Porous Pave™ strives in excellence in providing a surfacing solution that looks great in any landscape. With our patented manufacturing process, we are successfully re-directing old tires destine for landfills, and creating beautiful, functional, sustainable surface materials that are Eco-friendly, and worry free.
Porous Pave surfacing materials allows larger volumes of water to pass through - approximately 6,300 gallons per hour, per square foot - which diminishes water runoff, by allowing water to soak through into the ground.
Porous Pave resists crumbling and cracking, reducing trip and fall accidents. Resistant to oil, chlorine, ozone, UV rays, muriatic acid, salt water and other hostile materials.
The strongest, most durable blend with rubber chips, stone aggregate and hard binder for a touch, wear resistant surface.
Porous Pave innovative product is made from recycled tires. Under tightly monitored shredding process, removes 99% of the steel fragments and produces a 1/4" to 3/8" nominal size rubber chip.
Every 1,000 square foot of Porous Pave saves approximately 300 tires from a landfill.
Porous Pave is ADA compliant, which lessens the chance of slip and fall accidents.
