In areas that require the high load bearing capacity of asphalt, Hy-Tex GridLock offers a soft landscaping solution to hard landscaping problems, which is both economically viable and aesthetically pleasing.

GridLock is manufactured from tough HDPE into convenient sized paver tiles that have an attractive geometric pattern and which can be in-filled with grass or decorative gravel to provide a durable free-draining surface.

Key features include raised dimples for improved vehicle traction, perforated based plates for efficient drainage, soil aeration and intercellular root growth, and underside cleats to reduce surface shear. They are also resistant to oil, chemicals and extremes of temperature and have the strength to withstand loads in excess of 170 tonnes per square metre.

Unlike traditional methods of constructing hard-standing areas, there is less site preparation required with GridLock which enhances the sub-base by distributing loads whilst minimising soil and root compaction - this therefore reduces the need for excavation and expensive granular backfill and provides a favourable growing  environment for vegetation and nearby trees.

Installation is quickly carried out by placing the pavers on a bedding layer of sand and soil. Interconnecting and self-positioning supports provide stability and link multiple units when covering large areas.

The cells of the pavers can then be in-filled with soil and seeded, or turf can be laid directly onto the product and lightly rolled in. Alternatively they can be in-filled with decorative gravel for drives and paths and optionally linked with sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) to control stormwater run-off.
If demarcation lines are required, white hexagon-shaped caps can be inserted into the cells or they can be filled with coloured stones.

Emergency access roads, road verge reinforcement, light aircraft taxiways, helicopter landing pads and lorry parks are but a few of the many applications to which this versatile product can be used.
