CORE Path is suitable for:

Aggregate Fill Size: We recommend up to 12mm angular gravel, (Please Note: The smaller the aggregate, the flatter it lays and the easier it is to walk on). The sheets have a weed membrane heat welded to the underside and should be laid on a suitable sub-base (see Specifications and Install Guide below). Alternatively they can be laid over existing tarmac, concrete or gravel pathways. 

Environmentally Friendly: Completely porous and SUDS compliant (Sustainable Urban Drainage System). Perfect For: Pathways, patios, green house floors etc. Load Bearing: 40 tons p/m2 empty and 150 tons p/m2 full (approximately 15 tons per ft2). Suitable For: Pedestrian, bicycle, wheelchair and disabled traffic, fully DDA Compliant (Disability Discrimination Act).

Benefits & Flexibility:

  • Available in white, virgin recyclable plastic.  
  • Huge savings on aggregates, Requires 50% less gravel than a typical gravel surface.
  • Easy to self-install.
  • Easy to manage sheet size.
  • Easy to cut using pruning shears, heavy-duty scissors or disc cutter.
  • The sheets are highly flexible, allowing them to bend slightly and follow the contour of the ground.
  • No need for a separate weed membrane 50g/m2 non- woven geotextile firmly heat welded to the underside of the grid.
  • All COREgravel stabilisers have been designed for a specific task, so now you don’t have to spend out on a heavy grid capable of taking HGV traffic to form a pathway.

Brief Install Guide: CORE Path can be laid over firm ground on a 10-15mm sharp sand blinding, if ground is soft, firm with thin layer of sub-base depending on CBR (California Bearing Ratio) of existing ground. Each pack requires 200 kg or 10 bags of gravel, ensuring there is a thin layer of gravel to cover the grid. Can also be laid directly over existing concrete, tarmac, gravel or paving slabs. Simply level the existing surface, with a blinding of sharp sand. Ensure adjoining surfaces finish level to avoid trip hazards. Clip the sheets together and back fill with your chosen gravel. 

Coverage: 6.50m2 (70 Sq.ft) per pack. Each pack contains 14 sheets measuring 785mm (31 in) x 580mm (23 in). 1 pack will surface a pathway 11 m long x 0.8 m wide, or a 6.50m2 area without the need to cut any sheets. 1 ton of 6/8mm gravel laid at 25mm depth (18mm in the grid and 7mm over the grid) will cover approximately 35m2.
