Available in two thicknesses, 16mm and 23mm thick, both are effective when used but a specific grass mat may be needed for a certain application. This is the case for example around larger play areas where the 23mm grass mat is required due to its 3.3 metre critical fall height. Their popularity comes from their durability, versatility, critical fall height and wheelchair friendliness which make them an ideal grass protection option for a number of projects.

Our grass reinforcement mesh is available in three different grades or thicknesses; light, medium and heavy duty which are all strong, long lasting, wheelchair friendly and capable of withstanding the weight of some vehicle and all pedestrian traffic.
