Grasscrete Data Sheet


Grasscrete® is an environmentally friendly solution for emergency vehicle access, water management and traffic applications that offers the ability to provide year-round access for a variety of applications requiring structural paving surfaces without compromising the aesthetics of the exterior landscaping.

Grasscrete provides the availability of using single-use formers to create a monolithic reinforced ready mixed concrete pour that forms a pervious pavement structure with voids that are opened after the concrete hardens that can be utilized as an exposed application with crushed stone or concrete or utilized as a concealed system with vegetation such as grass or native ground cover.

The selection of Grasscrete is one of the easiest ways to achieve LEED® points due to the reduction in heat island effect, management of storm water runoff, recycled content used in the application process as well as the concrete and sub-base, the long lifespan and the low maintenance required.

 

Grass reinforcement

Occasionally confused with pre-cast blocks, Grasscrete is in fact a cast on site cellular reinforced concrete system with voids created by styrene void formers. This type of construction offers significant structural advantages over precast concrete and plastic systems:

  • Load bearing up to 40 tonnes gross vehicle weight
  • Resists differential settlement
  • Reduces sub-base depths
  • Eliminates kerb edges
  • No reliance on grass for stability
  • Optimum drainage capability
  • Typical traffic related specifications for Grasscrete can include:
  • Vehicle parking for daily or overspill use
  • Emergency access
  • Maintenance access
  • Highway verges and pull-ins

In addition to its ability to withstand traffic loads, Grasscrete is extensively used for projects in the water environment. Tested to flow rates in excess of 8 metres per second, this self-venting paving system is ideal for armouring the following:-

  • Reservoirs
  • Spillways
  • Storm/drainage channels
  • River/lake defences/swales
