Drainbase is innovative in the field of applications with artificial grass, combining the positive properties of artificial grass with the ability to buffer and infiltrate rainwater. Made of 100% recycled HDPE, the artificial grass sheets are also 100% recyclable. HDPE offers the ideal combination between a sturdy slab and high elasticity, even at cold temperatures. Drainbase forms a thermal buffer between the surface and the outside temperature, which improves the comfort of walking in freezing weather. Furthermore, the Drainbase tile consists of an inverted checkerboard pattern that guarantees good load distribution to the foundation on the one hand and a stable contact surface for the artificial grass on the other.
Drainbase Artificial Grass Slabs
Drainbase is an innovative, water-buffering tile system for perfectly permeable paving with artificial turf. Drainbase captures seeping rainwater, buffers it under the tile and then allows it to infiltrate into the ground. This greatly increases the durability of your artificial grass.

Drainbase mounting caps
With the specially provided fixing caps and accompanying screws, the artificial grass can be fixed in any location. Moreover, using the caps, one can easily attach the specially developed Drainbase borders to the artificial grass.
The sides of the artificial grass slabs can be finished with the optional Drainbase L-profile. This prevents lateral flushing of topsoil and prevents pests from getting under the slabs.
The ECCOborders Drainbase were specially designed to edging your artificial grass project tightly and easily. In addition, this border prevents curling of the grass edge.
Belgian quality product
Drainbase artificial turf sheets are manufactured from A to Z in Belgium. This allows us not only to make quick deliveries, but also to apply stringent quality parameters.
Optimal load distribution
The perfect ratio of contact surfaces at the top and bottom of the tile ensures optimal load distribution to the substrate. The perfect guarantee for an even artificial lawn without unevenness! Avoid expensive and complex foundation work and work time and cost-effectively!
High water buffering capacity
Drainbase buffers 30 liters of water per m². The solution for a perfectly permeable, green and ecologically sound pavement.
Unique connection system
The patented joints allow the boards to shrink and expand within their own dimensions, both during installation at cold and hot temperatures.
Thoughtful anti-slip feature
The sheet has 1010 anti-slip pins of 2 mm height at the top which ensure that the artificial grass stays nicely in place without damaging the backing of the artificial grass.
Thanks to the 9 flexible zones available to Drainbase, the slab can be applied to various substrates, always maintaining contact with the substrate.
Drainbase is suitable for applications with artificial turf:
- Garden and terrace
- Rooftop terraces
- Golf courses
It is possible to place (garden) furniture and plant pots on the Drainbase plates after installation.
Drainbase can be easily installed in gardens as well as on roof terraces. A step-by-step plan for the installation of the grids can be found in the video and text below.
STEP 1: Preparation
For regular applications (garden): Place a geotextile on the existing subgrade. Provide a leveling layer of min. 5 cm of crushed stone 0-2, 0-4 or 2-4 properly sealed on top.
STEP 2: Tile placement
Start against the edging and work row by row. Grind the tiles to size with an angle grinder where necessary.
STEP 3: Click system
The Drainbase tiles’ unique connection system allows the tiles to contract and expand within their own dimensions. It is hugely important that the tiles are clicked together correctly; this means halfway through the connection system. Clicking should be smooth by applying light pressure.
STEP 4: Even DRAINBASE carpet pad
To have an aesthetically pleasing result, it is important to have an even Drainbase underlayment.
STEP 5: Artificial turf rollout
Roll out the artificial turf, keeping in mind the “viewing direction” when placing it and adjust the position of the fibers accordingly. Cut to size where necessary.
STEP 6: Install mounting caps
Place attachment caps every 80 cm to 1 m or in places where you wish to additionally secure the artificial grass. When doing so, avoid the outermost row.
STEP 7: Screw artificial turf
Screw the artificial grass in place using the bit and screws provided.
STEP 8: Final result
Brush the artificial grass and enjoy the end result.
