ASPHALT BLOCK

ASPHALT BLOCK WITH POST-INDUSTRIAL RECYCLED CONTENT:

  • Produced with Post-Industrial Recycled Content, Hanover's Asphalt Block is an eco-friendly paving alternative.
  • Examples include asphalt road grindings, fly ash, and PCV scrap from pipe manufacturing.
  • Closed-loop industrial cycle due to the use of recycled content.
  • Less than a 1% absorption rate.

ASPHALT BLOCK CHESAPEAKE COLLECTION

  • Infused with clam shells to create the newest addition to the Chesapeake Collection.
  • The addition of recycled clam shells boosts the recycled content of Hanover's Asphalt Block, helping to earn LEED points and SS Credits.

Prest® Pavers

PREST® PAVERS WITH RECYCLED CONTENT:

  • Hanover's concrete Prest® Pavers are manufactured with materials that would otherwise have been discarded, reducing the need for virgin materials.
  • The need to landfill discarded products and the impact of mining is reduced, conserving natural resources and energy.
  • High compressive strength and density give Prest® Pavers durability and low water absorption.

Roof & Plaza pavers

ROOF & PLAZA PAVERS:

  • Heat-producing rooftops and plazas are turned into cooler environments, decreasing the building's energy consumption and reducing the heat island effect.
  • Hanover® Pavers work hand-in-hand with Green roof assemblies to provide environmental benefits and aesthetically appealing rooftops or plaza gardens.
  • Can be used to create walkways, terraces, or searing areas while providing positive drainage.
  • [VIEW ROOF & PLAZA PAVER COLLECTION].

GLACIER WHITE ROOF PAVERS:

  • White pavers have proven to be a durable and effective solution to increased reflectivity, reducing the heat island effect.
  • The water absorption rate is less than 4%, reducing surface staining that can affect reflectivity.
  • Glacier White Prest® Pavers are made of a single material throughout; surface wear does not adversely affect their reflectivity values.
  • Hanover's Glacier White Guardian® Paver System provides both reflective properties and wind uplift resistance.

PERMEABLE PAVING UNITS

BENEFITS OF PERMEABLE PAVING UNITS:

  • Stormwater is directed through a series of natural filtration systems - through joints or voids in the pavers and into the subgrade below.
  • Erosion and stormwater runoff are reduced.
  • Land-use is increased through more efficient use of the total building site.
  • Water quality is improved.
  • Project costs for drainage and retention
      systems are reduced.
  • Access for underground repairs is permitted.

PERMEABLE PAVING UNIT PRODUCTS:

ECOGRID® AND AQUA-LOC®

ECOGRID®:

  • Provides the project with 37% open area for drainage aggregate or grass turf.
  • Has the largest percentage of open space in the industry, allowing the most opportunity for water to permeate into the sub-soil.
  • Interlocks for stability to support light vehicular traffic.
  • [VIEW THE ECOGRID® PRODUCT PAGE]

AQUA-LOC®:

  • Interlocks for stability and provides open space for drainage aggregate.
  • Aqualoc® will provide the project with 5.7% open area per unit, allowing water to be infiltrated at a rate of 7" to 8" per hour.
  • Can be installed mechanically to save time and reduce cost.
