Flexi®-Pave after 8 Feet of Storm Surge

Alison Giesen, Director of Culture, Parks, and Recreation in the Town of Fort Myers Beach stated that "the Flexi®-Pave was not affected in the slightest even with having over eight feet of sea water on it! Much of the property experienced serious damage except for the KBI's Flexi®-Pave sidewalks".

About the Installation

With the sidewalks being Flexi®-Pave andhaving a porosity rate of 3000 gallons per square foot per hour. The Flexi®-Pave showed an immense capability to release "trapped water forces" underneath the Flexi®-Pave that were trying to escape as the storm surge receded. These forces usually displace and crack traditional concrete and asphalt paving, thus clearly demonstrating K.B. Industries Inc`s "Next Generation of Paving" alternatives to storm water engineers when proactively planning coastal urbanized Infrastructure against hurricane forces.

Kevin Bagnall CEO, AWSL stated…" This installation of Flexi®-Pave at Mound House most certainly illustrates the beneficial return of investment and long-term savings for our clients. Their original interest was based of the many benefits of Flexi®-Pave including the Slip Resistance and Non-cracking features offered by the installation of Flexi®-Pave"
