With creativity at its core, Artro’s strength lies in its ability to adapt its look depending on the colour, laying pattern or jointing material used.

Inspired by the intimate scale of traditional European clay pavers, Artro brings the concept right up to date, providing inspirational options for any project.

Moreover, its trafficable performance makes it the ideal paving solution for commercial, city centres or residential schemes. Its advanced PrimeTop surface ensures it retains its original appearance for longer.

Artro draws on a range of laying patterns, jointing materials and colour mixes to create distinctive schemes with personality. Choose from Tobermore’s comprehensive range of paving sets and kerbs to add additional character to each paving scheme.
