CPD's & TRAINING
CPD’s | We have a vast number of CPD sessions focused on solutions our products offer to a host of common landscaping problems.
TRAINING | Here at CORE LP we are focused on providing unrivalled installation training to landscapers, ground-workers & the construction industry. We will also assist with the specification process and give guidance on product suitability.
CONSULTATION | We also offer a consultation service for larger projects. We have a dedicated technical support team with years of on-site experience who can assist with all aspects of project planning, specification and installation.
High Load Bearing
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.
Attached High Quality Membrane
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.
Gravel Line Marking made easy…Lines, shapes, even messages can be made. CORE Markers fit snugly into the CORE Drive panels and are made to withstand all types of traffic and weather conditions.
What about at night? We went a step further and created a glow-in-the-dark cap for the markers that lights up at night. CORE Marker is available in white or with a phosphorescent glow-in-the-dark cap.
Black vs White
CORE Landscape Products create both black and white grids, as you can see from the image, using a light aggregate over a black grid or a dark aggregate over a white grid makes very little difference visually. Our Black grid is made from 100% recycled polypropylene (PP). Our white grid is made from 100% virgin polypropylene (PP), which is fully recyclable… So both grids have good green credentials.
So why the choice?
Both gravel cells have the same test results for vertical load bearing and can therefore take the same vehicular traffic on a flat surface. However, the white cells are better suited to sloping driveways as they are slightly more flexible. The cell wall of the white grid can withstand a greater force applied horizontally making it more capable of supporting the angled load exerted by a vehicle as it makes its way up an incline. Both our black and white driveway grids are SUDS compliant and DDA complaint.
