Practicality has never been so pleasing on the eye. Designed to comply with stringent legislation regarding driveways at the front of homes, Woburn Rumbled Infilta is a permeable solution that allows rainwater to filter down to the sub-base below - where it can be stored for a short period of time to allow it to soak into the ground naturally, discharged in a controlled manner to a surface water drainage system or connected to a rainwater harvesting system for collection and re-use. And all of this while the cobble look and rumbled finish lend an attractive traditional feel to your drive.
This is one solution to comply with the new legislation for front of homes. Infilta must be laid using permeable aggregates.
Each 100 x 134 x 50 pack contains 624 units and covers 8.32m2.
Deliveries normally occur between 7am and 6pm. Once your order has been placed you will be contacted and provided with an exact date of delivery.
This vehicle will lower the product to the ground using an electric lift. The pallet of products is then pulled off using a manual pallet truck. It is imperative that the ground that the pallet is unloaded onto is flat and solid. Access may be needed for a rigid lorry (up to 20ft) otherwise additional delivery charges may be made. For larger orders alternative delivery methods can be arranged. Please call our office to discuss any delivery requirements or for clarification.
Our customer services team will advise how to prepare for receipt of ordered goods. Our delivery team are not responsible for any additional lifting or carrying of your goods.
We do not deliver items to multiple addresses.
All full packs and all orders containing at least one full pack will be delivered free of charge*.

The sub-base should have enough space to store the water for a short period of time to allow it to soak into the ground naturally, discharge in a controlled manner to a surface water drainage system or connect to a rainwater harvesting system to collect the water for re-use.
Conventional MOT Type 1 is not used for the sub-base as it is not free draining, the open graded Bradstone 20mm Drainage Aggregate is used instead.
In free draining applications, a suitable geotextile should be placed at formation level (overlapping joints by 300mm), below the 20mm Drainage Aggregate sub-base. When the sub-base is designed to hold water an impermeable membrane lining should be used.
The depth of the sub-base will be governed by the strength and type of the underlying ground, but typically you will need to be around 200mm deep on soils of good strength and 500mm in areas of poor soil strength.
It is best to prevent vehicles running on the sub-base during construction if possible, as they will cause rutting in the loose surface. The blocks are restrained in the conventional way with a kerb or edging and provide more than adequate support to traffic.
The laying course uses Bradstone Bedding Aggregate, a 6mm angular, open graded material.
Unlike normal bedding sand, it is free draining and therefore it does not require any control on moisture content.
The laying course should be 50mm thick, rather than 30mm for conventional paving and it is not compacted before the blocks are laid. Once laid, and prior to jointing, a light pass over with a whacker plate with a rubber mat is required.
The preparation and levelling of the bedding surface is critical as an aggregate bedding layer will not be compacted as with conventional block paving.
Bradstone Infilta blocks have a nominal joint width of 5mm which is greater than a normal block paving. Therefore, the Bradstone 3mm Jointing Aggregate should be used for joint filling.
Brush in and after ensuring there is not loose aggregate on the surface that could mark the blocks, another pass with the whacker is required. Finally, brush in more aggregate to fill voids as required.
