We live in a modern age with many technological advances. But it's not all GPS and iPods. Modern innovation is creating new technologies in every field, from medicine, to aviation, all the way through the spectrum.
The problem with traditional paving is that it is prone to flooding, which in turn leads to pollution. We are too advanced for this to be an issue anymore, it's time for a new technology.
"Sustainable urban drainage systems, or SUDS, offer a combined response to flood risk, and adaptation to climate change. SUDS mimic natural water systems, slowing water down to reduce flood risk whilst managing pollutants on site. As well as being environmentally friendly and minimising surface water run-off and flood risks, they offer neighbourhoods multiple benefits, including attractive planting features and increased biodiversity. They are an increasingly important part of our green infrastructure."
SUDS is the new wave of drainage technology that not only drastically reduces the chance of run-off, the main cause of flooding, it is environmentally friendly, and low maintenance. The resin we utilise to bind the stone together is completely non-toxic. It is made from a plant extract and once installed, is an inert material.
This innovation is much stronger than traditional paving slabs, with no loss of quality or durability. They even come in a range of colours.
