BodPave 85 Pavers
Bodpave 85 pavers are an excellent
solution for projects which call for ground reinforcement in areas
which are covered in either gravel or grass. These pavers are also a
great solution for smaller projects which call for a limited amount
of gravel paver material as Bodpave 85 is available in smaller square
footage quantities than other rolled grass or gravel paver products.
Over the past years the demand for soft
pavement alternatives that can be installed in highly trafficked
areas had tremendously increased. Instead of simply defaulting to
concrete and asphalt to reinforce concrete many of innovative options
now exist on the market to ensure that both grass and gravel are
properly reinforced for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. With
these soft pave alternatives constructing service roads, car parks
and walkways has been simplified and the outcome is very esthetically
attractive. An additional advantage with these softpave options is
that they easily blend into the filled material. Additionally, they
can blend well with hard-pave options that are already installed in
One of the commonly installed ground
reinforcement options is BodPave 85. This product is designed to
endure various traffic requirements including frequently used roads
and parking areas. Bodpave 85 can also easily conform to obstacles or
curved areas as it is designed to be cut to fit with a standard power
The pavers are modular with an
interlocking cellular appearance that can be installed with either a
gravel or grass-filled surface. The pavers are made from HDPE which
is 100% recycled, the pavers are eco-friendly and durable, perfectly
suited to sustain highly trafficked areas.
Open cell structure that promotes
full grass growth
Integral ground spikes that
prevent lateral movement and deformation
Integral interlocking connections
Castellation that increases
traction and lateral grass growth
Water retention cups used for
optimizing the growth of the roots
This ground reinforcement system is
commonly installed in different areas as follows:
Bus/car parking lots
Access roads for emergency
Helipads and aircraft taxiways
Handicap paths and walkways
Golf cart paths
Residential parking and driveways
BodPave 85 is available at affordable
cost and an effective solution to rutted and worn grassed areas, for
source control surfaces and displaced gravel. It is also designed to
provide performance that can bear heavy loads, thus provides positive
mechanical interlock and structural integrity.
BodPave 85 can bear he maximum
load of 230psi at 25 inches of deflection.

This ground reinforcement is uniquely
designed to counterattack the lateral movement of the ground and
improve traction. Likewise, it promotes optimal grass growth, surface
stabilization and root protection.
BodPave 85 consists of
pre-assembled four pavers that are connected together. Once it is
plotted on the ground, it is then filled with sand soil for grass
surface or angular aggregate for gravel surface. The construction of
the ground reinforcement depends on the type of application and the
condition of the site as well as the load bearing.
Ensure that the surface is prepped
with the appropriate gravel base to support the intended load.
Please refer to the official Bodpave 85 instillation guide for base
recommendations relating to your project type.
Install the paver with the
specified edge retention either concrete, tanalised timber boards,
plastic curbs or steel as appropriate.
The root zone bedding layer of the
sand soil should be in uniform and correct thickness, in proper
level and well-consolidated.
Place the paver firmly and the
ground spikes should be fully pressed into the bedding. The adjacent
pavers should be connected together while putting the edge
connectors beneath the edge loops.
After installing the pavers, it
should be filled with the appropriate fill to the specified level.
Normal seeding, watering and
fertilizing program should be carried out. Likewise, top dressing
can be applied to embed the seed and allow enough germination
conditions. But, the paver cells shouldn’t be overfilled.
For the best results, the
reinforced surface should be fully established first before using it
for heavy traffic.
When installing these pavers the
site should be prepared with adequate and sufficient drainage
capabilities. Otherwise, the performance of the reinforcement may be
compromised. It’s open cell structure works well in providing water
infiltration making it perfect for water source control. When
installed in parking bays, plastic markers are used so that the
pavers can fit into different parking orientations. If the parking
markers are to be installed permanently HDPE glue can be applied or
outdoor frame sealant to keep the markers in place.
BodPave 85 is aesthetically pleasing
and environmentally friendly. It is suitable for both cold and hot
climates because of its contraction/expansion capability. The pavers
can be connected incrementally to suit for obstructions and curves.
It is made from inert and non-toxic chemicals that are also found in
soils. This ground reinforcement is manufactured in United Kingdom
using black and green recycled HDPE.
BodPave 85 is a value-engineered
product that don’t yield negative environmental impact. This
product can be used with either grass or gravel on separate or
These pavers are just one of the many
grass and gravel paver solutions that Landscape Discount.com
provides. Rolled grass pavers are available for projects covering
over 96 square feet. Rolled gravel pavers are available for projects
exceeding the 600 sq. ft. size. Rolled grass and gravel pavers are
advantageous in larger project as the installation time is
significantly reduced. Rolled gravel pavers include a fused
geomembrane to prevent gravel from becoming lodged beneath the
material and creating inconsistencies in the surface height.
