BodPave 85 porous paving grids

TYPAR BodPave 85 porous pavers are a ground reinforcement paving grid system manufactured from recycled HDPE plastic. TYPAR BodPave 85 porous grass pavers / paving grids inter-connect with each other to provide a very strong stable surface capable of withstanding heavy vehicle loads. The porous paving grids can be filled with gravel, grass or a soil / rootzone to provide a gravel or a natural grass surface. Applications include regularly trafficked areas (pedestrian and vehicles), overflow grass parking lots, golf cart paths, grass fire truck lanes, wheelchair / handicap paths and grass driveways. TYPAR BodPave 85 permeable pavers can be installed with either a grass or gravel filled surface depending on the application required.


TYPAR BodPave 85 is available in black, green and natural white and is manufactured from UV Stabilized 100% recycled HDPE. TYPAR BodPave 85 porous paving grids are strong, chemically inert & non-toxic and provide a durable, safe and eco-friendly surface for trafficked areas.

TYPAR BodPave 85 grass pavers offer a cost effective solution to reinforcing and stabilizing worn or rutted grassed areas where requirements are for rainwater to enter the ground where it falls, particularly  as part of LID / NPDES specifications for water management.


  • Grass pavers have a load bearing capacity up to 367tons/yd²
  • 100% recycled plastic, fully recyclable
  • Pavers filled with grass allow free water drainage into the natural sub-grade
  • Natural looking, , permeable environmentally friendly & free draining reinforced grass surface / pavement
  • Porous paving helps reduce storm water run off and recharges groundwater supplies
  • Manufactured in accordance with LID & NPDES guidelines for water management


The design of TYPAR BodPave 85 pavers resists lateral movement, improves traction allowing expansion & contraction while allowing optimum grass growth, root protection and grass stabilization for vehicles. The open cell structure promotes quick rainwater infiltration and is suitable where natural drainage is required at source, particularly where a LID & NPDES development is required. TYPAR Geosynthetics recommends that TYPAR BodPave 85 permeable paving grids should be constructed onto a well prepared, free draining, firm and relatively level sub-base. The plastic paving grids connect together and are filled with either a gravel, sand:soil rootzone and seeded or turfed for a grass surface. Construction profiles for each application will be determined by specific site conditions & load bearing criteria. Please note that for all of TYPAR's grass paver / gravel paver installations, we strongly recommend that all areas have sufficient drainage prior to the installation, otherwise the product may not perform as required.
