Suregreen Truckgrid Max permeable paving can, as the name suggests can be used to create a reinforced surface able to withstand frequent very heavyweight vehicle movements. The types of traffic would include HGV trucks, forklifts, dustcarts, dray Lorries, oil tankers and fire engines.
Suregreen Truckgrid is made entirely from recycled industrial waste plastics, including recycled bottles to polythene sheeting. The grid is made in a unique way that allows these plastics that would normally end up in a land fill to be reused in a beneficial way. The Truckgrid Max can be installed with a gravel or grass finish whilst still maintaining a strong reinforced, free draining surface.
The product is often used in rural as well as urban situations, this is because the Truckgrid Max is permeable and does not create water runoff and therefore eliminates the need for extra drainage. In rural applications it is often installed with a grass fill and would typically be used as access roads for windfarms, pumping & relay stations, solar farms and all weather heavy use for agricultural roadways and turning areas. In urban applications it is commonly installed with either a gravel or grass and in locations where you require both a free draining surface and a surface able to withstand the movements of heavyweight vehicles or appliances that inflict a lot of weight. Typical projects have been access roads, container parking, coach parks, builder merchant yards, emergency routes and very busy parking and movement areas.
Suregreen Truckgrid Max permeable grid has been tested to DIN 1072, DIN EN 1999 & DIN 1055-100. These tests are for wheel loadings, compression and regularity of the size and density of the Suregreen Truckgrid Max.
Suregreen Truckgrid Max is suitable to be used as part of SuDS - the latest government guidelines regarding flood prevention. The grid is made to allow full permeability and so not extra create water runoff. This can really help to reduce the overall costs of projects as generally extra drainage is kept to a bare minimum, if needed at all, as the water is allowed to naturally permeate away.
