Sustainable Drainage System (SUDS) – Source Control
The open cell structure provides high surface water infiltration and is suitable for source control within a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS). The unique design of the Bodpave® units resist lateral movement, improves traction and allows expansion & contraction whilst promoting optimum grass growth, root protection and surface stabilisation. Bodpave® 85 permeable paving grids should be installed onto a well prepared, free draining, firm and relatively level existing or newly constructed sub-base.
Bodpave® units simply connect together and are filled with either a sand:soil rootzone and seeded for a grass surface, or filled with an angular aggregate for a gravel surface as determined by the application. Construction profiles for each application will be determined by specific site conditions & loading criteria.
