Ecogrid permeable paving

Ecogrid is a ground reinforcement and permeable paving product made from recycled polyethylene. It’s an environmentally friendly alternative for use in roads and pavements, as well as reinforcement of roadsides, banks, shores and slopes. Trusted around the world, Ecogrid has been providing an economical sustainable drainage solution for over 20 years

Green credentials

Ecogrid is made from bags and bottles that would normally be sent to landfill. Even better, the manufacturing plant – an in-house facility in Arzberg, Germany – is powered using renewable energy at a zero carbon footprint.

Bales of bags and bottles arrive at the factory and are processed into LDPE (low density polyethylene) pellets at the recycling facility. The pellets are then transported to the other end of the factory so that they can be used to make Ecogrid.

100 square metres of our flagship EcoGrid E50 paving can save as much as 60,000 carrier bags that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

Load bearing

Ecogrid comes in three different depths and four different load-bearing capacities. It arrives on-site pre-clipped together in 12 tile or 1.33 square metre sections. It’s TUV tested for loads of 350/250 and 120 tonnes per square metre, however these tests are carried out empty, giving an accurate test of the load bearing quality of the grid alone.

Other grid manufacturers show their load capacities as full grids with substrate, if we did this; Ecogrid would show twice the published capacities at 240/500 and 700 tonnes per square metre. Ecogrid needs no spikes or time consuming clips to assemble, and has been a world leader in permeable paving for the past twenty years.
