Eco-Optiloc is the permeable version of the high performance, heavy duty Optiloc paver system. Special spacer bars create a 12mm gap between units which results in excellent infiltration rates when installed on an open graded base with fine stone chip between the joints. A heavy duty industrial paver that is one of the best solutions for vehicular pavements. Possessing the same L-shaped, tri-axis locking principle as world renowned Anchorlock, Eco-Optiloc offers one of the best solutions for permeable vehicular pavements. Like Anchorlock and Optiloc, Eco-Optiloc can also be laid mechanically. For large scale commercial projects, special order colors and textures are available.
Eco-Optiloc is a rectilinear shaped paver which is typically installed mechanically for commercial permeable applications. Eco-Optiloc 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.
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.
