TAMPA BAY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2022 / Atlantic Power, and Infrastructure Corp. (OTC PINK:AWSL) is currently installing more of its Flexi®-Pave as tree surrounds in the City of Tampa. For over 10 years the city has been ordering and installing KBI's Flexi®-Pave to benefit the city, residents and visitors.
Kevin Bagnall the Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Power, and Infrastructure Corp., founder of KB Industries and developer of its proprietary Flexi®-Pave technology stated, "Once our Flexi®-Pave is installed in any location, we witness repeat orders year after year. Some examples are Key West, Florida; Greenville South Carolina; Cambridge, MA; Tallahassee, FL.
to name a few, and now this contract that we are currently fulfilling in Tampa, Florida. Our clients immediately see the multitude of benefits including the reduction of long-term maintenance; the promotion of tree heath; the reduction of trip hazards that often result in liability costs to the community".
City of Tampa representatives stated: "We decided to use KBI Flexi-Pave due to its flexibility after installation. In every instance we were able to eliminate tripping hazards without the need to remove old-growth hardwood trees. We have begun a campaign to repair sidewalks around our city using KBI Flexi-Pave in order to minimize the need to remove/kill trees".
Flexi®-Pave creates an aesthetically pleasing landscape from various stock earth tone colors to blend in with the landscape. Flexi®-Pave is durable, flexible, self-cleaning, and virtually maintenance free. Flexi®-Pave resolves drainage problems, eliminating standing water while providing positive groundwater recharge. This encourages the tree roots to not have to press upwards for moisture, that upward pressure resulting in ugly and dangerous buckled up sidewalks.
The proprietary KBI Flexi®-Pave was developed by K.B. Industries, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlantic Power and Infrastructure Corp.
Flexi®-Pave uses the natural, vulcanized strength of scrap tires, along with KBI's proprietary technology, and converts the "Recycled Tire Granules" into proven, sustainable infrastructure construction products. This massively porous but strong structural material can be used for a variety of infrastructure applications with demonstrated success. Applications include storm water management, water treatment and shoreline protection projects, including ship docks. Flexi®-Pave offers long and short-term permeability, flexibility, crack resistance (even freeze-thaw conditions) trip hazard resistance and slip resistance. Notable locations include; Yellowstone National Park; Arlington National Cemetery; Seaside Park's Band Shell, City of Bridgeport, Connecticut; Red Butte Gardens, Utah; Atlanta Georgia's Iconic Beltline; Kew Botanical Gardens, London England.
