Having the ability of withstanding and deflecting up to 1,000 tonnes per square meter (100 tons/Sq.Ft.) means GridForce is versatile in virtually any construction project. From pavement structures to cemetery monuments, GridForce geocells are up to the task. The premium recycled plastic (LDPE) used to make our products means you’re getting premium performance the moment you’ve installed it— temporarily or permanently.
Ground reinforcement happens as a result of the superior cellular confinement you get when using GridForce 3D geocells. With a range of 5 different models and three different thicknesses (30mm, 40mm and 50mm), you’re sure to find the best product for your project. All models have a distinct quality and advantage for certain projects. If you need help finding the right grid, we’re happy to assist you.
Thanks to its unique abilities of deflecting weight and confining soil, GridForce geocells can typically reduce the amount of excavating required for a project, by a lot. You’ll also reduce the time and money you spend on each project by installing GridForce quickly with the easy and effective lug-and-slot attachment.
Depending on the type of soil encountered on the site, our go-to engineer Phil Perzia can consult on your project and help you maximize the performance of your GridForce system. Whether you’re after ground reinforcement, erosion control or building a solid permeable structure(regardless of the finishing surface), we want to help!
Permeability is one of our most passionate subjects here at IOWAT GROUP INC.
GridForce was originally designed in the early 1990’s as a strong permeable alternative to weak asphalt and expensive concrete. Millions of square feet have now been installed across the planet because of its ability to support tremendous amounts of weight and because we’re realizing more and more how important it is to deal with stormwater immediately where it lands.
GridForce is more than 90% open area, and when filled with clean/clear crushed stone is one of the most permeable surfaces you can invest in today. To make it even better for the environment, our geocells are made from strong recycled plastics(LDPE) and are fully recyclable as well.
Other grids claim to be made from recycled plastic, but it’s important to know which plastic they are composed of specifically. HDPE grids tend to be stiff and brittle, especially in low temperatures.
GridForce geocells are made from a special blend of plastic exclusively, called Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE). LDPE plastic is found in heavy-duty plastic bags. the advantage of using this plastic specifically is because it remains malleable in both extreme cold and warm weather.
Another unique aspect that makes GridForce the premium geocell, is the manufacturing method called injection moulding. This is a meticulous and slightly more lengthy manufacturing method that results in you getting a more durable grid. In fact, we’re so confident in how well GridForce is made, that we include a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty* with your purchase.
