Truckcell Heavy-Duty Porous Paver
Heavy duty porous paver allows formation of heavy duty permeable grass or retained gravel pavements.
Truckcell Heavy-Duty Porous Paver
Truckcell™ is a heavy-duty cellular porous paving system designed for intensive usage and high-load traffic applications. The permeable paver can be filled with topsoil and seeded or with gravel to provide a structural surface for HGV traffic, trucks, coaches and fork-lift trucks.
- Lightweight compared to permeable concrete block paving systems
- Plastic pavers resist cracking under stress
- Reduces construction time compared to concrete paving
- High strength alternative to concrete permeable paving
- High load-bearing capacity
- Produces a permeable surface
- Higher quality of grass establishment compared to concrete alternatives
- Source control as part of SuDS system
- Manufactured from recycled plastic
- Fully recyclable
Truckcell™ is a thick heavy-duty porous paver manufactured from 100% recycled plastic and is strong enough to withstand trafficking from vehicles with high wheel loadings such as trucks, buses, fire appliances and refuse vehicles. The high load-bearing capacity of the porous pavers make them suitable for applications such as HGV parking and access roads, fork-lift loading areas, car parks, coach parks and emergency vehicle access routes.

The polymer construction of Truckcell permeable paving grids is semi-flexible, giving them a greater resistance to cracking than permeable concrete paving grid alternatives. Each Truckcell grid unit weighs less than 12kg, keeping it well within Health and Safety manual handling guidelines.
Truckcell is a high-performance lighter-weight product than grass concrete pavers, that facilitates simple manual installation and can greatly reduce installation time and site plant costs. Once installed, the open-cell structure of Truckcell paving grids is filled with a free-draining gravel for a gravel paving surface or a grass rootzone material to form a permeable grass paving surface which can provide surface water source control within a SuDS design. The Truckcell paving cells are typically filled with either an angular gravel or with a growing media and then seeded to provide a green vegetated finish in accordance with the aesthetic and maintenance requirements of the project application.
