Spotlight: Trailflex Vivid
With the recent launch of Trailflex Vivid, enhanced colour variation offers colourful alternatives to tarmac whilst still providing a great porosity rate. We’ve put the ‘spotlight’ on three of the eight new colours now available.
Left to right, Neptune, Sunspot and Mars
An expressive yet discreet contemporary paving surface that looks great with a modern build. This calm colour suits any project, be it a driveway, path patio or commercial project. Neptune provides a sleek and sophisticated finish.
A warm, bright and striking colour. Perfect for an outdoor space, giving off a highly decorative finish with tones of gold, yellow and dark brown. Eye-catching and distinctive, Sunspot transforms and brightens up any space.
A vibrant, bold and characteristic finish that looks like it has come straight from the red planet. Take your surface to new dimensions and transform your space! This truly unique finish is perfect for that added element or design feature.

Types of SuDS
Permeable paving is a type system that allows for infiltration of rainwater across the entire surface. Permeable Paving not only reduces surface runoff but also reduces the need of deep excavations. However, some systems such as permeable tarmac will inevitably clog and become impervious over time. They can also become damaged due to frost; as the water expands when freezing, the surface will crack. The only systems which are tested for freeze-thaw safety and carry a ten year no clog guarantee are the Sudstech and Trailflex systems from Langford Direct.
Swales are shallow, wide and vegetated ditches designed to store and convey runoff. They are extremely low cost and aid in the removal of urban pollutants. The downside to Swales is that they are not suitable for steep areas or areas with roadside parking. They also limit the opportunities to use trees in landscaping.
Infiltration Trenches are shallow excavations filled with stone that offer temporary subsurface storage of storm water runoff holding water until it seeps through to the water table. Although they can significantly reduce runoff rates, they are at high risk of clogging.
