An increase in hard-surfaced areas means that sewer systems have to process increasingly larger peak quantities of waste water due to the rapid drainage of rainwater. As a result, the sewers are subjected to a heavy hydraulic load which could lead to flooding. In addition, open ditches have disappeared or been re-laid (straightened) in many places in Flanders as a result of which a considerable buffer volume has been lost. Nidagravel is a honeycomb gravel stabilizer in an extruded polypropylene panel. Ideal for creating paths suitable for both pedestrians and vehicles (heavy or light). The panel is made with fully-welded geotextile. The Nidagravel panel measures 240x120 cm with welded geotextile to prevent the gravel from disappearing into the ground and to prevent weeds and grass from growing.There are two thicknesses available: 3 cm, with 300 tonne pressure resistance, or 4 cm thick with 400 tonne pressure resistance. The panel is filled with 4 or 5 cm of gravel depending on the thickness used, so that the panel is not visible. It's 100 % water-permeable surface, no puddles form and no drainage system is required, it's is recyclable and UV and frost resistant;
