How to Install Moulded Crumb Rubber Pavers

Manufactured to look like stone pavers, rubber pavers are softer than the afore mentioned. This rubber flooring material is far more flexible than the conventional stone paver alternatives because it can evenly disperse weight or pressure to prevent cracking.

A popular choice for many, this affordable flooring alternative is available in various sizes, shapes and colours – giving many options to suit customer preference.

As a key safety feature, it is ideal for those high-traffic areas like day care centres, children's play areas and gyms.

Factors to Consider Before Installing Moulded Crumb Rubber Pavers

  • As they are porous they will easily absorb water - rubber pavers must not get wet before they are installed as liquids may cause them to expand.

To preserve their original aesthetic, cover with a protective material if there is any construction work going on nearby.

  •  Figure out how many blocks per square foot will be required to complete the project.
  • Compared to other types of rubber flooring, rubber pavers tend to dry quicker in warmer conditions.

How to Install Moulded Crumb Rubber Pavers

Dig Out the Area

Have your plan or design mapped out before you begin anything. Place wooden stakes at every corner of the area and run a length of string from one stake to another – to connect the stakes at every corner. The strings will serve as guides.

Dig out the area depending on how wet your ground is. For wetter areas that are more prone to rain, dig the area down to about 6 inches. If you live in a drier environment, dig down to at least 4 inches.

Get the Measurements

Measurements will be required to determine your new surface proportions. Follow this formula: width multiplied by the length multiplied by the depth divided by 27 (length x width x depth)/27 to calculate the surface material you will need for the job.

Order your rubber pavers according to the square footage of your area. Based on the calculated measurement, Coruba will figure out the exact number of pavers you need.

Compact and Level the Soil

With the dirt excavated and cleared, compact the soil to level. Use a plate compactor or a straight board to go over the soil, as it must be both flat and tight. Sweep over to knock out any uneven surfaces and continue compacting if there are any remaining bumps or ridges.

Lay the Paving Material

To allow rainwater to drain under the pavers, add 2 inches of gravel for dry climates and 4 inches of gravel for wet climates: failure to do so may cause the rubbers to shift and buckle.

Organise the Rubber Pavers

Spread adhesive on the back of your first paver. Start installing around the edges and work your way in by linking them together like a giant puzzle.

If needed, make cuts to the rubber pavers using a sharp utility knife.
