ACO Water Management has announced the launch of its new lightweight reinforced gravel tile, GravelGrid.
Designed for driveway applications, as well as paths and gardens, the robust system is suitable for loads of up to 40 tonnes per square metre, so is ideal for properties with vehicles of varying sizes.
GravelGrid’s incorporated Dupont® Typar™ geo-textile fabric allows for easy installation and reduces the likelihood of weed growth. What’s more, the structure of the tile eliminates the risk of potholes and the porous SUDs solution also allows for an unimpeded flow of surface water, decreasing the rate of run-off and leading to significant cost savings where conventional drainage solutions are not necessary.
Available in two sizes, GravelGrid DIY and GravelGrid PRO, the system is suitable for both professional driveway specialists and DIY enthusiasts. Ideal for smaller projects, GravelGrid DIY is available in 764mm x 390mm tiles, whilst GravelGrid PRO (1520mm x 1180mm) facilitates a faster installation due to a larger tile surface area. Both tiles are 32mm in depth and can be easily cut to accommodate irregular edging.
Phil Windus, Market Manager - Merchants at ACO Water Management, comments: “GravelGrid is the newest addition to the Urban + Landscape range and demonstrates our continued commitment to providing outstanding ground reinforcement products combined with sustainable urban drainage solutions. While at the same time effectively complementing the market leading GroundGuard range which is certified for loads up to 250 tonnes per square metre.
“The issue of paving over driveways and front gardens is an ongoing concern when it comes to potential flood risk. Whilst many builders and homeowners have resorted to gravel to negate this risk, doing so can still result in problems, such as potholes. However, we’re confident GravelGrid will prove to be a highly efficient solution, offering both stable and sustainable results. GravelGrid’s incorporated easy-fit design and professional features are ideal for builders, driveway specialists and even the everyday DIY’er.”
