HanseGrand paths covers
                       …for paths and squares


HanseGrand path covers stand out for their long stability. As the path covers can be produced without free lime and loams, they can be kept in good conditions and/or repairs. Patchy renewals of the cover are no longer visible after a short time.


Normal / regular care measures:

After the winter, if and when required, use smoothing mat or similar, slightly loosen / rabble rake, re-plane and re-compact in earth-moist condition. Small unevennesses evenout by themselves in most cases by use. (In case of a lack of compaction: statically roller the cover in earth-moist condition – most suitably using a tandem roller with a weight of approx. 800 to 2,000 kg.)

Excessively loose grain:

Use an iron rake or rabble rake and loosen the earth-moist cover sheet up to a depth of about 3 cm; re-establish the grain mix, then flatten and roll in earth-moist condition. For rolling, the cover should be moist down to a depth of at least 25 mm, Leaves and moss formation as well as refuse should be removed from the cover beforehand (by using a rake or cylinder mower, for example); however, let the loose chippings lying, please (thus do not remove with a broom!). If possible, abstain from using a leaf blower as a surface demixing cannot be ruled out. Growth of weeds should be removed as early as possible including roots (path cover has to be moist). Loose grains have to be re-planed afterwards and have to be compacted.


Snow clearing:

Exercise caution as in all water-bound path covers. Set the snow blade 1 to 2 cm above the cover surface in float position. Salt can be applied.


In case of washout / water gutters:

In case of inclined surfaces, inspection rounds should be carried out after very heavy rainfalls. If washouts / gutters can be recognised: repair immediately (loosen, plane recompact). Small-area upgrading work: In earth-moist condition, slightly roughen the damaged path cover down to a depth of up to 3 cm (using an iron rake or a rabble rake cross-wise, for example). The subjacent base layer must not be affected in the process! Level / plane the cover layer (if and when necessary use identical material to level out holes / defects). Subsequently slightly pre-compact statically. Use a sprinkler or fine-jet soft nozzle / jet to soak with water. After the cover layer is halfway dry (earthmoist condition, which as a rule occurs after approx. 3 to 24 h after soaking with water), roller the surface statically.


Tip: If the topmost layer dries too fast due to high solar irradiation, it should be lightly moistened once again directly before rolling so that a better integration of the upper material is achieved.
