Grass Reinforcement Mesh

Grass Reinforcement Mesh

GrassProtecta grass reinforcement mesh

GrassProtecta™ grass reinforcement mesh is a thick plastic mesh supplied on a roll that is installed directly onto existing grass to protect, reinforce and stabilize the grass against damage caused by traffic (pedestrians and vehicles.) Grass protection mesh protects grass that is prone to wear, rutting and muddy surfaces. GrassProtecta reinforces the grass for vehicle traffic (car and trucks) or for pedestrian paths and walkways. TYPAR Geosynthetic's  GrassProtecta plastic mesh reinforcement has an oscillated mesh structure which is designed to increase grip and reduce slip. 

GrassProtecta is a cost effective solution for :  
• Grass car parking lots / overflow parking
• Pedestrian and bike paths
• Handicap / wheelchair grass access routes
• Manufactured to ASTM F1951-08 for ADA Accessibility
• Grassed Landing pads and aircraft taxiways
• Equestrian surfaces
• Grass shoulder reinforcement
• Motor home access and bays
• Lawn parking
• R.V. parks
 

GrassProtecta grass protection mesh is supplied on 6.56ft x 65.6ft & 3.28ft x 32.8ft rolls in two thicknesses 0.55 & 0.45 inches. The grass stabilization mesh is manufactured from high density polyethylene with about 20% of the polymer being from recycled materials and is fully recyclable.

GrassProtecta is very easy to install; after cutting the grass short,  unroll the grass protection mesh roll and secure to the existing grass surface using metal U-pins or plastic fixing pegs. GrassProtecta grass stabilzer mesh allows the grass to grow through the plastic mesh holes ensuring the grass roots / blades intertwine with the plastic mesh strands creating a strong stabilized grassed surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction resulting in a natural grass reinforcement solution with invisible structures on the surface.  GrassProtecta can also be installed onto newly landscaped areas with the soil seeded as required.


TYPAR Technical Sales recommends that GrassProtecta turf protection mesh remains unused until the grass has grown through the plastic net apertures. This may take a few months (up to eight months) depending on the season and geographic location and allows the grass to fully grow through the mesh resulting in the grass blade / roots creating a strong interlock with the mesh strands. If the surface is used immediately grass growth may take a longer period of time and may limit the effectiveness of the mesh at reinforcing the surface.
 

GrassProtecta grass reinforcement grid provides :
 

  • High level of grass reinforcement – up to 8 tons per axle (imposed load)
  • Fast and cost effective installation compared to plastic grass paving grids
  • A reinforced porous / permeable stabilized natural grass surface
  • Allows rainwater naturally penetrate the ground below
  • Ability to mow grass as usual
  • After grass growth the mesh is an invisible structure as it is hidden in the grass roots

GrassProtecta can be used in source control applications in accordance with Low Impact Design (LID) and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) guidelines for water management 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.
