Eco-Line is a special order product that can be manufactured for large scale commercial projects in a variety of custom colors and textures. With four lengths in two widths, these long, linear, heavy duty pavers create a unique look for permeable projects. Special spacer bars create a 7mm gap between Eco-Line units which allows water to flow through. When installed on an open graded base with a fine stone chip between the joints, this allows rainwater to permeate the paved surface where it can then be absorbed by the subsoil. In developments where there are restrictions on the amount of land that can be covered with non-permeable surfaces, using Eco-Line can be very useful. As well, it can be mechanically installed, which makes it a cost effective choice for large scale projects.
Eco-Line is a multi-length rectilinear shaped paver which is typically installed mechanically for commercial permeable applications. Eco-Line can be customized for your particular design requirements. (Minimum qty. applies)
RECOMMENDED BASE STABILIZATION – one layer of DriveGrid™" stabilization grid between subgrade and base material. Recommended depth 8” to 10” below pavers for maximum stability and performance. Use under Permeable Base. If available, always refer to site engineer’s specifications.
STANDARD BASE AND BEDDING COURSE – Not applicable
PERMEABLE BASE – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾“ clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together.)
PERMEABLE BEDDING COURSE – 1” thick of 1/4” clear open-graded chip stone – (ASTM No. 8) screeded over base.
SPECIAL NOTE: CONCRETE DIRECT OVERLAY –Not applicable
JOINTING MATERIAL AND JOINT STABILIZATION- Clear stone chip (ASTM No. 9) is swept in as jointing infill.
HANDLING – Can be installed by hand but very difficult. Should be installed mechanically.
EDGE RESTRAINT - Always install an edge restraint around the perimeter of any paver installation not restrained by building structures. Spike-in edge restraints come in plastic and metal and work well for most applications. A concrete curb or a sub-surface concrete wedge can also be installed to retain the edge.
PAVER COMPACTION - Always use a protective polymer pad on the bottom of your compactor when doing the final compaction of the pavers. An alternative is to use a rubber-roller compactor for the final compaction.
CLEANERS – Any cleaner specifically designed for pavers may be used for color restoration or general cleaning. Follow manufacturer’s dilution rates and application procedures. Always test a small area to make sure the results are as expected.
