Beat the Heat with Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2

This chart compares the temperatures below vehicles on different Permeable Paver Types. Only Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2 measured below the ambient outside temperature. Invisible Structures products were named "Best in Class."

Summer is coming, and inevitably, so will the heat. Invisible Structures product line helps to reduce the absorbed solar heat from the sun versus hard surfaces.

With Invisible Structures Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2, you can reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHI) and save money over concrete or asphalt paving.

UHI occurs when urban or developed land is hotter than surrounding rural and undeveloped land. Sunlight energy is absorbed by rooftops, pavements, structures, and other surfaces and then converted and released as heat energy into the air.

Since the spacing of man-made structures is much more dense in urban areas, more heat is released causing the outside temperature in a city to be sometimes 6 to 8 degrees hotter than rural areas.

The product line can help mitigate the effects of UHI. Cool pavements, more trees, green roofs, and unique development options help fight UHI in you site plans. Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2 address many components of Urban Heat Island mitigation including: thermal conductivity, heat storage capacity, density, albedo and emissivity. Grasspave2 has the added component of air-conditioning effect.
