Durable Heavy Mats for Roadways, Equipment Mats, and Skid Steer Mats

If you're struggling with getting your trucks and other heavy equipment stuck in the mud or soggy spring ground conditions while on the job, or if you're driving heavy equipment over customers lawns or driveways and you're afraid of it causing damage to the property, then you'll want to check out Greatmats extensive selection of heavy equipment mats.

When you need to create a temporary roadway for moving equipment in a place where the ground may be soft, heavy equipment mats from Greatmats are the ideal selection.

Move our ground mats into and out of place as needed to deliver protection for the existing ground. Whenever you need to drive over a lawn at a home or over mud at a construction site, our temporary road mats will perform at a high level for you.

Size and Shape Options

Our heavy equipment mats typically appear in many sizes and rectangular shapes, which is the best shape for creating a road over a long space.

Mats measuring 6 to 8 feet in length are the most common options for these access roadway mats. For widths, you should be able to select widths ranging from 2 to 4 feet.

To cover large spaces efficiently, we even offer mats that measure 8 by 14 feet.

If you want to install something that’s made to be more permanent as a roadway option, we also offer GeoGrid square-shaped interlocking tiles. This tile integrates itself into the existing ground to ensure a sturdy roadway.

Material Options

Our drive-on heavy equipment mats primarily consist of polyethylene plastic material. This style of plastic can support extremely large amounts of weight, and it will not degrade or fail when exposed to rough weather or excessive moisture.

The GeoGrid tiles also consist of this same plastic material, ensuring they can help you create a temporary roadway that will last.

Because our polyethylene plastic is so durable, even when placed over the top of mud or a yard, it has a far better level of performance than creating a temporary road out of spare plywood sheets left over at the construction site. Plywood will splinter or rot quickly, but our tiles will last for many, many uses.

We also offer outrigger pads designed to support the weight of heavy vehicles and equipment that use outrigger poles while they work. These pads consist of proprietary engineered thermoplastic that has a vertical load bearing of tens of thousands of pounds.

Pattern and Texture Options

When making use of heavy equipment mats in a muddy construction area, the surface of the mats may collect mud, grass, and moisture. This could create an unsafe, slippery surface.

Our mats for sale deliver an improved level of traction by offering a raised pattern on the surface of the mats. The raised pattern only measures a fraction of an inch, so it doesn’t generate a tripping hazard.

Some of our mats have a smooth finish on one side and a raised texture pattern on the other side, so you can create a smooth temporary road when using the mats in a dry location.

Our outrigger support pads have a textured top tread surface that reduces the possibility of the pole slipping out of place.

Common Use Options

Construction companies are the most common customers for our heavy equipment mats. If performing work at a remote site with a lot of dirt being moved, mud will eventually appear. Our durable mats will keep vehicles from sinking into the mud, while also giving people a place to walk safely.

When working in an area with an established lawn, our mats give you the ability to drive over the grass without tearing it up and creating unwanted ruts. We even have a transparent plastic mat that allows sunlight to reach the grass.

Schools may use these mats to protect a track surface when driving vehicles across the track to reach the football field in the middle. These mats also work to protect the track from the cleats football and soccer players wear.

Installation Options

With our heavy equipment mats, you can lay them in place end to end or side by side. The weight of the individual mats should hold them in place.

However, in areas where the ground underneath is soft and where you will be driving extremely heavy vehicles over the top, you can connect the mats with links and connectors that will hold them together nicely, even when placed under significant amounts of weight.

For our GeoGrid tiles, use the interlocking tabs on the edges to connect adjacent tiles together. These tiles have an open grid design, so you can fill the holes with rock or soil to hold them in place.

This is a smart option to use in remote areas of a property where erosion is a problem, as the tiles will help hold the soil in place.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

To clean these heavy-duty temporary roadway tiles, just rinse them with a pressure washer or a garden hose. If the tiles have stubborn soils stuck to them, you can use a non-metal scrub brush to try to clean them.

Allow them to dry in the sun after washing them. You can then stack them for storage until the next time you need them.

These mats do not require any special maintenance techniques, as they’ll maintain their integrity in the toughest conditions.
