Hard landscape materials supplier, Marshalls is extending its established concrete paving portfolio with the introduction of Lunar – a next generation concrete paver, which uses cutting edge technologies to deliver a uniquely beautiful aesthetic that lasts.
Developed with UK designers, Lunar is a versatile range of granite-inspired blends for the commercial and domestic markets, brought to life through a new patented colour process. Colour application technology adheres each pigment in a random pattern, creating a multihued, subtle and elegant appearance which is unique to every individual block.
This pioneering three-stage colouration process combines harmonious tones of on-trend greys, pastel pinks and earthy blue-green hues to deliver a distinctive range of four complementary colours: Ice, Rosa, Silver Dust and Shadow.
The palette, which is inspired by the depth and variation of the moon’s surface, offers choice and design flexibility for any hard landscaping application. Lunar blocks and flags are available in a smooth finish with pencil-chamfered edges, creating a modern yet timeless classic look suitable for both pedestrianised and trafficked areas.
Lunar is the first product from Marshalls to use the cutting-edge colour system, which is complemented by MaxiMix Technology™ to lock in colour and lock out the elements. Their high-quality blend of pigments, aggregates and binders creates an inseparable bonded surface layer that stands the test of time.
Featuring 30% more pigment and 30% more water-proofer than a standard concrete block product, Maximix Technology™ combines durability with enriched colour to give Lunar a greater resistance to UV fading and weather damage, protecting the finished aesthetic of a project for years to come.
Alice Turner, Product Marketing Director, at Marshalls, said: “Lunar is the first in a series of planned innovations Marshalls are bringing to market over the course of the next 12 months. We’ve invested considerably in new technologies to drive new product development and meet changing customer needs.
”Lunar has been created with the tastes and trends of the UK market in mind and with four colours and a range of plan sizes on offer, we believe it offers designers the flexibility to conceive contemporary spaces with a fresh, new look that will stand the test of time.
“The technology developed for the manufacture of Lunar presents a raft of opportunities for further innovation so the current range is just the beginning - there will be more to come from Lunar in the not too distant future.”
To make product selection even easier, from this month, Marshalls new digital product visualizer tool is live on the website meaning designers can see how Lunar could enhance their scheme from the comfort of their desk.
