Ground Protection Mats

What is ground protection mats and why use these mats?

A ground protection mat is a lightweight, non-slip and flexible mat that is made from high density polyethylene (HDPE). These mats provide a reliable base for traction and safe passage way for vehicles and heavy equipment over unpaved surfaces, sandy, soft muddy or marshy grounds.

Besides providing traction and safe access, ground protection mats also serves to protect the ground by dispersing heavy loads thus minimising soil compaction and erosion. The flexible construction of these ground protection mats allows the mats to follow contours of the ground thus making them well suited on sloping or undulating ground conditions. Due to the versatility of these mats, they are widely deployed in industries such as but not limited to construction, landscaping, oil & gas, utilities and civil engineering.

Ground protection mats with pedestrian-friendly treads provide safe temporary walking paths for pedestrian surrounding redevelopment projects near residential or high pedestrian footfall areas as well as a clean and level ground/floor for temporary set-ups such as pop-up events or festivals. At the same time, these mats protect the lawn or turf underneath.

Advantages of using Ground Protection Mats

  • Up to 120 tons load capacity

  • Lightweight; can be moved around by 2 staff members

  • Provide for reliable traction and grip in any weather conditions

  • Flexible construction allows for slopes and inclines conformity

  • Unlikely to warp, splinter or break under different weather conditions

  • Comparatively more durable and cost effective in the long run

  • Made of HDPE thus are non-conductive, unaffected by weather, chemical and oil resistant

Disadvantges of plywood and metal sheets

  • Both plywood and metal sheets have no definitive load bearing ratings

  • Both plywood and metal sheets have no traction; mud and water ponding can build up creating hazardous conditions for personnel, vehicles and equipment

  • Both plywood and metal sheets are flexible to follow the contours of the ground

  • Plywood can absorb water and liquids which accelerates rotting

  • Metal sheets required cranes to move around thereby increasing operating cost

  • Metal sheets are also prone to rusting and not non-conductive
