Step 4Once the panels are installed gravel can be spread across the surface to fill the segments. An overfill of 10 - 20 mm can be used to conceal the stabilisation panels from sight.
Laying FormatMost of our panels interlock with each adjacent segment in a manner that prevents uplifts from segment to segment, thereby eliminating raising edges that cause pedestrians to trip.
Try to keep long joints from forming with StablePAVE XL, lay in a grid system.
Step 1The panels are placed on the prepared foundation / sub base (see specification). Place the first section in position and on the intended line of fixing.
Step 2Present the next section to the first and click them together (for StablePAVE Pro, StablePAVE Trade and StablePATH ECO, for StablePAVE XL the panels simply lay next to each other due to the size and weight of the panels once filled).
Step 3Segments can be cut using a handsaw, jigsaw or band saw to fit the area intended.
Additional NotesWhen installing on slopes, begin the laying from the lower end of the slope which should have a kerb. If being used for vehicular traffic, ensure that the edge where the vehicles run onto the stabilisation panels is flush with adjacent ground or pavement and has a kerb. For pedestrian use, edging is not essential but is does give a good finish to the area.
Kerb stones may also be necessary along the side of an installation where regular vehicular use is planned to prevent lateral movement.
