HEAVY DUTY GROUND STABILISING SLABS
The slabs interlink securely and require no substructure, ensuring quick and easy installation of a totally stable slabbed area, anywhere that mud is a problem. They will not sink!
ALWAYS ADAPTABLE TO YOUR NEEDS
Our slabs stay on top of the mud, and can be lifted and moved elsewhere at any time allowing you to change and adapt your mud-free areas year on year. You aren’t burying your investment.
MINIMAL GROUND PREPARATION
Just level the area (fill potholes, remove big stones) and lay the Mudcontrol slabs. No substrate is required to achieve a firm surface, just slot our slabs together to create stability in minutes, even on top of sloppy mud!
HIGHLY DURABLE AND VERY STRONG
The slabs weigh 28 kg per square metre (7 kg per slab) and can withstand more than 60 tonnes of compression, which, unlike grass mats, makes them ideal for even the heaviest of farm traffic.
DESIGNED TO BE SLIP RESISTANT
The closed side of the Mudcontrol system is stamped with two types of nub. The combined pattern, especially when topped with sand, provides high slip resistance under wet conditions, for people and animals.
ENABLE NATURAL SURFACE DRAINAGE
The securely interlinking slabs allow the natural drainage of the surface, allowing grass to recover and preventing the ground underneath from being churned up or compacted due to heavy use.

Why aren't your delivery costs on the website?
The cost per pallet varies depending on the delivery postcode. It also varies a tiny bit depending on the weight of the pallet. So we do a ‘pallet preparation and delivery’ quotation individually for every enquiry.

INSTALLING YOUR MUDCONTROL SLABS
Our quick guide is below, but for full installation instructions, top tips and videos, please visit our INSTALLATION PAGE.
FITTING AND CUTTING
The second row of slabs should be staggered against the first by using a half grid at the beginning. Slabs can be easily cut with a saw.
Mudcontrol slabs are easily cut with a hand saw or circular saw. When using any power tool, please follow the power tool manufacturer’s recommended best practice.
Level the ground by flattening bumps, removing rocks and filling holes. Lay down the first row of Mudcontrol slabs across the full length of the area to be covered.
When laying Mudcontrol slabs, a crowbar or shovel can give helpful leverage - but do not apply too much force. The slabs should fit loosely together to avoid tension during hot or cold weather.
Lay down the second row of slabs after the first row has been done. Remember to leave a 1/4” (0.5 cm) expansion gap.
Our Mudcontrol slabs make it easy to cover even large areas relatively quickly. Although the grids adapt well to uneven ground, level ground gets the best results.
It is best to cover exposed locating tabs to avoid damage from movement over the leading edge, this can be done with soil, sand or a similar medium.
A substrate like sand can be used to level the slabs out. Even after installation, substrate can fill gaps and dips by using a leverage action - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjpZ_0XiyvA
We recommend adding AT LEAST 1 bulk bag of sand (quarried sharp sand is our preference) per pallet of slabs, more if you want it to be deep enough for rolling, lying down, and playing on. It’s money well spent. Sharp sand won’t wash away as quickly as fine/soft sand, as the particles are rougher and bigger/heavier.
Once the slabs have been laid out, cover with sand or another water-permeable material. If you are using the slabs for livestock use, please use washed fine/soft sand or QUARRIED SHARP SAND - visit our SAND INFORMATION page for more info.
REMOVING AND RE-LAYING THE SLABS
Care should be taken when lifting the slabs for re-use. By far the best way to do this is by lifting the leading edge by about 15cm (6 inches) one row at-a-time and pull the lifted row away from the connecting row horizontally. Lifting the slabs by more than 15 degrees can cause undue stress on the locating tabs and cause them to break, which will not generally be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
