Sustainable permeable paving from ABG Geosynthetics

Click for a selection of successful Permeable Paving Surface Projects

Using a permeable pavement solves a number of problems associated with managing stormwater in a sustainable way. The hydraulic capacity of a porous pavement can accommodate rainfall landing directly on to it, and also from adjacent surface catchments including roofs.

The combination of surface options also facilitates an enhanced level of flexibility and choice in satisfying the aesthetic requirements of the project. Stabilised gravel can produce a much wider variety of different finishes to compliment the development than a porous concrete system could offer.

ABG offer systems that can be used to create grass or gravel finishes for varying levels of traffic. Sudspave can be used with traffic such as cars and vans, while Truckcell provides a solution for HGV and other heavy vehicles.

The design and specification of the individual components within a sustainable paving / permeable pavement solution is entirely project specific but will typically comprise a porous surface laid over an open graded granular sub-base that satisfies the structural and hydraulic requirements of the project.

Geosynthetics in Sustainable Pavements

Geosynthetics play an important part in the design and long term performance of porous paving structures.

Ground Stabilisation

Permeable paving provides a solution for reinforcing pavements for traffic where a gravel or grass surface is required. Plastic porous pavers are suitable for access roads and car parking areas.

ABG Sudspave is an example of a permeable gravel or grass surface reinforcement system

Where a fully green finish is required our Advanced Turf System can be used to create a grass surface that drains quickly and provides the bearing capacity to deal with almost any circumstances.

Filtration & Separation

The use of geotextiles such as Terrex NW as both filtration and separation layers. This greatly improves the quality of water discharged from within the system whilst also preventing clogging of the drainage system.

Reinforcement

Abgrid geogrids and Abweb cellular reinforcement can also be incorporated to enhance the structural strength which allows the paving to be constructed thinner, safer and use less materials.

Drainage & Attenuation

Also, the use of innovative geocomposite void formers such as Ecobloc or Deckdrain to create cost-effective attenuation or drainage layers can further reduce the depth of stone required within the pavement construction.
