The Alternative Patio Paving Solution For Schools & Courtyards

The Advantages of Permeable Schools & Courtyards



Safety has to be the number one concern of any place supervising children. This means that you want a surface that makes tripping harder. The non-slip surface of porous paving will cut down on the times children fall on your playground and in your hallways.



Schools generally want to avoid constantly patching surfaces, as they have limited funds and would rather spend them on curriculum. Porous paving comes with three stone sizes, and they can work together to give maximum hold. It won’t need replacing for at least 10 years, and it will look good after years of heavy traffic.


No Puddles

Pooling water is a nuisance and a danger in schools. People walk through it and then trek water from outside to make indoor floors slippery. With porous paving, there are no puddles. The water seeps down to where you want it, out of the way of pedestrians.


Clear Markings

Schools like to mark out areas where children should line up for class and can play with the ball. The problem with non-porous pavement is that you have to paint on those spaces, and the paint wears away with time. Porous paving comes in a selection of bright colors which you can use to permanently and clearly spell out the dimensions of the basketball court and the line-up spot.



Schools have many kinds of surfaces, from parking lots to playgrounds, and each has its own requirements. The 3 stone sizes and range of colours lets you create different looks and meet different needs throughout the campus: a no-nonsense parking lot with a mix of the 3 sizes for great strength, whimsical surroundings in the playground with the 6 mm size stones for maximal permeability and safety, and so on.


Cooler Surfaces

The best part for students is the cooling effect that permeable paving provides. The light sandy grey tones of the stone mean the sunlight is reflected, rather than absorbed like concrete or asphalt is prone to do. Combined with the shade sails, you can be ensured that this paving remains cool on hot days and safe during cold days. Making Permeable paving the perfect year-round solution for schools & courtyards.
