The Proven Pour-in-Place Permeable Paving Material

Made in America

An eco-friendly, green product made in the U.S.A., Porous Pave is a pour-in-place permeable paving material with up to 29 percent void space and 6,300 gallons per hour per square foot permeability. Its benefits have been proven in successful installations for a wide variety of permeable pavement applications in regions from Massachusetts to Arizona, California to Florida, Minnesota to Texas, and most points in between.

Superior Permeability

  • More void space than permeable pavers, pervious asphalt or pervious concrete – more porosity, more permeability for more rainwater infiltration
  • Smaller installations deliver the same stormwater mitigation as more extensive, and more expensive, installations of other permeable pavement materials
  • Reduces the need for other on-site measures (retention ponds, swales) – more site area remains useable

  • Three formulations – XL, XLB, XLS – matched to the specific requirements of different applications
  • Eight standard colors, multiple custom color mixes
  • Pour-in-place flexibility to conform to curves, express designs
  • Installs on hillsides, steep grades up to 30 degrees
  • As a topcoat, covers and restores old concrete, asphalt, brick, or wood surfaces – eliminates the cost, disruption and waste of tear-outs

  • Two inches of XL over a compacted aggregate base supports low-speed traffic areas, including loading docks
  • Two inches of XLS over a compacted aggregate base has the strength for pool decks, splash pads, play areas
  • One inch of XLB directly on bunker floors guards golf course bunkers for years
  • Withstands freeze-thaw cycles, frost, and ground movement without heaving or cracking

Man installing Porous paveEasy, Low-impact Installation

  • Mix on site, pour in place – takes half the time to install as bricks, pavers
  • Applied as a single monolithic pour – no expansion strips
  • Low-impact installation, minimal site disruption, reduced risk of damage to landscapes – no big trucks, no heavy equipment
  • Safe and Slip-resistant

  • No puddles – even in low areas, even during and after heavy rains
  • After snow removal, residual water permeates down – no freezing, no ice
  • ADA compliant

Environmentally Friendly

eco-friendly

  • Best Management Practice (BMP) to retain and infiltrate stormwater
  • Decreases the volume, slows the velocity of runoff
  • Reduces erosion
  • Made with rubber recycled from scrap tires – every 1,000 square feet of two-inch Porous Pave removes 300 old tires from the waste stream
