The Future of Sustainable Paving.
What if paving could be 100% permeable? Absorb floodwaters instead of adding to runoff. Modular and as easy to build as building blocks. Attractive with a natural aesthetic. Strong for heavy use and loads without cracks and stains. Cool. Safe and eco-friendly. Sustainable. And less expensive than concrete. Parking lots that detain stormwater, reduce flooding and filter pollutants from our water supply. TRUEGRID is the sustainable, eco-friendly porous paving alternative to concrete and asphalt. Re-imagine your paving.
