Old world charm. New age technology.
Reminiscent of the brick pavers used in old European cities, towns and villages, Copthorne is a virtually indestructible paver that will not split, crack or fade. Crafted using a special forming process, each piece is uniquely altered, yet the dimensions are consistent for easy, efficient installation.
The surface of each Copthorne paver is uniquely cast using Reala Surface technology to capture the feel of Europe’s oldest brick streets. Made with Ultima concrete, you not only get that bygone look and feel, with the assurance that Copthorne can be used inthe most demanding of applications.
Base Requirement & Bedding Course – standard paver base specification
Handling & Installation – A protective pad is required when doing the final paver compaction. Be sure to offset joints forbest appearance. Cutting is seldom required if you are installing a curvilinear walkway. Minimum radius 6 feet for curvedapplications. Install from multiple pallets for best color distribution.
- All paver applications and as accents in walls
Jointing Material and Joint Stabilization
- Good: Ordinary dry joint sand
- Better: Unicare Polymeric Sand, Techniseal RG+, Alliance XP
- Best: Ordinary dry joint sand stabilized by a water-based or solvent based joint sand stabilizer (joint sand stabilizersealer may make the surface slightly slippery).
- Polymeric sand is often installed too high in the joint. Ensure the sand level is lower than the paver surface to allowfor a three dimensional appearance.
- Alliance Gator Maxx Polymeric Sand is recommended for concrete overlays.
- Product may be sealed but it is not absolutely required
- Sealers generally decrease the slip resistance of a product
- Unilock Unicare, Surebond, BP Pro and Techniseal sealers can be used.
- Semi-gloss sealers will still appear glossy on this product. Please test a stone to ensure the desired effect.
- Product must be cleaned before sealing
Cleaners – Any paver cleaner from Unilock, Techniseal, Surebond or BP- Pro is acceptable.
Special note: Other than overlay on concrete stoops and steps, you should have a bedding layer between the pavers and the poured concrete surface to avoid issues with height variance
