Description

A system of interlocking cellular paving units designed for the stabilization of trafficked grass or gravel surfaces.

Offers a cost-effective, robust and aesthetic solution for many applications where gravel retention or grass reinforcement is required and where source-control of surface water forms part of a Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) design).

Designed to be installed onto a stone sub-base construction incorporating Geogrids to minimize 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.

To aid rapid installation, four individual ABG Sudspave units form a pre-connected 1 m² section and the paving system clips and locks together to provide a continuous integral surface which is able to resist deformation and dislocation. The paving units can be filled with either 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.

Features and benefits:

  • High load bearing capacity.
  • Pre-connected for rapid installation.
  • UK manufactured.
  • Infilled with grass or gravel to suit project requirements.

Designed for infill with either grass or gravel. Its high performance characteristics make it suitable for a very wide range of applications.

Applications:

  • SuDS source control.
  • Fire access routes.
  • Grass car parks.
  • Gravel car parks.
  • Lay-bys.
  • Residential parking.
  • Tram subgrades.
  • Slope reinforcement.
  • Swale reinforcement.
  • Pedestrian/ cycle paths.
  • Airfields/ helipads.
  • Golf courses.
  • Camping sites.
  • Paddocks and stables.
  • Driveways.
  • Garden pathways.
  • Pond banks.
  • Infiltration trenches.
