Sudspave Permeable Pavers
Unique porous paver design allows formation of high strength free draining surface for a reinforced grass or gravel fill.
Sudspave Permeable Pavers
Sudspave is a permeable paving grid system of interlocking cellular plastic porous pavers designed for the stabilisation of trafficked grass or gravel surfaces. Used where a free-draining permeable gravel or grass car park, access road or driveway is required.
- High load bearing capacity
- Pre-connected for rapid installation
- Infilled with grass or gravel to suit project requirements
- Retains gravel within the cells
- Provides a permeable trafficable surface
- SuDs source control - storm water management
- Protects grass from wear, rutting and smearing
Sudspave porous plastic paver applications include grass and gravel car parks, emergency access routes, maintenance vehicle access roads, cycle paths, retained gravel driveways, parking areas and pedestrian paths.
Sudspave offers a cost-effective, robust and aesthetic solution for many applications where gravel retention is required and where source-control of surface water forms part of a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) design. For a reinforced grass surface, the interlocking grass pavers can be filled with a soil rootzone and seeded to produce a reinforced grass surface suitable for vehicles and pedestrian traffic.
Sudspave permeable plastic cellular paving grids are designed to be installed onto a stone sub-base construction incorporating Geogrids to minimise material and construction costs, the paving units may also be considered for ‘reduced-dig’ applications where the depth of excavation has been limited due to archeological or SSSI concerns, or in tree-root protection zones.
To aid rapid installation, four individual Sudspave porous paving grid units form a pre-connected 1m² section and the paving system clips and locks together to provide a continuous integral surface which is able to resist deformation and dislocation. Once laid, the porous plastic paving units can be filled with either an angular gravel for a hard wearing surface or with a formulated growing medium into which grass seed is sown to provide a vegetated finish suitable for occasional trafficking.
