Grasscrete

ABOUT

What is Grasscrete Paving?

Occasionally confused with pre-cast blocks, Grasscrete is in fact a cast on-site cellular reinforced concrete system with voids created by fiber pulp or plastic void formers.

 

What are its benefits?

  • Reduce in runoff volume
  • Reduce in peak discharge rate
  • Recharge groundwater
  • Improve water quality

 

The selection of Grasscrete is one of the easiest ways to achieve LEEDÆ points due to the reduction in heat island effect, management of storm water runoff, recycled content used in the application process as well as the concrete and sub-base, the long lifespan and the low maintenance required.

 

Why is it effective?

Load bearing up to 40 tons gross vehicle weight

Resists differential settlement

Reduces sub-base depths

Eliminates curb edges

Not reliant upon grass for stability

Optimum drainage capability

 

Where is it used?

In addition to its ability to withstand traffic loads, Grasscrete is also used for projects in the water environment. Tested to flow rates in excess of 26 feet per second, this self-venting paving system is ideal for armoring the following:

  • Sustained Access
  • Fire and Emergency Access
  • Parking lots
  • Medians
  • Pedestrian Access
  • Water Management
  • Overflow Parking
  • Spillways
  • Storm/drainage channels
  • River and sea defenses
