Project Summary

Invisible Structures, I wanted to let you know that we recently installed some Grasspave2 for a project at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath, Falls Oregon. The Fire Marshall was quite reluctant to accept the idea that his aerial apparatus vehicle would be driving on turf. He requested a field test before his final approval and I’ve attached photos from that successful day. There was a genuine look of disbelief on the faces of the firefighters as they hopped off the truck and looked down at the wheels resting (but not indenting) the turf.

Firefighters look on in disbelief as Grasspave2 porous paving supports the weight of the fire truck.
Grasspave2 is powerful enough to hold this 70,000 lb fire truck.
Outriggers on both the concrete and the Grasspave2 section.
Ladder fully extended, with full weight on the outriggers. Grasspave2 is as strong as the concrete.
