Vegetated Porous Pavements – Geoblock
The GEOBLOCK® Vegetated Porous Pavement System
is a series of high-strength pavers that protect turf and distribute loads for drivable grass pavements that are natural and stormwater friendly, Permeable pavements is a critical element in the equation for a successful q in all developments or expansions, not just LIDs. Residential, commercial, and industrial can benefit from permeable pavements that are successful, sustainable, and monitorable.
Advantages & Features:
- requires less base for the same performance as many industry pavers.
- rigid design has industry’s highest flexural modulus.
- high resistance to movement or breakage from vehicle turning stresses and torsional loads.
- distributes vehicle loads up to H-20 loadings with proper base.
Carson Newman University
