Pathways & Hard Standing


Pedestrian pathways often get neglected because we are more tolerable with bad, uneven and muddy ground. But that doesn’t mean we should leave them as they are, especially incline pathways such as forest trails.

Take Good Care Of Foothpaths

EquiGrids products are useful in reinforcing the ground for pedestrian pathways. The woven and non-woven geotextile membranes create a barrier that separates between layers to keep the ground in structure and last longer.

A premium option would be installing an EquiGrids permeable porous paving grid with the geotextile membranes. An EquiGrids E40 grids are more than enough to deal with pedestrian traffic, horses and light vehicles.

Installing the grids also means the soil will not be compacted, leading to a permanent well draining system.

Hard Standing

On the other hand, hard standing is a hard surface where vehicles can be parked, hence, EquiGrids installation is recommended. Either EquiGrids E40 or E50 can be used depending on the vehicle weight and frequency.

For domestic driveways and car parks where light vehicles such as cars and motorbikes will be parked, EquiGrids E40 has the strength to support them.

For storage, lorry and aircraft areas where heavy-duty will be parked such as lorries, EquiGrids E50 is the most suitable grid.
