GROUND PROTECTION MATS

GROUNDCO is the original innovator of our signature 4’x8’ Ground Protection “Mini” Mats. These versatile mats provide ground protection, access and foundation stability over developed and undeveloped infrastructure. Our “Mini” Mats are designed to be handled with light or compact rubber tracked or tired equipment. For access applications our “Mini” mats can offer a trackway, 12’ wide road, or 16’ wide road depending on your requirements. One Super B load of our “Mini” mats will provide a 12’ wide access road stretching 245 meters. In comparison you would require three Super B loads of Conventional 8’x14’ access mats to cover the same distance. These mats are very strong, economical, and easy to operate with. They are available in two formats:

• 4' x 8' INTERLOCKING "STANDARD" GROUND PROTECTION MAT
• 4' x 8' INTERLOCKING "CONTAINER SHIPPING" GROUND PROTECTION MAT

AlturnaMat®

AlturnaMat® is a high load capacity mat boasting an aggressive diamond plate tread design and a high load capacity ideal for use over soft or sensitive ground conditions in the construction, civil engineering, groundwork, and events industries.

These rugged mats are made of (0.5”) thick polyethylene making them virtually indestructible. AlturnaMat® can withstand loads of up to 120 tons*, and its flexible construction means that these mats will follow the contours of the ground to deliver a highly effective access solution over undulating or sloping ground conditions.

Weighing just 86 lbs, the 4’x8’ AlturnaMat® can be easily deployed and manoeuvered by hand without any specialist equipment with the added optional convenience of strategically positioned hand holes.

AlturnaMat® can be connected together using our Turn-A-Links connectors to create a secure trackway or work pad.
