New developments with Permeable Paving and SuDS


SuDS’, an essential introductory guide to all aspects of concrete block permeable paving for sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) – and much more. This comprehensive guide explores the latest innovations for new and retrofit paving, and potential with wider benefits for the urban environment. Concrete block permeable paving is uniquely placed as an essential, multifunctional SuDS technique, providing an inherent drainage system that requires no additional land take for water storage. It combines proven engineering design solutions with water management replicating nature near the surface. Permeable paving can be used for direct infiltration of attenuated, treated water to the ground or conveyance to other SuDS or sewers. It should also cost less than conventional paving and piped drainage to install and maintain, as the guide


T


he trade association Interpave has published a new edition of ‘Understanding Permeable Paving and


demonstrates. The new edition then explains how to use straightforward flow controls to maximise storage and other capabilities of permeable paving, offering further cost savings. And permeable paving is also very effective


at removing pollution from surface water runoff, notably vehicle pollutants, identified in recent research as particularly harmful to our rivers. In fact, permeable paving provides a gradual supply of clean, treated water as an asset, supporting landscape (including trees), biodiversity, water harvesting and safe open SuDS features downstream. But the wider benefits of concrete block permeable paving are also discussed in the guide. It offers ‘cool pavements’ helping to reduce the urban heat island effect, making our cities more comfortable in summer, with evaporation of rainwater from the surface and within the paving. This enhances the already high albedo – or heat reflectance – offered by concrete block or flag paving generally.


One particular innovation covered in the


latest edition of the guide is set to play a major role in the post-pandemic public realm. Retrofitting concrete block permeable paving as an overlay to existing streets offers a low- intervention technique to transform the public realm in response to the raft of recent active travel and open space initiatives.

Wallbarn, a leading manufacturer of pedestal solutions for domestic and commercial suspended paving and decking projects, has developed what it believes is the UK’s first non-combustible Class A1 metal pedestal designed specifically for high-rise balconies, terraces and flat roofs. MetalPad was developed in direct response to BS 8579: 2020 Guide to the Design of Balconies and Terraces, which has just been published and details how all building elements of balconies and terraces must be non-combustible. Previously, heavy-duty plastic pedestals systems had been deemed appropriate but the new standard makes clear this is no longer acceptable. The Wallbarn designed, developed and produced MetalPad Class A1 non-combustible fully adjustable pedestal system is the result of Wallbarn’s R&D investment in to developing a BS 8579 compliant system. It offers specifiers, contractors, building owners, insurers and occupants peace of mind that the pedestals supporting paving and decking on balconies and terraces will not fail in the event of fire. MetalPad is non-combustible to BS EN 13501-1, made from 2mm thick galvanised steel and designed for exterior applications.

UltraScape are delighted to present perma- bed, a new and unique permeable bedding mortar for paving installations. UltraScape perma-bed has been specifically designed with permeability in mind. Formulated to drain away any water migrating into the pavement


via cracks or damaged areas, perma-bed reduces water related pavement failures as rainwater will drain away naturally rather than sit on top of the stone, or worse, stay within the joint, freeze, expand and then break out. It is available in three beautiful colours – Cosmic Black, Storm Grey and Natural Cashmere.
