(The “calcestre” consists of a 10-12 cm screed of various layers of crushed limestone laid in different sizes on a normal road-type substrate. (…) The whole of the layers manages to form, through compaction and decomposition of the limestone gravel, a crust particularly suitable for pedestrian pavements).
Throughout history, the development of human activities and the need to move, both pedestrian and on wheels, have highlighted a series of drawbacks that characterise pavements made of earth or aggregates rich in silt and / or clay. All the inconveniences arise from a single problem: a poor link between the grains that make up the dirt roads.
The use of natural binders allows the construction of roads and pavements very similar to the natural ones in clay; the peculiarities of this product are the maintenance of the natural color, the permeability of the aggregates, their considerable increase in strength and elasticity and the ease of installation; all this means that it lends itself to the use of local inert materials or to the reuse of inert materials already present on site.
The natural paving is versatile and ideal for a wide range of uses: cycle paths, pedestrian paths, rural roads, wooded roads, paths in parks and gardens, cemetery roads, sports facilities, playgrounds, parking lots, golf courses, squares, sites archaeological.
