Turfstone is machine-manufactured under controlled factory conditions using a cement-rich concrete molded with extreme pressure and vibration. Turfstone units offer exceptional strength and durability to withstand New England’s harsh winter climate. This lattice-style paver has apertures that comprise 40% of the surface area. The flat, grid-like units form a continuous pattern, and when properly installed,
provide a pavement surface that is “snow-plow safe.”
? When the apertures are planted with grass, Turfstone “greenspace” pavement is suitable for residential use, vegetated swales, commercial, educational and municipal facilities, sports and music venues requiring overflow parking, as well as access lanes for emergency vehicles through greenways.
? Turfstone’s apertures also can be filled with aggregate for stormwater runoff management and is suitable for use on boat ramps, on embankments, slopes, river and low-flow channels, and on shorelines (without extreme wave action) to control erosion and provide soil stabilization.
Turfstone parking applications can be designed with a densegraded base, or for infiltration and storage of stormwater, with an open-graded base. Proper design, material selection, and construction of the base are essential to successful performance. For erosion control applications, Turfstone may be placed directly on graded and compacted soil. Please see ICPI’s Tech Spec No. 8 for detailed guidance on design and installation. Turfstone can be installed in either a stack bond or a running bond with a 3/4 offset. Place the side with the false joints facing up. Solid interlocking pavers can be placed in walkways, paths, and on ramps to accommodate pedestrian foot traffic and to provide a firm, stable and slip-resistant surface for visually-impaired persons or those using wheeled mobility devices.
