Kilsaran has recently commissioned a new state-of-the-art hermetic press paving plant at its paving and walling manufacturing facility in Dunboyne, Co Meath. One of the first new products to come off the new press is the Merrion Paving range. This range will be available to all Kilsaran customers throughout Ireland and the UK. This major investment has secured 200 jobs on the Dunboyne site and added another 30 jobs directly.
Kilsaran Merrion Paving
The Merrion Paving range’s clean edges and smooth texture mirror the latest design trends helping customers achieve a contemporary look to their outdoor space. All flags are 40mm in depth for greater ease of application, offering a modern alternative to porcelain and natural stone.
Hermetic presses are leaders in paving manufacturing technology, producing 1,500 tonnes of pressing power and utilising wet colour mixes to guarantee a finished product that is second to none. Innovation in packaging has eliminated surface scratching with face to face and base to base packing of flags along with an intertwined roping system to help the concrete breathe.
Adding to an extensive list of advantages of concrete paving over natural stone, the Merrion paving range is manufactured with a robust, high-performance surface layer, improving strength, colour retention and slip/skid resistance. The real benefits of these new paving ranges are the reduced installation time, a factory pre-sealed option that is readily available, and cost-saving that is achievable over choosing natural stone or granite.
Easy to install
Speaking about the new range, Roy McKeown, Director, Paving & Walling, Kilsaran International, says, “There has been a growing appetite from our customers in recent years for paving products that are durable, easy to install, cost-effective and easy to maintain. This is where our new Merrion range comes in. It is contemporary and offers a real alternative to porcelain or natural stone. We are excited about the new hermetic press and are currently working on an exciting new range of paving that will come to market in the coming months. With the pandemic, there is a global shortage of imported paving materials, and now we can offer both quality and supply to our local markets.”
