Launched in 2015, X-Grid has established itself as one of the most well-respected and trusted products in the groundworks, construction and landscaping sectors, as well as proving highly popular in the domestic market, used as a base for garden buildings, hot tubs and gravel driveways.

Designed and manufactured in Yorkshire from 100% recycled plastic, X-Grid has been used in dozens of ways by thousands of contractors on tens of thousands of projects, from the nuclear plant extension project at Sizewell B to being featured on BBC’s Garden Rescue show and even as an aesthetic product at the Grand Designs Live exhibition.

GCL Products Limited of Chester eld, Derbyshire are incredibly proud to announce that X-Grid is the rst product of its type to be awarded the Made in Britain mark,which certifies that the product has been UK-made and helps to solidify its eco-centric credentials.

X-Grid demonstrates ant-like capabilities, weighing only 5kg per square metre and yet is independently proven capable of withstanding loads of over 420 tonnes per mÇ, supporting 84,000 times its own weight! Manufactured entirely from 100% recycled plastic waste, eligible for recycling again at the end of its natural life and its low miles travelled factor make X-Grid one of the most eco-conscious products available in the ground reinforcement sector. It is often used in sustainable drainage (SuDS) solutions to help reduce surface water flooding, an issue which is more regularly seen in recent years due to the gradual but damaging e ects of climate change. Easily installed, even as a DIY product, makes X-Grid a fantastic way for anyone to make a eco-friendly di erence to their home, o ce or construction project. The highly coveted Made in Britain marque is awarded to products which can demonstrate and evidence the origins of manufacture and helps to set domestically manufactured products apart, giving consumers peace of mind that goods carrying the marque have been produced to high standards and are, indeed, made in Britain.

Guy Wall, head of marketing for GCL Products Limited said: “X-Grid has already enjoyed several years in the limelight thanks to its unrivalled strength, its eco-friendly credentials and its versatility. We have seen the UK market flooded with cheaply made imported products, some of which have even tried to copy our unique design. The “Made in Britain” marque will help to set us apart in the market and give our customers assurances to the quality and traceability of this incredible product.
