Hanpave Porous Paving Grid

recycled plastic sustainable drainage system

Hanpave porous paving is a high performance, durable and low maintenance plastic grid used as a surface solution for grass and gravel in a SUDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) compliant permeable paving system.  Made from 100% UK plastic waste which might otherwise go to landfill. Hanpave reduces the carbon footprint of a project. It's fully recyclable at the end of its product life.

Hanpave is the solution for car parks, pedestrian and cycle paths, picnic areas, golf courses, parks, fire lanes, event areas, horse paddocks

Hanpave porous paving blocks are connected by an interlocking structure and installed on a porous base course. Their role is to transfer loads from the surface to the engineered course base below.

Ground Protect has been uniquely designed and uses strong inter-grid unions coupled with a geometric design which ensures that it can withstand weights up to 236 tonnes.  It's patent-pending interference connection avoids the use of clips, which can break on installation. Individual grids can be easily removed if underneath access is required and can be replaced if damaged or vandalised, without the need to re-lay an entire car park.
