IS A GRID SYSTEM THE BEST OPTION FOR A GRAVEL STABILIZER?
With a number of benefits, TRUEGRID’s permeable paving grid system is the best possible option as it creates ground reinforcement, acts as a gravel stabilizer and eliminates future maintenance issues. The 2″ deep grid formed by the cylinders in TRUEGRID permeable pavers captures and stabilizes gravel, preventing it from spreading and causing ruts, a common issue with unstabilized gravel parking lots and roads. This means you don’t have additional maintenance costs from the frequent refilling and grading of the gravel surface.
Experience has shown that other methods for gravel stabilization, such as webbing, rollout pavers or borders, don’t provide the results you need, working poorly and requiring frequent maintenance, an added cost that you won’t have with TRUEGRID’s paver system. Because webbing doesn’t retain gravel and concrete borders or edges don’t prevent rutting and allow excessive gravel spreading, it’s easy to see why TRUEGRID is the choice of many contractors, as it addresses these issues without expensive and time-consuming future maintenance.

WHY ARE GRAVEL STABILIZERS IMPORTANT?
Plastic ground reinforcement is very important as it eliminates gravel refills and maintenance, virtually eliminating future costs. With compressive strength in excess of 6800 psi, using TRUEGRID for a gravel stabilizer TRUEGRID can easily handle heavy traffic while preventing gravel from being crushed or pulverized, almost entirely reducing dust usually associated with unstabilized gravel job sites, roads and parking lots.
Because the surface is permeable, our TRUEGRID paving system allows rainwater to pass through the surface, soaking into the ground and preventing flooding, runoff and erosion. This porosity also allows air to circulate more freely, reducing the heat island effect and making your roads, parking lots and work sites more comfortable for workers, customers and other visitors. By stabilizing, retaining and protecting the gravel on your site, TRUEGRID’s permeable paver system virtually eliminates all maintenance costs while providing a more comfortable environment.

WHEN SHOULD I CONSIDER GRAVEL STABILIZATION?
There are a number of situations in which the TRUEGRID permeable pavement system can provide exceptional economic, maintenance and environmental benefits and should be seriously considered. In situations where moderate to heavy traffic exists and maintenance labor and cost is a concern, TRUEGRID virtually eliminates these costs while providing decades of reliable service. If stormwater runoff, erosion and rutting from heavy rain are problematic, TRUEGRID’s permeability provides both a protective channel and a storage buffer for rainwater. When gravel can cause choking dust clouds which damage crops, livestock and causes serious health issues, TRUEGRID provides exceptional strength to prevent this problem.
