The Best permeable pavement. Technically speaking.

With funding by the National Research Council of Canada, PurePave permeable pavement is a technological breakthrough, scientifically proven by Ottawa U.

PurePave behaves like Steel

It's the Most Flexible Pavement on Earth!

The behaviour of Pure Pave is definitely unique, as mentioned by Professors and Structural Laboratory Technical Officers at the University of Ottawa. The amazingly high flexibility means Pure Pave behaves like steel at different loading levels. What exactly does that mean for you? Pure Pave is resistant to cracking, from normal wear and tear.

MADE FOR CANADIAN WINTERS

Resistant to Freeze-Thaw Cycles! Unlike other surfaces.

The freeze-thaw test process exposed PurePave permeable pavement to a temp. of -40±1 ℃ for 1 hour, then transferred to a room at 30±1 ℃ for another hour. After exposure to forty freeze-thaw cycles, the flexural strength of PurePave virtually remained unchanged!

In similar tests, the flexural strength of plain concrete decreased to 54.1% of its original strength.

Several samples of asphalt were exposed to -25±1 ℃ then 25±1 ℃ for several cycles.  The fluctuation of temps. impacts the efficiency of asphalt, damaging the pavement by building up cracks and potholes within the structure.   The flexural strength of asphalt declined quickly within initial rounds, before it enhances gradually after the 8th cycle.

PurePave Permeable Layer
STORMWATER MANAGEMENT SOLUTION

4,466 Gallons / Hr / Sq. Ft.

Pure Pave surfaces have 27% void space for walkways and 22% void space for driveways.  That means an incredible amount of water flows thru your PurePave permeable surface; For your walkway, driveway, pool surround or patio too. Watch videos of PurePave in rainstorms.

Proper permeable pavements must meets both aquatic and structural requirements otherwise they are not considered by experts. PurePave not only meets, but exceeds both requirements and is considered the benchmark! Ahem…we enjoy saying that.

SUPPORTS A 40,000 LB LOADER!

6X and 1.7X stronger than asphalt and concrete.

Yes, we get questioned on how a 1.5″ layer of PurePave is thick enough for driveways (3″ for commercial applications) and can handle 11,000 PSI (pounds per sq. inch) of pressure. So to demonstrate it’s unbelievable strength, we decided to drive on PurePave with a 35,000 Lb JCB 437  loader!  Watch the videos

PurePave behaves more like steel than a traditional pavement, so commercial snow plows and heavy vehicles alike are finally welcome. The future of sustainable surfacing is here, that’s why contractors across Canada, the City of Toronto, City of Ottawa, NRC, NCC, Conservation Authorities, Landscape Architects and savvy developers are starting to integrate PurePave into their projects. Are you ready for Earth Conscious Surfacing?
