Hanson Formpave Aquaslab

Permeable paving for use in pedestrian areas
'Formpave have designed a range of Aquaflow paving blocks to be used in conjunction with either tanked or infiltration systems.

The range consists of six blocks manufactured from concrete with a tensile splitting strength in accordance with BS EN 1338:2003.

Included within the range is the Aquaslab which has been designed for use on non-trafficked pedestrian areas.

The slabs provide drainage through vertical channels and will allow water through the surface at a rate of approximately 9000mm per hour (9000 litres per m2 per hour). The Inbitex geotextile beneath the laying course will allow approximately 4500 litres per m2 per hour through and this figure should be used for design purposes.

NB the Aquaslab range includes Cornish 'EcoGranite' of whose materials 70% are recycled'

Size: 300 x 450 x 60mm
Laying pattern: Staggered stretcher bond
Colours: Natural, Burnt Red, Red brindle, Golden brindle and Charcoal
