Engineering of a Genest paving stone.
Strength meets beauty.
The manufacturing process starts with a “base mix” of high strength concrete combined with a high concentration of stone, mostly granite. This combination creates a paving stone with solid strength and durability. Next we combine selected fine aggregate and a high concentration of cement and color pigment in the “face mix”. This results in a more brilliant color blend, and a solid surface with no visible signs of stone.
During this process the “base mix” is placed into the mold and compressed. Once the base is compacted, the “face mix” is immediately added and compressed together as a composite whole. The pavers now move onto the next stages of manufacturing. When installed these paving stones will withstand severe New England weather conditions and continue performing as designed for years to come.
