Premier Hydropavers® are a fully permeable paver designed to imitate the way natural land absorbs water by allowing up to 25 mm per minute to go through its entirely permeable body. Hydropavers can absorb ample amounts of stormwater in order to keep the hardscapes free of water accumulation, eliminate runoff and provide wide range environmental advantages and health benefits.


Premier Hydropavers® are made from crushed recycled ceramic tiles and pressed into moulds at 1,600 tonnes and fired at 1,200°C. Heating the material to below its melting point forms strong bonds between the individual grains and creating voids that allow water to go through its entire body whilst offering a breaking point of up to 20 kN, effectively allowing it to be used in the most demanding conditions.

What makes Premier Hydropavers® unique is that they are 100% permeable across its surface, which significantly increases the amount of stormwater it can manage. The benefits of this solution include;

  • Very high level of permeability: Premier Hydropavers®are 100% permeable across their surface. The initial 5mm of rain is absorbed within the paver and returned to the atmosphere via evapotranspiration and the additional rainfall permeates through the Premier Hydropavers® at the rate of 25mm/minute.
  • Lifetime sustainability: Premier Hydropavers® are manufactured entirely from recycled ceramic material and require zero raw material extraction. 
  • Easy maintenance: Premier Hydropavers®require the same maintenance regime as any other paved area. They can easily be swept or cleaned by domestic pressure wash and there is no joint clogging. The patented structure allows the pavers to keep their permeability with minimal attention.
  • Strength: Premier Hydropavers®have compressive strength >50 MPa while breaking load strength for 300x300x55 pavers is 20kN and 10kN for 200x100xx55 pavers. Premier Hydropavers® are available in a variety of attractive colours and sizes, including tactile pavers to regulation standard. Being a ceramic product that has been fired at 1200°C, Premier Hydropavers®
  • Transferable Lifetime Warranty: Hydropavers Interlockers™ have distinct Lifetime Warranties on the structural integrity of the pavers. It covers any structural deterioration or damage of the concrete unit resulting from regular usage. The warranty is attached to individual paver rather than the owners, ensuring a risk-free coverage under any circumstances.
