In order to achieve a long-lasting and
stable paving, GRAVELFIX must be laid starting from a
professionally created foundation.
1) Position and anchor the edgings to define the
perimeter of the construction, contain the surface
gravel and protect the outer edges of GRAVELFIX from
2) Compact the bottom of the area to make it even
and avoid sinkings. It is recommended to use a
final layer of well-pressed sand or fine gravels to
create a homogeneous, solid and stable base.
3) Lay the Gravelfix panels on the surface without any
anchoring, it is the weight of the gravel itself that
keeps the grids firmly on the ground. The panels
can be easily adapted to the shape of the project
by cutting them with a knife or simply by scissors.
4) Fill the grates with chippings of your choice from
the recommended sizes between 5 mm and 12
mm. Any decorative gravel and pebble is ideal for
the construction of pedestrian and cycle paths,
while for vehicular use it is mandatory to use
aggregates with higher hardness such as granite,
porphyry, basalt and generally aggregate products
for making asphalt in order to avoid the excessive
fragmentation of the aggregate itself.
5) Evenly fill the
panels to form a layer of maximum 2 cm above
the Gravelfix. As the final step, it is recommended
to use a wheel paver in order to evenly press the
surface, in any case it will settle with time.
6) Once the cells are filled, the work is completed and
the surface will be immediately passable. The use
of pebbles is recommended in spaces frequented
by children to make the surface less abrasive
compared to the gravels.
