Andrew, I like the look and the idea, but haven't seen it yet. Hoping they incorporated it at the PANTS display this week in Pennsylvania. If so, I'll share more information on Friday.

It is a nice look. Wi outlast the real stuff with the proper install.
Here in Phoenix, we have the small version and also a "Mega" version.
Mega outsells the other 20 to 1. Mega looks more like flagstone, because
of the size.

You will need to use Polymeric sand due to the false joints.

The aspect ratio is more than likely over 5 , which makes it not a
good choice for a driveway. But, some manufactures are saying smilar
products with AR over 4 are ok for driveway use. And, the are giving a
warranty on it when used Ina driveway application.

Peace,

Rex

To me the Techo flagstone appears somewhat slenderical. It's my opinion that some of the shapes could stand too be a little more broader.

It looks alright, I agree it could be broader.

I like the Arbel better, but it doesn't matter since Techo isn't here in
St. Louis. Is Techo sold under another brand? A lot of our Pave loc stuff resembles Techo.

Mixed thoughts on it, I personally don't like any of the mega stuff, just too damn heavy to lift. I'll reserve judgement til I get my hands on some of it.

I got the email, also. Not sure what I think until I see it in person, but I think I'll stick with the real thing for now.

Did see the Techo Flagstone at PANTS and it looks good. It is 3 1/8" thick which according to Techo allows it to be used in driveways. The interlock is tight, the colors are beautiful and the shapes are very complimentary. It looks like a very nice product to work with and the results should be quite satisfactory. The advantage of being able to lay it linear or in a herringbone pattern give this material added flexibility for installations. They do recommend poly sand for the installation to fill in the cut joints, but that is likely a standard for most installers today.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a pallet to experiment with it and determine it's true benefits.
