ABOUT DIAMOND GRID

Diamond Grid literally toughens your rural terrain by eliminating muddy areas on your property.

Suitable for driveways, feed & water troughs, stable floors, muddy areas, arenas, shed floors and day yards.

Diamond Grid reduces infrastructure costs and eliminates ongoing maintenance expenses.

  • Save up to 40% on the cost of concrete and asphalt surfaces
  • Resolve problems with muddy areas on farms that slow down production and create extra costs
  • Cost saving alternative to traditional surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, paving, etc.
  • DIY installation allows quick install without having to rely on contractors
  • Used throughout Australia, USA, Latin America, Mexico and Canada by leading thoroughbred studs, cattle stations/ranches,
  • National Parks, commercial racecourses, export cattle yards, hobby farmers, commercial and private equestrian centers and more.
“ DIAMOND GRID IS AN EASY SOLUTION AND THEY SAVED US OVER $300 PER TROUGH COMPARED TO CEMENTING THE PADS. AND IF WE EVER NEED TO MOVE A TROUGH, WE CAN PULL THE GRIDS UP AND MOVE THEM TO THE NEXT SITE.”
CSIRO ANIMAL, FOOD AND HEALTH SCIENCES, QLD
“ WE’VE FOUND DIAMOND GRID TO BE GREAT UNDERFOOT FOR THE BULLS IN THE FEED PADS. WE FOUND THE BULLS DIDN’T GET SORE FEET AND IT IS BETTER UNDERFOOT THAN CONCRETE, EASY TO INSTALL AND VERY COST EFFICIENT.”.
ANVIL ANGUS FROM ACHERON, VIC

APPLICATIONS

HORSE WALKERS

End mud and rutting problems by increasing soil stability and improving drainage. Diamond Grid stabilizes the ground to give better traction while offering superior impact resistance. Fill with wide range of materials (e.g. sand, gravel, soil and grass).

SHED FLOORS

Much cheaper than concrete, Diamond Grid is a perfect solution for shed flooring. The grids are ideal for storage of equipment and vehicles. Diamond Grid’s easy locking system is simple to install and can be moved if you decide to re-locate your shed.

CATTLE YARDS

Diamond Grid can be used to resurface a whole cattle yard, or just the muddy corners and gateways. The most common process with cattle yards is to fill the grids with 1/4" drainage gravel and then cover with sand or saw dust.

STABLE FLOORS

A self-draining stable flooring solution that reduces your ongoing bedding costs. The horses cannot dig holes in the flooring and the flooring cannot turn to mud.

FEED & WATER TROUGHS

The areas around water and feed troughs are always wet and muddy and Diamond Grid solves the problem by creating a well drained solid surface for both horse and human.

CREEK CROSSINGS

Installing Diamond Grid over creek crossings stops the roadbase and gravel from eroding away, creating a permanent solution to crossing for trucks and other vehicles.

DAY YARDS

Diamond Grid can be used to resurface a whole paddock or yard, or just the muddy corners and gateways. The most common process with day yards is to fill the grids with 1/4" drainage gravel and then cover with saw dust or sand.

DRIVEWAYS

The unique design of Diamond Grid allows you to build attractive driveways with decorative pebbles by stabilizing the fill so that it does not migrate, even in areas subject to constant traffic or repeat wheel tracking and turning. The product is also effective in ensuring that different fills do not mix together, erode or wash away.

DRAINS

Deep drains and trenches are protected by the grids, which support the structure of the drain and allow the water to flow through without washing away the sides of the drain. The grids are also suitable for shallow drains and trenches which are covered with grasses and small plants. The grids support the root structures while still effectively allowing the water to flow through..

Installation                                                                 See below – DIY or Installer

The Diamond Grid interlocking system is robust and easy to install.

Our classic grid size is suitable for most rural and domestic applications. Great for smaller surface areas that require stabilization and reinforcement. Highly recommended for feed & water troughs, stable floors,muddy areas, day yards. pathways, drains, driveways,golf cart tracks, boat ramps and anywhere needing toughening up on your property or workplace.

Made from 100% recycled, UV treated polypropylene, Diamond Grid is ecologically friendly and highly durable. The product has been load tested by the Facility of Engineering and Surveying Centre of Excellence in Engineered Fibre Composites, University of Southern Queensland and found to withstand loads in excess of 300 tonnes per square metre when empty or over 1000 tonnes per square metre when filled.

CONCRETE REINFORCEMENT

Concrete costs can be reduced by up to 40% when using Diamond Grid as the reinforcement structure, as concrete depth required is only 40 mm. Considerable savings can be made on concrete requirements and labor.

CASE STUDIES

FEED & WATER TROUGHS


THE PROBLEM

The CSIRO were spending over $1000 on trough pads in the past to ensure that the area on the ground outside the troughs wasn’t deteriorating and making holes so the calves couldn’t reach the water. This can cause calves to die of thirst. The Diamond Grids saved the CSIRO over $300 per trough pad and they also saved up to 60% on the installation time versus concrete trough pads.

THE SOLUTION

  • The area was levelled
  • Diamond Grids were laid over the area
  • The grids were filled to the top surface of the grid with 10 mm Gravel.

HORSE STABLES

THE PROBLEM

The Murwillumbah RDA had some issues with their horse stables becoming very swampy from some underground springs, creating very muddy horse stables. With the RDA being a charity, they were looking for a cost effective solution to stable flooring.

THE SOLUTION

  • Geo Fabric was laid over the muddy surface
  • 4″ of sand was then spread over the fabric and levelled.
  • Diamond Grids laid
  • Sand filled into grids and also an extra 3″over the top of the grids for the horses to stand and lay on

FEED TROUGH PADS

THE PROBLEM

In the past Anvil Angus have installed Feed Troughs without any pads and have spent a lot of time and money carting in soil and gravel every few months so that  the calves can reach the troughs. Each time they have had to go through this process cost them 50% of the price that installing Diamond Grids as a permanent solution costs, meaning that they pay for themselves within 6 months.

THE SOLUTION

  • The area was levelled
  • Diamond Grids were laid over the area
  • The grids were filled to the top surface of the grid with 3/8″ Gravel.
