Permeable Proflow Pavers™

A patent-pending design utilizing Black Locust, Permeable Proflow Pavers™ are naturally rot-resistant for a lifetime. In stormwater management applications, the pavers reduce runoff volume and rate, filter pollutants, and help restore and recharge groundwater resources while reducing the heat island effect. As compared with alternatives, Permeable Proflow Pavers™ are sustainably manufactured with minimum CO2 emissions and naturally sequester carbon. Our paver setts are available in custom sizes as well as FSC® certified. Permeable Proflow Pavers™ can satisfy prerequisites and earn points towards LEED, BREEAM, and Living Building Challenge certifications.

  • Longevity

    Black Locust Permeable Proflow Pavers™ are decay-resistant, water-resistant, and anti-fungal due to its natural genetic makeup. Its durability and strength make it an ideal choice for lifetime stormwater applications.

  • Stormwater Management

    Black Locust Permeable Proflow Pavers™ reduce stormwater runoff. Pollutants are filtered out during natural bio-filtering processes, improving water quality and recharging groundwater resources.

  • Heat Island Effect

    The light color and natural properties of Black Locust Permeable Proflow Pavers™ make them a cooler and healthier alternative to concrete and other landscape surfaces.

  • Safety Edge Seal

    The patent-pending Safety Edge Seal feature allows for ease of installation by coating the wire mesh edges with a natural protective seal. The Safety Edge Seal is available on all models.

  • Carbon Positive Product

    Black Locust has many environmental advantages. Carbon sequestration occurs naturally in Black Locust, and its durability allows this sequestration to exceed beyond 50 years. Our Black Locust products are minimally processed during the manufacturing, therefore, our CO2 emissions are greatly reduced.
