Albert Group Landscaping and Swimming Pools Install Beacon Hill Smooth XL Pool Deck in Hudson Valley, NY
Unilock Authorized Contractor, Albert Group Landscaping and Swimming Pools are in the process of installing a Beacon Hill Smooth XL pool deck in Hudson Valley, NY. To lighten the load of these hefty pavers, they’re using a two-man vacuum paver lifter to lift and place each paver.
The Steel Mountain color option has been chosen for the Beacon Hill Smooth XL pavers. These pavers offer a subtle coloring and smooth, uninterrupted surface with fewer jointing lines than if a smaller paver were to be used. Beacon Hill Smooth is also available in the warm, earthy colors of Sierra, Tuscany and Copper Ridge. This paver is ideal for poolsides, given its lifelong color retention granted by EnduraColor Facemix Technology. Its smooth yet non-slip surface makes it a safe and attractive option for poolsides as well.
The pavers are being placed onto a base of ⅛” clear chip stone. This will give the pool deck a degree of permeability and allow any pool water splashed out of the pool to be directed into subsurface drainage. This will also help to keep the pool cleaner during heavy rains, as dirt will be less likely to be washed into the pool.
The two-man vacuum paver can be an enormous asset when working with large or heavyweight pavers. Using a powerful vacuum pump, the suction pad attaches to the surface of the paver. The weight of the paver is then distributed between two crew members. Levers on the handles allow the crew members to disengage the pump so that the paver can be released. Using a similar principle, the UniLyft paver laying assist machine offers contractors an alternative that renders the paver virtually weightless. Rather than simply distributing the weight, the UniLyft relieves crew members of the weight of the paver using air pressure and vacuum and allows them to simply guide the paver into place and release it in position.
