Introduction - The first company in india

Aeon's is the first company to manufacture HIGH STRENGTH PAVERS and install them in India. Interlocking segmental pavers offer a revolutionary alternative to the conventional rigid concrete and flexible asphalt pavers. Though they have been in use around the world for a long time, they were introduced in India by Aeons only in the early 1990s, as a heavy-duty application in the construction of a container terminal in New Delhi. Since then, they have taken the Indian market by storm, and have gained immense popularity due to the versatility of their application.


About segmental paving :

Interlocking segmental paving is a cost effective, durable alternate method of paving as compared to rigid concrete paving or flexible asphalt paving. The applications are varied such as in ports, container terminals, industrial hard standing areas, bus/truck terminal, slow speed roads, residential / commercial drive ways, petrol filling stations, aircraft taxiways etc. Over the years, the product has become very popular and has been specified for various projects all over India.

Interlocking pavers are available in a wide variety of shapes, patterns, strengths, sizes and colours.

Rectangular
Uniregular
Tulip

A D V A N T A G E S   O F   S E G M E N T A L   P A V I N G :
  • Ease to access to underground services and the fact that the blocks can be reused to restore the pavement to its original profile.
  • The laying technique is suited to unskilled labour provided they have adequate supervision.
  • The product is available in a wide variety of shapes and colours. This allows interesting designs to be constructed and also for the delineation of pedestrian areas, carparks, underground services, etc.
  • Concrete blocks have good durability and wearing resistance and are unaffected by oil and other toxic substances.
  • Their noise differential with asphalt pavements provides a safety measure that can be used to alert drivers.
  • Adequate skid resistance for vehicles and anti-slip element for pedestrian areas.
  • Immediate use after laying and large life spans.
  • Provides permanent road markings (Reflective pavers).
  • Thermal movement minimized by large number of block interfaces and by load carrying capability under deflected conditions.
  • Light reflecting qualities - Concrete block paving has much higher luminance factors than bituminous surfaces both in daylight and artificial light.
  • Long term durability
  • The maintenance requirements are low
  • Where maintenance must be carried out, it can be done with a minimum of equipment.
  • Service can be accessed or installed with relative ease by removal and replacement of pavers.
  • Reinstatement of the pavement does not leave obvious patches.

The Masa Record 250 AF installed by Aeon's at its facility at Gummidipoondi has the unique facility of manufacturing pavers with face enhancements. With this technology the pavers can be manufactured with a face mix for the top surface (5 to 8mm thick) and the base mix for the rest of the bottom.

Thus a smooth top surface with or without colour can be manufactured. Aesthetically enhanced pavers at enormously reduced costs are thus made available to the discerning customers
