Schwabengitter® Grid Ontop

Schwabengitter® Grid Ontop is the ideal solution for easily, quickly and cost-effectively reinforcement of lawn or gravel lawn areas. “The grid is 2.5 cm thick and is placed on top of the existing lawn surface. It is quick and easy to install, providing stable protection for even car loads. The 2.5 cm thick grid is immediately invisibly grown and serves as a reinforcement of the lawn. Schwabengitter® Grid Ontop can also be placed directly on newly seeded or rolled lawns. Its wider web support on the bottom reduces the impression of the grid into the ground. This creates a load-free zone between car tires and the sensitive vegetation point of the grass plant. This allows the plant to grow and develop fully without hindrance. By eliminating complicated foundations, Schwabengitter® Ontop is not only easy to lay by anyone, but also creates a natural, percolating, and robust surface that can be expanded and modified at any time. Like Schwabengitter® 2000, Schwabengitter® Ontop is made of specially pure high-density polyethylene and is therefore environmentally neutral. The grids can be easily recycled. The extremely thin webs keep more than 90% of the surface green and serve for the flat percolation of rainwater.

Schwabengitter® Grid Paddock

The 2.5 cm thick grid immediately grows invisibly and serves as a reinforcement of the lawn. Schwabengitter Grid Paddock is the perfect solution for horse owners who need a stable, slip-resistant, and long-lasting surface for paddocks, runs, turnout entrances, riding paths, and other outdoor areas.

The grid separates the bearing layer and the tread layer (if present) and is elastic, flexible, and shock-absorbing. It is made of high-purity recycled polyethylene, making it environmentally friendly and UV resistant. It can be installed on simple, permeable gravel base layers and enables optimal water drainage. With Schwabengitter Grid Paddock, horse owners no longer have to deal with mud and dirt in bad weather.
