AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats Black 1/2 Inch x 4x8 Ft.

The original AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats Black 1/2 Inch x 4x8 Ft. feature maximum traction with a diamond plate tread mat design. Simply the best made ground protection mats on the market - hands down, this claim is backed-up by our Lifetime Warranty on all ground protection mats that we sell.

AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats 4x8 Feet, Black

To eliminate the problem of driving vehicles across a muddy construction site or of driving vehicles on a delicate sports turf or lawn, count on the high quality AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats 4x8 feet in size.

Our turf access mats create a safe method to move vehicles of almost any size across an area with soft ground underneath. Whether customers want to avoid tearing up the natural turf with the large vehicles or to avoid sinking in mud, our ground protection mats 4x8 in size are ready to provide the desired level of traction.

Even when the ground underneath the mats is soft from rain or from watering, the mats are able to spread the weight of the vehicle across the ensure width of the mat, preventing the tires or treads of the vehicle from digging into the ground.

High Quality Mats for Temp Roadways

These mats consist of a high density polyethylene, or HDPE, material, which outperforms other products and materials construction workers and maintenance teams use to create temporary roads.

The HDPE is far stronger and sturdier than plywood, which is a common material construction workers use for carrying vehicular traffic around the job site.

Plywood cannot hold the same amount of weight as our ground protection mats 4x8 feet in size. Our HDPE mats can support up to 120 tons, depending on the ground conditions.

Plywood also will begin to weaken and rot as it receives constant exposure to moisture, while our mats maintain their durability, even when wet.

As a final benefit, our ground protection mats 4x8 for sale will work for dozens, if not hundreds, of jobs. After a team uses plywood sheets one time for a temp driveway, the plywood will end up as garbage. Our mats use 100% recycled HDPE, making them an environmentally friendly, reusable choice.

Versus using basic plastic as a temporary ground cover, our mats can hold far more weight and are far sturdier. Most types of plastics tend to bend or become brittle under significant weight, leaving them unusable day after day.

Some construction teams may prefer to lay road gravel at the site to create a method of moving heavy vehicular traffic. However, with all of this gravel in place, it makes planting a lawn or using sod extremely difficult later without the time and expense of removing the gravel.

Our ground protection mats 4x8 sized will go over the top of existing grass. Or, if planting a yard after the construction process ends, just pick up our mats and move them into storage or move them into place at a new construction job before planting the grass seed or laying the sod.

Even though these mats work perfectly for vehicle traffic, they also are an option for creating a pedestrian walkway around a construction site. This helps to keep visitors to a construction site safe and free from walking on mud.

These mats also work for creating a bike path or a golf cart path for moving around a large property safely.

Interlocking Traction Mats for Large Vehicles

Customers can select among three traction patterns over the top of our mats, helping them match the pattern to the conditions.

In an area where vehicles may have quite a bit of mud on the tires, a full diamond pattern is a logical choice. In areas where mud and wet conditions are not present, customers can select a tile with a smooth top surface, as they don’t need the traction from the tread.

We offer models with diamond tread on both sides, diamond tread on one side, and smooth surfaces on both sides.

When creating the road, customers almost certainly will want to connect multiple mats together. These mats contain holes for adding secure connector pins along both the length and width of the mats.
