CROSS SPACERS

Ingeniously simple, simply ingenious: Our cross-spacers keep your slabs and flagstones the due distance apart – and do so beautifully evenly. A great benefit for water circulation too!

The classic format: ground cover design using setts or ceramic, concrete or stone paving slabs with joints spaced exactly evenly. In order to ensure on a grit bed that this laying technique is done neatly, cross spacers are essential.

They both guarantee an even gap between the stones and ensure good drainage of water.

PLATTENFIX cross spacers keep the corners of your stones and slabs out of harm's way, reduce ground sealing and simultaneously divert rainwater into the soil. The environmentally compatible spacers made from recycled material are suitable for all slab sizes and materials. We even think about nature when it comes to the packaging: The cross spacers are packed in highly recyclable, environmentally friendly boxes and we largely refrain from using any plastic packaging.

Made of polypropylene, the PLATTENFIX cross-spacers are ideal for laying slabs on a bed of grit. They guarantee an even pattern of joints and good drainage. Our serrated cross-spacers in widths of 3, 4 and 6 mm grip particularly well.

Advantages

 
  • Protect corners
  • Let water through very well
  • As the joints are open, rainwater is diverted off into the earth
  • Reduces ground sealing
  • Made of recycled material
  • Environmentally compatible
  • Resistant to weathering
  • Even pattern of joints
  • Suitable for all sorts of materials and slab sizes
 

Laying instructions

  • Excavation of the area from c. 40 cm depth 
  • Setting the edging 
  • Build in mineral mix (base course) made up of 10 – 15 cm gravel, pebble size 10 – 45 mm
  • Using a vibrator plate, compact layer by layer 
  • On top of the base course comes the paving bed of grit and sand 
  • Using a wood/metal bar, smooth down the fine grit layer (building in a drop!) 
  • Lay paving in the desired pattern 
  • Brush crushed stone fines or similar into the joints
  • Compact again and brush-fill joints anew
  • Gauge the maximum height of the top edge of the setts or paving slab surface in order to determine the height of the grit bed 
  • Decide on product 
  • Working out from a fixed corner (right angle!), start laying
  • In the corner you lay corner pieces and on the edge T-shape pieces
  • The slabs/setts must lie tightly up against the cross-spacers with no air gap.
