AG, one of the UK and Ireland’s most innovative paving and building products companies, has launched three new paving flag and block products, Tavira, Tri Stone and Plaza Quattro.   

The products have been created in response to a changing market, as customers demand alternatives to natural stone and range from high-end products through to entry and mid-range products.  

All of the products are produced in the UK in AG’s state of the art factories using 100% renewable energy as well as over 50% recycled, non-primary materials in the base mix and 100% recycled rainwater. All the products are also 100% recyclable. 

The firm is committed to seeking ways to continuously improve production and enhance the sustainability and environmental credentials they are passionate about.  This is converted into positive benefits for their customers in terms of improved product performance, added product benefits, longer life cycle and improved sustainable and environmental performance – all underpinned by attractive costs, faster and safer installation and exceptionally attractive finishes.  

Tavira is a beautifully crafted flagstone which uses the finest natural granite aggregates, creating an aesthetically pleasing granite style finish at an affordable price. The subtly textured finish makes them ideal for patios, pathways, balconies and other pedestrian areas. 

The range is available in three distinctive colours, including a sharp silver, a rich tonal slate and a vibrant sahara. They come in two size formats – 600mm x 400mm x 40mm and 450mm x 450mm x 40mm – making them the ideal choice to complete 900mm wide pathways around housing projects and pathways.  

AG have also created two new paving block products – Tri Stone and Plaza Quattro. 

Tri Stone is perfect for patios, paths and driveways and can withstand domestic and light traffic.  

It comes in two sizes (and is also available in a convenient 3 sized mix pack) and three bold colour blends, Fiammata, Frassino and Ocra.  

Tri Stone’s porcelain-effect, smooth finish boasts low maintenance due to its close joining which means less grouting is required and less weeds can grow through the joints. 

Plaza Quattro is manufactured using the same material mix as AG’s renowned Plaza Paving and has a plank-style, close-jointed finish.  

Plaza Quattro is a water-etched, lightly textured granite aggregate paving block and is best suited to hard landscaping concepts in large urban schemes where style and longevity are key requirements. Plaza has also been used widely in large conservation areas to great effect.  

 Manufactured in one of the most modern purpose-built facilities of its kind in Europe, Plaza is created using a computer-controlled water-etching process that delivers a vibrant exposed face and a level of aesthetic detail not seen in comparable products.  Its green credentials are impeccable too.  

Plaza Quattro comes in a range of rectangular dimensions and eight colours that can be ‘mixed and matched’ to create an array of patterns that blend seamlessly with any outdoor environment. Its ultra-linear formats have been designed to deliver maximum performance and versatility. 

Tri Stone comes in a 50mm depth but due to AG’s top mix optimisation, this benefits from the same strength as a 60mm through mix product making them durable whilst also being easier to handle. 

The colours are created using top mix multi-blending, where carefully selected fine aggregates are blended with AG’s cement replacement to create a high contrast laying pattern which complements contemporary and minimalist design styles best. 

All three of AG’s latest products are manufactured with Enduur 1 advanced concrete technology. Enduur is the most advanced concrete technology ever created by AG, delivering an impressive range of product enhancements, from increased strength, durability, and UV resistance to a lower carbon footprint and advanced hydrophobic performance.
