Permeable pavers use a combination of interlocking grids that are laid over a prepared subsurface and one of several fill materials, such as gravel or crushed limestone. Once the fill material is compacted into the grids, it creates a 100% permeable, strong, durable parking surface that is virtually maintenance free.
A parking surface made from permeable pavers requires very little ongoing maintenance, which reduces long-term costs.
Permeable Paver systems have many residential, commercial and industrial applications such as:
- Stormwater management
- Dust control
- Flood mitigation
- Commercial parking lots
- Stormwater detention
- and more.
Creating an area in your business that can handle everything from a toddler’s walk to a large commercial vehicle is a daunting task. Most engineers and architects immediately turn to traditional materials, such as concrete and asphalt. But the same old paving methods are many. These materials may require regular maintenance, cause flooding, pollutant runoff, […]
Which is the Best Choice for Your Paving Project Developers, architects and civil engineers face a critical task. They need to provide enough parking and surface storage for their projects, but in an environmentally conscious way. This requires… Using paving surfaces that rainwater can infiltrate instead of running off Using environmentally friendly materials Traditional paving […]
There are two primary types of pavement: pervious and impervious. Pervious pavement is designed to let water naturally seep through it and go down into the soil beneath. Impervious pavement does not allow water to seep through it. Instead, with impervious pavement, water runs off into storm drains that are lined along the road or […]
Did you know that a large percentage of roads in America are unpaved? These types of roads can be found almost anywhere, but they present a unique set of challenges when it comes to maintaining them over the long term. Unpaved roads produce a lot of dust, for instance. This dust is easily blown away […]
How to Update Your Stormwater Management Tactics The biggest problem posed by new construction is a little ironic. New developments and urban sprawl continue at a record pace, but the problem isn’t that cities are changing — it’s that they are changing in the same old ways. No matter how innovative our new buildings are, […]
A SMALL ACTION for BIG CHANGE Every little bit helps. And you are in control. When you put that plastic jug or shampoo bottle into your green recycling container, that’s the first step to reducing plastic waste in the oceans and landfills. But your impact doesn’t have to end there. The world needs products […]
The Complete Guide to Permeable Paving Systems Permeable paving systems are porous, so they allow water to infiltrate the pavement and drain into the ground or sub-base rock underneath. These paving systems are just as strong and durable as traditional paving materials such as concrete, asphalt, or compacted gravel. Several types of porous paving grids […]
Solving Each of the Problems With Traditional Paving Methods Concrete, asphalt, and gravel are the most common paving materials today. However, their popularity doesn’t negate their shortcomings, and those shortcomings can have a much greater impact than many people might realize. In addition to the excessive costs of building concrete, maintaining asphalt, or dealing with […]
