TuffTrack Grassroad Pavers

Source

TuffTrack Grassroad Pavers are manufactured in rigid 24-inch square panels for maximum strength. With a compressive strength of 98,770 psf, Tufftrack pavers stabilize the soil to support heavy vehicles like fire trucks while allowing turf to grow. Manufactured from 100 percent recycled HDPE, these turf pavers are a sustainable solution for areas of high traffic that might otherwise be covered with traditional asphalt or concrete.

These pavers provide permeable surfaces that eliminate or reduce stormwater runoff; stormwater filters naturally through the subsurface, reducing pollutants; urban Heat Island (UHI) effect is mitigated as grass does not absorb as much heat energy as traditional hardscapes; and pavers are estimated to be less expensive to maintain that traditional hardscaping.

Recommended applications include fire lanes, emergency vehicle access roads, truck maintenance and equipment yards, construction entrance soil stabilization, truck & cart wash-down areas, RV & boat access and parking, residential driveways, parking lots, overflow parking lots, roadways shoulders.
