Step 4Grids should be overfilled, so that the honeycomb is buried. Depending on aggregate size overfill will range from 10mm-20mm. For StablePAVE TRADE 30 and StablePATH ECO, gravel demand will be 65kg/m2. For StableTRADE 40 and StablepAVE HD, 75kg/m2 of gravel will be required.
Laying FormatMost of our panels interlock with each adjacent segment in a manner that prevents uplifts from segment to segment, thereby eliminating raising edges that cause pedestrians to trip.
Step 1The panels are placed on the prepared foundation / sub base (see specification). Place the first section in position and on the intended line of fixing.
Step 2Present the next section to the first and click them together. (Note: For StablePAVE HD and StableGRASS MAXI Interconnect for full interlock).
Step 3Segments can be cut using a handsaw, jigsaw or band saw to fit the area intended.
Additional NotesAfter gravel fill has been placed the finished surface should receive a single pass with a plate vibrator, to accelerate settlement and any low spots noted topped up. Finally the finished surface should receive a mist soak through with a hose pipe, to remove any dusting from the aggregate. When installing on slopes, begin the laying from the lower end of the slope which should have a kerb. If being used for vehicular traffic, ensure that the edge where the vehicles run onto the stabilisation panels is flush with adjacent ground or pavement and has a kerb. For pedestrian use, edging is not essential but is does give a good finish to the area.
Kerb stones may also be necessary along the side of an installation where regular vehicular use is planned to prevent lateral movement.
