FilterPave is an environmentally friendly complete porous flooring system made from 100% post-consumer recycled glass that is bound together with a technologically advanced multi-component elastic resin from SOILTEC Germany in association with BASF – The Chemical Company.
Filterpave is extremely porous with a high level of sustainable void space that makes a big contribution to sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS), in essence it rapidly filters storm water runoff from roofs and other surfaces directly back to the water table, thus reducing the pressure on the local drainage system and the risk of flooding. It also captures oil residue and hydrocarbons increasing the quality of the water reaching the water table. (Tests have revealed that up to 1.5kg of oily substance can be bound per cubic metre of FilterPave (research by the University of Wisconsin)).
FilterPave is mixed like you would cement or concrete, poured into place and finished off. There is no need for multiple time consuming layers it is one layer directly onto a sub base. There are 6 different colors to choose from at present and it can be shaped at will.
The technologically advanced elastic resin helps combats the freeze/thaw effect and it is extremely tough and durable sustaining up to 2.7 tonnes of weight.
It can be used for both domestic and commercial projects. All public areas, housing developments, car parks, drive ways, access roads, pathways, patios, swimming pool surrounds, base of trees (tree pits). FilterPave comes in kit format for domestic use and small building projects and we have carefully selected expert UK installation teams who can deliver large commercial work across the UK and Ireland.
