Fresh, contemporary and hard-wearing, our Textured Flags are a popular choice for commercial developments, residential developments and other pedestrianised areas. Engineered with a hard-wearing granular surface, these paving flags have a modern, natural look that blends beautifully with a variety of projects. Textured Step Flags are available.
Every aspect of our product’s performance is researched and optimised to provide an excellent long-lasting appearance. In respect to the challenge of efflorescence, we have invested in manufacturing technology which enables us to produce virtually efflorescence free paving.
Efflorescence is perhaps the single biggest problem encountered with decorative concrete paving products. The cause of efflorescence is simply a chemical reaction between the cement in the concrete and rainwater causing the formation of calcium carbonate. This white, crystalline substance stains the surface and spoils the appearance of the paving.
In the Tobermore manufacturing process, we cure our products in a warm vapour atmosphere for 12 hours, which ensures that efflorescence is dramatically reduced. Moreover, the vapour curing also enhances the colour, improves the strength and cures the products much faster, allowing products to be used almost immediately.
