There are a number of reasons to choose permeable pavers for hardscaped areas. Do you know what they are? Find out the benefits of Premier Hydropavers® from the experts.
Planning a new project? Premier Hydropavers® from Premier Pavers & Stone will make your customers and employees happy by producing a well-drained surface that’s easy to install. If you’re a DIY fanatic who wants to turn hardscaped areas into puddle free and attractive spaces, Premier Hydropavers® are also the perfect choice.
A superior paving product, Premier Hydropavers® carry a multitude of advantages, from the visual to the functional, all the way to the environmental and public safety. Never before has a paver been able to offer benefits across so many levels. This water permeable paver is truly a step forward in construction and in our ability to build without harming the environment.
Premier Hydropavers® are permeable pavers that are manufactured entirely from recycled ceramic waste, requiring zero raw material extraction.
SUPER HIGH PERMEABILITY
Premier Hydropavers® are 100 percent permeable across their surface and function as a sponge. The first 6mm of rainfall is absorbed into the paver then returned to the atmosphere via evapotranspiration. Additional rainfall permeates through the paver at a rate of up to 60mm/h.
The entire surface of Premier Hydropavers® act as a drain, thereby preserving water and preventing erosion. Water quickly and naturally flows through the paver, returning to the soil to improve plant growth and recharge the subgrade/soil.
EASY PLANNING APPROVAL
Councils now stipulate that water saving solutions must be implemented in all paved areas. As the demand for permeable paved areas increases, using Premier Hydropavers® makes it easier to satisfy and meet council permeability quotas.
Using Premier Hydropavers® minimises the need for complex stormwater drainage systems, resulting in a reduced construction budget. In addition, ease of obtaining council planning approval helps minimise interest and holding costs. Long term savings are also made due to low maintenance requirements.
Premier Hydropavers® have a more than 50MPa compressive strength and a breaking load strength of 10kN to 20kN.
SAFETY AND COMFORT
Rainwater seeps into Premier Hydropavers® rather than ponding, greatly reducing the risk of slipping. Premier Hydropavers® have a nonslip surface that has a British Pendulum Number of a minimum of 65. The nonslip surface is particularly relevant around pool/wet areas. The pavers also reduce sun glare and night reflection.
Premier Hydropavers® require the same maintenance regime as any other paved area. They can be easily high-pressure cleaned and there is no joint clogging. The patented structure allows the paver to maintain its permeability with limited maintenance.
URBAN HEAT ISLAND
Evaporation of water from the pavers can regulate surface temperatures and humidity, mitigating the urban heat island effect.
The patented permeable structure of Premier Hydropavers® can absorb vehicle noise and city hubbub, contributing to a more tranquil urban environment.
Premier Hydropavers® are available in a variety of attractive colours and sizes. Being a ceramic product that has been fired at 1200°C and will maintain their colour indefinitely. Premier Hydropavers® come with a lifetime warranty.
