Why Choose Sudstech?

Why choose Sudstech?

Porous resin bound surfacing is traditionally laid onto a base of concrete or tarmac which can develop faults over time such as delamination, clogging and weed growth. The Patented Sudstech system prevents these issues by using a recycled rubber sub base. Small fines that support weed growth usually build up over time affecting porosity, however, due to the slight flexibility in our rubber sub base fines are agitated through the product when trafficked by vehicle or foot, never being allowed to settle in any one area.

Traditional porous paving that utilises either concrete or tarmac bases can be subject to delamination. Delamination is the process of water freezing in between a permeable and impermeable surface causing the two layers to split. The Sudstech system’s rubber sub base accommodates for expansion and contraction allowing water to freeze and thaw within its voids eliminating delamination.

Sudstech has been rigorously tested and researched by various leading universities, environmental groups and research establishments.

Sudstech – Typical ground work specification

  • 50mm – Sudstech Permeable Paving System
  • 200mm – Prepared base (type 3 aggregate)


SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage solution) is new legislation brought into action alongside the Water Management Act 2010. It is a legal requirement in planning to prevent surface water run off and the severe environmental impacts it causes.


In addition to SUDS compliance Sudstech’s rubber sub base safely utilises 3 car tyres on average for every square metre laid, reducing environmental impact by exploiting otherwise unusable and potentially harmful materials.


Rapid water run off from hard paving has severe environmental impacts. These include downstream flooding, the transfer of pollutants into watercourses and depletion of ground water levels.


Sudstech’s unique solution overcomes these problems by allowing drainage infiltration on site. This is the preferred water dispersal option of the Environment Agency and the focus of the SUDS legislation.
