GRAVEL STABILISATION GRIDS FOR DRIVEWAYS
Nidagravel 130 and 140 - Honeycomb gravel stabilisation system
Our Nidagravel 130 and Nidgravel 140 gravel stabilization grids hold loose gravel in place permanently within a system of honeycomb cells, which are supplied in a large format sheet size for fast installation, enabling our gravel stabilisers to be used for a wide range of applications. Nidagravel 130 and 140 gravel grids are designed to stabilise medium to large areas of gravel making these grids ideal for stabilising gravel driveways. Suitable for regular or everyday use by cars, 4x4's and vans as well as the occasional use by heavy trucks and HGVs (for example - when a large vehicle makes a delivery to your home). In addition to creating a firm, stable gravel surface for vehicles and parking a Nidagravel grid driveway surface is much easier to use for everyone. Walking across the stabilised gravel surface is easy and it's suitable for wheelchair users. Riding your bike, motorbike, pushing a buggy and even just putting the wheelie bins out is a breeze. You don't even know Nidagravel honeycomb grids are there as our gravel retention system is designed to be an invisible gravel stabiliser hidden from view under a layer of gravel. The Nidagravel 130 and 140 gravel mats are filled to the top with your choice of angular decorative gravel and then overfilled with a thin layer of gravel so that all you see is a natural and attractive gravel surface.
The main application for Nidagravel 130 and 140 gravel stabilisation grids is the residential driveway and we regularly recommend both of these honeycomb gravel trays for this application. In addition to our gravel grids preventing potholes and ruts from developing, Nidagravel 130 and 140 grids can effectively stabilise gravel on sloping driveways of up to 15% with minimal gravel migration, which is an important factor, as most gravel driveways in the UK have some degree of slope either towards or away from the property. The maximum slope gradient that we recommend for gravel driveways is 15% (that's a fall of 15cm in the metre) up to this gradient the sloping gravel surface will be effectively stabilised with very low movement of gravel. Where a driveway gradient is at the maximum 15% or close to this, we recommend using our highest specification honeycomb gravel grid, Nidagravel 140, which is even more robust than our Nidagravel 130 grids and at 40mm thick it can hold a greater volume of gravel (approx 200kg per sheet). Nidagravel 130 and 140 gravel grid dimensions are both the same at 1.2m wide x 2m long. Nidagravel 130 is 30mm thick and Nidagravel 140 is 40mm thick. Each grid covers 2.4 square meters, which makes them quick to install and large gravel driveways can be laid quickly, which is one of the reasons Nidagravel grid driveways are such a cost-effective option. One of the experienced contractors listed on our Contractor Link can lay and fill up to 400 sqm of Nidagravel grids per day onto a prepared sub-base on a large project where access is good. This demonstrates the speed at which Nidagravel grids can be laid on large projects. Our honeycomb grids are lightweight and can be moved around and laid easily by one person making Nidagravel grids also suitable for DIY installation and the average-sized driveway.
