TurfPave® HD

What is TurfPave® HD

TurfPave® HD is a structural module designed with sufficient depth to contain and stabilise grass. It is engineered to withstand loads in areas subjected to pedestrian and occasional vehicular traffic.

TurfPave® HD consists of a network of porous cells which protect grass roots against compaction. The openings at the base and side allow roots and plant runners to spread freely to establish vigorous root development to encourage healthy plant growth.

TurfPave® HD modules interlock ensuring that they remain in place during and after installation. The connections between cells allow assembled panels to flex and conform to undulating terrain.

TurfPave® HD is suitable for use as a permeable surface in stormwater management systems as it allows rain water to percolate through the in-fill and infiltrate into the base course below. This process serves to filter pollutants from stormwater at source and prevents water logging. Concrete or asphalt surfaces are impervious surfaces and do not allow infiltration thereby contributing to the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE).

TurfPave® HD is made from 100% recycled materials and supports Green Building Certification.

  • Pedestrian pathways

TurfPave® HD is used in the construction of grass access pathways for stabilisation of areas such as equestrian dressage arenas and paths.

 

It also serves as a slope stabilisation and erosion control measure.
• Reduces erosion and soil migration
• Does not hinder root and runner growth
• Easily installed and removed
• Stacking ability reduces storage and transport cost
• Conform to uneven surfaces
• Supports Green Building certification

Is easily assembled requiring no special tools. The product conforms to odd shapes or profiles, and excess cells may be trimmed with simple cutting tools.

  • Prior to installation, calculate the area where TurfPave® HD is to be installed
  • Excavate and/or level the area
  • Install drainage systems, irrigation systems, and utility lines in the subgrade, as needed
  • Lay and compact a 2-10 mm gravel road base or washed paving sand to provide support for projected weight-bearing loads
  • Position TurfPave® HD cells on the compacted gravel road base or paving sand
  • Cover the TurfPave® HD cells with a recommended sand soil mix for turf establishment
  • Apply recommended moisture, water retention agents and fertilizers
  • Place rolled turf, or hydro-seed onto the filled TurfPave® HD cells
  • Implement regular maintenance schedules
