Latest News

What is UHI effect (Urban Heat Island effect) and why we need Permeable paving systems like ECORASTER.

Urban island heat effect: Rising temperatures in Aussie cities could create death traps. SOME parts of Australia are very hot - unnaturally hot, in fact. They’re turning into death traps, and it’s our own fault.

AUSTRALIAN cities are 5C hotter compared to surrounding areas because of a phenomenon known as the ‘Urban Island Heat’ effect that could eventually turn them into death traps.

Densely populated urban areas including Sydney, Melbourne ,Perth and Brisbane are baring the brunt of the UHI across the country and not even a looming winter can stop it.

The UHI occurs when natural permeable surfaces including grass, plants or bush land are replaced with concrete, asphalt and infrastructure.

According to the Centre for Science Education (UCAR), urban development causes surfaces that were once permeable and moist to become impermeable and dry. They heat up during the day and retain the warmth but infrastructure prevents it from escaping into the cold night.

 

How Good is Ecoraster

This video should convince anyone who may doubt the strength and durability of Ecoraster. Simulating an expeditionary environment at the Osprey test facility, Ecoraster E50 was put down on a dirt road without surface preparation or filling the cells. We used a Caterpillar D5C bulldozer, weighing in at over 9000kg to simulate hard abuse by tracked vehicles on a temporary road. There was no structural and only minor cosmetic damage. With proper installation as per manufacturers specs, there should be no damage over time and the product is covered by a 20 year warranty.
