Permeable Articulating Blocks
PaveDrain® is a permeable articulating concrete block/mat that creates a performance pavement. PaveDrain features a patented arched reservoir to maximize onsite stormwater capacity during extreme storm events.
How PaveDrain® Works
The patented design permeable block design allows water to infiltrate into arched reservoirs before absorption into the ground. The PaveDrain System gives water a vertical infiltration path that recharges local groundwater and reduces first flush pollutants.
