What can we expect from the Crestline Molded Pavers Series?
Brick walks, patios and driveways add character, charm and color permanence no other paving material can match. Molded pavers which, due to their low water absorption and high compressive strength, perform exceptionally well in a variety of applications. Belden Brick produces the Crestline Molded Pavers Series which are available in seven styles and three sizes including 2-1/4" thickness x 4" width x 8" length, 2-3/4" thickness x 4" width x 8" length and 2-1/4" thickness x 8" width x 8" length. These bricks meet ASTM C 902-11 (Pedestrian and Light Traffic) and ASTM C 1272-11 (Heavy Vehicular) paving brick specifications and are available in Dutch Chamfered Edge only.

How does the Belcrest Series of Molded Pavers differ from Crestline?
Belcrest molded pavers meet ASTM C 902-11 pedestrian and light traffic paving brick specifications. They are available in eight styles and a modular size that measures 2-1/4" thickness x 3-5/8" width x 7-5/8" length. Regardless of the application, a highly stable and durable paving project requires proper installation. The type of paver you choose will depend on the aesthetics of your design scheme.

What does the extruded paver City Line series offer customers?
City Line Pavers are extruded pavers and are available in 17 styles manufactured with chamfered edges and spacer lugs. Other options are chamfered edge with no lugs and straight edge. 8" x 8" units and ADA compliant units are also available. Three different size options are available. Standard size 2-1/4" thickness x 4" width x 8" length to meet ASTM C 902-11 pedestrian & light traffic paving brick specifications, Plank size 2-A 1/4 " x4" x 12" (flat set), 4" x 2 A 1/4 " x 12" (edge set) or Jumbo size 2-3/4" thickness x 4" width x 8" length to meet ASTM C 1272-11, Type F or Type R, standard specification for heavy vehicular paving brick. Lugs are not available on 8" x 8", Plank or ADA Pavers.

What sustainable advantages do Permeable pavers by Belden Brick provide?
These are the only pedestrian-friendly stormwater management fired clay permeable pavers currently on the market that can be used for machine installation. The smooth, flat surface meets ADA standards and is a superior choice for areas with high foot traffic. It is ideal for plazas, walkways, entrances, and parking lots and qualifies for additional LEED Certification Categories. They are cost-effective, easily installed, and low maintenance, and can also be a strategic component of a sustainable design based on their permanent color and solar reflectance index.
