Formpave, a leading manufacturer of specialist concrete paving products has expanded its range of block paving with the launch of its new 50mm multi-use paver, Avenida CombinedTM. Available as a standard paver it can also be used as a permeable (SUDS) solution.
Each pack of Avenida contains a combination of three module sizes, 20x150x50mm, 150x150x50mm and 100x150x50mm, allowing customers to create a variety of random laying patterns. Manufactured in an olden style finish the paver
comes in Traditional, Pennant and Vendage, with specialist colours also available to order. The Avenida block
has a larger spacer nib that allows the use of AquaflowTM surface dressing as a permeable infill and is therefore fully compliant with the recently enforced Future Water driveway legislation.
Ideal for areas of light trafficking including driveways, paths and patio areas it is perfect for the residential market. With the Future Water legislation stating that planning permission will be required for the laying of impermeable surfacing, either new or replacement, where any run off will drain away onto the highway, homeowners and developers are increasingly turning to permeable
, as a cost-effective and efficient alternative; thus avoiding the stresses and costs of the planning permission process.
Steve Spikes, development director for Hanson Formpave said: “The development and manufacture of Avenida Combined has enabled us to react and respond to demand from our existing client and customer base. It is a volume-manufactured paver, produced with the olden appearance in the mould; and with a nationwide distribution through our approved builders’ merchant stockists and our direct sales team, we can be confident of efficient lead-times and delivery, to meet the demand that we are experiencing.
“With its flexibility as a standard and permeable block paver Avenida is the perfect multi-purpose paving solution for domestic driveways, paths and patios.”
