Check out a recent installation of our heavy duty paver for a retail access road and loading bay turning area in Doncaster

Clients requirement

The new retail staff building at Doncaster had a loading bay that needed access by Class 2 HGV trucks, transit vans and parcel orries. To get planning permission the new access road and turning point needed to conform to the latest SuDS (Sustainable urban Drainage Systems), requirements and also needed to obtain the best BREEAM rating possible in relating to the product used having the lowest environmental impact. The access road needed to be fully permeable, not to contribute to water runoff, and able to manage the dynamic loadings imposed by regular trafficking of trucks weighing up 32 tonnes over two axles.  Also the access road needed to require little or no maintenance and to be secure in all weathers and temperatures.

TRUCKGRID-MAX specified

Truckgrid Max with a gravel finish was chosen - a heavy-weight thick recycled plastic porous paver suitable for road surfaces, parking areas and loading bay areas where delivery lorries, HGV's or vans will be using regularly.  Truckgrid Max is made from fully recycled plastics so in keeping with the environmental objective.  The access road and turning point was created following construction profile guidelines freely available from the Suregreen website. 

Benefits provided

Using Truckgrid Max the requirements of the client were met.  The access road met the latest SuDS regulations, was fully permeable and was cost effective to install.  Increased costs to install extra drainage on site was avoided and ecological impact kept as low as feasible.  Laying the pavers was labour saving and safer to lay as the weight of each piece of the Truckpave Max allows it to be installed by one man.  The Truckgrid Max is hardwearing and has a high resistance to frost impact giving the access road an exceptionally long working life. Truckgrid-Max is a permeable paving solution that is one of the best porous pavement solutions in its class - designed for HGV's, lorries and cars.
