Here, we have a typical example of a grassed parking system, the layer build up would be as follows:
Grid filled with 70:30 soil and sharp sand mix and seeded with low maintenance seed or wildflower mix
50mm rootzone of 50:50 stone and soil compacted
Geotextile membrane (100-115g typically)
150mm drainage layer (clean stone or type 3 reduced fines
A Grassed parking system employs the use of Ecogrid in three different guises:
The surfacing can be used for all areas that either require a load bearing, aesthetic and very permeable surface for loadings. This method is particularly favoured when planners require a truly ’green’ access route or parking area.
Once the surface has been excavated and prepared, the grids are swiftly laid on the rootzone level, curves are formed with our unique curving piece. Fill is as your required finish.
We offer an Ecogrid Bloxx tile that firmly clips to this system, giving a 330mm or 660mm onwards hard standing to delineate bays or provide a hard wearing a pathway across grass parking system
We supply a two types of bay marker. One raised above levels and one flush. All of our markers are UV stable and feature a very secure method of fixing then to the underside of the grids.
We have an angled grid that allows a continuous flow of grids to retain grassed surfacing from the horizontal to the vertical plane.
We also have a unique curving piece to ensure continuous curving of grid based surfaces without the need for cutting. We have a variety of UV stable markers to delineate parking bays and new for 2015 will be a clip and fix LED lighting marker in four different colours.
With a high profile to support healthy turf growth EcoGrid S50 is more than capable of withstanding the pressures of a domestic driveway.
With a loading capacity of up to 800 tonnes per square meter when filled, EcoGrid E50 is a heavy hitter that can handle industrial pressure. Whether you have a parking bay for cargo transport or an aircraft landing strip E50 is the grid for the job.
With a loading capacity of 800 tonnes per square metre and a range of styling choices EcoGrid Bloxx suites any load bearing application
