Easily Create Temporary Roadways and Preserve Soft Ground

AlturnaMats 4x8 ground cover mats can help to eliminate the problem of driving vehicles across a muddy construction site or on delicate sports turf or lawn. These roadway mats create a safe way to move vehicles of almost any size across an area with soft ground underneath. Whether you want to avoid tearing up the grass or sinking in mud, these mats can spread the weight of the vehicle to prevent tires or treads from digging into the ground.

Creating a temporary roadway can give you continuous access to the job site, even when the ground is still soft from rain. It also demonstrates to the customer that you are invested in protecting their property, and can reduce cleanup time and cost.

Maximize Vehicle Traction for Easier Maneuverability at Each Job Site

These vehicle traction mats feature an aggressive diamond plate tread on both sides. That tread helps to maximize your vehicle traction to improve maneuverability for time-saving convenience and overall safety, too.

Additionally, these high-density polyethylene, or HDPE, mats are supremely strong. They’re rated to support up to 120 tons, depending on ground conditions.

Invest in Quality, Long-Lasting Ground Protection Mats for Your Business

Plywood weakens and rots when it’s constantly exposed to moisture, leading to warping and splintering. You’ll have to constantly replace it.

The Checkers AlturnaMats, for sale at Greatmats, are highly durable heavy equipment mats. They’re also reusable and can be easily hosed off and packed up when a job is over and you’re moving on to the next site. When you invest in these mats, you’re making a long-lasting investment in your business.


Do not use these mats to bridge over a ravine or drainage ditch. They must sit on top of soil, grass, or gravel at all times.

The product is not intended for use with steel tracks or as a landing area for dropping tree limbs.

Customer Rating: 5 Stars - AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats Black 1/2 Inch x 4x8 Ft. Diamond/Diamond

We bought 3 of these to place under our forklift when it traveled over our limestone driveway. The forklift would frequently bog down in the soft gravel. These mats are the perfect solution. They are easily moved and placed with two people or one strong person. We will probably order more for next years harvest season.

I use a track loader primarily on my mats - a dump trailer and different things that I cross over manicured yards.

When I get into some of these driveways where they have the stone, cobblestones and stuff like that, I put the smooth side down when I cross them, so the diamond’s not digging into it.

I build a driveway and work on top of them now. That makes my cleanup so much easier.

When my 14,000-pound track loader got stuck in the marsh, I stuck a couple of the mats underneath the tracks, and I lifted the tracks up with my forestry mower, which weighs like 3,000-4,000 pounds. I was able to get traction up out of there and then I put a couple more mats in front of that, and I pulled myself out of there with nobody pulling me. I was able to get out of there because of the mats.

One of the biggest things is the cleanup afterwords because you’re not sitting there having to rake all of that area that got debris dropped down on it.I like everything about it. I pull the mats up and the yard looks just like when I got there.

These mats are something I never thought of before. Now when I look at a job, I can get to it because of these mats. I wouldn’t go without them now.

These mats are not really mats, theyre more like heavy duty plastic sheets. They are so heavy that 2 guys can barely carry them. I just bought six of them and I have no use for them now because theyre too heavy to use. I was told by a representative that these were easy to maneuver, they are not at all easy to move. Extremely disappointed!
