What is TRUEGRID?

  • TRUEGRID is a commercial permeable paving alternative to concrete and asphalt made from 100% recycled HDPE plastic that provides stability and storm water detention.
  • TRUEGRID is super durable and storm water permeable to reduce flooding as well as stop rutting and erosion by providing structure for ground stabilisation.
  • Park/drive on the TRUEGRID surface and detain water underneath.

What are the environmental benefits of TRUEGRID?

TRUEGRID is green from manufacturing through end use. TRUEGRID is made from 100% post industrial recycled HDPE. Using TRUEGRID allows storm water to permeate through the aggregate or grass fill so bioremediation can help remove pollutants from the water before it reaches the water table (Environment).

How long will my TRUEGRID last?

Based on current applications in the USA the life span of TRUEGRID is 25 to 60 plus years depending on traffic and application.

TRUEGRID will typically outlast asphalt with much less maintenance and last as long as or longer than concrete.

How long will TRUEGRID stay permeable?

For the life of the installation when filled with the recommended clean, washed fill aggregate or grass.

How can I get detention space under the surface of TRUEGRID?

By using clean angular, 14 mm to 20 mm, you can create detention which is calculated by multiplying the cubic metre of storage by 40%. This represents the void space in the rock sub- base and the detention capacity.

Can TRUEGRID be cut to fit any shape?

Yes, TRUEGRID can be easily cut on site with a handheld power saw.

What applications can TRUEGRID be used in?

Virtually any paving application except for high speed highways. TRUEGRID is ideally suited for parking lots, trucking yards, equipment storage yards, driveways, access easements, sports fields, overflow parking, job sites, oil field rig sites, pathways, NDIS compliant surfaces, horse and livestock stalls and trails, event parking, entertainment venues for parking and foot traffic, landscaping, temporary parking or heavy vehicle traffic, equipment pads, hot tub pads, golf course paths.
