SuDS paving - from top UK suppliers

SuDS paving is designed to reduce the volume of surface run-off, particularly in urban areas, and hence lower the risk of flooding. By allowing rainwater to infiltrate into the ground across a wide area, rather than forcing into a few specific locations, SuDS paving mimics natural drainage systems.

The permeability of an installation, which is dependent on the surface used, is measured in litres per second per hectare. SuDS paving surfaces that allow water to infiltrate into the soil include porous resin surfacing, porous concrete paving, porous asphalt and grass pavers.
