About GEO-GRID Wrap Method:
By wrapping PAVE EDGE Industrial or PAVE EDGE PRO edging in the Geo-Grid, youll create the strongest and most durable bond throughout your permeable pavement system. The most efficient, cost effective and durable method of installation for PERMEABLE INTERLOCKING CONCRETE PAVEMENT - Use PAVE EDGE Industrial Edge Restraint practicing the GEO GRID WRAP Method of Installation.

About GEO-GRID Wrap Method & Permeable Paving:
PAVE TECH introduced the Geo-Grid Wrap Method in 1997 to address securing the edging to the pavement without the use of spikes. Sections of the Geo-Grid are laid on top of the base (under the edging, bedding and pavers), then wrapped around PAVE EDGE Industrial and back under the pavement. This eliminates the need for labor-intensive and time consuming attachment of the Geo-Grid to the edge restraint. The Geo-Grid interlocks with the base, bedding and pavers to secure the edging to the pavement. The large openings in the Geo-Grid will not interfere with the permeability of the pavement.
What is Permeable Paving?
Permeable paving is a method of paving vehicle and pedestrian pathways that allows for infiltration of fluids. In pavement design the base is the top portion of the roadway that pedestrians or vehicles come into contact with. The media used for the base of permeable paving may be porous to allow for fluids to flow through it or nonporous media that are spaced so that fluid may flow in between the crack may be used. In addition to reducing surface runoff, permeable paving can trap suspended solids therefore filtering pollutants from stormwater. Examples include roads, paths, and parking lots that are subject to light vehicular traffic, such as cycle-paths, service or emergency access lanes, road and airport shoulders, and residential sidewalks and driveways. Although some porous paving materials appear nearly indistinguishable from nonporous materials, their environmental effects are qualitatively different. Whether it is pervious concrete, porous asphalt, paving stones or concrete or plastic-based pavers, all these pervious materials allow stormwater to percolate and infiltrate the surface areas, traditionally impervious to the soil below. The goal is to control stormwater at the source, reduce runoff and improve water quality by filtering pollutants in the substrata layers.
