New options in clay pavers

Corobrik Autumn Doppio (Double) paver with Wheatstone Ciotollo and Rustic Blend Piazza pavers.Bringing fresh inspiration to its widely specified range of clay brick pavers, Corobrik in the Western Cape has launched three new clay paver ‘accessories’.

Christie van Niekerk, Corobrik manager Western Cape, described the products.

“The Piazza range was initially produced at our Springs factory and test marketed in Gauteng.

It was used in Johannesburg’s Hillbrow inner city redevelopment project and then at the King Shaka International Airport. It will now be produced locally in Rustic Blend, Autumn, Wheatstone and Red colours.

 

“The slim Piazza paver measures 200 by 50 by 73mm. It has no bevelled edges and works well on its own in courtyard applications or complementing other Corobrik clay pavers in the standard rectangular formats.

“The Ciottolo or cobble paver measures 105 by 105 by 73mm and is available in Autumn, Wheatstone and Red colours. This square paver has the appeal of natural cobbles and offers the flexibility to create patterns and borders in expansive paved areas.

“The 200 by 200 by 50mm Doppio, or paver tile, is particularly useful for adding patterns and interest to paving – as demonstrated at the Cape Town One and Only Hotel.

“On their own or used with other paving products these three new pavers offer architects and landscape architects the flexibility to create attractive, high quality, long lasting, hard landscaped areas,” van Niekerk continued.

Corobrik has been manufacturing and marketing clay face bricks and pavers in South Africa for over 100 years. Our pavers are manufactured from selected clay deposits that offer distinctive colour blends. While strength, durability and longevity are important aspects of our products, the aesthetic appeal of the clay pavers is really what it is all about. With this new range we are introducing new opportunities for creating spaces that people will really enjoy,” van Niekerk concluded.
