WHAT IS IT?
StablePAVE HD is a purpose designed, fully interlocking honeycomb structure for the stabilisation, containment and reinforcement of natural gravel surfaces. It is the most robust of the StablePAVE product group and can be used in all light vehicular and pedestrian applications, including constant access commercial or municipal car parking. StablePAVE HD is produced in panels of 1200 x 800 mm x 38mm deep (0.96 sq. metres per panel), with a double strength weed suppressant membrane base. The secure interlocking facility provides immense stability and enhanced lateral loading resistance. This provides a much more robust and durable gravel surface and increases its suitability for heavier, regular traffic.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
StablePAVE HD is manufactured in Europe from 100% re-cycled raw materials. The product can be fully re-cycled in itself, which leads to an ultra-low carbon footprint in production, use and disposal. When used with traditional local, natural aggregates, the StablePAVE HD system offers a significant contribution to beneficial BREEAM ratings in the landscaping and external works around your building. The contribution can be further enhanced by the utilisation of re-cycled decorative aggregates.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
StablePAVE HD provides a free draining permeable paving layer. The reinforcing structure prevents rutting, restricts gravel migration and can withstand a compressive loading from over 135 tonnes/sq. mtr (unfilled). The design criteria is to accommodate heavier vehicles up to and including emergency and utility access. Addition lateral load resistance from the interlocking design makes StablePAVE HD particularly suitable for heavy small wheeled maintenance or utility plant, horse boxes and other high point loading wheeled vehicles.
SUDS (Sustainable Drainage)
Even with a traditional compacted sub base the system creates a free draining, permeable paving layer which virtually eliminates surface water run-off. This substantially reduces demand on surface water drainage capacity. StablePAVE HD is eminently suitable for use in conjunction with fully permeable sub base construction and over water harvesting installations.
The system is fast and easy to install, which is a major cost consideration, when compared to the alternatives. Installation rates of up to 250 sq. metres per day with a single small crew are achievable, making StablePAVE HD a very economical paving selection.
