Initial Installation of Flexi®-Pave for Infrastructure Improvements Deemed A Huge Success
CLEARWATER, FL / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2020 / Atlantic Wind & Solar Inc. (OTC PINK:AWSL) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary, KB Industries was awarded a new Federal contract by the National Parks Authority to expand the use of Flexi®-Pave, KBI’s proprietary flexible porous pavement solution throughout areas of Yellowstone National Park.
In 2015, following a long and rigorous vetting process to determine the effectiveness of KBI’s Flexi®-Pave, The Yellowstone Foundation awarded KBI an initial contract to supply and install tens of thousands of sq. ft. of porous and flexible pavement utilizing crumb rubber from recycled tires within the Park.
With Yellowstone being in an area prone to severe freeze/thaw cycles combined with high UV indices and significant foot traffic from visitors creates a perfect storm of stresses on conventional asphalt pathways. These stresses then lead to asphalt cracking and eventually breaking off which over time, the broken pieces can migrate into the geysers. After Flexi®-Pave was installed in 2015 and again in 2016, 2017 and 2018, it became clear that the porous and flexible surface eliminated the undesirable cracking and subsequent fracturing and breaking off of asphalt pieces from the park pathways.
An added benefit of KBI’s Flexi®-Pave is that the pathways are perceived by park visitors to be more comfortable to walk on than traditional asphalt or concrete due to the slight “give” created by the addition of the crumb rubber to the proprietary mix of ingredients.
The contract recently awarded to KB Industries by the first national park established in the US, is further protecting the heritage of Yellowstone using KB Industries’ environmentally friendly infrastructure solution.
