These narrow concrete pavers use proprietary casting technologies to create a handmade look with impressive durability.
Add an old-world feel to your new patio, walkway, or driveway with these elegant Copthorne concrete pavers from Unilock. Inspired by the bricks seen in centuries-old streets across Europe, these pavers use several proprietary casting technologies to create a product that both looks handmade and has impressive strength and durability compared to common paving bricks. These slender pavers look especially good in a herringbone pattern if you want to add character to a large patio, but they’re equally suited to a simple running-bond pattern if you prefer a more linear look. Their narrow profile also lets you lay them in gentle curves without making any cuts. If you really want to make a statement, you can forgo the more familiar red and brown hues and choose pavers in one of the eye-catching blue-grays—or even mix and match. Copthorne pavers are tough enough to be left unfinished and can be installed on a standard paver base, but top them with a clear sealer and fill the joints with polymeric sand for an extra-clean, low-maintenance look. The pavers cost about $11 per sq. ft.
