Natural Paving's riven natural sandstone has the beauty and hard-wearing qualities of real stone to add timeless appeal to any landscape. The colors and textures have formed naturally since time began which give each skillfully crafted piece its own wonderfully unique qualities.

These heavy duty step tread sections have been designed with a consistent height of 6" so they can be easily stacked to form a natural stairway.

Installation is simple. Just prepare the bottom step by levelling and compacting a 40" x 20" area and set the stone in place. Once positioned, it is important that the front of the tread is slightly lower than the back to ensure proper drainage. After your first stone is set, simply level and compact the area behind the first stone and set the next step onto the levelled area allowing the stone to partially rest on the back side of the previous tread.

Promenade has delicate shades of dove grey and occasional buff

Color Variation
Moderately Varied

This paving has moderate color and shading variation present within the range

Water Absorbency
Low Absorption

During tests, this paving absorbs less than 1.6% water when fully saturated. The lower the water absorption, the lower the risk of algae growth and staining. By comparison, concrete paving has an average water absorption of 6%

Flexural Strength
Good

During testing, this paving showed flexural strength of 26.1 Mpa. The flexural strength value shows how much bending stress a paving unit can be put under before it breaks and the higher the number, the stronger the paving. By comparison, concrete paving has an average flexural strangth of 5 Mpa

Frost Resistance
Great

During a repeated test cycle of freezing to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by thawing, this paving only lost 0.8 Mpa of flexural strength. This result demonstrates excellent paving resilience

Slip Resistance
Low Risk

This paving has a slip resistance PTV rating of 61 when dry and 51 when wet. A pendulum is used to swing across the stone to determine friction. The rougher the surface, the more the pendulum slows and the higher the value

There are many types of natural stone available, so it is important to choose the right natural stone for you.

Natural Paving's stone has been tested by a lab in the US and has far surpassed all ASTM requirements for paver material.

The most recent tests completed on the Classicstone range included:

  • PSI (Compressive Strength ASTM C140-15), scored an average value of 15,260. The is the amount of pressure per square inch that may be applied before the stone breaks
  • Absorption Rate (ASTM C140-15), scored an average value of 1.2%. This is a very good value as a low absorption rate is crucial to prevent the stone holding onto water, especially in colder climates.
  • Coefficient of Friction Rate (ASTM C140-15), scored within a range of 1.46 when dry and 0.94 when wet.

Furthermore, all products from Natural Paving are CE marked to ensure they meet with strict EU regulations that were introduced in 2013. European standards EN1341 (flagstones), EN1342 (pavers) and EN1343 (kerbs) specify the requirements and test methods for each of these. The CE testing covers areas similar to ASTM including water absorbency, flexural strength and frost resistance.

All natural stone products have been tested to show the various properties of each stone and how it is likely to react under different circumstances.

Material Information

Natural Stone Characteristics:

All natural stone products are unique and will vary in color and texture, often showing distinctive markings, minor imperfections and may include mineral deposits such as iron and quartzite. Sizes are nominal and may vary. The pointing allowance is often included in the individual slab sizes and contribute to the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer's and our own opinion of the product's characteristics and features.

Sandstone Description:

Sandstone is a type of sedimentary rock formed of gritty sand grains and is available in a variety of colors. Sandstone paving is available in a range of different textures, often relying on secondary processing to achieve these finishes.

- Cleft Sandstone This type of sandstone has an uneven, cleft, gently riven surface texture with occasional ridges and the edges of the slabs are usually hand-chiselled and tapered with the larger face of the slab to be laid uppermost. This sandstone may show slight variation on the thickness, usually ranging between quarter inch either way. 

Sandstone Colors:

Sandstone is available in a wide range of colors, some subtle and some vivid. The ranges comprise of a selection of core colors combined with subtle contrasting shades, and the balance of shades can vary between batches of even the same stone due to different seams in the stone quarry occurring over time. The blend of colors may include grey, pink, khaki, maroon, buff and many more shades which when combined, create the mix of colours that is so desirable with a natural stone material. Each color range has a stronger more predominant shade, however there will always be a crossover between ranges. The color intensity increases when the paving is wet and it is often possible to see dark fossil imprints within the stone from plants that lived several million years ago. If color variation is not a desirable feature, then it is recommended that alternative materials such as porcelain are considered as alternative options. The predominant shades found within each sandstone range offered includes:

Harvest, which is predominantly tan with pink, buff, gray and warm brown

Lakeland, which is mainly cool brown and gray green with soft lilac and buff tones

Promenade, is a subtle dove gray color with contrasting lighter and darker shades and occasional buff tones

Golden Fossil, with its warm cream and golden banded appearance contrasted by pink, bronze and gray

All sandstone may have bands of color or varying shades across individual pavers.
