ADVICE & CARE
Originally, this exterior old style flagstone lent a rustic and warm character to the old abbeys. Since then, many have adopted it to beautify their yard, their driveway, their paths or terrace. It is equally found at home inside, lending an old-style charm to your kitchen, for example. Or be inspired by steam rooms, saunas, spas and wellness centres where it exudes a serenity character thanks to its ability to adjust to room temperature and to preserve heat.
Hainaut Antic has a slightly irregular surface which gives it an anti-slip quality, reinforced by the jointing. A pleasure to walk on barefoot, Hainaut Antic is the perfect surround for your pool or water features, as well as being ideal for pathways and passageways.
Placed vertically on the wall with the correct fixing system, Hainaut Antic adds a warm touch - very spa, very relaxing. On the floor, on a terrace or on a footpath: 3 cm thick is sufficient. For driveways, a minimum thickness of 5 cm is required. It can be installed without joints, if you have expansion joints, use polymers.
Design creative and individual floor patterns. Alternate the pattern. Play with different formats. Draw straight or curved lines. Draw geometric shapes. Combine Hainaut Antic pavers with other bluestone pavers - such as KlinkStone or split pavers - to create anti-slip strips in your driveway. Or to create integrated gutters. The possibilities are endless.
Bluestone pavers do not require any particular maintenance, the weather will take care of that for you. Its non-porous property makes it resistant to wear and tear and other impacts. Early spring, simply remove with a brush the vegetation traces that might eventually settle during the winter season.
