Permeable Proflow Pavers™

A natural lifetime application for stormwater management, Black Locust Lumber has many patent-pending designs using Black Locust for the collection of Permeable Proflow Pavers™.

ProFlow Permeable Pavers™

A patent-pending design utilizing Black Locust, ProFlow Permeable Pavers™ are naturally rot-resistant for a lifetime. In stormwater management applications, the pavers reduce runoff volume and rate, filter pollutants, and help restore and recharge groundwater resources while reducing the heat island effect. As compared with alternatives, Permeable Proflow Pavers™ are sustainably manufactured with minimum CO2 emissions and naturally sequester carbon. Our paver setts are available in custom sizes as well as FSC® certified. Permeable Proflow Pavers™ can satisfy prerequisites and earn points towards LEED, BREEAM, and Living Building Challenge certifications.

WHY PROFLOW PAVERS?

Longevity

Black Locust is rot-resistant due to its natural genetic makeup. Natural rot-resistance, water-resistance, and anti-fungal properties give Black Locust a lifetime of 50+ years. Its durability and strength make it an excellent and long-lasting landscape surface.

Heat Island Effect

The light color and material properties of Black Locust make it a cooler alternative to concrete and other landscape surfaces, thus reducing the heat island effect. The heat island effect is the difference in temperature between a developed area and natural area. The addition of plants or moss between the pavers can help further reduce the heat absorbed by the ground covering.

Carbon Positive Product

Black Locust has many environmental advantages. Carbon sequestration occurs naturally in Black Locust, and its durability allows this sequestration to exceed beyond 50+ years. Our Black Locust products are minimally processed during the manufacturing, therefore, our CO2 emissions are greatly reduced.

Water Quality

Proflow Permeables™ reduce stormwater runoff and replenish groundwater systems by allowing water percolation between pavers. Pollutants are filtered out during natural bio-filtering processes, improving water quality. In addition, permeability reduces flooding and refreezing. Water infiltration rates of up to 123 inches per hour can be achieved using joint filler ASTM No.8.

Installation

The Black Locust paver panels or setts (12 blocks each) are attached to a recycled wire mesh that lays flat for easy installation. The paver panels can be laid next to each other for quick and simple installation over large areas. The 3⁄8” joints are then fastened with joint filler. Our system will accommodate any joint filler.

Chemical Free

Black Locust is 100% naturally rot resistant. No enhancement products such as oils, stains, or paints are required to maintain the beauty and longevity of Black Locust Material. By utilizing additives, this creates required maintenance to the wood. The UV denigration of oiled, paint, and or stained Black Locust Material will Be subject to frequent maintenance to restore evenness to the overall color.
