Aggregate Porous Paving Delivers Infiltration & Storage

Control stormwater infiltration, manage runoff, and create storage with porous pavements designed for every day traffic. With highly permeable open-graded aggregate infill, GEOPAVE pavers promote a high rate of percolation, limit runoff, and perform as a natural on-site retention system. Herringbone cells and integrated mesh bottom keeps aggregate in place even under heavy traffic use. Marking parking spaces and other delineation areas is a SNAP with GEOPAVE SNAP delineators. GEOPAVE porous pavements are the economical alternative to porous asphalt and pervious concrete.

GEOPAVE porous pavement system

Optimal Load Distribution.

The GEOPAVE system’s shared wall system, strong connection clips and load-spreading mesh bottom (snow-shoe effect) offer an industry-high load transfer capability, eliminating ruts even in high traffic areas.

GEOPAVE application for loading stress

Resistance to Torsional Loading Stresses.

The shared wall system and strong connection clips create a framework that resists movement or breakage from vehicle turning stresses and torsional loads. Rolled systems fail under torsional loading.

Less Base Requirements.

GEOPAVE pavements require far less base depth than rolled systems. Less base = less cutting, less haul in and out, and less expense.

construction equipment on GEOPAVE porous pavement system

Drive On Unfilled Units Speeds Construction.

GEOPAVE units are strong enough to drive on pre-filled with construction equipment. Flimsy braces between rolled product cells offer little load support, break easily, and cannot be driven on unfilled.

Integral Mesh Bottom Keeps Aggregate Contained.

Unique monolithic mesh bottom keeps aggregate infill contained. This prevents the “lifting” effect caused by the downward migration of granular fill and is stronger than glued-on fabric solutions.

Ships in Stable, Easy to Handle Pallet Cubes

GEOPAVE units are shipped in stackable pallet cubes and cover a large area per pallet. Rolled products ship only two rolls per pallet standing on end and are not stackable without damaging connectors.

Aesthetic Surface Pattern.

The herringbone cell pattern within the GEOPAVE units offers an aesthetic appeal. Create visual delineation with multiple colored stone to establish walk areas and barrier-free parking stalls.

High Stormwater Infiltration.

The GEOPAVE system with open-graded aggregate allows the fastest stormwater infiltration. Rolled systems with glued fabric bottoms clog and percolate much slower.

Units Lay Flat, Install Easily.

GEOPAVE rigid paving units lay flat, yet contour to the site. Units join together quickly, and require no stakes. Rolled products won’t lay flat due to their memory; making connector clips difficult to connect and requiring hundreds of stakes per unit area.

How GEOPAVE® Pavers are Designed to Work for Your Project

GEOPAVE paving units are designed for maximum load transfer and support, resistance to traffic stresses, maximum infill stabilization and stormwater storage.

  • Performs to an H/HS25 loading with minimal base.
  • Reduces overall installation costs by requiring far less depth of base than lighter-weight or rolled pavement systems.
  • Individual GEOPAVE units are sized for easy handling.
  • U-CLIPs are the strongest connection devices in the industry.
  • SNAP delineators mark parking spaces, drive lanes, center lines, handicapped space, and other delineation with a yellow or blue, diamond plate, non-skid surface.
  • Resists movement or breakage from vehicle turning stresses and torsional loads.
  • Meet green building goals and earn LEED credits.

MYTH BUSTERS: Learn the Truth about Porous Pavement Misconceptions

Well-designed porous pavements can out-perform traditional hard-surface pavements such as asphalt and concrete. There are some misconceptions about their cost and performance. Get the facts in the following white papers.

Clogging: Well-designed porous pavement systems resist clogging.

Cost: Overall costs to construct & maintain porous pavements are lower.

Snow Removal: Snow removal on a porous pavement system is easy!

Winter Durability: Properly designed porous pavement systems do not get damaged by the dynamics of freeze thaw cycles.

Winter Maintenance: Properly designed porous pavement systems are not difficult to maintain in winter weather conditions.
