Zigma®'s GeoGrid™ Cellular Paver Awarded UK Patent
Zigma® Ground Solutions, a world leader in delivering innovative and sustainable temporary access and ground protection products, has recently been awarded its first UK patent.
Essex (I-Newswire) September 20, 2012 - Zigma® Ground Solutions, a world leader in delivering innovative and sustainable temporary access and ground protection products, has recently been awarded its first UK patent. The company, based in Stansted, Essex, received the award for their GeoGrid product, a cellular, interconnecting ground reinforcement grid. The grass protection tile can be used to construct environmentally friendly car and truck parks, emergency access lanes, driveways, depot work areas and SUDS (Suburban Urban Drainage Systems). The GeoGrid cells can be ‘finished off’ (in-filled) with gravel, ornamental stones or seeded with grass, providing a sustainable alternative to both tarmac and concrete. The cellular paver also provides effective dispersion of rain water and allows the ground underneath to ‘breathe’.
The UK patent was awarded for GeoGrid's unique cellular design – an Arabic/algebraic pattern. This design delivers both the highest weight load rating versus comparable products, together with the most efficient contraction and expansion capabilities, a key requirement where there can be extremes of both hot and cold temperatures. GeoGrid is designed and manufactured in the UK, and demonstrates Zigma®’s total commitment to sustainability, being manufactured from 100% recycled plastics (as with all Zigma®’s products) and is 100% recyclable.
Since GeoGrid’s launch in 2008, it has been installed across a wide spectrum of major civil and construction projects in the UK. The grass protection tile is popular with a variety of industries for its simple interlocking design, providing fast installation. If required, GeoGrid™ can come with block inserts to mark out routes, parking spaces and disabled signs. The ground protection grid is also ideal for equestrian and outdoor events, pedestrian access ways, road extensions and widening, and infiltration basins.
Zigma® Ground Solutions are the exclusive supplier of cellular grids, specifically GeoGrid, to B&Q, the UK’s largest chain of home improvement and DIY stores. For further details about GeoGrid™ and Zigma® Ground Solutions visit www.zigmagroundsolutions.com or call 0845 643 5388.
