Anyone ever use this size ? Here is my problem. I have a customer that wants pavers over concrete. No big deal but they will butt up to a step. Instead of reducing his rise too much with 3 1/8" paver for the soldier, I was opting to use 2 3/8" on the soldier with 1 1/2" pavers in the field . Just wondering everyone's thoughts.

Why not just use the 2-3/8" for all of it?

I am doing soldier course in larger because they are being glued. Then fill in field with thinner pavers with 3/4 inch sand bed. ICPI recommended installation over concrete.

Use 2 3/8 for all. Make sure when you glue your soldiers you don't do it in a manner to trap any water. If you place your 2 3/8" field right on the concrete your joint sand should keep any of them from rocking.

What you are looking for is called a "split-paver"
They range is size from 1-inch to 1 1/2-inches
Problem is, most are only made in 4X8 dimensions.
And, they can be hard to locate.

I would use the 80 mm for the perimeter and a 60 mm in the field.

I'm curious about the 1 1/2" "paver" who would be the manufacturer of this product?

In my market, Pavestone manufactures a split paver that is 1-inch in a 4X8

Since the 1 1/2 inch "paver" does not have the physical qualities to accually be a pavingstone, in no way would I ever reccomend this to be used as a patio/walkway stone in any application. Rex Mann's application is the correct way to install over concrete. My best guess is this 1 1/2 inch "paver" was designed for facing for pillars, steps, etc.

Jason,

We have used the split paver in pedestrian applications on occasion without
any failures. I would never use in a vehicular application.

BTW: a 14X14 mega buerac is not technically a paver either.

Old Castle is now making standard 1 3/4" thick pavers for Lowes...... doesn't compare to a "real" paver. Actually, I guess we cant even call what they sell a concrete paver..... I guess we can call them Paver size slabs?
