DIY Parking Pad Kit
Create your own 215 square foot (9' x 24') durable parking pad for all cars, pickup trucks, RV's, and boats. Our geocells are made of 100% virgin HDPE (high density polyethylene). HDPE is well-known to be a material that will not easily break down. Some studies show that HDPE only starts to break down after 100,000 years.
The amazing strength of the 4" cell is H10 rated with a robust load bearing capacity of vehicles up to 40,000 lbs. Geocells confine gravel and prevent lateral movement away from the applied load; thereby creating a solid foundation that will never become rutted. The LSG series Load Support Grid acts as a large mat, spreading the load over an extended area while increasing the load bearing capacity of the pavement surface. Installation is so easy! Kit includes everything you need except for infill materials. Simply spread out the provided DuPont brand SF-40 non-woven geotextile fabric. This is a barrier that keeps the infill in the cells and prevents it from migrating down into the subgrade. Expand the LSG Load Support Grid on top of fabric. Stake down the grid with provided 18" high rebar J hooks made of 1/2" rebar, fill cells with infill materials (not included), compact, and overfill with same infill materials by 1 - 2" as a wearing course on top. Once installed, you can drive on it immediately. Filling the cells with ¾” clean, angular stone results in a 100% permeable pavement which allows water to pass through it and naturally seep back into the earth's aquifers. This design would meet any storm water management requirements. Other infill options are crushed stone or sand which compact well but are not permeable. Grid can be cut and connected to fit your area if it is shaped differently from 9' x 24'.
