Tufftrack Grass and Gravel Pavers are a turf reinforcement system designed to stabilize soil and transfer vehicle weight while protecting the root system of grass. Tufftrack is manufactured in rigid 24" square panels from 100% recycled HDPE.
Tufftrack is rugged enough to support firetrucks and heavy construction vehicles due to its high compressive strength. These pavers provide a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing solution for areas of heavy traffic that might otherwise be covered with traditional asphalt or concrete.
New Features and Benefits
The new NDS Tufftrack Pavers have three innovative features that distinguish it from the competitors: easy-to-install clips allow for quick installation, domed drainage outlets promote free movement of water, and a webbed cell design makes it compatible for both grass and gravel applications.
New Clip Design: The new Tufftrack paver panels feature a sturdy clip designed to make top-down installation easy. Simply place the male clips of one panel onto the female clips of the adjacent panel and push down to lock in place. This new clip design cuts installation time in half when compared to the old model. Additionally, the new clip design allows for both a traditional square application and an offset configuration for increased shear strength. The traditional square application allows for flexibility when being used on hillsides and the offset configuration prevents the pavers from separating when under stress from a heavy load from, for example, a fire truck.
Webbed Cell Design: The new NDS Tufftrack is designed with a webbed cell that keeps fill material in place, preventing gravel from slipping under the paver and lifting the cells while still creating an environment that allows for root growth through the cell. This makes the Tufftrack paver ideal for both grass and gravel applications. The webbed cell design features support ribs that allow gravel 3/8" and larger to be used as the infill material without requiring extra material to keep the filler in place. Additionally, the new webbed design provides stability for installation on slopes allowing stakes to be driven through the ribs.
Domed Drainage Outlets: The unique domed drainage holes in the cell wall of the New Tufftrack paver allow for lateral movement of water and nutrients. This feature allows water to drain downwards and laterally making it ideal for use on rooftop gardens and sports fields where rapid drainage is important.
Recommended Applications: Fire lanes, emergency vehicle access roads, truck maintenance and equipment yards, construction entrance soil stabilization, truck & cart wash-down areas, RV & boat access and parking, residential driveways, parking lots, overflow parking lots, roadways shoulders, runoff areas, equestrian parks, and erosion control.
Tufftrack provides a permeable surface that eliminates or reduces stormwater runoff.
The design of Tufftrack allows for increased lateral movement of water and nutrients.
Stormwater filters naturally through subsurface, reducing pollutants.
The Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect is mitigated as grass does not absorb as much heat energy as traditional hardscapes
Pavers are made of 100% recycled plastic
Tufftrack has a high compressive strength which is currently undergoing third party testing.
Unique tongue-and-groove clips are extremely easy to install, cutting installation time in half and reducing labor costs.
The reinforced grass root zone is protected by a grid work of hexagonal cells, allowing for healthy grass growth under strenuous conditions.
Tufftrack reduces demands put on landscape drainage system.
Utilizing Tufftrack is less expensive to maintain over time than traditional hardscaping
Tufftrack provides a more pleasing aesthetic than traditional hardscaping
Tufftrack can be used for grass and gravel applications due to its webbed cell design.
