A heavy-duty cellular paving system designed for intensive usage and high-load traffic applications. The cells can be filled with topsoil and seeded or with gravel to provide a robust structural surface. Truckcell™ is manufactured from 100% recycled plastic and is strong enough to withstand trafficking from vehicles with high wheel loadings such as trucks, buses, fire appliances and refuse vehicles.

The polymer construction is semi-flexible, giving it a greater resistance to cracking than concrete alternatives and each unit weighs less than 12 kg, which keeps it well within Health and Safety manual handling guidelines. This high performance lighter-weight product facilitates simple manual installation and can greatly reduce installation time and site plant costs. Once installed, the open-cell structure is filled with a free draining material to form a pervious surface which can provide surface water source control within a SuDS design. The cells are typically filled with either an angular gravel or with a growing media and then seeded to provide a green vegetated finish in accordance with the aesthetic and maintenance requirements of the project application.
