LayingBeating

When the laying of the porphyry is done, the following step is to clean the flooring surface and to fill the cracks between the stony elements using sand or a mixture of sand and concrete.

After that, the surface is beat using flat mechanical vibrators that, pressing the floor, make the whole flooring even. The beating operation must be done more than once and must be followed by a water blast in order to perfectly pack down the soil.
