VAST® Composite Permeable Pavers (4x8-inches) reduce the volume and velocity of stormwater runoff by infiltrating 4.9 gallons of rainwater per square foot per minute. They are manufactured in VAST's engineered composite material that includes 95 percent post-consumer recycled rubber and plastics.

They provide slip resistance and are manufactured with spacer lugs engineered to maintain a precise 0.275-inch space between pavers in conformance with ADA requirements.
