Compared to full-cut, sawn-split Gabbro pavers have 4 sawn sides. The top and bottom of each stone has a natural chipped texture. Such paving stones are also called “made from a pencil.” The name comes from the technological process of production. Initially, Gabbro blocks are sawn on large sawing machines into 10 cm thick slabs. Then, these slabs are fed to multi-disc stone cutting machines, with smaller diameter saws. At the output, we get long rods, with a section of 10×10 cm – the so-called pencils. Then we prick these blanks on a hydraulic press. Due to the fact that the press knives fit more closely to the surface of the stone, the chipping of each paving stone comes out more even.
As a result, we get several advantages at once, compared with chopped paving stones:
- Sawn-split paving stone has a more even surface;
- The sides are absolutely even, which ensures the evenness of the seams;
- Seams when laying come out thinner and neater.
