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 then move on to 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.
Half the cement and 5% recycled material
while exceeding ASTM C936 specification requirements.
Since 1985, Genest has been using less cement in concrete paving stone production than most paving stone producers, and now after years of experience and development, we are proud to introduce G-mix®. This formula uses at least 5% recycled aggregate and half of the cement traditionally used to produce concrete paving stones. You can be sure that when you specify from Genest, you will have a low carbon footprint for your project.
