Issue

Old Reigatian Rugby Club had a worn and tired access route to the clubhouse that was in need of upgrading.  Also an existing grassed spectator area in front of the clubhouse adjacent to the playing field had become rutted and bare due to all year round footfall.  This same grassed area was also needed to allow access and parking for ambulances in case of emergencies so it was essential that it could take the loadings imposed by emergency vehicles. Overall, Old Reigatian Rugby Club wanted a cost-effective solution, easy to maintain and in keeping with their surroundings.

Why was the PP40 permeable pavers chosen over other's?

The PP40  was chosen over other permeable pavers due to its integral ground spikes for extra resistance to dislocation, strong natural shape for strength and the open structure of the paver. This open structure allowed strong entanglement of the grass with the paver. 

Also, the open structure of the paver permitted gravel to lock in place, resist displacement as well as produce an extremely strong and robust working surface.


Benefits of using PP40 Permeable Pavers for the Rugby Club

  • The rugby club has an access route to the clubhouse that they now rely on, which is keeping with the surroundings plus complies with the new planning regulations regarding sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS)
  • The access road and grass area are both fully permeable and doesn’t add any potential risk to local flooding 
  • Also, no extra drainage was required for both areas resulting in no additional costs incurred
  • The spectator area is safe and can now withstand most weather conditions. After the grass, has grown fully and entangled with the PP40 permeable pavers, it will have an appearance of a landscaped grass area keeping pace with local demands for the natural areas.
  • Lastly, Suregreen’s permeable pavers are tried and tested products with competitive prices compared to other similar pavers.
