Sub-base designs

To mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of Priora, Marshalls created 9 sub-base design models surpassing the 6 designs currently available through the British Standard.

The new designs minimise the amount of imported aggregates that are used as well as the volume of waste off-site, consequently reducing both cost and environmental impact. They are suitable for all applications from light to heavily trafficked, with a “Ports and Docks” design specifically for applications with static loads.

  • 9 rationalised sub-base models
  • Light to heavily trafficked applications catered for
  • Less imported aggregates required
  • Reduce off-site waste volume
  • Free technical support and advice

Interlocking nib design

Priora blocks have a patented interlocking nib design which creates voids. The voids allow surface water to pass through at a rate of up to 18,750 litres/second/hectare. The water is stored in a specially designed sub-base before being released from the system at a controlled rate.

Each Priora block is manufactured with 6 nibs, each with 8 different faces that interlock in 3 separate directions. The combination of the interlocking faces and angles maximises rotational interlock between blocks and reduces pressure on the laying course by up to 40%.

Marshalls' Priora is the only permeable paving block on the market to demonstrate full rotational interlock through full scale testing.

  • Patented interlocking nib design
  • Reduces pressure on the laying course by up to 40%
  • Flow rate of up to 18,750 litres/second/hectare

Technical support

The new designs enable Marshalls’ fully qualified design team to be even more precise in their advice for individual applications.
