Sub-base

StablePAVE HD should be placed on a suitably compacted sub-base (see notes), with weed suppressant overlap laid underneath each following sheet.

Placement

Panels should be placed on a flat bed of blinding or sand, graded to suit the installation.

Filling

Gravel fill at a rate of 70 - 75 kg per sq. metre, should be placed into the honeycomb structure. The honeycomb structure should be overfilled to a depth of 10 - 20 mm above the top surface of the panels. Filling should take place from the access point inwards and mechanical or pedestrian traffic should only occur over filled panels. Please refer to our comparison chart for gravel sizing.

Compacting

If required final consolidation can be aided by light compaction with a compaction plate. Notes:
Sub-base substructure is dependent on the use to which the final surface is to experience. This can vary from compacted earth for very light foot access paths to 150 mm of type one sub base material, where regular vehicle traffic is anticipated. In general the same sub-base as would be specified for modular concrete paving, is applicable to StablePAVE.

Maintenance

StablePAVE requires virtually no maintenance.
If the honeycombs cells become exposed simply top up with gravel.
