Sudsgrid porous plastic paver applications include grass and gravel car parks, emergency access routes, maintenance vehicle access roads, cycle paths, retained gravel driveways, parking areas and pedestrian paths.
Grass reinforcement using ABG Sudsgrid 40 permeable paving grids
Sudsgrid offers a cost-effective, robust and aesthetic solution for many applications where gravel retention is required; including frequent-use applications and where source-control of surface water forms part of a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) design. For a reinforced grass surface, the interlocking grass pavers can be filled with a sandy-soil rootzone and seeded to produce a reinforced grass surface, suitable for occasional use by vehicles and pedestrian traffic.
Retained gravel, free draining ground reinforcement using ABG Sudsgrid 40 permeable paving grids
Gravel filled hotel / conference centre access roads
Sudsgrid permeable plastic cellular paving grids are designed to be installed onto a free-draining stone subbase construction, incorporating Geogrids to minimise material and construction costs. The paving units may also be considered for ‘reduced-dig’ applications where the depth of excavation has been limited due to archaeological or SSSI concerns, or in tree-root protection zones.
Interconnection between individual pavers is provided by means of spike and loop connectors around the edge of each paving unit. Thanks to the play at the connection between the spike and loop, the grid may be laid on gently curving surfaces.
Once installed, the porous plastic paving units can be filled with either an angular gravel for a hard wearing surface or with a formulated growing medium into which grass seed is sown to provide a vegetated finish, suitable for occasional trafficking.
