Techo-Bloc released its Inflo tongue-and-groove paver system, which was designed for the industrial, commercial and institutional markets. According to the company, the Inflo can be used to pave large surfaces and eliminates rainwater runoff.
Inflo includes an integrated self-locking system with vertical, horizontal and rotational interlock. In addition, it eliminates the need for retention basins and relieves demand on municipal storm sewers, says Éric Clavette, vice president of sales at Techo-Bloc.
The Inflo pavers, which are made from concrete, allow water to be directly absorbed into the ground. They can be used for a number of applications, including large parking lots, public squares, residential streets, sidewalks, crosswalks and patios.
The Inflo system’s design and installation process is based on four variables, including type of soil, regional rainfall conditions, loads and traffic intensity. Each variable is considered when installing the system in order to ensure efficiency.
