Concrete pavers consist of cement and aggregate of small rocks and minerals. They are moulded to have a very defined shape by a vibration process that combines the miscellaneous materials into a mass of density. As the pigments are not inherent to the material, over time the colour erodes, eventually exposing the raw form of the aggregate. Interlocking pavers are also available and offer high-strength paving solutions for driveways, walkways, and patio floors. They have tight surfaces that is resilient enough to withstand all kinds of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. The design of segmental paving system enables each singular each unit to expand and contract without producing surface cracks. As such, they are not easily impacted by seasonal changes or minor seismic movements.

Polyurethane is a highly flexible and abrasion-resistant floor coating that is known for its shine and longevity. Polyurethane can be applied over most existing floors and offer a great walking convenience due its high elasticity, which makes them more resistant towards scratches and dents as it helps absorb some impact. Its performance makes them a preferred choice in freezing chambers and multideck carparks since the elastic coating can act as a waterproofing and crack-bridging layer. Polyurethanes are resistant to a broade range and concentrations of chemicals and its durability allows minimal maintenance. Ranging from satin to semi-gloss to high-gloss, optional wear and safety additives can also be incorporated into the topcoat texture of the polyurethane floor.
