Technical Information



CARO SUPPORT is a High Density Polyethylene injection moulding that raises the paving 15mm above the supporting surface and can be easily separated into halves or quarters for edge and corner details. Any unevenness in the supporting surface or difference in the thickness of the slabs, can simply be adjusted out by the use of the 2mm thick Levelling Shims.
CARO SUPPORT makes the laying of paving slabs on roof or terrace areas, either directly on the waterproofing membrane or on high density insulation boards, a very simple and efficient operation.

Estimation of Quatities

Due to the fact the CARO SUPPORT is easily divisible into halves or quarters, ensuring no wastage, it is possible to allow one unit per paving slab for estimation purposes.

However as most Bills of Quantities quote paved areas in square metres the table alongside will give a fair indication of the number of Caro Supports required dependant upon the slab size and area.
