Dutch term or phrase: klinkerverharding
I'm currently working on translating loose terminology for a construction company, and am experiencing difficulties with this particular phrase, as "verharding" can mean a number of things, ranging from "hardening" and "asphalting" to "paving".

I am tempted to translate it as "clinker paving" (their additional activities include
"straatkolking", "riolering" and "afrastering"), but am not 100% sure.

As always, suggestions are more than welcome!

Thanks,

Pikey

Explanation:
"Klinkerverharding" very likely means the same as "klinkerbestrating", which my Property Lexicon renders as clinker paving
