Porous Paving Grids - BodPave™ 85

Application Function

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 Flexible Porous Paving image

TYPAVE™ 25 Flexible Porous Paving

Ideal Sustainable Solution for Grass and Gravel Surface Applications.

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.

TYPAR Civil Geotextiles image

TYPAR Civil Geotextiles

Application Function
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.

TYPAR Geocell - Flood Control image

TYPAR Geocell - Flood Control

Application Function

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 - Gun Range image

TYPAR Geocell - Gun Range

Application Function

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.
Erosion and Sediment Control Geocells image

Erosion and Sediment Control Geocells

Application Function
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.
TYPAR Geocells - Mining Containment image

TYPAR Geocells - Mining Containment

Application Function
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.

Tubex Tree Shelters image

Tubex Tree Shelters

Tubex Treeshelters are an important tool when attempting to establish difficult to grow tree seedlings on challenging sites. Developed in the United Kingdom in 1979, land managers in over 25 countries around the world are using millions of Tubex treeshelters to protect their valuable tree seedlings. The twin-walled, solid, translucent, tubes provide maximum protection from animal browse damage, wind, chemical sprays and equipment. In addition, the greenhouse environment created by the shelter promotes seedling growth.
Tubex Shrub Shelters image

The Tubex Shrubshelter range is a strong, wider diameter treeshelter, designed to accommodate large and multi-stemmed planting stock. Tubex Shrubshelters will improve survival rates by protecting plants from rabbits, mice and voles. Growth rates may be less rapid than when using narrower diameter treeshelters.
VisPore Tree Mats image

VisPore Tree Mats

Treessentials Company protects more tree seedlings than anyone in the country. After years of experience and several million seedlings we have learned a few important lessons. When you plant a seedling it becomes the most vulnerable root in the area. Your success rate improves exponentially when your trees reach 4 feet in height. Next to protecting your hardwood tree seedling with a Tubex treeshelter, controlling grass competition and providing nutrition to the roots is your best assurance of fast, healthy growth.

Bird Netting image

Bird Netting

The protection of valuable crops from the damage caused by birds has now become a factor in crop management and control. Birds can deplete the crop tonnage dramatically. Bird pecked fruit can lead to oxidation and bacterial infection, which will compromise the quality of the fruit giving rise to volatile acidity in the wine. Bird control can be one of the most critical control factors in grape growing. Netting is the most effective bird control solution in the vineyard today. Netting is lightweight, making handling easier when installing and removing. It allows light and air to filter through so there is little shading during the ripening process. The unrestricted air movement ensures that diseases to the wine canopy do not occur.
