FilterPave is an architectural porous pavement system that consists of recycled coloured glass aggregate and high strength natural binder. This pavement complements local landscape and buildings and is a significant architectural enhancement to any new or existing development. FilterPave scores LEED credits in several categories including less disturbance to the site, control and quality of stormwater, reduced heat island effects and recycling. This pavement material is highly porous and allows water to rapidly infiltrate through thereby reducing stormwater runoff. FilterPave can be designed to work with or replace various types of underground stormwater storage systems. Depending on the loading, typical thickness of FilterPave is usually 63 mm (2.5 inches) to 88 mm (3.5 inches) and is usually supported by a prepared open graded clean coarse gravel. The base course is typically up to 300 mm (12 inches) thick depending on the subgrade soil on site, but may be thicker to accommodate stormwater storage requirements. Several colours are available to suit project requirements including amber brown, sedona red, sapphire blue, jade green and topaz brown. Typical applications include parking areas, driveways, trails and walkways, golf paths, sidewalks, patios, boat ramp landings.
