BEDDING AND JOINT SAND


A.

Provide bedding and joint sand as follows:


1.

Washed, clean, non-plastic, free from deleterious or foreign matter, symmetrically


shaped, natural or manufactured from crushed rock.

2.

Do not use limestone screenings, stone dust, or sand for the bedding sand
material that do not conform to the grading requirements of ASTM C 33.

3.

Do not use mason sand or sand conforming to ASTM C 144 for the bedding sand.
Note: Bedding sand durability is important for crosswalks and other vehicular
pavements exposed to high traffic. The engineer/architect is advised to evaluate
the hardness of bedding sand with the following test method when the pavers
and sand will be placed over concrete, or asphalt, and subject to major
thoroughfare traffic (over 1.5 million ESALs): One (1) 1.4 kg (3 lbs.) sample of
bedding sand can be randomly sampled from the sand source. The sample is
dried for 24 hours at 115 to 121 C. (240 to 250 F.). Obtain three (3) subsamples each weighing 0.2 kg (0.5 lbs.) by passing the main sample several times
through a riffle box. Carry out a sieve analysis test on each sub-sample
according to ASTM C 136. Re-mix each sub-sample and place in a nominal
quart/liter capacity porcelain jar with two (2) 25 mm (1 inch) diameter steel ball
bearings weighing 75 5 grams each. Rotate each jar at 50 rpm for six (6) hours.
Repeat the sieve analysis. Record the individual and average sieve analysis. For
each sample tested, the maximum increase in the percentages passing each sieve
and the maximum individual percent passing should be as follows:
Sieve Size
No. 200 ( 0.075 mm)
No. 100 (0.150 mm)
No. 50 (0.300 mm)

Max. Increase

Where concrete pavers are subject to vehicular traffic, utilize sands that are as
hard as practically available.

5.

Regional Content: Aggregates and sand shall be extracted and processed within
500 miles of the jobsite.

6.

Sieve according to ASTM C 136.

Note: Coarser sand than that specified in Table 2 below may be used for joint sand including C 33
or A23.1 material as shown in Table 1. Use material where the largest sieve size easily enters the
smallest joints. For example, if the smallest paver joints are 2 mm wide, use sand 2 mm and
smaller in particle size. If C 33 sand is used for joint sand, extra effort may be required in
sweeping material and compacting the pavers in order to completely fill the joints.
Joint Sand Material Requirements: Conform to the grading requirements of ASTM C 144 as
shown with modifications in Table 2 below:

ACCEPTABLE INSTALLERS
A.
See Submittals, Subsection1.03, heading D.
The elevations and surface tolerance of the base determine the final surface elevations of concrete
pavers. The paver installation contractor cannot correct deficiencies in the base surface with
additional bedding sand or by other means. Therefore, the surface elevations of the base should
be checked and accepted by the General Contractor or designated party, with written certification
to the paving subcontractor, prior to placing bedding sand and concrete pavers.

Unit Pavers

02780 - 5

3.02

EXAMINATION
A.

Acceptance of Site Verification of Conditions:


1.
General Contractor shall inspect, accept and certify in writing to the paver
installation subcontractor that site conditions meet specifications for the
following items prior to installation of interlocking concrete pavers.
a.
Verify that subgrade preparation, compacted density and elevations
conform to specified requirements.
b.
Verify that geotextiles, if applicable, have been placed according to
drawings and specifications.
c.
Verify that base materials, thickness, compacted density, surface
tolerances and elevations conform to specified requirements.
d.
Provide written density test results for soil subgrade, base materials to the
Owner, General Contractor and paver installation subcontractor.
e.
Verify location, type, and elevations of edge restraints, concrete collars
around utility structures, and drainage holes and inlets.
2.

3.03

3.04

Do not proceed with installation of bedding sand and interlocking concrete pavers
until subgrade soil and base conditions are corrected by the General Contractor
or designated subcontractor.

PREPARATION
A.

Verify base is clean and dry, certified by General Contractor as meeting material,
installation and grade specifications.

B.

Verify that base is ready to support sand, pavers and imposed loads.

INSTALLATION
A.

Spread bedding sand evenly over the base course and screed to a nominal 1 in. (25 mm)
thickness. Spread bedding sand evenly over the base course and screed rails, using the
rails and/or edge restraints to produce a nominal 1 in. (25 mm) thickness, allowing for
specified variation in the base surface.
1.
2.
3.

B.

Do not disturb screeded sand.


Screeded area shall not substantially exceed that which is covered by pavers in one
day.
Do not use bedding sand to fill depressions in the base surface.

When initially placed on the bedding sand, manually installed pavers often touch each
other, or their spacer bars if present. Joint widths and lines (bond lines) are straightened
and aligned to specifications with rubber hammers and pry bars as paving proceeds.
Lay pavers in pattern(s) shown on drawings. Place units hand tight without using
hammers. Make horizontal adjustments to placement of laid pavers with rubber
hammers as required.
Contact manufacturer of interlocking concrete paver units for recommended joint widths.

Unit Pavers

02780 - 6

3.05

C.

Provide joints between pavers between [1/16 in. and 3/16 in. (2 and 5 mm)] wide. No
more than 5% of the joints shall exceed [1/4 in. (6 mm)] wide to achieve straight bond
lines.

D.

Joint (bond) lines shall not deviate more than 1/2 in. (15 mm) over 50 ft. (15 m)
from string lines.

E.

Fill gaps at the edges of the paved area with cut pavers or edge units.

F.

Cut pavers to be placed along the edge with a masonry saw. Specify requirements for
edge treatment in paragraph below.

G.

Adjust bond pattern at pavement edges such that cutting of edge pavers is minimized. All
cut pavers exposed to vehicular tires shall be no smaller than one-third of a whole paver.
Cut pavers at edges as indicated on the drawings.

H.

Keep skid steer and forklift equipment off newly laid pavers that have not received initial
compaction and joint sand.

I.

Use a low-amplitude plate compactor capable of at least minimum of 4,000 lbf (18 kN) at
a frequency of 75 to 100 Hz to vibrate the pavers into the sand. Remove any cracked or
damaged pavers and replace with new units.

J.

Simultaneously spread, sweep and compact dry joint sand into joints continuously until
full. This will require at least 4 to 6 passes with a plate compactor. Do not compact
within 6 ft (2 m) of unrestrained edges of paving units.

K.

All work within 6 ft. (2 m) of the laying face must shall be left fully compacted with sandfilled joints at the end of each day or compacted upon acceptance of the work. Cover the
laying face or any incomplete areas with plastic sheets overnight if not closed with cut
and compacted pavers with joint sand to prevent exposed bedding sand from becoming
saturated from rainfall.

L.

Remove excess sand from surface when installation is complete. Excess joint sand can
remain on surface of pavers to aid in protecting their surface especially when additional
construction occurs after their installation. If this is the case, delete the article above and
use the article below. Designate person responsible for directing timing of removal of
excess joint sand.

M.

Allow excess joint sand to remain on surface to protect pavers from damage from other
trades. Remove excess sand when directed by Architect.

N.

Surface shall be broom clean after removal of excess joint sand.

FIELD QUALITY CONTROL

A.

The final surface tolerance from grade elevations shall not deviate more than 3/8 in.
(10 mm) under a 10 ft (3 m) straightedge.

B.

Check final surface elevations for conformance to drawings.


Note: For installations on a compacted aggregate base and soil subgrade, the top surface
of the pavers may be 1/8 to 1/4 in. (3 to 6 mm) above the final elevations after compaction.
This helps compensate for possible minor settling normal to pavements.

C.

The surface elevation of pavers shall be 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. (3 to 6 mm) above adjacent
drainage inlets, concrete collars or channels.

D.

Lippage: No greater than 1/8 in. (3 mm) difference in height between adjacent pavers.
Cleaning and sealing may be required for some applications. See ICPI Tech Spec 5,
