Selects KB Industries for 50K Sq Ft Trail Improvements Using Recycled Tires
CLEARWATER, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2020 / Atlantic Wind and Solar (OTC PINK:AWSL) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, KB Industries recently completed a contract to perform beneficial maintenance and upgrades to 50K sq ft. of exercise trails at the Shotgun Road Linear Park in Sunrise, FL. This state-of-the-art pathway was installed in 2016 by KB Industries using its patented Flexi®-Pave surface that utilizes crumb rubber from recycled tires. Flexi-Pave was selected as the pathway surface of choice because it provides an extremely durable yet permeable surface that due to the crumb rubber composition, provides a significantly safer and more pleasant walking and running surface for all ages.
An increasing number of municipalities and counties are recognizing the health benefit of installing Flexi-Pave pathways, walking trails, and running tracks. Dr. Viveca Wallqvist from the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden stated in an April 6, 2020 article in SciTechDaily “Thousands of lives could be saved by this pavement surface, both in the UK and other countries…. because people are less likely to break their hip and die if they fall on this surface and would also be more likely to go out and do healthy activities like walking and cycling if they no longer have to worry about the risk of a fall.”
The Sunrise trail project is just one of many other similar projects that KB Industries has recently completed with Flexi-Pave, including:
- Broadway Path in Cambridge, MA
- Norris Dam State Park in Norris, TN
- Glady’s Porter Zoo in Brownsville, TX
Kevin Bagnall, Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Wind and Solar stated “KB Industries is seeing increased interest by counties and municipalities that are looking for sustainable solutions such as Flexi-Pave. We not only solve the issue of what to do with old tires, but then also incorporate the recycled tires into a sustainable surface that is durable enough to be driven on, allows water to percolate through which reduces net water management costs, and is safer for residents and tourists to walk and jog on.”
