Ground Protection Mats are a lightweight and versatile option for creating paths and tracks. Or, to cover large areas that are both longer and wider, creating an overall consistent surface for vehicles or foot traffic. These type of mats have also been used in landscaping, tree care, cemeteries, golf courses, well drilling, trenching and septic pumping.
Some benefits of using a ground protection mat include the high-density and durable material which allows the mat to withstand pressure from a substantial amount of weight without bending, or breaking. This includes being able to hold the weight of heavy machinery such as cranes, bulldozers, tractors, concrete trucks and backhoes. Also, ground protection mats are easy to build which means platforms, walkways and roadways can be built in minutes. Some additional benefits for ground protection mats are that they are adaptable to weather, easy to clean, environmentally friendly, slip resistant and cost-effective.
Our ground protection mats are each manufactured with two types of anti-slip surface tread, one side which is designed for pedestrian traffic, then once flipped over to the other side, this would be used for the heavier tread for construction traffic. Our mats also come with ground anchors and heavy-duty connecting clips supplied alongside them to help install the mats to create temporary roadways, car parks or pedestrian access around sites.
These mats can be used in several circumstances, whether it is to protect the ground itself against being churned up and swamped or to protect vehicles against sinking into soft soil. Using a ground protection mat, which are essentially lightweight access panels, is a simpler way to spread the pressure of the vehicle’s weight helping prevent damage or complications to the environment or the vehicle. When it comes to reconfiguring the panels, this can be done very easily and at very short notice allowing them to double as an easy way to create a clear parking zone for crane vehicles, as well as to provide a solid surface for outriggers to rest on for additional stability.
