Any grassed area will be subject to erosion in the presence of vehicle, pedestrian or animal traffic. This leads to rutted, boggy, slippery and unsightly conditions which can be dangerous.
Traditionally this is remedied with concrete, tarmac or block paving. The problem with this however is it does not look as good as grass generally and is much less eco-friendly, contributing to the growing problem of urban hot spots carrying the costs of flood risk, extra drainage systems and rising temperatures.
The solution is a porous grass reinforcement grid system which offers the best of both worlds - the strength and durability of paving with the aesthetic and eco-friendliness of grass. By retaining water for gradual release to drainage systems and absorbing heat more, it will reduce the problems now seen so damaging to our environment.
This solution also offers the possibility of grass car parking.
Rite Pave ground reinforcement systems provide porous substrate support which fully supports grass growth, making for a great looking and much more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional paving.
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. Rite Pave also greatly assists drainage of rain water making it compatible within a sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS), reducing flood risk markedly.
In addition, its high load bearing capacity and 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.
