Navigating Canadian Winters with Permeable Pavement

Nov 1, 2023

Anyone who has experienced a Canadian winter knows that it's not just about the enchanting snowfalls; it's also about the icy sidewalks, slippery driveways, and the potential hazards that come with them. Traditional surfacing materials like asphalt or concrete, while common, may not always be the best option when it comes to the icy and snowy conditions we face. Introducing Stormflow Surfacing's permeable pavement.

Beyond the numerous advantages of permeable pavement we discussed in earlier posts, there are two more significant benefits that make Stormflow Surfacing the ideal choice for Canadian winters:

1. Slip-resistant Surface

One of the standout features of Stormflow Surfacing is its exceptional slip resistance. Its unique design and material composition provide a surface that offers more traction, significantly reducing the chances of slipping. Whether it's an early morning frost, a rainy evening, or a snowy day, you can confidently walk on a Stormflow surface knowing that it has been designed with your safety in mind.

2. Enhanced Snow and Ice Melting

Water accumulation and poor drainage can lead to icy patches in winters, especially on driveways and pathways. With the efficient water drainage capabilities of Stormflow's permeable pavement, snowmelt and rainwater swiftly pass through the surface, minimizing ice formation. This natural draining effect reduces the need for frequent de-icing, making your winter maintenance tasks a bit easier.
