Products of Gravel grids
You can choose between a plate height of 3 cm and 4 cm. ECCOgravel also comes in white (for lighter gravel types), in black (for darker gravel types) and in grey (ECCOgravel HDPE Grey : 100% recyclable and made from recycled material // Optimal to combine with more than 60% of available gravel types)
The 3 cm and 4 cm ECCOgravel® gravel sheets have similar properties (torque resistance, pressure resistance, flexibility, …). However, the distribution of forces into the foundation is better with a 4 cm gravel plate than with a 3 cm plate.
1. Place a sheet of paper on your hand and hit it with a hammer.
2. Place a phone book on your hand and hit it with a hammer.
Conclusion: the distribution of forces is better in the second case. If we apply this logic to ECCOgravel® then we may conclude that the foundation will endure reduced stresses when the plate is thicker. ECCOgravel 30 Double plates can be used for vehicular applications, on condition that the foundations put in place are very sturdy. The added cost for this additional reinforcement does not outweigh the costs saved by choosing a thinner plate.
Can the ECCOgravel® 30 Double gravel sheet be used in applications with cars?
Of cours it can, on the condition that the foundation is very solidly executed. The extra cost for this additional reinforcement does not always outweigh the savings of a thinner sheet.
