paving

 

Pavements, are applications in which the stresses acting on the materials, are the most aggressive.

Consider, in the strong bending, impact or abrasion caused by the different trades, moisture acts almost permanently on the stone, the heavy action of frost deposition of snow in cold climates, phenomena of efflorescence or stains from the substrate support, etc..

Under these conditions it becomes necessary in addition to a suitable dimensioning of the parts, careful placement.

In engineering, is the layer comprising one or more materials that are placed on natural terrain or level, to increase strength and help to the movement of people or vehicles. Among the materials used in paving urban, industrial or road soils are better able to support, rock materials, concrete and asphalt mixes. It is currently under investigation pavements that help the environment as consisting of noxer.

 

One of the earliest forms of the Roman pavement was built in several layers. This great engineering work got several sections have survived for centuries and can be found even today.

 

 

paving stone

Setts (from Arabic ad-dukkân, "squared stone") are carved stones or blocks of rectangular shape and are used in pavement construction. The material used for its construction was granite, for its high strength and ease of treatment. Its dimensions are usually 20 cm. long by 15 cm. width, which facilitates manipulation with one hand.

terrazzo

Terrazzo is a construction material composed of pebbles of stone (usually marble) clusters with cement. Due to its high strength and low cost, is the material used in flooring finish interior and exterior.

 

The flooring or floor coverings are defined by their resistance to indentation from furniture and steps for their wear resistance, their response to agents such as water and its stability against household chemicals, in addition to their decorative function.

The resistance of outdoor flooring material against sharp temperature differences, or frost. Expansion joints of the pavement and consider the structural joints. The resistance to the action of oily or fatty products in flooring for kitchens, bathrooms, trash and parking.

Water absorption less than or equal to 10% in wet rooms such as kitchens, toilets and garbage rooms.

 

Meetings between different flooring materials in transit openings, so that when you close the door, the song of the same disguise.

The arrangement of skirting greater or equal to 4 cm in encounters between flooring and vertical face. Protection bits in front of steps covered with sheet materials.

Treatment required for wood flooring wood-eating insects.

Layout zanquín greater than or equal to 4 cm. high in the linings of stairways meeting with vertical walls.

 

Stony Soils, as the name implies are stone floors, this group of coatings can be both indoor and outdoor.

Stony soils can be of natural stone or artificial stone.

These stone floors are placed on the floors indoors and outdoors, on land stabilized and consolidated or screeds.
