Introducing DriveCon® PlastiRok™, our groundbreaking permeable concrete that incorporates recycled, single use soft plastics. This innovative paving solution is strong, trafficable, and helps keep plastics out of landfills.

Suitable for council footpaths, commercial footpaths, residential footpaths, driveways, and carparks, PlastiRok™ is the eco-friendly choice for your next project.

DriveTec® – The Premium Exposed Aggregate Permeable Paving

Looking for an exposed aggregate look with the benefits of permeable paving? DriveTec® is the answer!
