WHAT IS IT?
StablePATH ECO is a gravel stabilisation grid for pedestrian only applications. Coloured black* (also available in translucent at extra cost) with a double strength weed suppressant membrane attached to the base, StablePATH ECO offers an ideal combination of permeable performance, economy and productivity. The panel is produced in a light weight, user friendly size of 1.200 x 0.800 mtr x 30 mm deep, which is very easily cut to shape. Panels have interconnecting location pins, which aid accuracy and speed of installation. Applications are primarily pedestrian, although the grids are strong enough to withstand regular traffic use from landscape and maintenance equipment.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT (Breeam compatibility)
StablePATH ECO is manufactured from 100% re-cycled raw material. The panels themselves and any off cuts can be fully recycled, which leads to an ultra-low carbon footprint in manufacture, use and disposal. StablePATH lends itself to utilising locally sourced or re-cycled aggregates, further enhancing the products environmental credentials. Low gravel demand of 55kg – 65 kg per sq. metre utilises much less material than unreinforced gravel options or bound surfaces.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
StablePATH ECO provides a truly permeable reinforcement for gravels and pathway fills, which offers a natural alternative to resin bonded surfaces, asphalt, concrete or pavers. The honeycomb structure reinforces the aggregate layer, which prevents rutting, spreading and migration of the chippings. Suitable for all pedestrian uses, such as paths, patios, roof gardens, quadrangles and leisure areas, StablePATH ECO creates a solid, permeable, wheelchair and bicycle friendly surface. Very competitively priced, without compromise on durability, StablePATH ECO is tested to the same standards as the other reinforcing grids in the StableDRIVE range. It is fast and easy to install, making this the ideal solution where budget considerations are paramount.
SUDS (Sustainable Drainage)
Planning requirements for hard paved surfaces to have minimum impact on surface drainage capacity necessitates formal planning approval in most parts of the UK. StablePATH ECO addresses those issues entirely, so does not need such approvals. The system can be used as part of a fully permeable sub base construction or water harvesting applications.
StablePATH ECO is fast and easy to install, so whether the application is large or small the client can be sure that construction time will be minimised, thereby ensuring a cost effective outcome. The combination of competitive product cost and fast rates of installation make StablePATH ECO a wise and budget conscious choice for designers, installers and clients.
