Rubway Multisport Flow


porozusThe porous wear layer allows water penetration through the base layer, – which also contains stone – directly to the ground layer, adapting the proven way of nature for handling rising drainage issues.


liter_mmThe drainage rate of Rubway Multisport Flow is more than 200 liters per minute by square centimeters, meaning that by this extremely high speed of water evacuation it is able to handle even the most intense rainfall ever recorded in history.*

ateresztoThe surface dries rapidly, no puddles formed, also the humidity from the soil can evaporate through the porous wear layer in reverse direction.

Rubway Multisport Flow vs. cycleways with tarmac wear layer


Tulajdonságok Rubway Multisport Flow Aszfalt
Relevant features
Travel comfort – new installation− even, flat surface
− flawless rolling experience
− even, flat surface
− flawless rolling experience
Handling subbase layer moves or deformation− no cracks or brakes
− the flexible wearing course can overcome the sub surface movements to a high extent
− trip hazards
− separation, potholes apply
When the first problems occur on the surface layer?− as result of vandalism or inappropriate use− cca in the 3rd year
Expected deformation of the surface− burn
− erosion by certain rare compounds
− cracks, breaks
− settles
− develops potholes or blisters
The nature of the connection between the road and the curb− seamless seal
− gap by material shrinkage is not expected
− seamless seal
− material shrinkage is likely to cause a gap
Permeability− 100%− close to 0%
Stormwater drainage− directly to ground layer− stormwater directed to public drain system through the built-in drainage
Recycled material content− 40-50%
− recycled scrap tires in granules
− max 20% - only when applying advanced tarmac recycling technology
Need and effect of maintenance
The complexity of maintenance− low complexity
− can be executed manually by 1 person
− moderate complexity
− machine-made maintenance is required in every case
The surface after repair− contiguous surface− the surface remains patchy
Travel comfort on repaired surface− the spot of reparation is barely noticed
− same like new
− the spot of reparation is significantly noticed
Safety hazard on repaired surface− no trip hazard− the remaining mark of the maintenance generates moderate trip hazard
