Shannon
Description

Paving block designed to provide maximum performance in areas where smoothness and low maintenance are priorities. Its smooth hard wearing surface makes it particularly suitable for shopping precincts, schools, superstores, public paths and street scenes, where a high volume of prams, wheelchairs and vehicles are anticipated.

The elderly and physically impaired may also benefit from the smooth surface finish while children love it for cycling, skateboarding and general playing. Shannon has been specifically designed for today’s busy lifestyles where low maintenance is a primary consideration. Its ‘pencil’ chamfer and narrow joint width reduce maintenance levels.
