Products with multiple protection
Coated paving stones and patio tiles
A few drops of oil, a sausage that falls off the barbecue or perhaps spilt red wine - anyone looking to keep their drive and patio pristine will have to stop using them. The reason for this is easily explained: Every surface that can absorb fluids becomes so dirty eventually that the soiling cannot be removed. This process is exacerbated by moss, algae and the UV light of the sun.
We protect almost all types of paving stone in our product range against these negative influences by means of a special deep penetration agent. Also, we supply paving stones, patio tiles and bricks with ‘ex-work coating plus’ that wards off ageing effects and soiling even more effectively:

Products with a multiple protection coating - what does this actually mean?
First, the concrete core is made water-repellent from the inside out. The underneath of the dyed face concrete is then coated with a barrier layer and its top side is given an extremely durable coating.
Damp paving stones and patio tiles become soiled the most quickly. Thanks to our coating, almost no moisture can penetrate the surface of the stone, thereby preventing ambient dirt penetrating the surface.
Because dirt cannot enter the stone and usually remains on the surface, it is easy to wipe off with warm soapy water. Even ketchup, wine and oil stains can be easily wiped off.
Permanently beautiful surfaces
Coated Gerwing products can be cleaned without the use of high-pressure units that are damaging for all stone surfaces. The aggressive nature of the high-pressure appliances means that they remove the fine grain from the stones and make them dull.
Our solvent-free coating ensures that neither the permanent UV radiation of the sun nor rainwater can impact on the colours, so that your paving stones look as bright and intensive as the day they were laid.
Smooth surfaces that make walking and use of wheels easy
Regardless of whether you are wearing shoes with heels or if you go barefoot, the Gerwing tiles and stones will make you feel like you are walking on velvet and silk. Just try it out! Thanks to the fact that there a fewer joints, the products are also ideal for wheeled objects, such as go-carts, walking frames, inline skates etc.
Stability and frost resistance
Depending on the series, our coated surfaces are similar to the surfaces of tiles or ceramic tiles. So why not simply use normal tiles or ceramic tiles you might ask yourself? The answer: Because these are usually too thin and need to be attached to the sub-concrete. And this is a problem in our regions because the substructure is not frost-proof and cannot be driven over.
The coatings used are solvent-free and can therefore be used in conservatories or on areas where children play.
