The benefits of Premier Hydropavers® extend from the visual, to the functional all the way to the environmental and to public safety. Never before has a paver been able to offer benefits on all of these levels. Our water permeable pavers truly are a step forward in construction and in our ability to build without harming the environment.Our Premier Hydropavers® are the perfect choice for architects, builders and DIY fanatics who want to turn their hardscaped areas into environmentally-friendly, non-slip, puddle free and attractive spaces that carries a multitude of advantages.
The benefits of Premier Hydropavers® include:
The ability for water to enter into the pavers and then flow naturally means that water is absorb evenly and dispersed of evenly. This means that problems arising from heavy water flow into drainage systems is avoided and damage as a result of rapid-run off is also avoided. The longevity of the water permeable paving system is also increased as a result of the more even dispersal of groundwater. Due to the even dispersal the water permeable pavers can settle more evenly and allow the pavers to find a consistent resting place.
Innovation in Drainage
Premier Hydropavers® create an enormous drainage point. Every square inch of the paved area becomes a place for water to be absorbed and returned into the ground. This is a far more efficient way of draining water than creating sloped areas in paving that lead to single drainage points, which can quickly become blocked and flooded. The water permeable pavement also works to filter the water, meaning the water collected can become a useful source of water for garden beds in patios and gardens. In a country where water is scarce we all need to make the most of every drop that falls from the sky.
Ease Some of The Planning Headaches
Every domestic or commercial builder has had to deal with the seemingly endless red tape that the council puts up. With our permeable pavers you will find it much easier to achieve the percentage of permeable areas that council may require you to meet.
Reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect
Anyone who has been around a hardscaped area on a hot day knows the effect radiated heat can have. Hardscaped areas can trap and radiate heat, especially in built-up areas. The nature of our permeable pavers means that after rain water evaporates slowly from them and their surface temperature reduces, meaning you can create a far more comfortable area for the public to enjoy.
Three Advantages in One Paver
Our pavers are anti-slip, they can be used in all paving situations and they look fantastic. You don’t have to ruin your aesthetic with ugly non-slip mats and the design of the pavers mean that the colour is fired into the paver.
Safety and Comfort
The ability to create permeable areas for vehicle traffic means you can work to reduce traffic accidents. The main advantage comes in the fact that puddling and pooling of water is reduced, meaning that light reflection is also reduced and drivers can enjoy better visibility.
Reduction in Urban Pollution
Excess air moisture in urban areas can contribute to pollution. This phenomenon is known as ‘water haze,’ and the permeable nature of our pavers means that they can work to disperse this haze and lessen the effect of urban pollution on the local environment and the wider environment.
Excess noise is a problem to residents in urban areas. Our pavers not only absorb water, they also absorb noise from vehicles and other sources of noise. By using our pavers for your hardscaping needs you can create a more tranquil space for the public.
In a time where our impact on the environment is having real and devastating effects, we all need to work to slow these effects and our pavers can:
- Increase groundwater supply, stop soil erosion and prevent waste from entering our waterways by preventing runoff
- Purify rainwater, allowing it to be recycled and used for a variety of purposes.
12 REASONS TO CHOOSE PREMIER HYDROPAVERS®
As the demand for permeable paved areas increases Premier Hydropavers® make it easier to satisfy and meet local council permeability quotas. Councils also stipulate that water saving solutions must be implemented in all paved areas?
Premier Hydropavers® are 100% permeable across their surface and function as a sponge. The initial 6 mm of rain is absorbed within the paver and returned to the atmosphere via evapotranspiration. Additional rainfall permeates through the Premier Hydropavers® at a rate of up to 60 mm/h.
Rainwater seeps into Premier Hydropavers® rather than ponding, greatly reducing the risk of slipping. Premier Hydropavers® have a nonslip surface that has a British Pendulum Number of a minimum of 65. Premier Hydropavers® nonslip surface is particularly relevant around pool areas. It also reduces sun glare and night reflection..
Premier Hydropavers® are available in a variety of attractive colours and sizes. Being a ceramic product that has been fired at 1200°C Premier Hydropavers® will maintain their colour indefinitely and come with a lifetime warranty.
Premier Hydropavers® require the same maintenance regime as any other paved area. They can be easily high pressured cleaned and there is no joint clogging. The patented structure allows the paver to maintain their permeability.
Premier Hydropavers function as a sponge which allows water to penetrate and hold water to redistribute if the rainfall is less than 5mm. The complete paving will become dranage, preserving water and preventing erosion when rain arrives quickly.
