Erosion is a problem with any ground subject to pedestrian, animal or vehicular traffic. Surface reinforcement is required to prevent this, otherwise rutted, boggy, slippery and unsightly conditions occur which can be dangerous.
Traditionally, concrete, tarmac or block paving is used, however these are not environmentally friendly and contribute to the growing problem of urban hot spots.
This leads to rising temperatures, increasing flood risk zones and the necessity for implementing extra drainage systems.
The solution is to use a porous surface which will retain water for gradual release to drainage systems and absorb heat more, thereby reducing the problems now seen so damaging to our environment. This also greatly enhances the appearance of the area when filled with decorative stone or plant growing medium for grass or sedum.
Rite Pave ground reinforcement systems provide porous substrate support which holds earth, grass or gravel.
Manufactured from 100% recycled polyethylene, Rite Pave products are designed for long term use, easily joining together to form a structure that can handle thermal expansion within itself.
The design is perfect for supporting healthy grass growth within the cell which leads to a great looking finished installation. In addition, its anti slip top surface with raised pimples makes Rite Pave ideal for any kind of traffic, whether vehicle, animal or pedestrian.
With its high load bearing capacity of 350 t/m2, you can drive cars, HGVs, double decker buses and even tanks on Rite Pave. Its anti slip features also provide an ideal surface for driving.
Rite Pave fully supports grass growth and can be used with a variety of infill materials such as gravel, stones, soil, bark chippings, sand and rubber crumb - making for a great looking alternative to traditional driveway paving.
Environmentally friendly manufacturing in our UK based factory from 100% recycled polyethylene helping keep waste plastics from landfill.
Able to withstand heavy loads and thermal expansion, the durability of Rite Pave is unmatched, and has a 20 year working life expectancy.
Designed to easily interlock together, Rite Pave has excellent laying rates of up to 120m2 per man hour making for a quick installation. It is also easily cut and laid by D.I.Y enthusiasts and professionals alike with no specialist tools required to lay the product.
Only £10.10 per square metre making Rite Pave a very competitive alternative to traditional surfacing methods. Rite Pave is also easily transported, vehicles being able to contain 1300 square metres each. This leads to decreased fuel costs - both for you and the environment.
Unlike traditional paving, the permeable nature of the Rite Pave driveway grid system greatly assists drainage, making it compatible within a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS). Furthermore, Rite Pave prevents the compaction of earth or gravel infill, further assisting better drainage.
