Off-Road Mats Outperform Plywood

Sometimes, businesses think that using plywood as temporary roadway mats will be faster, cheaper, and easier than investing in road mats. Unfortunately, that's not the case. This wood is far inferior to portable roadways, which have been specifically created for the task at hand.

Consider the following if you're thinking of using plywood:
  1. Splinters: Under significant weight and repeated use, sheets will start to splinter.
  2. Waterlogged: When exposed to water for extended periods, it absorbs dampness. This results in soggy, softened, and waterlogged materials that become slippery.
  3. Warping: With exposure to water and usage, it starts to warp, making it difficult to navigate.
  4. Slides out of place: It isn't designed for creating roads to carry huge machines. It can be dislodged, especially on grass.
  5. Single use: With splintering, warping, and waterlogging issues, it can't be reused in future projects, which means throwing money away.

To make the project go smoothly and to preserve the integrity of the plants beneath, invest in these. Our drive mats offer solid connections, so they won't dislodge. They are specifically manufactured to be able to cope with the varying terrain and moisture issues associated with outdoor jobs.

Additionally, ours go through meticulous testing and are rated to withstand huge weights. There's no splintering or breaking to worry about. Just lay them out and use them without worrying. They are a great investment, as they can be used numerous times.

We've outlined a number of our products that will outperform used temporary road mats for sale.

Ground Protection Mats

Our 1/2-inch recycled polyethylene portable road mats have a bold cleat design that offers great traction. These can support loads of 120 tons, making them an excellent choice for most projects with hefty machines. They are available in multiple lengths and widths for creating a customized size coverage area.

These can be locked together with Turn-A-Links to set up continuous roadways or platforms in just minutes. They won't separate until disassembly time, so the project goes smoothly and there's no adjustment necessary.

If you're working over grass, think about purchasing these in a clear design. The transparent access mats allow UV penetration through them, so plant growth continues.

Looking for added convenience and savings? We offer a variety of Mat-Paks, which include everything needed. It's an easier way to order, especially when the dimensions are known beforehand.

Mud-Traks Construction Mats

Working in a muddy area? Our Mud-Traks are an ideal solution for the most challenging work situations.

These offer the most aggressive traction surface in the industry, with texture on both sides to prevent slipping and keep the project moving forward. Please note: These are for rubber-track or tire vehicles only and should not be used with steel tracks.

Mud-Traks feature grip holes for easy lifting, so they can be easily handled by workers while in the field. They fit in the back of a pickup truck and will bend, but they don't roll up or break.

These will withstand the demands encountered in the field. They are not affected by water, gas, oil, or chemicals. They do not conduct electricity and can support up to 35,000 pounds. They're a smart choice when working in demanding, difficult situations.

TrakMat Heavy Equipment Mats

Designed specifically for use with hefty vehicles, the TrakMat Grounds Cover Mat has a load-bearing weight of up to 160,000 pounds.

These are manufactured from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene and feature a rugged button-top surface tread for an impressively good grip.

One of the major benefits of the TrakMat is that, due to its flexible makeup, it molds to the slight contours of the earth for a secure, stable fit. It is unaffected by heat or cold and has hand holes for maneuvering and installation. Connector options are available to create a single driving area.

VersaMats Composite Mat Solution

If you're looking for a versatile, multi-purpose product, look no further than our VersaMats Diamond. These are made of tough, 1/2-inch thick recycled poly. They are built to withstand frequent traffic, but with two cleat designs, they are suitable for both walking and vehicle traffic.

These can be locked with EZ Links or Turn-A-Links, so it takes a few minutes to lay them out. They leave the turf underneath smooth, even in soft soil conditions, and are found in a variety of colors and sizes.
