Water is our most valuable resource. It’s fundamental to our health, our way of life, our economy and our environment.
In urban areas, pavements are a major generator of stormwater runoff, accounting for up to 25% of impervious surfaces.
A sustainable solution is the use of permeable paving.
More than just a paver, permeable pavements are the visible starting point to a simple, environmentally effective, water saving system beneath the surface. When a permeable pavement system is installed, the series of drainage holes in the pavement surface allow water to filtrate through the surface layers, minimising stormwater run off, downstream flooding and pollution problems, with the added benefit of reducing the need for costly underground retention systems.
With record levels of drought across Australia, increasingly less consistent rainfall, and ongoing water restrictions throughout most parts of the country, the ability to capture and reuse as much water as possible is crucial to a sustainable future.
Adbri Masonry’s range of permeable pavers provides the structural performance of conventional interlocking segmental pavers with eco-friendly functionality and unique aesthetic qualities. Ecotrihex® is a Type A interlocking paver, meaning it can be constructed in a similar manner to other segmental pavements (with the exception of extra allowance for drainage). Similar to this Ecopave® is a smaller format Type C segmental concrete paver available in 50mm and 80mm thickness.
