TR3 Turf Protection Mesh-Standard
SUREGREEN TR3 Turf protection mesh protects and reinforces grass where wear, rutting and muddy areas are caused by traffic from pedestrians, bikes, wheels and dogs.
TR3 Turf protection mesh helps to reduce grass wear, rutting and damage by spreading loads and creating a stronger root base and so retaining a natural, structure free grass cover. TR3 turf reinforcement mesh has been specially designed, using carefully selected high density plastics, to allow permanent trafficking for pedestrian and animals to grassed areas where and when this would not normally be considered. Grass reinforced with SUREGREEN TR3 turf reinforcement meshes can be used throughout the warmer seasons and occasionally in the winter months in some circumstances, subject to factors like frequency of use, nature of soil and the surface drainage. SUREGREEN TR3 Turf protection mesh is manufactured from an extruded HDPE plastic mesh, which contains a proportion of recycled plastic.
Typical TR3 Applications:
TR3 plastic mesh is designed to provide many solutions of pedestrian access, soil stabilization, and prevent worn and rutted grass areas. Typical applications include:-
- Pedestrian grassed walkways
- Grass paths
- Lawn Reinforcement
- Small dog runs on grassed areas / pet play areas
- Protection agianst free range chickens pecking the ground
- Rubber matting stabilisation
- Wheelchair grassed acccess paths
- Play areas, under swings, around climbing frames
The principal behind how TR3 turf protection mesh works, is that the grass sward and roots interwine with the mesh filaments creating a strong interlock / entanglement of grass and plastic mesh. This entanglement protects the grass from traffic wear, and helps the grass spread loads more evenly. The plastic mesh will quickly disappear into the grass producing an invisible reinforced natural looking grass surface. SUREGREEN TR3 mesh is intended to give extra strength and a footprint to the top grass surface protecting the grass root structure and so abrasion is greatly minimised.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Supplied on easy to handle rolls
- TR3 mesh is supplied in green as standard
- Available in 2m x 30, 2m x 10m and 1m x 10m rolls
- Fixed to the ground using Suregreen's fixing steel u-pins
- Grass creates an interlock with the mesh, ensure solid ground stabilisation
- Manufactured using part-recycled plastics
Installation is normally easy and trouble free by pinning the SUREGREEN TR3 mesh to the existing grass surface using SUREGREEN steel fixing U-Pins. If installed correctly and not used inappropriately, the expected lifetime of the meshes should be at least 10 to 20 years. SUREGREEN TR3 meshes are UV stabilised, and once in place the mesh should not degrade. For full installation, please click INSTALLATION.
SUREGREEN TR3 is a fully permeable solution and as such are used as or in a Sustainable Drainage System Solution (SUDS). The natural drainage of the land is unaffected as is the natural ecology of the soils by the mesh.
It is important that that when installed, turf reinforcement mesh is fixed securely to the ground using our steel fixing u-pins. We recommend the following amount of u-pins per product size:
|Roll Size||Initial Roll (Number of Pins)||Subsequent Rolls (Number of Pins)|
|2m x 30m||150 pins (3 bags of 50)||100 pins (2 bags of 50)|
|2m x 10m||50 pins (1 bag of 50)||50 pins (1 bag of 50)|
