Permeable Paver

ABOUT

What are Permeable Pavers?

Permeable interlocking concrete pavements are concrete or stone units with open spaces. Between the units, storm water is able to drain through a stone base layer for on-site infiltration and filtering.

 

What are its benefits?

  • Manage runoff
  • Control pollutants
  • Provide more water and rooting space for urban trees
  • Give an architectural appearance
  • Bear both light and heavy traffic
  • Flush de-icing salts out of soil
  • Aesthetically appealing

 

Why is it effective?

Permeable Pavers enable stormwater to to infiltrate into the ground between the Pavers. Pavers are installed over layers of gravel which allow water to infiltrate into the ground. This reduces the amount of stormwater runoff flowing from driveways, walkways and parking lots. The Pavers can be retrofitted to replace existing concrete or asphalt areas and, properly installed, will require little maintenance.

 

Where Is it used?

  • Parking areas
  • Light traffic area
  • Residential streets, sidewalks and driveways
  • Pedestrian walkways
  • Greenhouses
  • Walking and cycle paths
  • Service or emergency access lanes
  • Road and airport shoulders
