Drainbase Artificial Grass Tiles

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 is an innovative solution 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 tiles are also 100% recyclable. HDPE offers the ideal combination between a sturdy tile and high elasticity, even at cold temperatures. Drainbase forms a thermal buffer between the substrate and the outside temperature, improving walking comfort in freezing weather. Furthermore, the Drainbase tile consists of an inverted checkerboard pattern that guarantees good load distribution onto the foundation on the one hand and a stable contact surface for the artificial grass on the other.

Drainbase fixing caps

With the 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.

Drainbase L-Border

The sides of the Drainbase tiles can be finished with the optional Drainbase L-Border. This prevents sub-base from being washed away and vermin from getting under the tiles.

Drainbase Border

ECCOborders Drainbase were specifically to provide a neat and tidy finish to your artificial grass project. In addition, this border prevents curling of the grass edges.

Belgian quality

Drainbase tiles are manufactured in Belgium from start to finish. 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 onto the sub-base.
The perfect guarantee for an even artificial lawn!
Avoid expensive and complex levelling works and save time and money!

High water buffering capacity

Drainbase buffers 30 liters of water per m².
The solution for perfectly permeable, green and ecologically responsible paving.

Unique connection system

The joints allow the tiles to shrink and expand within their own dimensions, both during installation at cold and hot temperatures.

Anti-slip feature

The tile has 1010 anti-slip grip of 2 mm height at the top which ensure that the artificial grass stays in place without damaging the artificial grass.


Due to the 9 flexible zones, Drainbase can be installed across various sub-bases and will always maintain contact.

Drainbase is suitable for applications with artificial grass:

  • Garden and terrace
  • Rooftop terraces
  • Playgrounds
  • Golf courses

It is possible to place (garden) furniture and plant pots on Drainbase after installation.

Drainbase can be easily installed in gardens as well as on roof terraces. A step-by-step installation guide for the tiles can be found in the text and video below.

STEP 1: Preparation

For regular applications (garden): Place a geotextile onto the sub-base. Provide a leveling layer of min. 5 cm of crushed stone 0-2, 0-4 or 2-4 properly sealed on top.

STEP 2: Installation of the tiles

Start against at the edge and work row by row. Cut the tiles to size with an disk cutter if necessary.

STEP 3: Connecting system

The unique connection system allows the tiles to shrink and expand within their own dimensions. It is important that the tiles are connected correctly; this means halfway through the connection system. Clicking should be smooth by applying light pressure.

STEP 4: Level foundation

To have an aesthetically pleasing result, it is important to have an even foundation.

STEP 5: Artificial grass

Roll out the artificial grass, keeping in mind the “viewing direction” when placing it and adjust the position of the fibers accordingly. Cut to size where necessary.

STEP 6: Fixing caps

Place fixing caps every 80 cm to 1 m or in places where you wish to secure the artificial grass additionally. When doing so, avoid the outermost row.

STEP 7: Fixing of the artificial grass

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.
