TYPAR BodPave 85 porous pavers are a ground reinforcement paving grid system manufactured from recycled HDPE plastic. TYPAR BodPave 85 porous grass pavers / paving grids inter-connect with each other to provide a very strong stable surface capable of withstanding heavy vehicle loads. The porous paving grids can be filled with gravel, grass or a soil / rootzone to provide a gravel or a natural grass surface. Applications include regularly trafficked areas (pedestrian and vehicles), overflow grass parking lots, golf cart paths, grass fire truck lanes, wheelchair / handicap paths and grass driveways. TYPAR BodPave 85 permeable pavers can be installed with either a grass or gravel filled surface depending on the application required.
TYPAVE 25 by Typar is a new US manufactured porous paver made from recycled plastic material to meet LEED credits. The plastic paver is engineered to provide a reinforced surface for H25 loading while allowing for the beatification of a grass surface.
TYPAVE 25 paver's structure is constructed with Quick-Snap integral joints between sections creating a strong monolithic structure that can be staked into the ground removing the chance for shear or slip.
The shipping mechanism was designed into this product fitting perfectly on a 48 x 48 pallet with double stacking to make the most efficient shipping reducing both the cost and carbon foot print . Once installed the porous plastic paver performs the reinforcing structure for fire access lanes, drive lanes and parking lots while keeping the aesthetics of grass. With the open cell structure, TYPAVE creates a permeable reinforced surface suitable for traffic while allowing water to permeate into the sub-soil beneath.
Separation, Stabilization, Filtration, Drainage, Erosion Control
TYPAR® geotextiles create a layer of separation that develops a graded aggregate filter layer in the subgrade soil to maintain separation and eliminate the risk of soil mixing or 'pumping''. TYPAR promotes development of such filter layers due to its unique bonded fibers that create a pathway resembling a well-graded aggregate filter. TYPAR provides an effective filter structure since it has both high permeability, which will not change under compaction, and the ability to retain soil particles adjacent to it, minimizing the piping of subgrade soils and reducing fine particles from crossing the filtration layer.
Filtration / Drainage, Separation, Stabilization, Erosion Control

TYPAR Geocomposites are value engineered to address specific applications, utilizing the optimal features of a variety of geonets, membranes and geotextiles.
Filtration / Drainage, Separation
TYPAR Geocomposite drains are made by bonding membranes, nets and geotextiles in a variety of combinations to create alternatives to conventional solutions. The membrane layers provides a barrier function that prevents the passage of mosts gases and liquids. Nets collect gases and liqueds that are passed to convention poionts and the geotextiles allow gases and liquest pass to the net core whithout allowing soil particles to clog the core.
Filtration / Drainage, Separation
TYPAR Frost Blanket is a built-for-purpose geocomposite that mitigates the effects of frost heave. TYPAR Frost Blanket reduces potential damage due to the frost heave by creating a capillary break the prevents the rise of groundwater.
Filtration / Drainage, Separation
TYPAR Salt Barrier geocomposite was developed to preserve the viability of the upper layers of soil for use in landscaping and planting projects. Traditionally, in regions with saline groundwater, a 12 inch layer of crushed stone is requred to intercept the capillary rise of saline groundwaters.
TYPAR Salt Barrier replaces the layer of crushed stone, reducing the need to deplete primary resources and high transportation costs.

Sandbags are often used in flood fighting, but TYPAR® GeoCells have a number of advantages over them. Filling sandbags is labor-intensive and, because workers tire, devastating choices often must be made as to which areas to protect. TYPAR® GeoCells require much less labor than filling and stacking sandbags because earthmoving machinery can fill the cells with sand rapidly. In addition, TYPAR® GeoCells are built as a vertical wall, while sandbags must be stacked in a pyramidal fashion, with a much larger footprint and more sand required.
TYPAR Geocell is an all-textile cellular containment system used to build structures from sand, earth and other local materials. When filled with earth and sand, a TYPAR Geocell wall contains no metal or plastic parts, making it ideal for use by gun clubs for firing range walls where ricochet hazards need to be reduced or eliminated.
Stabilization, Erosion Control, Filtration / Drainage
The heavy-duty geotextile fabric construction of a TYPAR® GeoCells unit adapts to the terrain while offering excellent structural strength and durability. In fact, the easy-to-construct cellular confinement system is well suited for irregular terrain, such as slopes, to reduce erosion and promote vegetation. Mulch or fill from the site can be used. Water filters through while fill material and soil particles are retained by the geotextile. If erosion or sediment control ceases to be a problem, TYPAR® GeoCells can be emptied and used again.
Protection, Erosion Control, Filtration / Drainage
The growing demand for domestic fuel production has led to increased activities in fracking and clean coal production resulting in more stringent regulation on slurry and wastewater byproducts to protect against spills and contamination. TYPAR GeoCells offer a proven secondary confinement solution to create higher containment walls that reduce the overall footprint of the containment site, while employing the option of recycling local fill material. Reducing the site''s footprint is essential in mining areas with elevation changes and topographic relief to minimize cost and environmental impacts. Utilizing our cellular confinement technology can dramatically reduce the cut and fill needed to level the site, and improve the project return on investment. Proven through the Army Corp of Engineers Environmental Research and Development Center and military applications, TYPAR GeoCells can be trusted to contain 100% of waste materials during a catastrophic failure of the primary tank.
The DefenCell barrier system provides personnel and infrastructure protection in Military, Security and Environmental applications.
