Kedels DGR, a Ground Reinforcement Alternative to Asphalt or Paving? Here it is!
Kedel’s Drainage and Ground Reinforcement Solution.
This system provides an economical and environmentally sustainable alternative to asphalt or paving solutions
WHAT IS IT?
KEDEL-DGR reinforces ground and provides robust hard standing for vehicles or other regular traffic, while allowing drainage and avoiding runoff.
Besides the usual term, 'Drainage and Ground Reinforcement Grids', it can also be known as Porous Paving, Permeable Paving, Sustainable Path Drainage, Cellular Paving, Driveway Reinforcement, Ground Stabilisation Grids, Matrix Paving, Gravel Protection or Gravel Migration Protection, Grass Reinforcement, Turf Reinforcement Mesh, Source Control Grids, Geo-Matrices, Grass Grids, Soil Reinforcement, Soil Migration Prevention, or Ground Reinforcement Grids, and there are numerous other expressions.
It basically boils down to this - a means to keep the ground together when you are parking, riding, walking, or working on it, or if you simply wish the soil to stay put for other reasons.
How does it work?
Kedel’s DGR grids are designed to improve water drainage and stop or prevent ground erosion, whether from walking, cycling, vehicles, animals or land migration. The tough, durable interlocking grid system is designed to provide ground reinforcement, turf protection and erosion control. It provides ease of access for emergency vehicles, and because it is self draining, it avoids run off charges from water utilities, PLUS it doesn’t require planning permission!
What’s it made from?
Kedel’s DGR is manufactured entirely from 100% recycled plastics, sourced exclusively in the UK. Both 100% recycled AND 100% recyclable. The ideal, sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to asphalt or paving.
How can you use Kedel’s DGR?
It is a highly durable, environmentally-friendly alternative surface and can be used to excellent effect for permanent and overspill car parks, (see companion parking delineator product) stabilising verges, emergency vehicle access, golf buggy pathways, helicopter pad surfacing, cycle routes, private driveways, pathways, and as many other uses as you can invent where an area needs to remain solid for traffic of all kinds, while retaining an aesthetic appearance with grass, gravel or other covering.
Kedel’s Drainage and Ground Reinforcement system (DGR) will blend unobtrusively into parks, rural areas or heritage sites, unlike asphalt or block paving which stands out like a sore thumb.
