Ordinary Cabro / Paving Blocks … Ideal for driveway, parking lots, and general compound. The cabro can handle big traffic and heavy machines/vehicles.
Concrete paving blocks, commonly known as Cabro in Kenya are used on road carriageway surfaces, car parks, within landscaped compounds, and in tented shelters.
The Strength of the block is determined by its thickness, with the most common thicknesses ranging from 50mm, 50mm, 80mm, and 100mm.
For heavy-duty roads, 80mm and 100mm thick blocks are used. For light-duty roads such as driveways to private residences, tented shelters, and car parks, 50mm thick is appropriate.
The soil underneath, especially if it’s black cotton soil, needs to be removed until the stable ground is reached. Murram is then backfilled and a roller compactor is used to compact the soil. The last 300mm depth is filled with hand-packed hardcore which is also roller compacted. Fine aggregate is laid on top then finally the paving blocks are arranged and held together on the edges by the concrete curbs.
