Swimming pools are a great addition to homes. Not only do they provide fun and a healthy entertainment for the whole family, but they also add great value to the home.
What does your driveway, carpark walkways and tennis courts all have in common? Many of them do not adequately allow water to return to the ground, allowing the water to pool.
Stoneset is committed to providing better paving solutions for the safety of our environment.
Our environmental practices have led us to develop a wide range of Porus Paving applications for our clients. These applications maintain the reliability of your paved pathway, driveway or road by allowing water to absorb into the ground without compromising the practicality of your application.
Porous paving has been with us for decades and surprisingly, is a somewhat simple design. In recent years, the popularity of Porus Paving has started to expand. Why?
Intrigue around the impact we have on the environment, has raised lots of questions about how we can minimise, the impact our paving projects are having to our homes and environment, porous paving is often the answer we’ve been looking for.
What makes porous paving so special? Well…
BENEFIT #1: DRAINAGE
The immediate advantage for porous paving is that its absorptive nature allows water to drain straight through it. This allows water to follow its natural course, instead of pooling and puddling along the paving. Therefore helping to avoid flooding, and it keeps the local water table from being displaced.
BENEFIT #2: SAVED SPACE
For dealing with storm water, Porous paving is like a one-stop shop as it allows the water to drain naturally. The need to build gutters is negated, as are extended drainage systems. In turn this means less area has to be paved, leaving it in its natural state. This means nominal impact on the environment.
BENEFIT #3: FEWER MATERIALS
Our product actually takes fewer materials to make than its more traditional counterparts (both for asphalt and for concrete). Without the filler that would normally be in the paving, there’s less strain on the environment when it comes to harvesting and manufacturing. Not only that, but porous paving can be recycled and remade when it does finally reach the end of its life, making it quite an environmentally friendly product.
Using fewer materials to make than its more traditional counterparts, (both for asphalt and for concrete) is a key benefit to the environment. In normal paving, there is an additional filler used, as this is not required in our product, there’s less strain on the environment when it comes to collecting and manufacturing. Not only that, but porous paving can be recycled and remade when it does finally reach the end of its life, making it quite an environmentally friendly product.
