GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh is an improved heavy duty thick slip resistant polyethylene grid for reinforcing and protecting grassed surfaces prone to wear, rutting and smearing which can result in a muddy surface incapable of withstanding vehicular or pedestrian applications. Terram's new GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh has been has been developed with an oscillated mesh structure which is designed to increase traction and improve slip resistance by up to 97% compared to standard straight oriented meshes. GrassProtecta® grass protection mesh is a cost effective solution for :

• Grass car parksOverflow grass car parks
• Pedestrian pathsDisabled (DDA) access routes
• Light aircraft taxiways
• Grass verges
• Caravan park access and caravan bays
• Front lawn parking

GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh is supplied on 2m x 20m & 1m x 10m rolls in two thicknesses (11mm & 14mm) as determined by the application and manufactured from partly recycled UV Stabilised polyethylene polymer.

Installation is very simple; After cutting the grass short, the grass protection mesh is unrolled and pinned to the surface using metal
U-Pins or plastic pegs. By allowing plants to grow through the plastic mesh apertures, GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh allows the grass sward to intertwine with the plastic mesh filaments creating a strong, discreetly reinforced natural grass surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction. GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can also be installed onto newly landscaped areas with the soil seeded as required. Full installation and design specification are available from Terram's technical team or dowloadedable on the Technical product download tab above.

Terram strongly advise that newly installed GrassProtecta® slip resistant grass reinforcement mesh should be left unused until the grass has grown through the plastic net apertures and a strong interlock has been achieved - normally after a few weeks during the growing season rising to a few months out of the growing season. This is to allow the grass to fully grow through the grass reinforcement net and allow the grass sward to create the strong interlock with the mesh. If the surface is used immediately grass growth may take a longer period of time and may limit the effectiveness of the product initially.



GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement grid provides:

High level of grass reinforcement - up to 8 tonnes per axle (imposed load)Ideal for permanent or temporary applicationsFast and cost effective installation compared to plastic paving gridsNo excavation or soil removal necessarily requiredUp to 97% improved slip resistance compared to the standard grass protection meshesGrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can be used in Source Control applications as part of Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) and is the perfect alternative to impermeable paved surfaces where natural grassed traffic routes and driveways are preferred and where planning restrictions are applied or cost savings are being considered.
