At Cumbrian Stone our sandstone paving is cut to a minimum thickness/depth of 40mm, although we do recommend a thickness of 50mm if possible as this gives additional strength within the slab and significantly reduces the chance of breakages during installation and future use.
The most cost-effective way to order paving is to specify a set width and thickness of paving slab, cut to random lengths to suit the stone slab. This minimises the amount of waste generated during the cutting process meaning that the savings generated can be passed on to you as the customer. It is also possible to specify set lengths if you require all of the paving slabs to be cut at the same size for ease of installation.
At Cumbrian Stone our sandstone paving is smooth finished. This gives a flat surface that is ideal for walkways and patios. It is possible to create additional slip resistance by sandblasting the top face of the paving slabs; this opens up the top face of the stone, creating a slightly rougher texture that can provide additional grip. This is ideal for public areas or walkways that are likely to be used in wet or icy conditions.
