Some of our main products:

Roofing Systems and Podium Decks:

  • Extensive Green Roofs - Extensive Green Roofs are the most common type and are light-weight, relatively low cost and low maintenance.
  • Intensive Green Roofs - Intensive Green Roofs, often referred to as ‘Roof Gardens’, can be viewed very much like a garden area and may be landscaped to include trees, lawns, flower beds and paved areas. 
  • ABG Blueroof - offers a new concept in the management of storm water. Changing weather patterns means rainfall events have become more extreme, challenging the way water is managed. ABG blueroof utilises the roof construction for the attenuation of storm water, releasing it at a controlled rate in the period following the storm. 
  • Biodiverse roof systems - characteristically consist of undulating growing media; typically 80mm – 150mm deep. This is planted with a variety of drought tolerant hardy plants or seed, such as wildflowers, sedums, grasses and perennials.
  • ABG Roofdrain - is designed for use in extensive green roof systems. It provides both drainage and attenuation in a convenient, lightweight and cost effective system.
  • ABG Deckdrain - is designed for use in podium decks and intensive green roof systems. It provides high strength drainage in a lightweight and cost effective system.

 Soil Erosion Control:

  • Advanced Turf Reinforced Grass – Netlon Advanced Turf System (Netlon ATS) is a high performance mesh-element reinforced natural grass rootzone system. This system provides an aesthetic SuDS compliant free-draining grassed surface, capable of sustaining heavy vehicle loadings.
  • ConcertinaWeb Geocell - ConcertinaWeb is a geocellular containment system which confines and strengthens infill materials and provides a cost effective solution for the reinforcement of roadside verges, preventing verge failure and material loss in the event of vehicles overrunning.
  • Erosamat Type 1 and 1A - are low cost biodegradable soil erosion control mats made from woven jute. They are used as an economic and environmentally friendly erosion control material for surfaces that will support plant growth.
  • Erosamat Type 2 - A heavy duty long life coir biodegradable soil erosion mat. Designed to prevent soil erosion and help establish new vegetation on soil and in situations of high rainfall run-off and watercourse water velocity.
  • Erosamat Type 3 - is a closely packed matrix of polypropylene fibres thermally bonded together to create a tough and flexible, long lasting erosion control mat for watercourse and high rainfall run off.
  • Erosamat Type 4 - Biodegradable matting available in both plain and preseeded variations for immediate surface protection against erosion.
  • Erosaweb geocell - is designed for the reinforcement of weak soils such as veneer layers of top soil and on steep slopes over the edge of ponds. Forms a revetment when filled with stone or concrete.

 Retaining Wall Systems:

  • Webwall - is a flexible retaining wall system that utilises geocell technology. Using Webwall geocell, green faced walls with near vertical faces can be built quickly and easily with the added benefit of using site won materials as fill Webwall is ideal as the facing to reinforced soil.

Permeable Paving Systems:

  • Truckcell™ - is a heavy-duty cellular porous paving system designed for intensive usage and high-load traffic applications. The permeable paver can be filled with topsoil and seeded or with gravel to provide a structural surface for HGV traffic, trucks, coaches and fork-lift trucks.
  • Netlon Advanced Turf System - (Netlon ATS) is a high performance mesh-element reinforced natural grass rootzone system. It provides an aesthetic, SuDS compliant free-draining grassed surface, capable of sustaining heavy vehicle loadings in occasional-use applications. Such as fire access, event and window cleaning.
  • Sudspave - is a permeable paving system of interlocking cellular plastic porous pavers designed for the stabilisation of trafficked grass or gravel surfaces. Used where a free-draining permeable gravel or grass car park, access road or driveway is required.
  • GrassPave Mesh - is a plastic mesh to strengthen existing grassed areas for light-vehicle use.

Geocomposite Drainage Systems:

  • Cavidrain - drainage geocomposite  - is a preformed cavity drainage system designed to relieve water penetration from basements and buried structures.
  • ABG Deckdrain - is a high performance geocomposite drainage system. Designed to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional structural drainage techniques, it provides high flow capacity and added protection to waterproofing.
  • Fildrain - drainage geocomposite - is a cost effective alternative to traditional stone drainage. It collects and channels liquids and gases to a carrier pipe for transportation to a suitable discharge point. Fildrain fin drain has many applications in highway and embankment drainage.
  • Piledrain - is designed as an effective solution to the treatment of joints between contiguous and secant bored concrete piles in basement and retaining wall construction.
  • Pozibreak - is designed specifically as a drainage void layer installed to protect the imported clean soils from the rise of contaminated ground through capillary action, and as a salt barrier where saline groundwater and surface water is to be separated.
  • Pozidrain - drainage geocomposite - is a wide-width preformed drainage and gas venting solution, providing a sustainable, environmental alternative to traditional filter stone drainage layers. Used extensively for landfill and contaminated land drainage on slopes and basal areas to remove water, liquids and gas quickly & efficiently.

Truckcell 100 - Grass
The Truckcell 100 system consists of environmentally friendly cellular paver units which facilitate a SuDS solution by returning stormwater to the natural water table. Manufactured from recycled plastic, the cellular 600x400x100mm units weigh only 12kgs each, well within manual handling limits, ensuring much speedier installation than concrete alternatives. Installed on a free draining stone subbase, the system is proven to withstand regular and frequent overrun by HGVs, forklift trucks and large coaches and is used to provide crane pads on wind farms. Unlike cellular concrete blocks, Truckcell pavers do not crack or fracture under stress. The cells can be filled with gravel or grass, according to the application and where a grass finish is required, grass establishes and is sustained much more successfully in Truckcell  than in concrete units. Truckcell 100 features an anti skid finish for severe gradient applications.

Webwall - Gravity
The Webwall system consists of  horizontal layers of HDPE panels filled and placed on top of one another to form the retaining wall structure.   Cost savings over traditional retaining wall construction are possible because foundations are seldom required  and the wall is designed to use site arising material as backfill thus saving disposal and importation of materials.   Webwall can be used to construct unreinforced (gravity) walls up to heights of 3 metres depending on the loading, ground conditions and backfill material. When reinforced with ABG Geogrids much greater heights are possible.   Cells at the front face are filled with topsoil and then seeded or planted to create a vegetated finish. Planting is essential for the long term durability of the Webwall. Design support is available from ABG's in-house engineering team.

ABG LTD - Best Practice For Contaminated Land

March 2019

Best Practice For Contaminated Land

In March 2019 ABGs Goran Erak was invited to be part of the panel at the Environmental Industries Commision round table event "Towards Best Practice in Contaminated Land".

The event was hosted at the AECOM Glasgow office, with the aim of bringing together companies across the process of land remediation, from contract to delivery, and facilitate an open and productive discussion on how policy is impacting upon the contaminated land remediation sector, and what would allow delivery of more cost-efficient, higher quality remediation solutions. Goran led the discussion around using advanced geosynthetic solutions for land remediation.

If you would like to know more about how geosynthetics such as Pozidrain can mitigate the residual risk when the viability of remedial methods is no longer cost effective, contact us to book a seminar for your office.

No More Muddy Boots With Breakfast!

February 2019

The Red Lion Truck Stop based at Weedon in Northamptonshire is a very popular place with truck drivers as it offers excellent facilities and food.

However, this success meant the parking surface had deteriorated after many years of heavy traffic. Drivers had complained about the "roller coaster ride" in the parking area, not enough space to accomodate all the vehicle, and muddy boots making floors in the restaurant area and driver cabs dirty.


The owners decided as part of a planned expansion to invest in improving the running surface. ABG were invited to assess the site and propose a solution which improved the surface and addressed problematic soft spots while still allowing surface water to infiltrate thus avoiding the need for other SuDS attenuation measures. Following a site visit by Phil Allen, our Permeable Paving Technical Manager, and Richard Heritage, one of our Geotechnical Engineers, we developed a permeable paving solution incorporating Truckcell and Gridtex


Truckcell is a heavy duty permeable paving system which is robust yet lightweight which makes it fast and easy to install. It is able to withstand the turning, braking and loading forces applied by HGV manoeuvres. Truckcell is manufactured from recycled plastic, and is fully recyclable at the end of its life.

Gridtex is a high performance stabilisation geotextile which provides both separation and stabilisation for soft soil areas and at the same time reducing aggregate layers and related costs.

An opportunity arose at short notice for the work on the 8,000 sq metre area to be completed during the Christmas holiday period. Despite the short notice ABG were able to supply all the material required, and the surfacing work was completed without affecting other phases of the expansion and improvments, which meant Red Lion customers suffered minimal disruption.

The expanded and improved area accommodates 170 HGVs on a clean and dry smooth surface, allowing drivers to access the excellent facilites and eat the famous Red Lion breakfast without getting muddy boots all over their cab.
