We recommend that a driveway paver is a minimum of 50mm thick to withstand the weight and pressures of any vehicle. APC has a list of approved driveway pavers. We also do not recommend a driveway paver be larger than 250 x 250mm unless there are a number of circumstances. Certain colours could also be avoided in driveways depending on its use. Visit your local APC display centre and speak to our expert staff or read our blog here for more information.
Not all pavers are created equal, so we recommend ensuring that the paver is salt resistant. At APC, our complete pool paver and coping range are salt resistant. We also recommend a paver that is slip resistant, given that the pavers will be wet most of the time. You may also want to consider a paver that is ‘cool under foot’ to avoid burnt feet. You can speak with our expert staff at your local APC display centre or read our block here for more information.
You want to ensure that the product you choose meets the features and benefits required for your project type. Depending on your retaining wall, you may need a certain retaining wall block.
