  • Cerama Pave permeable pavers from Langford Direct

    Cerama Pave permeable pavers from Langford Direct

    Langford Direct is now able to provide solutions using Cerama Pave, the UK’s first fully permeable recycled ceramic pavers. Unlike other so-called permeable pavers on the market, Cerama Pave has a porous structure allowing water to pass completely through the body of the block, rather than through a channel created between them. It means they absorb rainfall and help prevent stormwater run off.

    The pavers are SUDs compliant, allow groundwater to be replenished and provide water to trees. Made from recycled ceramic waste to exacting standards, they are tested to withstand low temperatures and available in a range of sizes and 10 colours. The pavers are normally smooth yet slip resistant but can be supplied with a tactile surface. Applications include footpaths and cycleways, eco-friendly developments, playgrounds and swimming pool surrounds.

  • Brochure shows how Delta Terraxx takes the pressure

    Brochure shows how Delta Terraxx takes the pressure

    Efficient protection and drainage for basements and flat roofs is offered by the high density polyethylene Terraxx range from Delta Membrane Systems, which is featured in a new brochure.

    The brochure shows how the two-ply sheet is a highly efficient protection and drainage system, and offers an ‘all-round’ solution for horizontal and vertical applications on compression-resistant substrates.

    With its fused-on polypropylene geotextile and integrated self-sealing edge, the product offers the functions of a protection, filtration and seepage layer making it particularly suitable for herbaceous roofs – intensively planted roofs which, being thickly covered with soil, do not need an extra water reservoir, but do need high drainage capacity.

    Details of how the product can be employed in high traffic areas are also given. Laid out on top of the waterproofing, it forms a robust protection and drainage layer. It may be covered with a layer of sand or chippings which, in turn, may be topped with walkable pavement of stones or flags.

    Reliable protection for basement walls is a further benefit offered by Terraxx, and this application is also covered in the brochure, along with full specifications for the Delta Terraxx product and a list of accessories.
