Two new paver styles, Beale Street and Esplanade, bring the total number of offerings in North Carolina–based Pine Hall Brick Co.’s product line up to 53.
Pine Hall says the pavers are the same color all the way through and will not fade. Beale Street pavers (shown) come in a composite of gray, burgundy, and red; a single paver may contain all three colors, just one, or any combination in between. Sizes include 4 by 8 inches for installation in sand, and 3 5/8 by 7 5/8 inches for mortar applications. Available thicknesses are 1 3/8 inches, 2 1/4 inches, and 2 3/4 inches. If a permeable installation is desired, these pavers can be installed over an aggregate base that captures runoff.
The Beale Street line has two versions: “Rumbled” pavers have been mechanically distressed to look old; “Courtyard Straight Edge” pavers look new. Prices range from $3 to $3.25 per square foot for Rumbled and $2 to $2.25 per square foot for Courtyard.
Esplanade pavers (not shown) are available in a number of colors and measure 2 3/4 inches by 8 3/8 inches, which is somewhat longer and narrower than is typical. They’re 2 3/4 inches thick and have chamfered edges on the wear surface. Unlike Beale Street pavers, these pavers can’t be used for a permeable installation, because they lack integral nibs for spacing. Esplanade pavers cost between $2.25 and $2.50 per square foot.
