CEMEX says that ReadyPave Camden retains the classic appearance of a traditional stone sett without a secondary manufacturing process to ‘rumble’ the pavers. It adds that this creates a more sustainable product by using less energy, and also reduces manual handling and eliminates dust and waste. ReadyPave Camden’s rustic appearance is designed to be softer and more subtle than rumbled paving setts.

The new product is different to CEMEX’s previous multi-sett paving as it is available in a three-size multipack, which can be combined to form various patterns with consistent row widths, to suit any design. By combining all three sizes into one multipack CEMEX says this has reduced packaging and eliminated the potential for waste product on site.

Readypave Camden is the latest innovation from CEMEX Urbanisation Solutions, CEMEX’s strategic business providing sustainable ways to solve urbanisation issues.

"This innovative sustainable paving solution developed by our UK urbanisation solutions team demonstrates our relentless determination to build a better and more sustainable future for our customers and their clients," said Marcelo Catalá, VP of urbanisation solutions for CEMEX EMEAA.

ReadyPave Camden is available in four different colours, with bespoke options available on request. It was named after the traditional cobbled streets of the iconic Camden market in London, with the name chosen by members of CEMEX’s team. The product is suitable for the domestic market, particularly for use on driveways and housing estates.
