Read on to learn more about Flexi-Pave and how it can help you create the perfect driveway.
What Is Flexi-Pave?
Flexi-Pave is an innovative porous pavement material made of natural stone aggregates and recycled tire rubber bonded by a urethane-based binder. This unique combination of materials creates an incredibly durable and flexible pavement ideal for constructing driveways, pathways, sidewalks, parking lots, and more.
The defining feature of Flexi-Pave is that it is 23% porous, which means the material is permeable and allows water to pass through and drain away quickly. One square foot of Flexi-Pave can absorb up to 3,000 gallons of water per hour, making it the perfect choice for areas prone to flooding or large amounts of rain.
One of the most notable uses of Flexi-Pave is when it was the material of choice for the 4,000-square-foot walkway in Yellowstone National Park. The park is home to Old Faithful, the world’s most famous geyser, and other geysers and hot springs. Flexi-Pave was the best material for this project because it can absorb and drain away all the extra water without causing environmental damage.
Why Should You Use Flexi-Pave on Your Driveway?
Flexi-Pave is an excellent choice for any driveway, path, parking lot, or other types of pavement project. Here are some of the main benefits of using Flexi-Pave for your driveway:
With its 23% porosity, Flexi-Pave provides excellent water absorption and drainage, making it the perfect choice for areas prone to flooding and heavy rain. The material also helps reduce the risk of water pooling and flooding, which helps protect your house or car from water damage. It’s also an excellent pavement for groundwater recharge and can help reduce the amount of runoff water.
Flexi-Pave is one of the different permeable paving materials used in beach parking lots in Massachusetts. In a study of the bioretention properties of these materials, Flexi-Pave had an infiltration rate of 1,492 in/hr, exceeding specifications and expectations. This makes it the perfect choice for areas near large bodies of water.
Flexi-Pave is especially slip-resistant, making it an incredible choice for surrounding pools, ponds, and lakes. The rubber particles in Flexi-Pave help give it a textured surface that reduces the risk of slipping and increases traction for cars, bikes, pedestrians, wheelchairs, and more.
Flexi-Pave provides added traction even when wet. That’s why it’s also popular in playgrounds, where children can run around without fear of slipping.
Freeze and Thaw Resistant
Flexi-Pave is also resistant to freeze and thaw cycles, even in extreme weather conditions. The rubber particles within the material can expand and contract as temperatures rise and fall, ensuring that your pavement surface remains intact throughout the year. This saves you from the expense of having to repair cracks and large potholes caused by constant freezing and thawing.
Flexible and Durable
Flexi-Pave is incredibly durable and flexible because of the combination of stone aggregates and rubber particles. It can shift and move as needed while retaining its strength and durability. This makes it perfect for areas with high vehicular or foot traffic or those exposed to the elements.
Flexi-Pave is also non-toxic and eco-friendly and can be installed near open water sources without fear of polluting them. It won’t harm the environment or disrupt natural ecosystems. It also can filter pollutants, helping to keep the air and water clean.
Unless exposed to an accelerant, Flexi-Pave is non-flammable, making it a safe choice for any home or business. It won’t catch fire and is incredibly resistant to sparks, minimizing the risk of accidental fires. Flexi-Pave can also be installed near grills and fire pits without fear of combustion.
With all its benefits, a Flexi-Pave driveway is a smart choice for any home or business. Flexi-Pave is the way to go if you’re looking for an attractive, safe, and sustainable way to pave your driveway and protect your property.
