Tectura Designs has added a four-color blending process to its portfolio of concrete rooftop, on-grade and architectural pavers. This capability, made possible by Tectura Designs’ investment in technology and manufacturing facilities, adds to the company’s diverse portfolio of paving products and its custom capabilities.
 
The four-color blends provide customers creative control and the ability to create one-of-a-kind gradients with custom orders. Tectura Designs’ Stone River series is the first line to feature this four-color blending, offering six standard color blends.
  
The four-color blending technology is the latest innovation to come out of Tectura Designs’ 100,000-square-foot paver manufacturing facility. Tectura has delivered hydraulically machine-pressed pavers for more than 40 years, and the facility, which opened in 2016, gives customers creative control, including:

  • The ability to customize the color palette of any paver, and oversee the dye- and aggregate-mixing processes
  • Standard color options and an array of finishes and surface textures
  • More than 60 sizes
  • A selection of samples and aggregate combinations
  • High performance thresholds, with H-20, H-25, HS-20 and HS-25 loading capabilities for both light and heavyweight vehicular traffic
