Brock International, the developer and supplier of PaverBase®, a unique paver underlayment system used beneath patios, walkways and other pedestrian applications, has been notified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that it will receive yet another patent on its innovative concept of a rigid panel for use under pavers. Brock anticipates that its latest patent will issue within the next six weeks. The company is the leading supplier of safety and drainage layers used underneath pavers, synthetic turf fields and playgrounds worldwide, and has received numerous patents for its innovative products.

“In allowing Brock’s patent application, the Patent Office has recognized the novelty and usefulness of our PaverBase design that provides a durable and stable paver underlayment surface and improved water drainage," noted Dan Sawyer, Founder and CEO of Brock International. "The design is easy to install, which benefits the industry as a whole by making the construction of outdoor residential living spaces practical for more people. When issued, the patent will give Brock a distinct competitive advantage by preventing the unauthorized use of its patented design.”

Brock’s comprehensive patent program keeps the market informed about PaverBase® system patent rights, which prohibit the unauthorized manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale and importation of the company’s patented inventions. Used to lay pavers in pedestrian areas, Brock PaverBase® speeds construction, makes the site easier to work in, and gives the homeowner the patio of their dreams in less time. The overlapping panel system is made from Polypropylene, an environmental material known for its durability, resilience, and thermal insulation qualities. PaverBase® replaces much of the traditional base used under pavers. Specially engineered for patios and walkways and other pedestrian applications, it is the only product of its kind to receive the prized Cradle to Cradle Certification CM for its outstanding commitment to sustainability.
