How to Pack Bluestone Pool Coping Tiles

It is important that your supplier uses correct packing methods, especially for pool coping tiles as the corners will chip easily during transport from China to Australia. Using foam strips between the tiles helps prevent damage to corners.

As shown in the photo are Bluestone drop face tiles, all the contact areas between tiles are carefully protected by foam strips. Even Bluestone is very dense stone & each drop face tile is cut into one piece without joint, appropriate packing, protection and transportation are needed to maintain the top quality of individual Bluestone pavers.
