Why Your School Should Forget About Its Old Hardscape

In the busy day-to-day of many schools, there’s often not a lot of priority put on the hardscape surrounding it. After all, hardscapes are nothing more than something to walk on– or are they? So often we see school playgrounds filled with sand, gravel, and rubber mulch. Which are not the safest, most heat-resistant, and most environmentally-friendly options, especially for a hardscape that will mostly be used by children. Here is why schools should be adopting porous pavement instead of “traditional” school hardscape.

STONESET’S SLIP RESISTANCE HELPS EVERYONE

From hospitals to playgrounds, campuses to shopping centres and beyond, paved areas are at constant risk of becoming a liability.

Traditional design has been stuck in a rut, relying on the same solid concrete slabs that collect water on their surface whenever it rains. 

Accumulated moisture turns outdoor areas into health hazards for our loved ones, and liabilities for businesses. There is a newer, safer solution.

StoneSet’s permeable paving process is the answer. By using locally sourced and recycled materials, we can create an aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly, and most importantly human-friendly alternative to the concrete and asphalt of yesteryear.

Two key differences set us above and beyond in slip resistance. The porous nature of our material allows moisture to drain into the ground beneath, reducing pooling and the creation of slick patches. Second, by casting a layer of sand on the surface, we can provide an instant anti-slip finish.

Our wide range of materials in various sizes can be laid in beautiful combinations of shapes to create awe-inspiring outdoor displays while at the same time keeping those on it safer than traditional building materials.
