Cambridge Paver Shapes

The huge variety of Cambridge paver shapes include:

  1. Straight-sided shapes with beveled edges and a flat surface
  2. Traditional shapes with rolled edges and embossed surfaces
  3. Angled shapes with beveled edges and flat surfaces
  4. Shapes with an Antique distressed appearance
  5. Specially designed shapes for specific applications
Cambridge Paver Shapes It is important to note that certain shapes are more suited to certain applications than other shaped pavers. For example, fan or circle shaped pavers have become very popular in driveway paving. More so, certain shapes are also suited for areas that require their geometrical specifications. A perfect example is Cambridge turfstone, whereby it is mostly used for areas requiring a non-watertight surface because of its hole-structured shape
Shapes with an antique distressed appearance aim to create an ‘old charm’ effect. This range of pavers is often referred to as the ‘Renaissance Collection’. Cambridge paver shapes reflecting this era include Holland-stone and Bullnose (appropriate for stair cases, Diagram: Bullnose).

The two most common shapes for Cambridge pavers are square or rectangular-based. The combination of these two shapes creates commonly used patterns such as herringbone, basket weave, or running bond.

Half-course or Full-course squares are important Cambridge paver shapes because they enable the combination of two different shaped stone pavers to interlock in a unique pattern. The following diagram illustrates the interlocking of both half-course and hexagon shaped pavers. This is referred to as ‘cobble lock’ (Diagram: Cobble-lock).

Combining Cambridge Paver Shapes into a Pattern or Design

More complex shapes such as Hexagonal, Diamond, Tulip or Marquise have also aided the design flexibility and natural effect that Cambridge pavers can have on a designated area once installed. The beauty is that these shapes allow the pavers to be arranged in various sequences and also into different patterns when combined with other various shaped pavers.

There are dozens of different shaped Cambridge pavers including Uni Eco-Stone, Uni-Anchorlock, Keystone, concourse and symmetry.
