Architectural Paver Specifications

Architectural Paver Specifications and Compliance Reports

Lasting Beauty • Incredible Strength • Immense Durability

Sunny Brook’s concrete pavers have the density and strength of stone, thanks to its unique manufacturing process. The wet concrete mix is compressed by a hydraulic European press utilizing 460 tons of pressure to eliminate excess water and air, while the precision molds ensure uniform size and texture of each paver.

The result is a premium paver offering a minimum compressive strength of 8,500 pounds per square inch (psi) (58,605 kPa), a density of 150 pounds per cubic foot and a water absorption rate less than five percent.

With our precision engineering, we can manufacture our pavers to meet any architectural or engineering specification.

Contact us for a brochure and color sample box of our architectural concrete pavers and to learn more about how our pavers and pier/pedestal system can be utilized in your construction project.

Detailed reports available upon request. Efflorescence (a white chalky-like substance) will be noticeable on the top surface of the pavers. This is common with all concrete-based pavers and will bleed out in approximately one year. All Diamond and Stipple textured products are recommended for use as ballast or weight only.
