Make it rain because we’ve got you covered!
Aquastorm is an anti-flooding permeable paver with through-the-roof infiltration rates of nearly 2,400 inches (60,000mm) per hour. This is achieved with consistent 1 5/8" joint spacing and a surface void space ratio of 38%. It is designed for modern projects that benefit from linear looks and green initiatives. Aquastorm is designed for multiple joint fill options, including natural turf. Its 4" (100mm) thickness permits both pedestrian and vehicular traffic applications and its 2:1 plan ratio lends itself nicely to both linear and herringbone-style patterns.
Joint fill options
Grass or turf are an eco-friendly and colorful option to fill gaps. While offering infiltration rates nearly equal to stone fill, they add a softer, greener look to a property.
Stone fill is ideal for low-maintenance and high traffic areas and offers the highest infiltration rates tested. Our testing showed that Aquastorm could handle the equivalent of 1000 100-year storms.

If you’re not sure what product best suits a project, consult this permeability chart with fully-tested infiltration rates for all permeable Techo-Bloc products. We test all of our products and consistently exceed industry standards. For example, depending on the geographical area, a 100-year storm is typically 2 in./hr., while 90% of rain events are 1 in./hr.
Techo-Bloc offers various eco-conscious and cost-effective pavements for residential and commercial storm water management. These permeable pavements were designed to allow for the proper percolation of surface water into the ground; reducing the risk and severity of flooding, eliminating puddles, speeding up the melting process of snow, reduced winter ice hazards and cost-savings on de-icing salt and snow removal. Many municipalities encourage the use of permeable pavements by offering tax incentives, utility fee reductions, expedited permitting and increased percentage of pave-able land surface with your local government to see if they offer and local incentives for permeable pavements.
Institutional, Commercial & Industrial
Exceptional designs require exceptional products. All Techo-Bloc commercial products are engineered to surpass every industry standard in order to ensure outstanding performance. Our pavers, permeable pavers, slabs and walls are manufactured to achieve higher compressive and flexural resistance, lower absorption rates, increased thermodynamically-stabilized pigmentation and industry-leading dimensional precision. Uniquely remarkable hardscape solutions, bringing your vision to life.
