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.

ECOGRID® offers you every opportunity to turn your dreams into reality. Once laid, ECOGRID® offers an incredible capacity for high loads combined with a harmonious appearance. It’s easy to create a natural impression with ECOGRID®. It blends perfectly with natural surroundings with the added bonus of high durability. We’ve also come up with a solution for those who can’t wait for their grass seeds to green in the ECOGRID® cells: ECOGREEN®! – specially filled and pre-sown ECOGRID® elements have been specially designed to provide you with instant lush “green” directly after laying using various different plants, yet offering the same degree of high load capacity! Nowadays, essential hydraulic measures are used – with the help of ECOGRID® – to restore straightened and dammed watercourses to their natural condition, reintegrating them harmoniously into the landscape. ECOGRID® also promotes the vital task of water regulation in areas where the risk of flooding needs to be reduced.
Surfaces are prepared and levelled. The grids come pre-locked in sheets or rows of twelve. The system easily and securely clips together to form a complete load bearing reinforcement system.
You decide how you want to use ECOGRID® – the possibilities are practically endless. Whether for equestrian sports or golf, in garden design, landscaping or road construction, for roof gardens and, most recently, even for military purposes. You’ll find a use for ECOGRID® almost anywhere. Thanks to its excellent ground-reinforcing properties, e.g., in the case of field hospitals and tented cities in crisis areas, ECOGRID® has even been awarded NATO certification! Thanks to ECOGRID®, major events are now more fun for everyone – even when the heavens open! Open air spaces turning into quagmires are now finally a thing of the past. The ECOGRID® cells allow excess water to drain away quickly and effectively prevent the sub-surface from softening and becoming muddy.
