TERRAM GrassProtecta® is a heavy duty, thick, slip resistant polyethylene grid. It is used to reinforce and protect grassed surfaces prone to wear, rutting and smearing which would otherwise result in a muddy surface incapable of withstanding vehicular or pedestrian applications. 

The reinforcement mesh has been developed with an oscillated mesh structure which is designed to increase traction and improve slip resistance by up to 97% compared to standard straight oriented meshes. 

TERRAM GrassProtecta® grass protection mesh is a cost effective solution for :

• Grass car parksOverflow grass car parks
• Pedestrian pathsDisabled (DDA) access routes
• Light aircraft taxiways
• Equestrian surfaces
• Grass verges
• Caravan park access and caravan bays
• Front lawn parking

Supplied on 2m x 20m & 1m x 10m rolls in two thicknesses (11mm & 14mm) as determined by the application and manufactured from partly recycled UV Stabilised polyethylene polymer.

TERRAM GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can be installed on recently cut grass as well as newly landscaped areas of seeded soil seeded as required. The grass protection mesh is unrolled and pinned to the surface using metal U-Pins or plastic pegs. 

The grass reinforcement mesh allows the grass sward to intertwine with the plastic mesh filaments creating a strong, discreetly reinforced natural grass surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction. 

Full installation and design specification are available from the technical team or downloadedable on the Technical product download tab above.

It is strongly advise that newly installed TERRAM GrassProtecta® slip resistant grass reinforcement mesh should be left unused until the grass has grown through the plastic net apertures and a strong interlock has been achieved - normally after a few weeks during the growing season rising to a few months out of the growing season.

TERRAM GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement grid provides a high level of grass reinforcement - up to 8 tonnes per axle (imposed load), is deal for permanent or temporary applications, is a fast and cost effective installation compared to plastic paving grids, requires no excavation or soil removal necessarily required and provides up to 97% improved slip resistance compared to the standard grass protection meshes.

GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can be used in Source Control applications as part of Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) 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.
