Highly Durable Ground Protection Mat

When you select Greatmats’ industrial strength ground protection mat, you receive a high-quality, made-in-the-USA product that carries a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. This means that you receive a great value over time.

Compared to using plywood for temporary roads, our ground protection mats for sale will not splinter and sink into the mud.

The high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic matting is made to support vehicles up to 60 tons in size without cracking or buckling. Plywood cannot deliver this level of performance.

Tree trimmers use these as arbor mats for supporting bucket trucks, while schools use these as track mats for covering the track-and-field oval to protect it from football and soccer cleats.

Additionally, use these heavy duty grass protection mats for supporting:

  • Bobcats
  • Skid steers
  • Utility trenchers
  • Well drilling trucks

  • Front end loaders
  • Motor vehicles

  • Prevent damaged grass
  • Prevent ruts in the yard
  • Prevent ruts at a construction site

FAQ Ground Protection Mat

How do turf protection mats compare to plywood?

Our products have an excellent durability, allowing them to survive massive amounts of weight without splintering or otherwise breaking down. Plywood cannot handle damp conditions, whereas ours consist of a poly plastic that does not absorb water, allowing it to thrive in multiple kinds of weather and mud. These temporary roadways will distribute the weight of vehicle tires, which prevents ruts from forming underneath them, which plywood cannot do.

How long can a ground protection mat stay in place?

It depends on the expectations for the grounds where these landscape mats will be laid out. For those who want the grasses beneath to survive, the majority of grasses will remain alive after two to three days of average use of the heavy duty ground protection mats 4x8 products. If there’s a lot of mud or if dozens of massive trucks will go through in a 24-hour period, removal may need to happen after a day or two. If those involved do not care about the survival of the turf underneath, the materials can sit there indefinitely.
