Porous Paving Improves Infiltration
Porous paving is a green infrastructure solution for commercial developments and private residences. Permeable paving incorporates products that improve runoff infiltration. Unlike concrete and asphalt, porous paving products absorb runoff while also stabilizing driveways, parking lots and fire lanes.

Permeable paving can be achieved with a number of different products including permeable pavers and cellular confinement systems. Each of our porous paving products have unique designs that improve stormwater management.
PaveDrain® may look like a permeable paver but this innovative porous paving system is actually an articulated concrete block. Every PaveDrain® paver has an arched internal storage chamber that collects stormwater runoff. The runoff infiltrates through the porous paver’s open joints.
The joints in between PaveDrain® blocks are left ¼” open in order to maximize infiltration of storm water and sediment. Despite these small openings, the porous paving system is ADA compliant.
PaveDrain® has an HS-25 load rating which means it can withstand heavy loads. You can install this permeable paving product in parking lots, fire lanes, residential drives ways, cart paths and emergency access roads.
To accurately report captured stormwater runoff, add the INFIL-Tracker Monitoring System which measures the volume of runoff captured and the infiltration rates.
Enviro-Flo™ is a traditional permeable paver that reduces stormwater runoff while improving site aesthetics.
This paver is installed typically installed in a herringbone pattern that is both functional and attractive. The herringbone pattern interlocks the permeable pavers which increases support for vehicular traffic.
Enviro-Flo™ is offered in two colors: coastal tan and granite. It can be installed for walk ways, paths, parking lots, patios and pool decks.
Turfstone™ is an open grid permeable paver that allows turf to grow through paver’s openings. Each Turfstone™ block is a square 60 pound permeable paver with voids. The porous paving product can be filled with aggregate or left open so that grass can grow through.
Turfstone™ can be installed for overflow parking, fire lanes, parking lots and paths.
Cellular Confinement Products
Tufftrack™ is a cellular porous paving system manufactured by NDS. The Tufftrack™ system is comprised of 24″ x 24″ panels that are manufactured from 100% recycled plastic. The panels connect to create a permeable surface and a stable base that maximizes stormwater infiltration and reduces runoff.
Tufftrack’s hexagonal cells have a unique webbed design that secures fill material in place while still allowing roots to penetrate the cells. Each nested cell has a dome base that is designed to maximize drainage and lateral water movement.
The Tufftrack™ panels are connected by tongue and groove clips. These clips lock the panels in place to create a strong base with incredible strength. Tufftrack’s unfilled compressive strength is 86,563 pounds and 400,000 pounds when filled.
Install Tufftrack™ to achieve permeable paving green parking lots, cart paths, residential driveways, fire lanes, overflow parking, rain gardens, equestrian parks and construction entrances.
EZ Roll Grass Paver
NDS’s EZ Roll Grass Paver is a porous paving system with a honeycomb cellular structure. The single-roll grass pavers are designed to improve absorption of stormwater and prevent soil compaction.
The EZ Roll Grass Paver is a pre-assembled roll made from 100% recycled HDPE plastic. The nested honeycomb cells are interconnected with cross links. The bottom of each cell is 80% open in order to maximize infiltration. The open cells also make it easy for roots to grow through the paving system which improves turf establishment.
Lock the grass paver rolls together with the end-to-end locking clips. This simple to use system makes installation quick and easy.
The EZ Roll Grass Paver has an unfilled compressive strength of 53,683 and a filled strength of 400,000 pounds which means it can bear the load of parking lots, emergency vehicles and trucks. The EZ Roll is also well suited for light loads like golf cart paths, equestrian parks and bike paths.
EZ Roll Gravel Paver
The EZ Roll Gravel Paver is a pre-assembled porous paving system that is designed to be a more sustainable gravel road. The honeycomb cellular network stabilizes the compacted gravel surface while improving stormwater absorption.
This NDS porous paving system is made from 100% recycled HDPE plastic. Unlike our other cellular systems, the EZ Roll Gravel Paver is available in tan, black, red and gray.
The EZ Roll Gravel Paver cells are interconnected with crosslinks. Each hexagonal cell is left 80% in order open to improve drainage and permeability. On the bottom of the roll is a layer of filter fabric that has been permanently fused onto the EZ Roll Gravel Paver. The geotextile fabric secures the stone fill while also allowing for proper drainage.
The empty gravel paver cells have a compressive strength of 53,683 pounds and a filled compressive strength of 500,000 pounds.
Install the EZ Roll Gravel Paver for light loads like paths and trails, medium loads including parking lots, residential driveways and overflow parking, and heavy loads such as equipment yards and emergency vehicle access roads.
A geocell is a three-dimensional cellular structure that promotes stability and positive drainage, two critical goals for porous paving.
When rain and runoff infiltrate the ground, geocell’s infill absorbs the water which drains through the cell’s pores. Weight is distributed evenly across the geocell’s surface in order to stabilize the subgrade and support the load.
Our American Made geocell is manufactured from virgin high density polyethylene (HDPE). Virgin HDPE is strong, durable and flexible which makes it an excellent material for subgrade stabilization. Geocell is manufactured in 58 flexible strips of HDPE that are shipped as collapsed panels. The panels expand during installation and are secured in place with clips or stakes.
The honeycomb cells can be filled with a variety of infill materials including crushed stone, top soil, sandy soil, concrete and gravel.
