How do I cut concrete flags?

Once all full size flags have been laid use cut flags to complete the area. Where cut flags are required avoid cuts which are less than a quarter of the original plan size. The use of in-board cuts can help to achieve this. Flags should be cut using a masonry saw with water suppressant. Full PPE must be worn. When 25% of a flag needs to be cut the remaining piece should be cut from the internal corner of the cut to the external corner of the flag at an angle of 45 degrees.

For best practice cut the flags away from the area being paved to avoid cutting dust staining the newly installed flags.
