Plexus

What is Plexus?

PLEXUS® Plastic Eco-Pavers made of Plastic waste are affordable and sustainable pavers that allow the passage of rainwater into the subsoil and parking lot runoff, to generate surfaces without humidity and without mud.

PLEXUS® is a modular system of Permeable Firm Pavers that structure the soil providing load capacity up to 100 tons of weight per square meter, have a long useful life and are made of plastic waste.

Our PLEXUS® is durable enough to support heavy loads that are perfect for creating a great design and because our Plastic pavers and paving dots are guaranteed for the life of your home or business, you can rest assured that your new outdoor space will stand the test of time.

Design With Purpose

We have a clarity of purpose for our business: to challenge conventional thinking and to disrupt traditional paving methods; to ultimately create a better, cleaner, less toxic environment for Communities projects.

By offering a simple new green technology that is easily actionable, together we can make an impact now, Less flooding, Cleaner air and water, Less heat, Less thermal pollution. Less waste in the landfill, Fewer toxins from runoff pollutants as well coal tar & asphalt. A more natural landscape

Sub-Base Considerations For Storm Water Detention

Crushed aggregate meeting ASTM No. 57 is commonly used for open-graded subbases along with ASTM No. 2 to No. 4. These materials are widely available, and they are recommended for most PLEXUS Permeable Paver applications.

These materials will have a nominal porosity (volume of voids/total volume of base) over 0.32 and a storage capacity in the void space (volume of voids/volume of aggregate) approaching 40%. A 40% void space provides 0.4 cubic feet of storage capacity for each cubic foot of aggregate (the volume of the base will need to be 2.5 times the volume of water to be stored).

Sub-Base for Grass Infill Installations. Should be a .3/4″ minus, sandy gravel road base. Although reducing the stormwater storage capacity to around 20%, this base will grow grass, support heavy loads, and drain.

DESIGN FEATURES

The robust cells allow our 2 lb grid to handle over 1 million lbs per square foot load! No gravel migration, compaction, or dust. 100% permeability. The grid can be pressed together by hand, with no tools, and no clips. With the integral X-anchors, no staking is needed. A bottom flange prevents sinking. Other systems are either too flexible & weak & can’t handle trucks or traffic, or too rigid because soils move and paving cracks! The S-Flex Joints solve these problems giving our grid the best of both. A versatile design for any climate soil or weight
 

INTRODUCTION TO THE PLEXUS SYSTEM

In urban watersheds, almost all of the impervious surface area is represented by building rooftops and paved surfaces. In residential areas most of the paved area is represented by the roadway system and residential driveways. Parking lots and paved industrial storage areas represent an even larger portion of the impervious surface in commercial and industrial areas. Impervious pavements can produce two-thirds of the excess runoff in an urban catchment. Runoff from impervious pavements contributes a substantial loading of hydrocarbons and heavy metal pollutants, and contributes greatly to the increased temperature of surface runoff. In most urban jurisdictions, a paved roadway system with a traditional curb and gutter configuration provides a key component of the overall urban drainage system. Surface flow from adjoining tributary watersheds is conveyed directly into catch basin inlets and connected piping systems. In these traditional impervious paved systems, the runoff coefficient (runoff volume) is increased and the time of concentration is decreased resulting in increased peak rates of runoff. PLEXUS provides highly permeable stabilized surfaces that can be used for the movement and parking of vehicles (automobiles, trucks, construction equipment, aircraft, etc.) and storage of materials and equipment.

Drive on the surface, drain & detain stormwater below. Compared to conventional pavement, the PLEXUS system is designed to infiltrate stormwater runoff instead of shedding it off the surface. TRUEGRID will reduce the amount of runoff by allowing water to pass through surfaces that would otherwise be impervious. The stormwater passes through the load-bearing surface and aggregate subbase that are selected based on the intended application and required infiltration rate. Runoff is stored in the stone aggregate subbase course/storage layer and allowed to infiltrate into the surrounding soil (functioning like an infiltration basin).

A TRUEGRID surface has very high initial surface infiltration rates and can immediately infiltrate and store rainfall and runoff from high-intensity rainstorms. In many cases, direct runoff is eliminated. The surface infiltration rates for PLEXUSTRUEGRID will in most cases exceed 800 inches/hour. This is several orders of magnitude higher than all the rainfall intensities encountered in the Southwest and Midwest USA.
