New for 2020 - This large slab product sets the stage for a contemporary design. Its enhanced surface appearance is achieved using a special process to reveal a variety of unique colors and textures on the surface of the product. With a non-slip surface, and a 60mm thickness, this product is the perfect choice for patios, walkways and pool decks.
APPLICATION – Light duty pedestrian walkways, patios and pool decks.
RECOMMENDED BASE STABILIZATION – one layer of DriveGrid™ stabilization grid between subgrade and base material. Recommended depth 8" to 10" below pavers for maximum stability and performance. Use under Standard Base or Permeable Base.
STANDARD BASE – Min. 6" – 8" of ¾" Crusher Run gravel (any road base standard in accordance with ASTM-D2940) compacted to 98% Standard Proctor Density (SPD).
STANDARD BEDDING COURSE – 1" thick of coarse sand – in accordance with ASTM-D2940 screeded over base.
ALTERNATIVE PERMEABLE BASE – Min. 6" – 8" of ¾" clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together.)
ALTERNATIVE PERMEABLE BEDDING COURSE –1" thick of ¼," clear open-graded chip stone – (ASTM No. 8) screeded over base.
CONCRETE DIRECT OVERLAY – In some areas of the country and for some applications pavers are very successfully placed directly over concrete. Revela is a large format paver and must not be used in vehicular applications. It should never be installed over concrete that is unstable or of sub-par quality. The following considerations must be taken into account to insure that the concrete below the surface is ideal:
JOINTING MATERIAL AND JOINT STABILIZATION
All sands must meet ASTM C144 or C33 Specifications. For best appearance and optimal performance, keep jointing materials approximately ⅛"below the chamfer (bevel edge) of the paver.
Good Option: Ordinary sharp jointing sand in accordance with ASTM C144 or C33. (Common name: Concrete Sand)
Best Option: Any polymeric sand or ordinary concrete sand stabilized by a water-based or solvent-based joint sand stabilizer sealer. Always follow manufacturer’s application specifications and requirements.
HANDLING – Due to the size and weight of Revela, a mechanical lifting tool or machine should be used to handle and place units. Do not knock units together while transporting or installing which could result in chipped edges or corners.
EDGE RESTRAINT – Always install an edge restraint around the perimeter of any paver installation not restrained by building structures. Spike-in edge restraints come in plastic and metal and work well for most applications. A concrete curb or a sub-surface concrete wedge can also be installed to retain the edge.
PAVER COMPACTION – Always use a protective polymer pad on the bottom of your compactor when doing the final compaction of the pavers. An alternative is to use a rubber-roller compactor for the final compaction.
NOTE: Do not compact pavers that have been installed in direct concrete overlay applications.
CLEANERS – Any cleaner specifically designed for pavers may be used for color restoration or general cleaning. Follow manufacturer’s dilution rates and application procedures. Always test a small area to make sure the results are as expected.
