X-Grid is our very own ground reinforcement grid that we designed and manufacture right here in the UK from 100% recycled plastic. The unique formulation and design of our grid have given it unrivalled benefits such as being able to withstand the compression of up to 428 tonnes per sqm when unfilled. Our grid is also incredibly durable with long serviceable life, each panel is resistant to UV rays, chemicals and weather damage (from -50°C to +90°C) meaning it will not rot away or break down over time and can last for up to 25 years.
Whilst providing a solid surface, the high void ratio of each panel also makes it fully permeable and SuDS compliant which allows water to flow freely through each grid and maintain natural drainage routes. With flooding becoming a common occurrence across the UK, using a product that encourages natural drainage and helps to ease the pressure on our drainage systems (which have proved time and again they can struggle to cope with large amounts of rain) is a step in the right direction to help prevent localised flooding.
In addition to the previously mentioned benefits, our grid is also very easy to install due to its lightweight frame and specially designed slot and peg connection system. It is so easy to work that one person is able to lay 100m² of the grid in an hour. You also have a choice of how to fill your grid once it is installed, you can choose a classic gravel finish for migration and pothole-free driveway or car park, or you can fill it with soil and seed to create luscious grassed areas. The green grid blends into the grass making it near unnoticeable. The green colouring accompanied with the versatile nature of our grid makes it perfect for projects on grassed areas of gardens, golf courses, parks, stables, car parks, driveways as well as bases for garden buildings. Not only does the green grid blend with the grass, but it also protects the grass by preventing any pedestrian, animal or vehicular traffic from compacting the soil and damaging the grass, in turn allowing grass to continue growing.

How much gravel is needed to fill X-Grid panels?

How do you install X-Grid?
X-Grid is very easy to install. Follow our installation guide for a simple and effective install.
Can X-Grid be cut to fit a specific area?
Yes, X-Grid can be easily cut using just hand-held saws to fit your project perfectly.
Is X-Grid easy to lay?
Yes, X-Grid is simple to lay thanks to its interlocking slot and peg system. When tested, one person was able to lay up to 100m² of X-Grid per hour.
Is there a difference between the three colours?
They are exactly the same product with the only difference being their colour. Green and white X-Grid is dyed to achieve their colours which is why they cost a little more than black X-Grid.
Are there examples of X-Grid being installed?
Yes, you can see some X-Grid case studies on our blog site.
