Brett Landscaping


Featuring the company’s AggTech surface technology, Brett Landscaping has introduced the new high performance Invicta range. Suitable for contemporary driveways, patios and pathway projects as well as urban streetscapes and commercial plazas, the collection utilises a formulated surface layer to create a hard-wearing paving block with a durable finish which shimmers in different lights.

For added design flexibility, the block paving is available in five single size packs using 80mm thick blocks, with sizes 600x200mm, 300x200mm, 300x100mm, 200x200mm and 200x100mm. There is also an Invicta Trio pack made up of three different block sizes in 60mm thickness: 105x140mm, 140x140mm and 210x140mm.

ReadyPave Camden

Using a manufacturing process said to ensure a more sustainable and environmentally friendly product, the CEMEX ReadyPave Camden offers the appearance of a traditional stone sett but without the need for a secondary manufacturing process to ‘rumble’ the pavers.

The product is different to the supplier’s previous multi-sett paving as it is available in a three-size multipack, which can be combined to form various patterns with consistent row widths. Combining all three sizes into one multipack has also reduced packaging and eliminated the potential for waste product on site.
