Step 2, The ease of installing HoofGrid:
The individual plates are pre-assembled in convenient 12-plate segments, allowing a quick and easy installation.
At this point, the benefits of the grid-system become apparent, because the individual plates are firmly connected. During the installation process, each segment is dropped into place next to the previous segment, using a simple push with the foot to lock it into the patented safety grid-locking system.
Starting at one corner, the pre-assembled HoofGrid
plates are easily being installed.
It is also possible to separate the 12-plate segments, if there is not enough space to fill an entire row.
Once the installation process is complete -
and prior to filling with the top layer -
the HoofGrid is riddled, pressing it into the soil.
Simply drop each segment into position
applying foot-pressure to snap them into place.
NOTE: Please use a sufficiently sized riddling plate - such as one used for road construction - to compress the grid into place.
No additional protective liner is necessary: the iron riddling plate may be may be applied directly on top of the HoofGrid.
