  • Create Car Parking Areas

    Overflow, driveway, commercial, grass or gravel areas – a great solution for reinforcing the ground to create car parking areas!

  • Suitable for Cars and Vans

    Load bearing capacity up to 400t/m²

  • Paths & Walkways

    A great solution for creating pedestrian pathways, disabled access routes, and golf buggy pathways on grass.

  • Easy Installation

    Supplied as 4 pre-connected pavers, therefore providing rapid installation. However, this does depend on the size of the installation area.

  • SUDS

    Sustainable Urban Drainage Solution (SUDS) due to 95% open surface structure.

  • Excellent Shear Connection

    Allows slopes up to 1:8 / 12% / 7° and no additional pinning

Bodpave 40 Key Uses

For a permeable porous car park that is likely to be used sparingly or intermittently the 40mm paver is likely to be the correct choice.  You still have a hardwearing paver, but overall costs are reduced both on material costs and spill removal costs.

Filled with a 5mm to 10mm angular gravel the 40mm porous paver will create a hardwearing walkway.  This can be done – depending on ground conditions – with or without a hardcore base.

Bodpave 85 Key Uses

The structure and shape of the gravel grid has been constructed to cope with everyday use. This coupled with a unique selected blend of recycled plastics, made to make the gravel grid very robust, makes it ideal for hard working permeable commercial car parks.

Any access road made from cellular permeable grids needs to be able resist higher dynamic loadings because of the often-increased speed of the traffic.  The Bod Paving 85 has been designed with integral locating spikes that has built to keep the gravel grid non-moving, locked, and long-lasting even under pressure

When used to construct grass parking bays, the main problems using a grass permeable paver, are drought, lack of growing depth and grass root entanglement with the grass permeable paver.  Bod-paving 85 has unique built-in designs to counteract these problems.  For the drought there are water catchment trays within each cell to retain moisture.  For the lack of growing depth, the integral spikes are 35mm long allowing a extra thick bedding without losing stability.  And for grass root entanglement – to help the stability and resist deformation – the moulded shape encourages grass entrapment and protection of the roots.

General note:

It is assumed that any installation is following either Grassmats Installation guidelines or have sought technical advice from Grassmats Ltd.

Bodpave for gravel and grass use

Bodpave plastic pavers are a great way to create parking areas and ground protection in any environment. Because these plastic grid pavers are designed to meet the needs of all residential and commercial projects, from driveways to parking and access roads, they are suitable for a range of environments.

Plastic driveway grids offer homeowners a cost effective alternative to concrete, while still providing durability and functional benefits. Furthermore, grass pavers and gravel pave systems are easy to install, taking less time than traditional pavement options, and require less maintenance in the long run. For more information, please see the manufacturer’s website.

Product FAQs

Yes, if the traffic is going to be cars or heavier.  For pedestrian traffic, please contact Grassmats Technical

Bodpave, using the correct infills and construction profile, has been designed to be fully permeable.

It most cases you do need planning permission especially if there is a change of use of land.

If the slope is less than 5% then yes.  If the slope is more than 5% but less than 12.5% – yes but please contact Grassmats Technical.  Otherwise, above 12.5% it is not advisable.

Yes.   Bodpave has been designed to be used within a SUDs system when that is required.

If installed correctly and used appropriately the expected lifetime of Bodpave 85 is 25 years compared to Bodpave 40, which is 10 years.

Bodpave 40 is very suitable for a gravel domestic driveway.

Above all, if installed correctly and used for cars only, then it is very suitable.

40 – Where there is a solid well-draining sub-soil or there is a tree root issue and excavation of the topsoil is limited the 40mm paver would be a better option.  It still has all the hardwearing characteristics of the 85mm paver.  Again, ideally the infill used is a 3mm to 5mm angular free draining gravel.

85 – The main problem using a permeable cellular grid for a Bridleway, is the point loadings caused by the horses.  The plastics used to make Bod paving 85 combined with the designed cell shape give a flexible but very strong and robust porous paver able to cope with horse movements.  Ideally the infill used is a 3mm to 5mm angular free draining gravel.

40 – For the vast majority of gravel driveways, the 40mm cellular paver is correct choice.  It is strong and hardwearing enough to handle daily slow-moving car movements to endure for many years.

85 – On occasion where the driveway is also access to an oil tank or a septic tank a paver with a higher bearing capacity is required.
