PRODUCT Tenax GP-Flex 1800
GP-Flex® has been tested for slip resistance to BS 7976-2 and when tested alongside other slip resistant grass protection meshes, GP-Flex® showed an improvement of over 33% in comparison.
GP-Flex® is manufactured using a unique method of extrusion (patent pending), enabling the incorporation of a slip resistant surface. In addition, by re-designing the profile, TENAX has made the mesh more flexible, enabling quicker installation.
THE PROBLEMCastle Hill Cider recently built a brand new cidery on site! Though this was a wonderful addition, the site was now left with insufficient parking for the increase of visitors to this cidery and tasting room nearby.
After discovering the GPFlex 1800 technology, the cidery purchased 36 rolls from their local distributor, Benner’s Gardens. Their resourceful staff was able to efficiently install the rolls with a minimal amount of tools required.
As a result, Castle Hill Cider was able to add 15,919.2 square feet (just over 1/3 of an acre) of permanent visitor parking for their new cidery and tasting room.
