What is it?

A mud management, grass reinforcement or drainage layer for all equestrian applications. Ecogrid will stop horses from ‘churning up’ grassed areas in and around feeding stations, it will create a free draining level to allow mixed surfacing to arenas and maneges

 

Ecogrid free-draining base for riding arenas

For over 20 years the Ecogrid arena system has been improving riding arena footing performance at the highest levels of equestrian sports. The Ecogrid Arena System effectively separates the sub base from the footing layer with many benefits.

Affordable free draining base system for riding arenas of all types

  • Savings in excavation and in sub base material which can in many cases be completed with a     minimal drainage layer
  • Longer riding seasons and allowing riding in conditions which would not be possible without Ecogrid
  • Prevention of sub-base mixing with footing and migration of footing , saving need for topping up
  • Improved riding surface due to the elastic nature of the grid, which means more comfort for the rider and easier on the horse’s joints
  • Thinner and more cost-effective membranes employed
  • Safety to horse and rider due to patented locking system of the Ecogrid grids
  • Quick and easy harrowing down to the grids for professional maintenance
  • Millions of square metres installed worldwide with 20 year quality guarantee

When the weather turns bad the Ecogrid arenas are the best performing most ride-able arenas around

All-weather areas – the ideal surface all year round

Thanks to the open cells of the ECOGRID®, excess water is swiftly drained and their shape and height prevent soil compaction in the tread layer. The space inside the individual cells serves to preserve moisture and thus protects the ground from drying out. Paddocks and open stables are kept free from mud and puddles. Riding arenas may be used as required, even during the more wet seasons.

ECOGRID® ELASTIC promotes natural horse movement. Thanks to its high degree of elasticity and good grip it offers the horse an excellent reliable ground surface. The extreme impact loads from horses’ hooves are especially well absorbed by ECOGRID® ELASTIC S50. Over 200 curved bars/m2 provide more elasticity. Conventional ground grids with straight bars stay rigid when loaded. The elastic bars of ECOGRID® ELASTIC always resume their original shape, are crack-proof and withstand frost (maximum -65°C) as well as extreme heat. In this way, physical movement is rendered more pleasant and the horses become more motivated. By using an appropriate tread layer, you can boost this positive effect further.

Example manege package 20 metres x 40 metre.


2 rolls of NW8 105 g fleece membrane: This layer goes on top of the free draining hard-core layer. Fleece membrane or needle punched membrane is used as it doesn't have e tendency to lift above the top layers.

800m2 Ecogrid S50 or E40: This sits on the fleece layer and is generally filled with free draining sand. Provides a good cushioned surface. A further topping of shredded rubber,sand etc or your tread layer of choice is placed on the top for further cushioning.

Other grids are available such as our TR40 which features an in-built reservoir which retains water from a hosepipe or irrigation system used in the morning allowing the water to evaporate through the tread layer throughout the day.

Our TP40 is the same make up as the TR but the reservoirs are open, providing a firmer surface
