The benefits of Gravel grids
WHY GRAVEL STABILISATION?
Gravel surfacing is very popular, but there is one major drawback. Gravel may start to shift when frequently trodden or driven upon. This may severely degrade the gravel surface’s comfort level.
You may opt for gravel with a multitude of fine particles. This will allow the gravel to stay in place (e.g. a gravel type of 0-5 mm or 0-15 mm). However, the greater the number of fine particles, the lower the water permeability. This creates puddles, potholes and rutting, and causes the fine particles to stick to one’s shoes…
THE SOLUTION: ECCOgravel® GRAVEL SHEETS
Use gravel without fine particles (starting at 4 mm). The gravel is held in place by the gravel sheets, and the grids are covered with a top layer of gravel.
You end up with a functional and stable gravel surface with a sleek and modern appearance which is perfectly permeable. The ECCOgravel® gravel surfacing system has a very high compressive strength, both in unfilled and filled state. With gravel surfacing, one should always ensure that no gravel gets under the gravel sheets. ECCOgravel® uses the most sophisticated bonding techniques, and the polyester geotextile is bonded so strongly that the risk is reduced to zero.
ECCOgravel® gravel sheets - also called gravel plates - have a broad field of application: have a look at our gravel sheets for terraces, walkways and garden paths, or for driveways and parking areas. An ECCOgravel® gravel sheet is also ideally suited for roof terraces, fire accesses, sports areas, etc.
