About EcoGrid Limited

EcoGrid Limited are the sole suppliers of the World leading ECORASTER range of products to the United Kingdom and Irish market which we market as EcoGrid. EcoGrid is the superior paving grid being the first product of its kind in the market and has been sold around the World for over 25 years.  It is made from specially selected recycled plastics, recycled under strict controls at the production centre in the Bavarian countryside.  We can assist with ground stablisation and reinforcement, mud control, parking, access routes and pathways, construction sites, disabled access, landscaping and tree root protection.

 

Our company is based in the North West in Wallasey near to the banks of the River Mersey and with healthy stocks of product we are able to service the whole of the UK and Ireland. Deliveries can even be made on a next day service for urgent projects.

EcoGrid is supplied to a wide range of construction and landscaping companies, merchants and the general public amongst others.  We provide a quality of products and services second to none on pre, during and post sales. Our experienced and knowledgeable team have a hard working ethic and will help however we can.

 

  • Our Technical experts are on hand to offer guidance and advice to ensure a swift and hassle-free installation. EcoGrid products are fully tested, approved and guaranteed to be the best available in the market since 1994.

 

  • EcoGrid has a variety of types that cover loads ranging from pedestrian, Equine and cars through to heavy weight HGV applications.

 

  • EcoGrid feature a patented locking system so once down are firm and secure helping to spread the load to avoid lift or become unstable.

 

  • They are made from recycled low density polyethylene (LDPE) which is very robust and is not brittle like some budget brands. It contains carbon for UV stability. This is why we are confident to offer a “no quibble” 20 year guarantee for our grids.

 

  • EcoGrid is offered in black, terracotta and green (particularly suitable for grass infill projects). As permeable products they can be incorporated into SUDS compliant schemes and have a great environmental profile.  

 

  • The standard grids are 33 x 33 cm’s but are supplied in layers of 12 tiles (1 x 1.33m). This means that they are quick and efficient to install but also cost effective by avoiding waste where a full layer is not needed meaning minimal cuts.  For large commercial carparks and as a base for resin we have developed a large tile known as E40XXL which is 1 x 1.33m in size. A recent development is the Bloxx system with plastic tiles carrying inserts such as concrete or granite.

 

  • EcoGrid is fully and independently tested for its load bearing capacities and specifications and certification are freely available. With the weight and wall thickness of our products you can be assured of a great solution for your project needs.

 

In short, EcoGrid/Ecoraster is the original product in this field with a fantastic reputation for quality.  With over 15 million grids sold worldwide every year it is a tried and trusted solution. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements in more detail as EcoGrid can offer a complete package.
