Retained gravel, free draining ground reinforcement using ABG Sudspave 40 permeable paving grids
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.
Grass reinforcement using ABG Sudspave 40 permeable paving grids
Sudspave permeable plastic cellular paving grids are designed to be installed onto a stone subbase 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.
