Traction on permeable pavers

We're working with a driveway that's been recently done with Permeable Pavers. The homeowner is asking us what they can do for traction. I know sand is out of the question. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make it less of an icey death trap? We're in Maine.

You can seal the pavers with grit mixed in the sealer - the grit can be a fine silica sand or tiny poly granules. Unilock pavers carries Techniseal Sure Foot Anti-Slip Grit that can be added to the sealer. Check with your paver supplier, Unilock dealer, or Lowe's/Menards for their recommendations. It is kind of defeating the purpose if you have installed permeable pavers to seal them but it is what it is now that they are installed. Many pavers can be slick when wet or when there is a coating of ice on them. Unilock offers a permeable paver with the IL Campo finish that has a similar texture to broom finished concrete if you are looking for a more textured paver for future projects.
