ReadyflowTM , A NEW PERMEABLE PAVING SOLUTION WITH GREEN CREDENTIALS FROM CEMEX UK

Building materials supplier CEMEX UK has launched ReadyflowTM, a new concrete block permeable paver to add to the ReadyPave® range. The new paver has a unique interlocking shape and can be used as an integral part of a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS), a growing solution in the UK to excessive surface water caused by rain and flooding.
ReadyflowTM provides an attractive paving solution for larger areas, primarily commercial, where there is heavier traffic, be it vehicles or people. This paving allows surface water to pass through the voids in the block design into a sub grade or drainage system, where it can be effectively managed.
In recent years, the number of areas such as roads, pavements and buildings which are sealed by impermeable materials has increased. Rainfall which would normally be absorbed and retained by the ground is now often diverted off the sealed area, into the sewers and rivers. This results in the overload of sewers, river flooding and the risk of pollution into the water course.
Use of ReadyflowTM with SUDS allows a specified amount of water to be retained and then discharged in a controlled manner leading to reduced rainfall into sewers, cleaner rivers and streams, less pollution, improved ground water levels and water and air to the plant and tree roots.
The unique design of the 80mm block was created exclusively for CEMEX and is available in three colours Charcoal, Natural Grey and Burnt Ember (deep red).
The environmental credentials of this new block extend beyond their usage as it is made from CEMEX CEM 3 cement. The factory blended CEM 3 cement is supplied locally and comprises of 50% Portland cement (CEMI) and 50% ground granulated blast-furnace slag. This reduces its carbon footprint by up to 40%.
