In order to withstand the load of a vehicle tile, it should have a thickness of 30-45 mm and a concrete strength of 600 kg / cm 2. Tile rests on a bed of mortar or dry mixture made on gravel. If the tiles are laid on the concrete base and the thickness thereof exceeds 45 mm, it can withstand truck.
How to lay paving slabs? First, you need to perform the transverse and longitudinal plan areas to be made. Remove the upper ball of soil somewhere on 150 mm. Water drain biases are taken into account. Now on the site to do any soil compaction way you can (vibration compaction, rolling, tamping). For curbs done recess soil and compacted bottom grooves. In the groove must pour a layer of sand somewhere 5 cm.
On a concrete pad in the grooves need to install curbs. If courtyard weak heaving soils, the Laying of geotextile operate. This prevents deformation of the coating. Surface need to fill with gravel, tamp it and pour. If the thickness of the paving tiles of more than 60 mm, then poured over crushed stone wet sand layer having a thickness somewhere 50mm. Align it by using the rail.
