StormPave from Pine Hall Brick looks almost exactly like the company’s classic English Edge paver that’s been installed in patios, sidewalks and plazas across the United States for decades.
StormPave’s a little different, though, in that it’s permeable. It has spacers that enable rainwater to go in between the pavers. And instead of being installed atop gravel and sand like conventional pavers, StormPave is installed in a best-practices system atop layers of differently sized aggregates. Rainwater goes in between the pavers to the aggregates below, where it is held until it is absorbed into the ground, where it is naturally filtered.
