WONDERING WHAT OTHER CONCRETE PRODUCTS YOU CAN PRODUCE

IIn the building of APARTMENT BLOCKS, BUILDINGS AND SKYSCRAPERS FLAT ROOF CONSTRUCTION IS COMMON PLACE. Roof coverage is normally consists of an insulated membrane covered by stone ballast over main roof area with paved walkways that allow maintenance access. THE COVERING MEMBRANE IS OFTEN CONSIDERED A WEAK POINT on the roof due to its easy wearing characteristics whereas the alternative of using flat tiles to cover the roof area can result in the ACCUMULATION OF WATER.

THE CONCRETE ‘BALLAST PAVER’ PRODUCED BY EXTRUSION OFFERS A PERFECT SOLUTION TO THESE PROBLEMS.

Westile Oldcastle Group in the USA have created a profiled concrete paver unit that with its simple side over lapping joint and its intrados underside design ALLOWS FOR AIR CIRCULATION AND WATER DRAINAGE TOGETHER WITH ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF AN EXTRUDED PRODUCT. The pavers are easily installed to completely cover flat roofs or alternatively for providing walkways for foot traffic. The ‘Ballast Paver’ can be manufactured on a Vortex Hydra roof tile extrusion machine by using ‘paver’ type interchangeable extrusion head and aluminium pallets and is compatible with the product handling, curing and packing systems used for roof tile manufacture.
