TAMPA BAY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 1, 2023 / Atlantic Power & Infrastructure Corp's proprietary technology Flexi®-Pave has once again proven its prowess in the international arena, completing two phases of installations at Homesteads - Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall in Northern England. The famed ‘Hadrian's Wall' site, dating back to AD 124, attracts thousands of tourists annually, and now, thanks to Flexi®-Pave, visitors can experience this historical marvel on state-of-the-art footpaths.
KBI UK Ltd., a subsidiary of Atlantic Power & Infrastructure Corp., installed a total of 207 square meters of Flexi®-Pave footpaths, utilizing 662 recycled car tires. This environmentally conscious approach not only transformed the site but also prevented the release of 14,573 kg of Carbon Dioxide, contributing significantly to our environmental conservation efforts.
Kevin Sellwood, KBI's Sales Manager for the North of England, expressed his pride in the project, stating, "The installation of Flexi®-Pave at Hadrian's Wall is a testament to our technology's quality. Previously, the site had limited accessibility due to paths made from compacted dust. Flexi®-Pave provided an ideal solution by being installed directly on the existing surface, enhancing accessibility for all visitors. I am confident this landmark installation will pave the way for many more at World Heritage sites globally."
Flexi®-Pave's unique characteristics, including permeability, flexibility, crack resistance, and slip resistance, make it an ideal choice for historically significant sites. The material's installation at Hadrian's Wall was accomplished efficiently by KBI UK Ltd., ensuring minimal disruption to visitors' experiences.
Andrew Matches of the English Heritage committee expressed satisfaction with Flexi®-Pave, stating, "Working on sites of historic national importance, such as Hadrian's Wall, demands solutions that are environmentally friendly and non-disruptive. Flexi®-Pave not only met but exceeded our expectations, providing a level surface while preserving the site's integrity. We commend KBI UK Ltd. for their professionalism and support throughout the process."
