Summary: Invisible Structures, I wanted to let you know that we recently installed some Grasspave2 for a project at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath, Falls Oregon. The Fire Marshall was quite reluctant to accept the idea that his aerial apparatus vehicle would be driving on turf. He requested a field test before his final approval and I’ve attached photos from that successful day. There was a genuine look of disbelief on the faces of the firefighters as they hopped off the truck and looked down at the wheels resting (but not indenting) the turf.
Firefighters look on in disbelief as Grasspave2 porous paving supports the weight of the fire truck.
