The latest EcoGrid case study takes us to France… and trampolining!
A garden area was recently transformed with the goal to turn this slippery clay area (below) into a robust surface capable of withstanding garden parties complete with a child’s pool and even a trampoline.
Sounds like a job for our EcoGrid Bloxx solution – a porous paving grid combined with permeable paving blocks which provides a nice blocked finish with amazing drainage. The bonus is how quick and easy it is to install.
In this blog’s photos you can see the process that went into that easy installation, which by the way required no heavy equipment to complete. First up, excavation and a split of rubber and gravel on to a fleece membrane.
The Bloxx went down and was filled with matching material.
An area of 100m² can be fitted by two people in just an hour. This unrivalled porous block paving system will allow this garden area in picturesque Strasbourg to have a point loading of 40 tonnes and can also be used in conjunction with other EcoGrid products for design variations if desired.
Just some of the benefits…
- Cement-free laying
- Proven safety locking system
- UV stable
- Resistant to aggressive liquids
- Fully permeable – no underground drainage required
- Environmentally friendly/neutral
- Made from 100% recycled materials
- Quick to install
- Full tested and approved (OECD 202:2004)
The results really do speak for themselves…
Oh, and here’s what you really wanted to see; the trampoline….
