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.
The concrete benefits of StoneSet’s porous paving technology are clear. Peace of mind is much harder to measure, but no less important.
StoneSet is perfect for commercial and private applications. Whether it be for customers and clients, or friends and family, from young to old. You can rest assured that StoneSet’s solution is quicker to install, more environmentally friendly, longer lasting, more visually appealing, and safer. We can’t wait to work with you!
