CORE DRIVE - Gravel Stabiliser

Gravel is one of the most attractive, economical and versatile surfaces on earth. But without help, it’s inclined to move around, creating ridges and ending up where it shouldn’t. We have the perfect solution. Our stabilising cellular grids create a naturally porous base into which gravel sits – and stays! It’s easy to lay, inexpensive and very, very attractive.

It is a common misconception that only thicker, heavier and uglier grids can withstand consistent vehicular traffic and last. This is not the case! We are the UK’s leading gravel stabilisation experts and have specifically designed and manufactured a range of gravel stabilisation grids each intended for a specific traffic load and site condition. Whether your project is a sloping domestic drive or a heavily trafficked commercial parking area… we will have the grid you are looking for!

CORE DRIVE can be installed to create new porous driveways and be laid over existing driveway surfaces, for more information on how please download our installation guidance:

CORE DRIVE 50-30 | is the UK’s best selling grid, produced to be practically invisible once filled with gravel. Specifically designed for domestic drives & acces roads, it can withstand all domestic traffic even the occasional larger delivery vehicle.

It can be used on slopes of up to a 1in10 (10% gradient) and will accomodate any aggregate up to 20mm in diameter.

Small sheet | 1200x800mm

Large sheet | 2400x1200mm

CORE DRIVE 50-35 HD | is designed for larger shared driveways, private car parks, light commercial use and areas that receive frequent traffic.

It can be used on slopes of up to a 1in8 (12.5% gradient). It is 5mm deeper than the 50-30 and has thicker cell wall for additional strength.

Small sheet | 1150x800mm

Large sheet | 2400x1150mm

CORE DRIVE 60-40 HDR | is our heaviest duty domestic grid due to its cell wall thickness and cell shape. It can withstand HGV through traffic and is the only grid on the market that can be used on slopes of up to a 1in5 (20% gradient).

Incorporated into the honeycomb structure are pinning holes designed to take our galvanised ground pins to anchor the system on steep slopes.

Sheet size | 1150x1000mm

HIGH LOAD BEARING

INTERLOCKING MECHANISM

HEAT WELDED MEMBRANE

CORE Drive’s honeycomb grid construction provides tightly packed pockets of loose gravel which create a completely porous hard standing, allowing extreme pressure from vehicular traffic to be applied without the aggregate displacing, this makes CORE drive gravel grid more practical and versatile than other more costly paving options.

Our unique manufacturing technique enables us to heat weld a high quality geotextile membrane to the underside of every panel. This heat weld attaches the membrane firmly to the honeycomb structure and creates a tray for the gravel to sit in, this prevents the gravel from migrating under the cell wall which causes the honeycomb structure to rise and become exposed making it susceptible to irreparable damage.

Each panel has an interlocking mechanism on all four side which allows all adjacent panels to be connected in every direction forming a continuous matrix across the entire surface. The importance of the interlocking mechanism cannot be stressed enough, it prevents the sheets from drifting apart, giving the gravel the opportunity to migrate between the panels which in turn can cause the system to fail, especially on sloping areas.

"The heat welded membrane combined with the interlocking panels has enabled us to create the thinnest and least obtrusive driveway grid system available."
