The fine print
Pavestone’s Eco-Venetian Stone™ is the sustainable solution for modular multi-shape permeable pavements. Its modular square and rectangular pavers with their cleft surface set them apart from other permeable pavement treatments. This texture resembles stone facing and invokes a more natural convention. The larger scale of Eco-Venetian Stone™ lends itself to stately residential settings and more expansive commercial applications. Its modular pattern equalizes the scale of any project and is fitting to most any architectural elements.
The product is produced with a patented 1/4 inch interlocking joint and a micro-chamfered top edge profile. This ingenuity, combined with the size of the paver, is unique to Pavestone’s permeable pavers and insures optimum pavement performance unequaled in the permeable paver industry. The unique Eco-Venetian Stone™ joint profile allows surface water to infiltrate between the pavers and its sub-layers of base material. With average initial permeability flow rates of over 150 inches per hour and a clogging factor of up to 90% these permeable pavers will still meet the majority of storm water management plans (SWMP). Their structural interlocking capability is achieved by the paver having interlocking joints with at least two vertically aligned horizontal interlocking spacer bars on each of its sides. These spacer bars interlock throughout the depth of the block and nest adjacently with neighboring pavers. This optimum interlocking function resists lateral and vertical displacement when the paver is exposed to vehicles.
The dynamics of pavement stress from traffic are better distributed providing a structurally superior permeable paving system. The micro-chamfered top edge profile of Eco-Venetian Stone™ pavers produce a horizontal edge-to-edge dimension that is nominally 7mm. This small joint complies dimensionally with current ADA requirements for walking surfaces with spaces no greater than ½ inch. This narrow jointed surface diminishes vibration for wheelchairs and shopping carts when compared to all other permeable paving products. Eco-Venetian Stone™ can assist in meeting current EPA storm water regulations and LEED certifications. The Eco-Venetian Stone™ product best achieves the balance of aesthetic segmental paving and the function of permeable pavement.
