Porous Paving

One key feature of this location is a requirement for porous paving to ensure that rainwater is rapidly directed to the water-table and so avoiding build-up of pollutants which happens when stormwater is directed to the rivers via the drain network.
Anywhere that porous paving is required, StoneSet resin bound products provide a strong, technically sound and yet a stylish and beautiful surface.
With exceptionally high porosity ratings, a range of glorious colours and incredibly high strength and durability characteristics StoneSet can provide a lasting driveway and pathway option.

Also favoured for pool surrounds and outdoor eating areas StoneSet is growing in popularity day by day as more and more specifiers turn to a product they can trust and one that gives them so many design options.
Sustainability is not just a current “hot topic” it is a key to the future care of the planet and our resources. Water is vital to us for so many reasons and Stocklands/Murrays Beach is a demonstration of a refreshing approach where the use of up to date thinking and design will produce results.

So call us on 1300 392 155 and let us discuss the options available for your porous driveway.
