Spec-Pave creates a permeable surface that facilitates effective stormwater management.

The Spec-Pave system creates a permeable surface for rapid infiltration and storage of storm water, facilitating effective stormwater management. Spec-Pave™ is both ADA compliant and has 10% open surface area for rapid infiltration of storm water. Its strength and durability is designed to fit a wide range of applications.
Our 100MM thick version, Spec-Pave 100, complies with ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) requirements for an Aspect Ratio for vehicular traffic loadings. Spec-Pave pavers are perfect for: parking lots, driveways, overflow parking areas, revetments, boat ramps, bike paths, sidewalks and pedestrian areas, and light traffic roadways.
