INSTALLING PERMEABLE PAVERS
> Excavate to the design levels.


> Compact the subgrade to the required density. Place and compact the base in layers not exceeding 6” (150mm) to a smooth uniform surface to the grade and cross section
  required. The minimum surface tolerance of the compacted base should be +/- 3/8” over a 10 ft straightedge. The base should extend beyond the perimeter of the grids a mini-
  mum of 12 in. when there is no building or curb to restrain them. The extended perimeter increases the stability of the stone and allows for installation of edge restraints.


> The gradation of the bedding sand should conform to ASTM: C 33 (6) or CSA A23.1 (7). Limestone screenings, stone dust, or masonry sand should not be used. The thickness of
  the bedding sand should be 1 to 1 ½ inches. Use a screed board over the screed rails or bars to establish a consistent sand thickness. The sand should have a consistent moisture
  content but not be saturated. Do not disturb the screed sand prior to placing the grids.


> Do not allow any vehicular traffic on the stone installation until the grid openings have been filled. TerraStone and TurfStone are typically placed on the screeded bedding sand in a
  running bond pattern with the minimum joint spacing of 1/16” to 3/16”. If the grids touch, they may crack, chip, or spall under repeated traffic. The smooth side is the bottom of
  each unit. After the grids are placed, go over them with a plate compactor. It should have a minimum centrifugal compaction force of 5,000 lbs. A rubber or neoprene mat should
  be attached to the plate of the compactor to protect grids from cracking and chipping.


> The units should be cut to fill any spaces along the edges prior to compaction. All installed units should be compacted into the bedding sand at the end of each day. If bedding
  sand is left non compacted, it should be covered with plastic to protect it from rain (rainfall settles non compacted sand, preventing the grids from pressing into the sand when
  compacted.) Otherwise, bedding sand saturated with rainfall prior to compaction will need to dry, be raked and re-screeded, or be replaced. If left uncorrected, the grids will settle
  unevenly and may move under traffic.


> After the grids are installed and compacted, a mix of topsoil and grass seed can be spread across the grids and swept into openings. Fertilizer may be mixed with the topsoil
  as well. Fertilizer quantities should be adjusted to account for the concrete surface. Compact the TerraStone/TurfStone again until the final level of the topsoil is about ½” to ¾”
  below the top surface. This will lend protection from tires as the grass grows. Straw can be applied to protect the grass while it is growing. While labor-intensive, sod plugs can
  be inserted into the openings as an alternative to topsoil and seeding. If using sod, it should be applied after the second or final compaction of the grids, but with a reduced
  amount of topsoil in the openings so space is available for the sod plugs.


**Note: A drought tolerant grass should be used when installing TerraStone and TurfStone applications.

    Make It Right with
    Rinox
    Rinox strives to make your paver sales and installation easy. We produce our
    pavers and wall blocks to exacting standards beyond industry requirements.
    Each and every paver that leaves the Rinox plant is backed by a lifetime war-
    ranty for structural integrity. Not to mention, our quality control department
    demands the highest quality possible. Our pavers meet a minimum strength
    of 8500 psi (pounds per square inch). That means that we produce a product
    that’s stronger than traditional concrete slabs, stamped concrete and asphalt.
    Now that’s Making It Right!
