EcoRaster FAQ’s

EcoRaster core features

What are the Core Features of EcoRaster’s porous paver?

  • Locks together to create a stable uniform surface. No lifting edges to interfere with cleaning or snow removal
  • Outstanding load bearing capacity (350 tonnes/m²)
  • Cellular grid structure reinforces and supports surface materials and stems erosion
  • EcoRaster structure supports loads and protects the fill from been compressed. This ensures the ground remains porous which facilitates more rapid absorption of storm water and protection of the water table
  • Structural separation of earth and footing materials minimizes the opportunity for mud to develop or footing to become contaminated
  • Cost effective compared with concrete or asphalt
  • High quality and durable even at extreme temperatures
  • Grid design is engineered to minimize expansion and contraction due to temperature changes

EcoRaster FAQ’s

How is EcoRaster installed?

EcoRaster installs quickly and easily. The product comes in pre-assembled sheets of 12 tiles (3 x 4 tiles, Each sheet measures 39 3/8” x 52 3/8”). Simply lay the tiles on the prepared surface and click the interlocking tabs to secure. Your EcoRaster is now ready for load-bearing.

Please note however that EcoRaster has many uses and the complete installation instructions may vary. Your installation may require additional steps to prepare the substrate (layers below the EcoRaster), Fill (what you fill the EcoRaster with), and Footing (What you place on top of the EcoRaster).

For information on some of the basic installation recommendations check out the installation tab or call us directly at 1-800-661-7002. Note; for any installation where water management is an issue the EcoRaster will perform optimally if it is installed on a porous substrate layer of gravel.
