TuffTrack Grass Pavers form a permeable pavement surface that allows light to heavy vehicle traffic over live turf. This system employs honeycomb cells that allow grass roots to grow without compaction from surface loads, and allow storm water to drain directly through to the substrate.  The 24″ square panels made of 100% recycled HDPE are rigid, interlocking, and have a compression strength of 98,770 psf. This permeable pavement surface is extremely low-impact on the environment. By allowing grass to grow over the driving surface, reducing erosion and pollution from storm water runoff, and eliminating the hot-spot caused by asphalt, TuffTrack Grass Pavers are an environmentally-friendly permeable pavement solution for many applications.  Tufftrack Grass Pavers are a honeycomb cell grass paver or porous pavement “best management practice” product that allows light to heavy vehicular traffic to drive over turf areas. It prevents compaction allowing healthy root growth. A tongue and groove latching system provides quick and secure connections between the paver sections. Most importantly, Tufftrack Grass Pavers drastically reduce storm water runoff and the need for storm water inlets and piping.

Tufftrack Grass Paver InstallationHeavy Load and Fire Lane Access:

There are two primary methods of grass treatment for “Fire Lane and Heavy Vehicular” access roads. The first method of planting is illustrated in the detail below. The sod or finished grass surface is above the paving grid work. The “second” method utilizes a seeded surface where there is a likelihood of more frequent vehicular traffic. Fire lanes are generally designated for emergency traffic only and therefore do not need the exposed (paver) surface found in the second method.

Light to Moderate Weight Applications:

The “Light to Moderate Weight” application can be used for pedestrian, golf cart and similar applications. If soils are questionable you can always use the “Heavy Load” grass treatment. Note that “sprinkler heads” can be placed through the bottom of the Tuffrack Grassroad Pavers if conditions warrant their use.
