Case Studies

Remedial works at Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue kennels

Immediately outside the kennels is a fenced, grassy slope that comes down to the concrete path beside the kennels.

The slope also used to become waterlogged in the winter, as there was no ultimate drainage due to the low wall splitting the grass and the concrete path. Four years ago we donated, and laid a series...

What to do when your customers are pigs

We were very pleased to be asked to carry out another large installation using our most popular M52LO honeycomb grass mats. Very similar to the last project, but this time just outside Guildford in Surrey. We needed 100 of the grass mats, 3 rolls of the M9 stabilisation mesh, 300 pins and 600 cable ties. As the installation was a fair way from where we could park the van, Charlie and I were very happy when a gentleman with a quad bike and trailer turned...

EVA Stable Mats fit to order for the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton

The Ebony Horse Club in Brixton, South London, is a community riding centre in one of the country’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods.

Mad about Dogs are mad about our interlocking mats

They had a number of samples and quotes for children’s play area mats, but these proved unfit for purpose or wildly expensive. Mad About Dogs then approached us. They wanted the right product, costed to cover a prescribed area and at a cost equal...

Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue

No more cut paws or nasty bald patches anywhere and NO MUD either. The last being most important because the kennels and runs are spotless. The dog pictured, is lying on a carpet of lush grass after the recent very heavy rains. The honeycomb mats prevented any depredation...
