PaveDrain | Porous Paving Block

Our solution to heavy duty traffic on pervious pavement

PaveDrain Overview

PaveDrain is a large paving block system with a built in storage area. Storm water is captured between each block and recharges the ground water or it stores in the arched area directly below the block. This design combined with durability is what sets this system apart from other porous paving products. If you are looking for a porous pavement suitable for heavy-duty traffic including trucks and construction equipment, look no further.

PaveDrain Features & Benefits

Modular: Depending on the installation, PaveDrain can be installed in mats allowing for quick installation and is able to be driven on almost immediately

Very Porous: Tested at 2000 gallons per minute per square foot or 4000 in/min/sf; this system is as porous as any

Cleaning: Cleaning is simple and the best method is an air compressor with a wand to blow debris from the gaps

Saves Valuable Land: Like all our porous pavements, land use is maximized by using a parking lot as a storm water pond. PaveDrain maximizes the benefit because it arched design stores more storm water than a typical stone infiltration bed.

Heavy Duty: PaveDrain is the only product we recommend in areas that will see truck traffic. This block is so durable it can even be used around construction equipment like skid steers. Although damage isn't typical, if it does occur a single block can be pulled and replaced in minutes.

PaveDrain Installation

PaveDrain can be installed in two methods. It can be laid one block at a time using the same method as brick pavers and is perfect for small areas or where there is limited access for heavy equipment. Where access isn't an issue PaveDrain can be laid in mats. The mats are interconnected blocks using a poly cable to allow for modular installation. The mats can be assembled offsite, shipped in and set with a crane or heavy construction equipment. Once they are set and the area is completed, the pavement can be open for traffic since no curing time is required.

PaveDrain Applications

PaveDrain is unique because it can be used where no other pervious pavements would dare:

  • Parking Lots
  • Loading Docks
  • Roads or Road Shoulders
  • Construction Entrances

Or use it anywhere a beautiful porous pavement is desired:

  • Sidewalks
  • Driveways
  • Patios
