Competitors grid manufactured from HDPE

Manufactured from LDPE which, coupled with unique design and robust safe interlocking system, enables ECORASTER to cope with HGVs and other industrial traffic.

When it comes to plastic pavers on the market, there is often a discussion about the difference in the type of plastic used to manufacture the paver. 

Most plastic pavers on the market are manufactured from what is known as a HDPE (high density polyethylene), which is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. High density polyethylene is a readily available plastic, therefore economical in cost. Although HDPE has a high tensile strength, the material is rigid, and in many applications the plastic becomes more brittle and is subject to stress fractures and cracking. 

ECORASTER is manufactured from LDPE (low density polyethylene). LDPE is a thermoplastic made from the monomer ethylene and is more difficult to get hold of, consequently a more expensive product. LDPE is less brittle and more flexible, therefore when used in a car parking situation,soft road shoulders,driveways can cope more effectively with the lateral stress movement created when being trafficked. 

With over 20 years of performance experience supported by proven 20 years of Factory Warrantee ECORASTER is also NATO Ceriffied.

 

How Good is Ecoraster

This video should help any our customers who may doubt the strength and durability of Ecoraster. Simulating an expeditionary environment at the Osprey test facility, Ecoraster E50 was put down on a dirt road without surface preparation or filling the cells. We used a Caterpillar D5C bulldozer, weighing in at over 9000kg. to simulate hard abuse by tracked vehicles on a temporary road. There was no structural and only some cosmetic damage. With proper installation per manufacturers specs, there should be no damage and the product is covered by a 20 yr. The shear test alone on this test was incredible.
