The ECODECK EARTH-PRESS grid is extremely tough and robust and can comfortably withstand vehicles up-to around 20-25 (tested) tonnes including farm machinery, tractors and lorries & cars / vans etc. They are suitable for various domestic to light industrial surface reinforcement applications (see our ‘Other Information’ section for other uses and applications).
Its innovative ‘cutting edge’ design allows for the grid to be ‘pressed’ into the existing ground ensuring that all traffic ride on the combination of both the grids and the ground preventing ground churning. And the key is to stop the beginning process of the ground churning, because once it starts it gets worse. So protect the grass, and the grass will protect your ground.
HOW IT WORKS – The grid is designed in a way that it tapers from a sharper edge from bottom of the grid that is first to contact the earth, to the middle wider profile, (this design allows the deck to cut through the earth like a knife as weight is applied. Then from a wider middle profile it tapers back down to a slightly less sharp top edge, this means the earth can trap the grids down to prevent a lifting action, this is where our grid is unlike any other grid in the world, and with this the corners of the grid have a specially deigned rib (which we call an Anti-Lift-Rib), which also prevents it from lifting. This too is added to by the grabbing of the grass itself over a short period of time, clinging and almost wrapping the grids, and grass being as strong as it is- means they simply wont budge once knitted together. And the longer they are in the ground, the more wrapped & binded they become by the grass. Leading to a far more durable and stable surface, which stays green even in the winter wet months- meaning no more mud!
We recommend that the grids are pressed into the ground using a 2.5 tonne ride on vibrating roller (or upto a 10 tonne roller is fine too). And importantly with the circle markings on facing down into the ground. This makes for an incredible easy installation.
The ECODECK EARTH-PRESS is a high strength, UV stable, recycled, injection moulded plastic grid that is compression tested to a ‘minimum’ 500 tonne / SQM load test rating. Grids are of modular design which means the system can be added too at any time.

Our ECODECK EARTHPRESS model is the only one of its kind. Its permeable open cell structure and innovative ‘cutting edge’ design allows for the grid to be ‘pressed’ into the existing ground providing surface reinforcement. The grids are pressed into the soil to ground level which ensures that all traffic ride on a combination of both the grid and the underlying ground therefore preventing the ground from churning. They are extremely strong yet have the flexibility in themselves as well as the joining system to allow the grids to ride any ground undulation. Our ECODECK EARTHPRESS grids measure 85 x 62 x 3.5cm and are suitable for various domestic to light industrial surface reinforcement applications.
