Maintenance

  • Keep pavior joints well filled with Pavior Jointing Sand.
  • Pressure washers and chemical cleaners are not recommended, particularly for reconstituted stone and natural limestone.
  • To clean, wet thoroughly with lukewarm soapy water and use a stiff hard broom.
  • Never use common salt to de-ice reconstituted stone or limestone. Alternative products are available, specially formulated for this purpose.

Dimensions

All dimensions given are nominal and subject to manufacturing tolerances. The quoted sizes and coverage of our paving ranges are for the overall areas including appropriate joints, making it easier for you to plan a project and order the right quantities. For precise dimensions, measure several product samples at a stockist. We are continually making innovations and improving products so we reserve the right to vary designs and specifications without notice.

Colours

Variations in colour shade occur in all Stonemarket products. While the colours shown in this brochure are as accurate as reprographic processes allow, it is essential that you see actual materials at your local stockist before choosing. This is particularly important with natural stone products where considerable variation occurs. Our reconstituted stone products contain natural aggregates so we cannot guarantee that products made at different times will have identical shades. When using several packs, mix products from each pack to achieve a blended overall appearance.

Weathering

Weathering and site conditions can cause variations in shade to appear on individual units. These will not affect performance in any way and will diminish over time. Both natural and reconstituted stone products are affected by sunlight and rainfall. Natural stone may develop brown markings as its iron content oxidises. Stonemarket cannot accept responsibility for efflorescence which may occur as a deposit and/or apparent colour fading in the form of patches or drip staining.

Stonemarket Terms and Conditions

In the unlikely event of products reaching you in less than satisfactory condition, please notify the retailer immediately. Please note that if you lay a product with a defect apparent prior to laying, then we may not accept responsibility for costs incurred.

While every effort has been made to give sound advice, Stonemarket cannot accept responsibility for any loss, damage or injury sustained in following it. We cannot accept any liability if products are used for purposes other than those for which they were intended, or if damage is due to not following our advice.

Health and Safety - Mixing Mortar

Dry or damp cement and wet concrete or mortar can cause irritation and burns to the eyes and skin. Suitable eye protection and PVC gloves should be worn. If contact with the eyes or skin occurs, irrigate or wash off with plenty of water. If irritation or burning persists, seek immediate medical attention.

Health and Safety - Cutting

Using high speed cutters on concrete and stone products produces dust. If inhaled in excessive amounts over a long period this may cause long-term health problems. Suitable safety goggles and a dust mask should be worn.

Health and Safety - Manual Handling

Most of our products are abrasive and heavy, some are very heavy. Appropriate handling precautions include wearing protective gloves and footwear and obtaining assistance when moving items weighing over 20kg.
