The permeable clay paver
Wienerberger developed Passaqua to meet the demand for permeable pavement in the market segment of high quality paving materials. Passaqua allows water to locally infiltrate into the soil.
Passaqua with smart spacers:
Passaqua is an extruded clay paver with spacers for 6 mm wide joints. Although the actual clay paver is not permeable, it allows the water to run off through the wider joints. In a pavement project using Passaqua, the jointing percentage amounts to around 10% of the total surface area. This is the minimum required for a permeable pavement.
Three benefits: durable, aesthetic and ecological:
Just like our standard clay pavers, the Passaqua has an authentic appearance and ages beautifully. The permeable joint allows the water to run off quickly, reducing the risk of algae, moss and weed growth in the joints. This combination of intrinsic durability, aesthetic qualities and permeable properties is the main asset of Passaqua.
Passaqua is good for you and for the environment:
There are both regional and planning regulations that govern the absorption and use of rainwater or its infiltration into the soil. Passaqua clay pavers are therefore the simplest solution. The permeable clay pavers allow the rainwater to infiltrate naturally into the soil. This facilitates maintenance of the groundwater level and also mitigates the risk of flooding.
The Passaqua is particularly suitable for patios and driveways of private properties and real estate developments, paved evacuation routes for the fire brigade and pavements in public spaces such as car parks, squares, pedestrian and cycling paths, etc.
The Passaqua clay pavers are available in 4 colours:
Passaqua is an unsanded extruded clay paver that is available in 4 colours: red, brown, grey and black.
Passaqua clay pavers are a smart choice:
Sustainable use of rainwater is everyone's responsibility.
Natural infiltration of rainwater into the soil through permeable clay pavers represents a sustainable solution. Wienerberger's Passaqua clay pavers are a smart choice:
• Rainwater infiltrates into the soil, obviating the need for additional infiltration facilities.
• Passaqua clay pavers are durable, colour fast, comfortable and easy to maintain.
