that is, the following Domain Name was purchased by a disingenuous and disreputable entity, with the specific intention of misleading American Consumers and/or our international clients.
www.HOOF-GRID.COM: Intentionally redirects to a web page touting a low quality, rigid, knockoff-of-a-knockoff -of-a-knockoff, manufactured in the USA, sigh.
This "other geogrid" is not internationally considered to be relevant to equine or agricultural footing and flooring products or engineering. It simply is not up to the task ...
The knockoff product viewed at the above Domain Name "www.hoof-grid.com" ...
(i) is NOT able to directly support any traffic, whether equine or agricultural/livestock or vehicular,
as is the real HoofGrid, pictured at right »
(ii) without fracturing.
Do not be misled: "compressive strength" or "load-bearing capacity" are highly irrelevant factors when determining expected lifespans of traffic surfaces of any type.
The relevant factors are:
flexibility + resistance to fracture + tensile strength + max. shearing loads + strength of the connectors
Please note: The above web site (Domain Name www.hoof-grid.com) will redirect to, or has in the past redirected to, an intentionally deceptive and misleadingly named web site, offering just one more of the dozens of knockoffs worldwide.
Most of these "Five Dollar Rolexes" (low quality knockoffs/replicas) are manufactured in Asia on in Eastern Europe. Unfortunately, a handful are now being manufactured in the USA.

HoofGrid™ has been applied for horse/equine, agricultural/livestock, and commercial uses for decades!
In the highest-reputation equestrian facilities in the world,
under the most extreme usage conditions (including dairy and cattle operations),
without deconstructing, fracturing, decomposing, or decaying, ever!
Expected lifespan, DIN-certified by TUV: indefinite!
that is: "HoofGrid™ is expected to outlast the horses, their owners, the farms or equestrian centers, and the surrounding facilities and structures themselves.)

The Answer: No, absolutely not!
Ask yourself "Why not?"
