What is Bevel Paving & what is its advantages?
Paving can come in many different shapes, sizes & colours, all very significant attributes to help create an incredible landscape. But what is a bevelled paver? And why is it important?
When you look closely at a bevelled paver, you will notice all four edges on top of the paver are slightly sloped – this is the bevel. Also referred to as an arris or square, a bevelled edge is a specific angle detail found on the sides of square-edged pavers. It is typically a 5mm 45-degree angle but can vary depending on your chosen product. The bevelled edges help define the shape of the paver and the pattern as an architectural/design feature. The LeMode Paving Range includes the bevelled edge on all the pavers within this range.
