Product details

Stone Effect Concrete Paving

Fairford Grey slabs are part of Bekstone's Premium Range of decorative concrete paving. 

The classic weathered appearance and natural stone looks of Fairford Paving provides for a timeless patio which is suitable for relaxing or entertaining. The concrete slabs look like hewn stone, and have subtle shallow riven surfaces that offer and ideal base for patio furniture and seating. This shallow riven surface ensures that tables and chairs will sit firmly on the paving, making Fairford slabs suitable for most patios.

As well as their shallow riven finish the surface of the slabs are also lightly textured to provide better anti-slip performance and grip under-foot.

Uniform Colour

The Fairford slabs will provide your patio with a consistent look and feel that closely mimics riven natural stone, but additionally offers uniform colour and tonal variation. Because these slabs are manufactured rather than quarried their aesthetics are factory controlled - and so they provide precise and consistent colour and tonal control - meaning you get exactly the look and feel you were expecting.

This colour pigment uniformity and aesthetic control/predictability are the main performance advantages presented by concrete paving over natural stone paving.


Bekstone are specialist in UK concrete and reconstituted stone manufacturing and make paving products of the highest quality. This means these Fairford slabs are hardwearing, durable, and will last many, many years.


Fairford paving is available with three different size-format slabs. These are sold as single size packs and t is also available in a mixed size “contractor pack” containing all three size-formats.

  • 300mm x 300mm
  • 600mm x 300mm
  • 600mm x 600mm

Natural Stone Means Natural Variation

Please remember that natural stone is a processed natural product and therefore has unique elements, features, patterns and tones within each stone slab. That is the essential characteristic that natural stone offers - the unique variation of each stone, and the natural charm and beauty that those individual slabs convey when laid together in your garden landscape. If you are looking for more uniformity and control of colours and patterns, then porcelain paving or concrete paving might be more what you want.

Laying Advice

To install and lay concrete patio paving slabs, you'll need to do the following steps:

  1. Measure up and mark out your patio - ensure you calculate both 1) area in square metres (m2)  and 2) the fall (slope) required for drainage.
  2. Dig out the patio area to create the substrate (220 -230 mm depth).
  3. Lay the sub-base of MOT Type-1 hardcore (compacted & 150 mm depth).
  4. Ensure you mix and blend the various paving packs to ensure the patio has a blended look, as packs can
  5. Coat the slabs' underside with priming slurry to improve their bond and help prevent moisture transfer. As concrete is porous, priming slurry will help protect the slabs from moisture transfer and capillary action from beneath the slabs.
  6. Trowel-in and lay a bedding course of mortar mix (50 mm depth) immediately prior to laying each slab.
  7. Lay the paving slabs on to the mortar bed and tamp down. Ensure you leave the desired joint spacing between the slabs and the slabs are “level” to the fall.
  8. Leave to set for 24 hours, so the mortar mix can cure enough for you to walk on the slabs.
  9. Fill the joints between the paving (pointing) with jointing compound.
  10. Optional: protect your paving by sealing the slabs with a purpose made sealant (natural finish or colour enhancing).

To calculate the areas of paving in square-metres (m2), the amount of sub-base hardcore or the amount of sand and cement you'll need for the mortar mix bedding course, please refer to our paving calculators.

Care & Maintenance

Concrete is a porous material and contains tiny capillaries and micro-fissures throughout its structure. Consequently, concrete paving is susceptible to water-based chemical erosion (acidic corrosion), physical erosion (frost action), and from staining from waterborne grime, salts and other mineral and particulate deposits. Therefore, as the UK has high winter humidity (generally 80-90%) and damp conditions are the norm, we recommend that you help protect and elongate the life of your paving by sealing the slabs against the water/damp based issues. Our impregnating sealers are designed to enter the capillaries and micro-fissures in the slabs, blocking those spaces to prevent water entering the paving.

  1. Natural finish sealer
  2. Colour enhancing sealer

In addition to sealing the slabs, we recommend ensuring you brush away leaves, dirt and other detritus regularly, especially in the autumn and winter when leaves, twigs, seeds and other windfall materials are likely to fall on your patio. If left on your paving, especially if damp, and worse still, allowed to rot down and become mulch-like, your paving will almost certainly acquire brown stains from the release of tannins from the windfall materials (think a used tea bag left on a kitchen counter for a model of what will happen).

As well as brushing off dirt and windfall materials, give your patio a hose down with water every so often. Use a low-pressure hose or keep any jet-wash far enough away from the slabs to ensure you don't damage them with the high-pressure water jet. For more stubborn stains and the build-up of grime, we recommend using a specialist non-acidic patio cleaner.
