There are so many different concrete pave stones available on the market, that it is no longer possible to keep track.
This raises the question as to whether a single paver clamp is sufficient for the countless plate forms with their different thicknesses and package sizes? Our answer is clear: Yes! Other manufacturers rely on providing up to five or more different models, we have designed a single system clamp to meet all your possible needs.
- Pave stone positions of 0,6 m² (6.5 ft²) to 1,5 m² (16 ft²) can be processed without a problem.
- The Multi 6 paver clamp clamps thin pave stones of 4.0 cm (1.57") up to thick 24.0 cm (9.44") pave stones and a range of pave stone cluster sizes and volumes from 130 kg (286 lbs) to 550 kg (1,212 lbs).
- The clamp can deal with uneven pave stone groups as easily as it clamps even groups.
- The Multi 6 moves the pave stones into the running bond pattern easily, regardless of whether the rectangular paver has been laid correctly or not.
- Even anti-slip pave stones can be moved into the running bond pattern easily.
- Pave stones in herring bone pattern with or without half stones are laid without problem.
- Whether concrete or brick pavers, the clamp does its job without any trouble.
Protects your materials
- The intelligent 6-arm clamping technology means that only 60 bar hydraulic pressure is required. Clamping protects the transport of the pave stones.
Our successful experience shows: many of the Optimas paver clamps have already laid some 1,000,000 ft² of pavers without any trouble. This proves our worth and the advantages of products “Made in Germany.”
