Concrete paving blocks, commonly known as Cabro in Kenya are used on road carriageway surfaces, car parks, within landscaped compounds and in tented shelters. This becomes better when you have a machine that produces these pavers in large quantity since it helps in reducing manpower as well as speeding thus enhancing efficiency.

What makes a concrete paver to be of good quality?
The Strength of a block is determined by its thickness, with most common thicknesses ranging from 50mm, 50mm, 80mm, and 100mm. For heavy-duty roads, 80mm and 100mm thick blocks are used. For light-duty roads such as driveways to private residences, tented shelters, and car parks, 50mm thick is appropriate.
Fixing the pavement
The soil underneath, especially if its black cotton soil, needs to be removed until stable ground is reached. Murram is then backfilled and a roller compactor used to compact the soil. The last 300mm depth is filled with hand-packed hardcore which is also roller compacted. Fine aggregate is laid on top then finally the paving blocks arranged and held together on the edges by the concrete paver.
The construction of the blocks should involve pressure compression and vibrating to ensure no airspace and honeycombs develop because these make the paving block weaker.
Quick drying cement such as Savannah and chemical additives are added to make the curing process faster.
