Coconut Grove Convention Center
This is an old installation of 3” black rings glued onto white polyester netting, and sold when our company was called Rings, Inc. The fabric and ring mats were 4’ wide by 20’ long and were easy to unroll and shape to fit any site. Making the mats was labor intensive because the rings were hand-glued. The second photo at left shows a catch basin to collection overflow stormwater. Porous grass paving drains fairly quickly depending on the subsoils and whether there is an outfall from the bottom of the base course. In Miami the tropical rains are sudden and sometimes quite heavy, so a backup system is a good idea. University of South Alabama also used a pipe collection system as a backup. It’s nice to see that the product has held up for twelve years at the time these photos were taken. Because of our superb product longevity, we have a lot of repeat customers. See Kenneth Myers Park Project Profile on the web, located within two blocks of the Coconut Grove Convention Center.
