Maximize Infiltration, Reduce Stormwater Runoff
Stormwater runoff is a resource to be managed locally. Neoloy® Tough-Cells permeable pavement solutions reduce the impact on built areas by absorbing water on-site
The goal of Neoloy Tough-Cells permeable pavement solutions is to reduce the impact of built areas by absorbing water on-site via harvesting and infiltration to underground water sources. Neoloy Tough-Cells used in the structural layers of concrete paving block systems can reduce stormwater by enabling infiltration in structural layers, reducing runoff and flooding and filtering pollutants.
Types of Permeable Pavements and Paving Block Solutions:
- Permeable pavements – Neoloy Tough-Cells can use larger-size, poorly graded stone instead of high-quality/high-cost infill to meet sustainable drainage guidelines in urban areas.
- Partially-permeable low impact pavements – Neoloy reinforcement reduces the permeable pavement layer thickness, while utilizing locally available soil for fill.
- Non-permeable load bearing pavements – Neoloy heavy-duty structural reinforcement for inter-modal ports -modal ports and container yards.
Benefits Neoloy Tough-Cells for Permeable Pavements
- Neoloy Tough-Cells can reduce or replace stabilized cement base layer
- Increased load bearing for heavy-duty load support
- Semi-rigid mattress reduces differential settlement and prevents pavement failure
- Excellent drainage and durability in saturated conditions
- Increase service life of all types of permeable pavements
- Fast installation
- Use of local sand for structural infill
- Long term durable life-span
- Reduce operational and maintenance costs
- Lower total cost of ownership
- Green solution utilizes local infill material
- Enables use of paving block solutions
Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP)
PICP is comprised of a layer of concrete pavers separated by joints filled with small stones. Water enters joints between solid concrete pavers and flows through an “open-graded” base, i.e. crushed stone layers with no small or fine particles. The void spaces among the crushed stones store water and infiltrate it back into the soil subgrade. The stones in the joints provide 100% surface permeability and the base filters stormwater and reduce pollutants. Read More on the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute.
