Reinforced Grass Runways, Grass Taxiways & Helipads
Using TRUEGRID permeable pavers to protect grass runways, grass taxiways, grass helipads, and gravel parking lots and equipment yards at Airfields, Airports, Airstrips, and private grass runways.
SUPPORTED GRASS TAXIWAYS
TRUEGRID® is a durable, all-weather surface designed to drain and prevent rutting. Your plane will not sink into a muddy or wet area while taxiing. TRUEGRID® allows water to pass through keeping your grass taxiways open even after a rain event. A TRUEGRID® grass taxiway requires very little upkeep -- water, fertilization, and mowing -- just like a normal turf surface.
Stronger than concrete, at over 8000 psi, TRUEGRID® provides a powerful, durable grass surface for safe helicopter take-offs and landings. TRUEGRID®'s patented Interlocking and self-anchoring design also provides for high-strength in vector loads, preventing any lateral movement. At a 60-year project lifespan, your TRUEGRID® reinforced grass helipad will last nearly three-times longer than a concrete one, saving you thousands of dollars over the life of your helipad.
AIRFIELD PARKING LOTS
TRUEGRID® permeable pavers can also be filled with gravel for a strong, unlimited traffic surface. TRUEGRID® can drain water up to 800 inches per hour and can remain open and usable even after the heaviest downpour. TRUEGRID® prevents the gravel from rutting, washboarding, and eroding -- saving your maintenance crew hours in repair time.
AIRPORT EQUIPMENT YARDS AND FUEL STATIONS
Even the heaviest trucks and vehicles can drive and park on TRUEGRID®. Fuel station access and vehicle equipment yards are ideal areas for TRUEGRID® gravel permeable paving. TRUEGRID® drains rainwater and prevents area closings due to mud and water -- your equipment yard and fuel station will remain open for business.
Berfore TRUEGRID® was installed, the afternoon rains would saturate the ground creating a muddy, impassable mess -- no place for a plane. After installation, the Wellington Aero Club is able to keep their runways, taxiways, and fuel station access roads open all the time.Read Story
