Corobrik’s paving range has always proved popular in both commercial and residential developments, and the newly-launched piazza pavers are set to continue this trend as Corobrik meets market demands of aesthetics and quality.
“We noticed a surge in the number of customers requesting tones of grey, from light graphite to dark onyx, as a paving option,” explained Musa Shangase, Corobrik’s Commercial Director. “Corobrik has always prided itself in the ability to meet market requirements as they emerge, and the introduction the latest piazza paver, doppio and cobble pavers has proved timeous and on-trend.”
The new paving range received a lot of attention at the recent KwaZulu-Natal Construction Expo which provided the industry with a sneak peek before the national launch.
“There is a definite move in the construction industry to incorporate black and grey colours,” said Shangase. “This works well alongside the trend of exposed areas, revealing the raw brickwork.”
Corobrik has traditionally provided the standard size paver 220 x 108.5 x 50mm thick, however the newly launched piazza paver 220 x 50 x 50mm, doppio 220 x 220 x 50mm and the cobble 110 x 110 x 50mm are hitting the mark.
These add to Corobrik’s range of clay pavers which boast a mixture of colours, size and types, offering a unique style and tone for every development. Currently the popular paving designs include the use of the same colour paver, alongside a different size for the header or edging. Alternatively, the borders of the paved surface are being highlighted by introducing a different colour for the header or edging.
The herringbone paving pattern remains a popular option for driveways because of the superior interlocking properties and an improved overall look, while pathways are still predominantly in the stretcher bond pattern. When it comes to paving applications, there is a choice of the sand-grouted or closed joint, alternatively the cement grouted or open paving variations.
“While trends in pattern, application and colour will always change, we continue to find that customers remain unwavering in the requirements of colour-fastness and skid-resistance that Corobrik pavers offer,” said Shangase.
Because every paver is sourced from age-old deposits, they each exude an appealing earthy nature that is both aesthetically profound and extremely durable, able to withstand high levels of loading. The pavers are renowned for their colour integrity – possible through natural pigmentation – rich texture and minimal maintenance requirements.
“The timeless, earthy look and inherent durability are some of the primary reasons Corobrik’s pavers are constantly chosen for outdoor construction,” said Shangase. “We will continue to adapt our ranges with current trends while retaining the highest level of product quality throughout.”
