Permeable pavers are recognized as a Best Management Practice                                           SPEC
for stormwater management. They facilitate rapid surface
penetration of stormwater, reducing or eliminating run-off. The                                           Par
SPEC-PAVE™ system creates a paved surface with 10% open                                                   Dri

runoff storage capacity can be designed to meet local storm event                                         Ove
requirements by adjusting the base reservoir’s volume. The
SPEC-PAVE™ permeable pavement system serves as a filter that                                               Rev

Optimize Land Use
Using the SPEC-PAVE™ paving system reduces or eliminates the need for detention ponds, freeing space
for efficient use and minimizing the required footprint of the development.                              SPEC

Construction efficiency
SPEC-PAVE™ units are designed for mechanical installation. Interlocking pavers
may be installed during cold weather and are ready for traffic immediately after
completing installation. (Herringbone laying pattern shown)                                                SP
