Fall is Around the Corner | The Ecoraster Grid System Ensures the Outdoors Remain Accessible to All
Fall is around the corner! The crisper temperatures and changing colors have people flocking outdoors eager to take advantage of and appreciate all the natural beauty the country has to offer.
Municipalities across North America are mindful, supportive and encouraging of ensuring the outdoors is accessible to all. Individuals with mobility challenges often find existing nature paths and attractions challenging due to the uneven terrain and surfacing materials.
Loose gravel, often a surface of choice for low impact paths and trails, is often troublesome to navigate when strollers, crutches and wheelchairs are needed. It is also problematic for those that have balance or mobility issues. The Ecoraster grid system is easily installed and solves accessibility problems immediately, especially important when designing areas for all demographics.
LID Permeable Paving | The Ecoraster System Eliminates Surface Drainage Challenges
The cells within the grid ensure that the aggregate or fill is contained, eliminating the risk of migration and compaction. The ground is kept level and stable. Ecoraster eliminates surface drainage challenges. Puddling and pooling on the surface are greatly reduced keeping the pathway slip free. Ecoraster can be easily transported to remote locations making it a perfect solution for troublesome areas mid path. It can also be installed for erosion control, tree root protection and emergency vehicle access if needed.
The compact segment size of the individual pieces allows small areas to be rehabilitated, enabling even small portions of existing pathway systems to become accessible and usable by all. Ecoraster does not have to be installed as an “all or nothing” product and is often incorporated into projects in stages as budget allows.
