Smooth Sandstone Paving Features:

  • Captivating colors and variations enhance the appearance of gardens and patios.
  • Sawn and roughly honed finish creates a smooth and contemporary look with straight edges.
  • Honed smooth sandstone paving features prominent patterns and colours of natural paving stones. Offers a certain level of slip resistance, though lower than split riven sandstone.
  • Indian smooth sandstone paving comes in a wide range of colors, from neutrals to vibrant options.
  • Consistent thickness for easier installation compared to un-calibrated paving slabs.

How to Obtain Smooth Sandstone Paving

  • Initial Cutting: Place the sandstone block on the bed of the saw machine and cut it into roughly uniform-thickness slabs.
  • Rough Grinding: Roughly grind the top surface of each slab to achieve a smoother surface. The bottom surface remains the normal sawn surface.
  • Slab Selection: Remove the particularly thin slabs and use a calibrated machine to efficiently cut the particularly thick slabs uniform in thickness with a groove bottom.
  • Precision Cutting: Use the infrared saw machine to cut the processed nominal uniform thickness slabs into the desired specifications.
  • Packaging and Inspection: During packaging, approx. 5-10% of the bottom surfaces of the slabs may still be grooved, approx. 90-95% of the bottom surface is sawn.

⚠️ Paving Expert Advice: Sandstone is naturally porous, and water staining effects are more pronounced when in a honed smooth finished state. To mitigate this, we advise sealing the undersides of all sawn sandstone paving with SBR adhesive prior to installation, ensuring uniform application and complete drying to establish a chemical barrier between the cement mixture and the sandstone. Furthermore, apply Lithofin Stain Stop W sealer to the top and sides to prevent any staining.
