Safest Aggregate Pavements for Substation Access
Aggregate is commonly used for electrical substation pavements and transformer pads to create a safe, non-conductive insulation layer between workers and the ground. The traditional aggregate surface solutions offers high resistivity control for step and touch electrical potentials, but must contain fines for a stable surface able to resist heavy vehicle stresses. GEOWEB-confinement allows use of open-graded base course (OGBC) with no fines-providing greater surface permeability and a more stable, no rutting driving surface. GEOWEB-confined OGBC pavements deliver exceptional drainage, prevent accumulation of dangerous surface water ponding, require virtually no maintenance and create safer surfaces for workers.
