Using ProFlow™ Permeable pavements in Urban Green Spaces can provide comfort benefits. Green spaces encourage people to get outside in the open. Lower surface air temperatures are more pleasant to spend time around. By using Black Locust hardwood pavers instead of concrete and asphalt, you get a more comfortable walking surface.
Assembly at North First used Permeable ProFlow Pavers™ for outdoor spaces that connect the buildings to green space and recreational opportunities by Gensler San Francisco.
Urban areas are on average 3-4 C / 37.4-39.2 F warmer than surrounding rural areas. Trees, vegetation, and permeable pavements can lower air temperatures. Permeable ProFlow Pavers™ can combat the heat island effect through evaporative cooling.
Black Locust wood by its natural composition provides an organic cooling surface compared to other materials. The water passes into the soil or supporting materials below.
Moisture within the pavement structure evaporates as the surface heats, thus creating a cooling effect.
Permeable ProFlow Pavers™ can help deal with the intensive summer heat in parks, green roofs, and urban green spaces. Maximize the benefits of permeable pavement solutions for climate change by using a sustainable wood material such as Black Locust.
By 2050 the frequency of severe flooding is expected to double. Impermeable hardscape features such as asphalt are common features in urban areas and prevent rain from being absorbed. ProFlow™ Permeable pavements allow water to be absorbed in the surrounding environment.
The ProFlow Permeable Pavers™ made of Black Locust integrated into the schoolyard of Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary School in San Francisco is cool on the feet and a durable surface the school can count on many years to come. Its usage is perfect for stormwater management and builds greater climate resilience with a Black Locust Lumber permeable pavers surface.
There is a growing need for an alternative to concrete and asphalt and other hardscape surfaces. Why? In areas where we are encouraging children to play it is important to install cool outdoor pavement surfaces and enhance the quality of life benefits by reducing heat stress on the human body.
The chance to connect with the natural world, an endless opportunity for creativity and imagination is a benefit of outdoor play. In contrast, ProFlow Permeable Pavers™ has the durability of 50+ years, which makes it an excellent and long-lasting landscape surface.
