We specify products that have been tried and tested to support the Ecogrid range in a cost-effective manner from our stock.

EcoGrid approved Fleece Membrane

The most common of our non-woven geotextile membranes. It is designed for filtration and separation applications, such as:

  • equestrian; horse arenas, paddocks etc
  • road construction
  • french drains, trench lining
  • preventative measure against weeds
  • soakaway and attenuation tank wrapping
  • driveways

With a high puncture resistency and a good permeability rate, this range of membranes are the only ones that we can recommend for EcoGrid installations

All EcoGrid approved products are thermally bonded to provide a durable, tough fabric which has proven to be one of the highest quality general purpose membranes on the market.

As well as the standard 80gsm, we offer up to 1000gsm and every specification in-between, with varying roll sizes and thickness. At EcoGrid our geotextile membranes can be made to order so if you have a certain requirement just let us know.

EcoGrid Ltd are unique in offering cut rolls at 2.25 x 100m, 1.125 x 100m, 2.25 x 20m or 2.25 x 10m to meet client requirements.

If you have any queries either call us on 0151 639 4281 or email sales@ecogrid.co.uk, for quantity orders, specialist products or technical advice.

EcoGrid Hi-Vis contamination Membrane

Our Hi-Vis Geotextile is a Non-Woven Membrane used for separating contaminated and uncontaminated soils. The orange geotextile has a dual effect:

  • Its vivid colour warns of potential danger at the point of any future excavations,
  • and it can also prevent the upward movement of contaminated soil particles.

Key Benefits

  • highly visible separator
  • prevents intermixing of adjacent mineral layers
  • quick and easy to install
  • supplied in 4.5 x 100m rolls for rapid coverage
  • available in a number of strengths to suit site requirements

EcoGrid Securagrid

Ecogrid Securagrid is a laid biaxial geogrid manufactured of extruded monolithic flat structured bars with welded rigid junctions.

Ecogrid Securagrids are geogrids with square shaped apertures. The tensile strength in machine and cross machine direction is usually identical (in the same range).

We supply :

20:20

30:30

40:40

50:50

60:60. These figures refer to the ‘gap’ in between the bars. Namely 30:30 would be 30mm in one direction and 30mm in the other.

20/20 is a reference to the tensile strength (kN/m) in machine and cross machine direction as a 95% confidence value.

Ecogrid Securagrid Geogrids can solve pavement problems by providing omni-axial reinforcement to granular sub-bases, capping layers and railway ballasts in areas of weak or variable soils.

When granular particles are compacted over these grids, they partially penetrate and project through the apertures to create a strong and positive interlock. The load dispersal effect from the interlocking mechanism increases shearing resistance within the soil, improving compaction and allowing the sub-base thickness to be decreased, ultimately reducing construction time and costs.

Ecogrid Securagrid Geogrids can be employed in single or multiple layers. The tough platform created provides tremendous load dispersal, allowing previously weak soils to be reclaimed for development (e.g. foundations, motorways, railways, airport runways). Biaxial geogrids are available in standard and large aperture sizes to suit any fill material.

We guarantee to beat any like for like quotation. Trade enquiries are welcome.

EcoGrid Webcell 75 to 200

The EcoGrid Webcell significantly improves the performance of confining and stabilising a drainage layer of stone by virtue of the system’s high strength network of inter-connecting cells.

This three dimensional system is an economic and effective solution to challenging soil stability problems in load support, slope, channel, shoreline protection, vegetative retention and all wall/earth retaining applications.

• Reduces excavation depth
• Prevents subsoil compaction
• Prevents oxygen & nutrient depletion
• It’s environmentally friendly
• It’s easy and cost-effective to install

Perfect for tree root protection

The EcoGrid Webcell grid comes in depths between 75mm and 200mm options of 31 square metre sections, pinned in place with our ‘J’ pins. Our EcoGrid approved geotextile membrane is laid over the top in addition to a bedding for the load bearing EcoGrid tiles, whether they’re S50 grids for light/medium traffic or E50 for heavy duty traffic.

An ideal partner for use with the EcoGrid matrix system and tree root protection, the Web Cell provides a flexible and permeable solution for protecting tree roots while creating a strong stable surface for traffic too.

Its patented design and cellular structure reduces the vertical load pressure on tree roots and prevents damage. With no-dig solutions preferred in this field, our new product is ideal since only the surface vegetation has to be removed – that means there’s no disruption to the roots while installation time and money is saved.

Using EcoGrid Webcell for tree root protection gives you all of these benefits and more:
