making a comeback as the gold standard for inner city roads.
The green community is pushing them for their real and varied benefits (easy to produce, they don·t crack
from the cold, and the gaps between bricks let rainwater run its natural course, replenishing aquifers), and
now the Dutch-made Tiger Stone machine is giving the brick-laying process a giant steroided boost.
Tiger Stone literally lays brick roads, and it does it with minimal human assistance, outputting brick pathways
as wide as six meters. With its gravity assisted process, it can put down 400 square meters of road daily.
The angled motorized surface rolls downwards as workers pack bricks on it with the aid of a forklift. The bricks
fall into the right pattern thanks to gravity.
Repeat process until brick supplies are exhausted, or there is no more room for roads. There can be no other

The amazing µTiger Stone¶ from Holland is an automatic pavement-laying machine, making brick roads just
in minutes. The machine is fed with bricks or paving stones, then weaves and rolls them out like a carpet.
This µTiger Stone¶ machine can lay out 400 meters of road a day without leaving any waste or debris. The
magical machine features a gravity-based system which automatically packs the bricks with ease.
Brick roads have been around for centuries, as they were easily repairable when damaged and could tolerate excessive
amounts of water due to natural drainage amongst the cracks. T hey looked great too!
Newer adaptations of brick roads allow water to be infused through the cracks back into the ground again, but due to the labo ur
intensity involved tarmac remains the most common surfacing material. Tarmac is not only more cost effecti ve, is saves a lot of
time and can be laid quickly and efficiently.
This may start to change thanks to a clever new machine known only as ³Tiger Stone´ introduced by Netherlands based
construction company. The device works to create a flawless, sustainable brick surface, seemingly magical, but all thanks to
taking clever advantage of gravity. An angled plain is loaded with bricks by the operator.
As the machine inches forward over a sand based layer, the hopper allows the Tiger Stone to lay out 400 meters o f road a day,
with a potential width of 6 meters. Impressive Stuff!
