GR11 Grass Protection Mesh Standard
SUREGREEN GR11 standard grass protection mesh is a 11mm thick oscillated plastic mesh for reinforcing and protecting grass used for trafficking - vehicles or pedestrians to limited grass wear, rutting and damage.
GR11 grass protection mesh has been specially designed, using carefully selected high density plastics, to allow traffic - car or pedestrian – to grassed areas where and when this would not normally be considered. GR11 standard grass protection mesh achieves this by reinforcing and protecting existing grass areas against traffic damage (cars, bicycles, bikes and pedestrians from wear and rutting) whilst retaining and keeping the natural look of grass cover.
SUREGREEN GR11 grass protection mesh will allow prolonged summer and limited use in spring / autumn when this would not be an option. The suitability of GR11 is subject to factors including frequency of use, type of traffic, nature of soil and drainage. GR11 grass protection mesh is better suited to be used on well drained sandy soils, light car use or frequent pedestrian use.
SUREGREEN GR11 grass reinforcement meshes are ideally suited to be used to provide many applications solutions of car parking and access where a grass surface may not have been previously considered. Typical problems solved would include:-
- Daily car parking requirements in the warmer months or on very well-draining soils
- Overflow grass car parks in the warmer months
- Temporary grass access routes
- Pedestrian routes over grass
- Disabled paths and routes over grass
- Caravan awning parking areas
- Extra car parking on existing grassed lawns
GR11 grass mesh has been specially designed to allow quick and maximum grass entanglement, giving structure and encouraging the mesh to disappear into the existing grass, creating a tough reinforced grass. The plastic mesh has an oscillated structure providing enhanced anti-slip properties whilst retaining the necessary resistance to damaging traffic movements.
Installing SUREGREEN GR11 grass reinforcement mesh is normally easy and trouble free. The plastic mesh is laid onto the existing established grass and fixed in place using SUREGREEN steel fixing U-Pins. If installed correctly and not used inappropriately, the expected lifetime of the SUREGREEN GR11 grass reinforcement mesh should be at least 15 to 20 years. The plastic mesh is UV stable, rot proof and once in place the mesh will not degrade. Please see our installation guide for instructions or contact our technical team for further clarification.
SUREGREEN GR11 needs to be fully entangled and completely grass covered before used.
SUREGREEN GR11 is a fully permeable solution and as can be used as part of a source control system within a Sustainable Urban Drainage System Solution (SUDS). The natural drainage of the land is unaffected as is the natural ecology of the soils by the mesh.
fEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Installed onto existing grass
- Reduces wear, rutting and mud caused for regular pedestrian or car traffic
- Fast to install, cost effective and suitable for homeowners and landscapers
- Slip resistant mesh structure
- 11mm thick plastic mesh protects grass roots from damage
Both grades of SUREGREEN GR11 grass meshes are available in the following roll variations:
- 2m x 20m
- 2m x 10m
- 1m x 10m
- 2.5m x 5m
GR11 grass protection mesh should be installed using steel u-pins. The table below suggests the minimum per roll to ensure that the plastic mesh is flat and secure to the turf surface.
||Initial Roll (Number of Pins)||Subsequent Rolls (Number of Pins)|
|2m x 20m||200 pins (4 bags of 50)||150 pins (3 bags of 50)|
|2m x 10m||150 pins (3 bags of 50)||100 pins (2 bags of 50)|
|1m x 10m||100 pins (2 bags of 50)||50 pins (1 bag of 50)|
|2.5m x 5m||100 pins (2 bags of 50)||50 pins (1 bag of 50)|
