible light reflected by a surface at all wavelengths and directions when illuminated by a visible light source. For persons with adequate vision, differences in the nature or the intensity of colour provide enough visual contrast. Unfortunately

this is not the case for all people who are visually impaired. The main feature of a surface which appears to be strongly correlated with the ability of visually impaired people to identify differences in colour is the LRV. Differences in LRV can be used to assess the degree of visual contrast between surfaces of paving, walling, masonry and any surrounding surface. LRV is scaled from 0, which is deemed absorbing and could be assumed to be totally black, up to 100 which may be reflective and perfectively white. For the purposes of practical influence in any application black is always greater than 0 and white never equals 100. To comply, in most cases, a difference of more than 30 points or more allows a degree of variability to provide reasonable visual contrast. This visual contrast and compliance with Part M is achieved when the difference in LRV is greater than 30 points. AG have a large selection of paving units and step details tested which comply with Part M of Building Regulations. Solar Reflectance Values Solar reflectance is becoming increasingly common in paving specification and AG have conducted extensive testing on all products. Guidelines on acceptable levels of solar reflectance index state that a product must have a SRI (Solar Reflective Index) of greater than 29 to be acceptable. In explaining SRV we can refer to the following: A heat island is a local area of elevated temperature in a region of cooler temperatures. The heat island usually occurs in urban areas; hence they are sometimes called urban heat islands. An urban heat island occurs when built-up areas are warmer than the surrounding environment. Heat islands occur where there is a preponderance of dark exterior building materials and lack of vegetation. Materials with low solar reflectance (generally dark materials) absorb heat from the sun, and materials with higher solar reflectance (generally light-coloured materials) reflect heat from the sun and do not warm the air relative to the surrounding areas as much. In hard landscaping this effect can be seen and felt where dark coloured paving is installed, especially in an enclosed space with direct sunlight and no cooling winds (e.g. enclosed courtyards in modern buildings). AG have conducted a series of SRI tests on their coloured paving units and can advise on correct specification where needed.

COMPLEMENTARY PRODUCTS AG can supply a number of complementary paving products for the industry, which include recessed manholes, decorative gravel, spacers, pedestals and jointing sand.

Spacers It is important to use these with flags where no spacer nibs are incorporated into the product. Spacers ensure accurate joint width and protection from damage due to product contact. Various sizes can be provided to special order.

Pedestals Pedestal systems are designed to support paving products on roof terraces, roof gardens, platforms and other raised areas. They resolve an array of design issues, from protecting waterproof membranes, to disguising exposed surfaces, to providing a usable roof deck. Pedestals are available in heights up to approximately 600mm. Please contact our Technical Department to discuss your plans.

Recessed Manhole Covers Hide unsightly concrete or aluminium manhole lids. Recessed manhole lids can be used with the full paving and flags range, available in sizes 450x450mm and 450x600mm.

Decorative Gravel Creggan Blend is a combination of pink and grey gravel which can enhance any garden setting or driveway.

Jointing Sand An essential part of any flexible pavement. Specially selected for its quality grading, kiln dried sand is provided in 25kg bags. Silver granite flagging sand is also available to complement our paving and flags range. AG.UK.COM

MACHINE LAY Lay 300m2 per machine per day

Within the industry there’s growing pressure on contract programmes. More than ever, speed is of the essence. As a result, the safe, effective, streamlining of paving operations is now a real priority. Due to recent major advances in machine laying, this method is now becoming widely used. In fact, machine laying has now demonstrated its competitive advantages in terms of cost and productivity. As only dry construction components are involved, installation can take place in almost all weather conditions. Completed areas are ready for immediate use, with no curing times.

• Typical laying rates of 300m2 per machine per day can be achieved depending on site conditions, rising to exceptionally high rates when several machines are working in unison. • Cost effective with a highly durable finish. • Area available immediately after completion with no curing times. • Suitable for straightforward runs over 600m2. • Retrospective services can be put into a paved area and paving re-instated without ‘scarring’ the aesthetics of the surface area.

The Health and Safety Executive quote on the subject of “Pedestrian Slip Risks” – a combination of the following are the main factors, which effects slip resistance: • Contamination (oils, rubber etc.). • Type of footwear (rubber, leather). • Pedestrian factors (e.g. volume, mobility). • Cleaning and maintenance (regular chemical cleaning). • External environment (algae, leaves etc.). • Gradient – ramps and slopes. The above factors are outside AG’s control, and we cannot accept liability for these factors. It is the responsibility of the engineer / architect or customer to do a risk assessment of the specific site conditions before deciding on the suitability of a product.

Results AG under our product certification, regularly test our flags to the above standard, to which we comply with the following: • Competent trained personnel: our technicians are trained by Pendulum test equipment manufacturers in UK (Wessex Engineering). Certificates are available on request. • Pendulum test machine is calibrated by Wessex Engineering annually (certification available). • Test rubbers are certified for use by Wessex Engineering. (certification available)

Ground Flags Low Slip / Skid Risk Where AG TerraPave® flags are recommended on level ground with standard rain water runoff, they are classified as moderate potential for slip. Regular testing indicates we achieve an average PTV value for wet conditions ranging between 36 and 51 for flags on installation. This is commensurate with flags achieving a high degree of finish.

Textured / Smooth Paving + Flags Low Slip / Skid Risk AG TerraPave® Textured, Caliza Textured and textured and smooth concrete block paving units and flags are suitable for level ground and ramps, they are also are specified as extremely low potential. However it should be noted that regular testing indicates a much higher value: A PTV value for wet conditions ranging 60 – 75 is achieved for flags/units on installation. This would be commensurate with flags having a textured finish, however reference should be made in conjunction the guidelines above. Flags / units not under wet conditions show a significant increase in PTV value. Increasing Slip Resistance AG can recommend an independent specialist company who can implement a non-slip application, build in maintenance and test program – which is completed in situ after installation.

CHAMFERS + SAFETY UNDERFOOT Safety concerns are covered by our chamfer design

Manufacture In line with safe specification, AG are consistently updating our product range to ensure that all paving and flagstones meet required standards for slip / skid risk, trolley noise reduction and chamfer widths under high heeled footwear. In line with industry standards we ensure the joint widths of our paving and flags are well documented and within tolerance. Where paving has a wider than normal joint (permeable paving) or a particular fettled edge, then AG will stress this point in the specification.

In most circumstances, AG paving and flags will have chamfers creating joint widths ranging between 3 and 5mm on all products. This ensures there is safe footing for thin heeled shoes which normally have minimum widths of 10mm square. In the following photo example we used three different variations of thin heel shoes above the chamfer and joint of an AG flag. All heels cover and exceed the distance created by the chamfer.

2 to 6mm space

AG flagstones chamfer width creates a 2 to 6mm space, thin heel shoes usually measure minimum 5 to 10mm. Based on this, AG are happy that the chamfer and space created when the flags are placed tight together in a dry laid situation will be safe underfoot for most shoe types. If in the event this is still an issue, AG can offer a select range of flags which will not have a chamfer and therefore will create a thin line joint. However such products may create additional waste on site as chipping can occasionally occur if flags are knocked together during installation.

MAINTENANCE GUIDANCE Paving and flagstones should be regularly brushed with a stiff non-metal brush to prevent a build-up of dirt. We also advise a more substantial clean two or three times a year, especially during spring and autumn.

General Wear Newly completed areas of paving or flagstones should only receive a light brushing in the first few months to allow joints to settle naturally. From then on, general maintenance should be carried out regularly.

Maintenance of Joints Jointing material may be lost during the early life of the pavement in both dry and wet weather, being blown away in dry conditions or washed away from the surface during heavy rain. It is therefore important to inspect areas of new paving regularly in their early life and top up joints where needed.

General Dirt + Grime To remove general dirt, a cyclic maintenance regime should be considered based on expected traffic and use. If detritus dulls the colour of the paving, it can be re-established by mild controlled pressure washing or scrubbing with proprietary solutions following the manufacturer’s guidelines. This can be carried out by hand or by using industrial cleaning equipment. Using a bristle brush with mild detergent and hot water is normally all you need to remove any build-up of dirt and grime. Mechanical sweepers or scrubber drier machines can be used to assist cleaning regimes long term however, it is advisable to avoid this cleaning process in the early life of the pavement to allow detritus to have sealed the joints.

Lichen, Moss + Algae Moss, lichen and algae may grow on paving in areas which are heavily shaded or under trees or are not laid to an adequate fall, leading either to slow running off or ponding of surface water. If such growths do occur, the areas should be treated with an appropriate proprietary weed killer, used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Rust Stains – Effects of Other Landscape Products AG.UK.COM

If rust stains occur on the paving, the first requirement is to eliminate the source of the staining. To remove rust stains, the surface should

be wetted and the affected area treated with a prop solution. After cleaning, the paving should be well washed down to remove all traces of the acid. It is common to find that rust stains can be sourced to the spreading of weed killer on green areas close to the paving. The chemicals in the weed-killer react with the pigments in the paving and rust coloured stains result. If there are locations where green areas and paving meet then consider using a block paving which has low pigment content.

Beverage + Food Stains Most stains associated with everyday life such as mineral / alcohol and food can be removed easily. These can normally be removed by scrubbing with a strong detergent and hot water solution. If the stain is persistent, apply a bleach solution and then rinse the area well with clean water.

Chewing Gum Chewing gum is difficult to remove from all paving surfaces. Newly discarded gum can be scraped off using a scraper, but hardened gum can only be removed by freezing / heating or chiselling it from the surface of the paving, or by using a high pressure water jet. If persistent then consideration should be given to a quality sealant to put a protective coating on the paving.

Rubber Tyre / Footwear Scuff Marks Scuff marks are common in locations where vehicles are used. These can normally be removed by mild power washing / steam cleaning, or by scrubbing the area with a strong detergent and hot water solution.

Grease + Oil Stains Oil does not penetrate readily into the body of paving, but if oil is spilt on the paving the spillage should be removed promptly with an absorbent material. After soaking up the majority of small spills, prompt washing with a prop solution should remove the stain. Steam cleaning can be used on paving to remove more extensive or stubborn stains, but if this is unsuccessful, an emulsifying degreasing agent should be employed. Brush the cleaner onto the affected area and then wash the emulsified oil away with plenty of water. Neither hot water, steamcleaning nor emulsifying agents will affect the colour of the paving.


Section 9

Additional Products + Information

The best method of removal is to leave the bitumen until it has cooled and remove it with a paint scraper or similar mechanical device. If it is particularly resistant, the use of ice to make the bitumen even more brittle may be required prior to scraping it from the paving. Any residue should be removed with an abrasive powder and finally the whole area rinsed with clean water.

Paint + Graffiti Both paint and graffiti are difficult to remove. Wet paint should be soaked up with an absorbent material. The area should not be wiped, as this will spread the paint. The spillage should then be treated with a suitable solvent, such as white spirit and the area washed with a strong detergent and hot water solution. Steam cleaning can also be employed. When paint has dried, it should be scraped off as far as possible and an appropriate paint stripper applied. This should be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the paint has been removed by the chemical, the area again should be washed with a strong detergent and hot water solution. Paint manufacturers may often be able to give more detailed advice on the removal of their own products. There are companies specialising in the removal of graffiti and it may be necessary to consult them if there are large areas affected by the accident or as a result of vandalism.

Epoxy + Polyester Stains Solidified epoxy or polyester resin can be removed by carefully burning the spillage with a blow torch or other heat source. Care must be taken not to inhale the fumes given off during the process. If after burning, a black stain remains on the paving, this can normally be removed by scrubbing the paving with a strong detergent and hot water solution. A small area should be tested before any large scale cleaning is undertaken.

Smoke + Scorch Stains Normally these stains can be removed by scrubbing with a strong detergent and hot water solution. Where the stains persist, a mixture of scouring powder and household bleach can be used, but this should only be used in very well ventilated areas. When using bleach, it is important that the affected area is thoroughly washed once cleaning is completed.

Winter Cleaning Programme

Protecting Your Paving Currently there are various high quality and effective sealant products available from local merchants and specialist companies. These can be either impregnators or sealants to help with stain removal or to provide some benefit in stabilising the sand in the joints in the short and longer term. If a surface sealant is used on paving, it must be applied in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Sealants may affect the colour of the pavement and its slip / skid resistance and may require ongoing maintenance during the life of the paving. It is important that the surface of the paving is dry and clean before any sealant is applied. Should any paving become loose or start to rock, the reason for the damage should be ascertained and then appropriate measures taken to avoid any ongoing problems. AG recommend the use, where possible, of sealants which have proven organic materials and less chemical properties. These products tend to be less intrusive on both the colour and technical properties of the paving. Where new services are to be installed or access is required to existing services under the paved area, the paving should be lifted carefully, cleaned and stockpiled for later use. Once the initial paving has been removed, it should be relatively straightforward to uplift the area of paving. During re-laying a slight surcharge should be created in the sand bedding course to allow for settlement of the paving following initial compaction and early trafficking. Typically, reinstated areas of paving should have a surcharge of 2-3mm over the surrounding paved area. Most manufacturers can supply copies or identical paving. Any replacement paving should be mixed with the existing paving to ensure an adequate colour blend between the old and new products.

Efflorescence Efflorescence is a white crystalline deposit that occurs naturally on the surface of concrete materials. It is hard to predict how long efflorescence will last due to varying factors such as climate conditions, location and aspect. In some cases it can take a year to disappear completely. It is in no way detrimental to the performance of the product. AG do not replace products with efflorescence. Should you require further information then please do not hesitate to contact the AG Technical Department, or visit the AG website at www.ag.uk.com. 226 | 227

All paved areas may be treated with de-icing materials. Normal de-icing salts can be applied without any risk of damage to the pavement. Once the pavement has dried out after any thaw, however, the paving may be temporarily discoloured by the de-icing salts, as is the case for any other surfacing

material. This may or may not happen depending on the product and paving however normal weathering should soon remove such discolouration after a short period.
