This traditional paver is quite the looker. Blu 80 mm Slate is the thicker, stronger version of the Blu 60 mm slab, making it more appropriate for commercial, industrial and institutional projects where pedestrian traffic is relentless. Its slate texture gives it the feel of natural stone and makes it better suited for rustic and traditional aesthetic environments than its smooth and polished counterparts. This interlocking paver system is made up of three different formats that are palletized together, and that can be installed in both linear and modular motifs. The smallest of these formats — Blu 80 mm 6”x13” — can also be ordered separately to create stacked or running bond, herringbone, and parquet patterns. Add a little sophistication to your design by combining it with the other Blu 80 formats to create banding, inlays, or soldier courses. Blu 80 has an eco-friendly side too: it can be installed in a permeable application to help you reduce stormwater runoff responsibly and achieve LEED certification. A permeable base will not only contribute to reestablish natural water cycles but also help clear away melted ice and snow before it can refreeze, reducing the need for snow removal. This established classic is de-icing salt resistant and vehicle-friendly, making it a great choice for restaurant patios, parking lots, and any other commercial, institutional or industrial project.
