A Guide to Gravel Stabilisation

Gravel is one of the most attractive, economical and versatile surfaces on earth. However it needs work done on it, else it is inclined to move around, creating ridges and ending up where it shouldn’t. There is a perfect solution. The stabilising cellular grids create a naturally porous base into which gravel sits and stays. It’s easy to lay, inexpensive and very attractive. Gravel surfacing is very popular, but there is one major drawback. Gravel may start to shift when frequently trod or driven upon. This may severely degrade the gravel surface’s comfort level.

If you desire loose gravel on slopes and desire to use that area for wheels, bikes and high heels, then include a network of hexagons. This honeycomb grid is available in two sizes and designed from recycled material. The hexagonal cells are designed to be filled with decorative aggregate or gravel. Geo-textile membrane is bonded thermally to each sheets underside. These honeycomb sheets are weed-resistant and water permeable. The hexagonal cell structure looks just like a honeycomb except its’ synthetic honeycomb is produced from polypropylene material, which has comprehensive strength of more than 200 tones/sq m.

This geotextile-based structure is used to confine aggregate, stone, gravel or soil to provide a stable surface for both pedestrian and trafficked areas, such as private driveways, paths, private car parks, golf courses and artificial surfaces sports fields. Its high tensile strength and the honeycomb structure prevent the infill from spreading thus avoiding subsidence and rutting. The loose infill material and the porosity of the base material allows water penetration, both vertically and horizontally making it the ideal choice for sustainable drainage (SUDS) applications. Supplied in a compressed concertina format for ease of storage and transport, it’s simply extended on site, unfolded, each grid covers an impressive 10 square meters (length 8 m x width 1.25m).

Applications: Gravels are best used in Car parks, Driveways, Caravan sites, pathways, gravel landscaped areas, golf courses, sport fields. etc. The benefits of having a stabilised gravel grid include, Flexible material for terrain conformity, each grid covers 10m²,easy to transport, easy to install, can be cut to size and water permeability of cell wall. Core Landscape Products provides the best gravel stabilisation out there. You can get more information at http://www.corelp.co.uk/.

The interlocking system and manageable size sheets make for easy installation, and stabilising Sheets are entirely environmentally friendly. Stabilised Gravel Surfacing provides a fully porous, natural alternative to resin bound, block paving, asphalt or other hard landscape surfaces. The principal benefits of stabilised gravel have become increasingly valued, as emphasis is placed on sustainable urban setting. The best in gravel stabilisation offer the best ground protection & reinforcement system, with product designed with 100% recycled honeycomb grid, which offers sturdy and tough surface for driveways, car parks, pathways, construction sites, access roads, sporting venues, holiday parks, lawn reinforcements and more.

The surface stabilisation products enable you to create natural looking turf and gravel surfaces that are fully functional and allow for traffic flow. These naturally porous surfaces can make a valuable contribution to any SUDs scheme.
