The fine print
Pavestone Company’s Eco-Priora™ is the sustainable solution for permeable pavements. The Eco-Priora™ paver is produced with a patented interlocking joint and a micro-chamfered top edge profile. This ingenuity, combined with the size of the paver, is singular to Pavestone’s permeable pavers and insures optimum pavement performance unequaled in the permeable paver industry. The unique Eco-Priora™ joint profile allows surface water to infiltrate into the pavement and its sub-layers. With average initial permeability flow rates of over 100 inches per hour, the Eco-Priora™ product, even with a clogging factor, will meet the majority of current storm water management plans (SWMP). The interlocking function, created by vertically aligned horizontal interlocking spacer bars, resists lateral and vertical displacement when the unit is exposed to load. The dynamics of pavement stress are better distributed providing a structurally superior permeable paving system. The micro-chamfered top edge profile produces a horizontal edge-to-edge dimension that is nominally 7mm including installation gapping. This small joint complies with current ADA requirements for walking surfaces with spaces no greater than 1/2 inch. This narrow jointed surface diminishes vibration for wheelchairs and shopping carts. Eco-Priora™ pavers can assist in meeting current EPA storm water regulations and LEED certification. The Eco-Priora™ product best achieves the balance of aesthetic segmental paving and the function of permeable pavement.
