Interlocking Pavers - Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

Interlocking Pavers FAQs

Q. What Does Interlocking Mean?

A. Interlocking means that each paver is disabled from moving as an independent unit, for when they are interlocked, the pavers move in a uniform and flexible manner. This ensures a stronger paved surface. Interlocking pavers are manufactured in a variety of designs and patterns that fit and ‘interlock’ together, without the use of mortar!

Q. What Are the Benefits of Using Interlocking Pavers?

A. An interlocking paver surface is a rigid yet flexible one! The locking together of the pavers is what allows heavy loads to be spread over a wider area and it is the key to a stronger pavements. They allow the dispersement of heavy loads.

Q. What is the Disadvantage of using Mortar?

A. When mortar is used to make bricks or pavers into a solid surface you are in essence creating a very wide and flat surface that is now subject to the stresses of extreme temperature changes, earth moving and cracking from heavy loads. Interlocking pavers provide the strength of mortared pavers or poured concrete without the problem of cracking.

Q. What happens if an Interlocking Paver does Crack?

A. This is another advantage of interlocking pavers. If one does crack or break it can easily be removed and replaced because it is not mortared to the other pavers.
