What’s the difference between heavy-duty and commercial block paving?

While they might sound like different types of paving blocks, commercial block paving is just another name for heavy-duty block paving.

As the name suggests, these tough block pavers are cut out to withstand extremely heavy loads. They are typically 60mm-80mm thick, which makes them suitable for car parks and commercial spaces.

At Simply Paving, we source all our commercial block paving from Charcon, experts in hard landscaping. This means you can be confident that your product is physically up to the job.

Can I buy different styles and colours of heavy-duty block paving?

Although heavy-duty block paving is primarily bought for its strength and resilience, it doesn’t mean it can’t look good.

When you buy with Simply Paving, you get a wide range of colours and styles for your commercial project – courtesy of Charcon. Take our Charcon Woburn Rumbled block paving, for instance. Both strong and durable, these attractive pavers have a finish built to complement contemporary and traditional spaces.

What’s more, this block paving is available in three different colours: autumn, graphite and rustic, so you can find the perfect block paver for your project.

How do I install commercial block paving?

To ensure your installation doesn’t run into any hiccups, such as damages or delays, you will first need to know how much weight your heavy-duty block paving can withstand.

As every commercial project is unique, we always advise checking the specifications of your block paving before making a purchase. This will help to ensure it is the right fit for your build. On request, Charcon can provide data sheets that give a breakdown of how to install individual pavers, including how to plan for different load weights.
