Hydropavers® offer unsurpassed paving benefits. But how did this incredible technology come to be? Premier Pavers & Stone have observed the history of this material, applying old ideas for the modern age.
The basic idea for Premier Hydropavers® comes from the thousand-year-old tradition of making walkways in the sand. For centuries, walkways have been made by simply setting stones in the sand while leaving a gap between stones. This simplistic design allowed water and dirt to flow between the gaps, leaving very little to be maintained.
This principle has been magnified to great extents to suit the needs of the 21st century through porous paving.
Premier Hydropavers® is comprised of a layered design that allows water to pass through the whole surface effortlessly. The general set up of permeable paving includes the following layers:
Layer 1 | The paving material of your choice (colour and texture)
Layer 2 | A gravel bed that also adds to the strength of the pavers
Layer 3 | This layer comprises of a filter fabric or other material that ensures no pollutants get passed on to the bottom layer
Layer 4 | The lowest layer is usually sand or soil that directs the water into the ground
Permeable paving offers benefits beyond what meets the eye and beyond the general convenience that our product offers. The large-scale benefits for city councils and homeowners in USA is a standing testament to the effectiveness of permeable paving.
Premier Hydropavers® offers an extensive range of benefits. They help to manage and curb stormwater by allowing the water to pass through the surface, which greatly reduces expenses and risks associated with stagnating water.
The various layers of permeable paving allow the water to be purified to a great extent before being replenished into the groundwater. Premier Hydropavers® also feature an anti-slip surface, enabling many more applications in outdoor areas.
If you’re looking for a smart alternative to paving that is in tune with the requirements of the 21st century, Premier Hydropavers® is the ideal choice.
