DIY Live Paver Patio Installation
Brock Paver Base Overview
Brock Paverbase is an overlapping panel system made from Polyproplene, an environmental material known for it's durability, resilience, and thermal insulation qualities. Brock PaverBase replaces much of the traditional base used under pavers. It has been specially engineered for patios and walkways and other pedestrian applications. It is NOT engineered for driveways or other areas where vehicles are present.
Backyard Patios and Paths
It is especially convenient for backyard patios and paths, where access is often difficult. It's an engineered construction material designed to meet requirements such as ground stability and protection against frost heave, but at a fraction of the weight of traditional base.
Brock Paver Base Minimizes Excavation
The function of Brock PaverBase™ is to minimize excavation, and use the panels as a "platform" on which to lay your pavers or patio stones. The overlapping panels install quickly and can be easily trimmed with a standard utility knife.
Effective Load Spreading Qualities.This is a picture of a pressure sensitive film that changes color at 7 psi or greater. The film was placed under the cross section of a single paver over Brock PaverBase. Then a 250 lb load was placed on the paver. The pink color shows the area where the load generated 7 PSI on the subgrade, and the white area shows where the load was less. This demonstrates the effectiveness of the ability of Brock PaverBase to spread loads over a subgrade.
There are two models of Brock PaverBase. PaverBase Pro is a larger panel engineered for larger projects typically done by a professional contractor, and carries a lifetime warranty for Brock PaverBase plus a warranty for the chosen pavers. Standard Brock PaverBase is distributed at your local Lowe's garden center. It's is a slightly thinner product, carries a lifetime warranty, but does not carry a warranty for the pavers chosen.
