What is it?
ECOGRID® meets all the requirements of an environmentally compatible ground reinforcement system, without sealing the soil. The recycled and durable tiles made of pure polyethylene are also absolutely environmentally neutral. With an area of 1.33 m² per module and a low net weight, laying couldn’t be easier. If necessary, several thousand square metres of ground reinforcement can be laid in just one day. As soon as the patented connection system clicks into place, a single uninterrupted flat surface is created – piece by piece. The load spreading design reliably prevents the edges of individual tiles from protruding and prevents hollows or even subsidence from occurring.
EcoGrid prevents erosion by:
Reinforcing the ground and preventing the excessive migration of fill materials;
Providing a permeable surface to assist in ground water absorption, thus decreasing water runoff.
In its prevention of erosion, EcoGrid provides stability and safety, while improving an area’s aesthetics and reducing maintenance cost.
Often we get scenarios where excavation is not possible or is minimal such as sites of archaeological value or in areas where tree roots need protecting. Here the issue is that the sub-base needs to be as thin as possible whilst still retaining surface loading. Often here, we advise laying of a geotextile layer first, then a layer of (for example) 100mm clean 20mm stone retained by our Ecogrid Cell Web, a secondary geotextile layer is then laid and then the Ecogrid standard grids or Ecogrid Bloxx is laid.
