Types of bricks and bonds
New cement clinkers
What type of bonds can be created by the RoadPrinter?
People often inquire about the type of bricks and bonds that can be paved with the RoadPrinter Eco. To give you an impression of the possibilities, we have listed several examples of past projects on this page.
New cement clinkers and 21x7 cm clinker bricks laid in a single go to create a cycle track.
Using the RoadPrinter Eco to block pave the most commonly used herringbone pattern, guarantees a high production output and an excellent quality, regardless whether repaving with new or used bricks.
Vertical herringbone bond
A fine alternative for block paving pioneer roads with larger output, is having the Roadprinter Eco lay a vertical herringbone pattern. This is virtually the same as the regular herringbone, but lacks the triangle pavers on the edges. This leaves a small gap, which can easily be filled with sand.
7 cm wide pavers with sawn fitting pieces
Sawn fitting pieces are being used more and more, nowadays, with for example 7 cm wide pavers, a combination which can easily and efficiently paved by the RoadPrinter Eco for a magnificent result. The road rolls out of the machine in its entirety, so the fitting pieces no longer have to be positioned manually and no adjustments are required. Moreover, the RoadPrinter delivers a paved brick road with a neat and clean finished look.
10 cm wide baked pavers
Both used and new baked 10 cm wide pavers can be laid with ease by the RoadPrinter Eco. Wooden triangles are placed along the stretcher stones so that everything can be neatly trimmed afterwards. Moreover, these wooden pieces ensure the bonds stay tight in the machine, resulting in tight straight or diagonal lines. New stones are placed in half-sized stack on the paver’s feeder by a brick clamp.
90° herringbone bond for parking spaces
The RoadPrinter Eco is increasingly used to repave parking spaces with a 90° herringbone bond. The road rolls out in a single go once the machine has been properly set up, which is vital to produce a high-quality result. After this, markings can be applied. This method for repaving parking spaces is a lot more efficient than first piling the bricks in packets before laying them with the help of a brick clamp.
