When you need to move vehicles into a remote location at a construction site or when you need to protect your lawn and driveway during a construction project at your home, temporary road mats from Greatmats are the best option. These sturdy mats support the weight of vehicles without causing damage to the ground below.

With our road matting, you don’t have to worry about trucks getting stuck in the mud when visiting a construction site. You also don’t have to worry about painters or roofers driving over grass when using lifts around your home and crushing your lawn. Driveway protection mats keep large equipment from cracking your driveway or sidewalk when it moves across your property. Greatmats’ collection of temporary road mats will fit the needs of anyone from a homeowner to a construction company.

Size Options for Driveway Protection Mats

Our driveway protection mats are available in multiple coverage sizes and thicknesses. Larger mats will allow you to create the layout faster because they cover more space per mat. However, they are tougher to carry than smaller tiles because of their size and weight.

Coverage size options include:
  • 4x8 feet
  • 3x8
  • 2x8
  • 4x4
  • 3x6
  • 2x6
  • 2x4

The most common thickness for portable driveway mats is 1/2 of an inch. Other common options include 5/16, 3/8, and 1-1/2 inches.

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. Plywood is far inferior to the material in our portable roadways, which are specifically created for supporting vehicles.

Consider the following if you're thinking of using plywood.
  • Splinters: Under significant weight and repeated use, sheets will start to splinter.
  • Waterlogged: When exposed to water for extended periods, plywood becomes soggy, softened, and waterlogged.
  • Warping: With exposure to water and usage, it starts to warp, making it difficult to navigate.
  • Slides out of place: It can be dislodged, especially on grass, by heavy machinery.
  • Single use: With splintering, warping, and waterlogging issues, plywood is not reusable in future projects.

To make the project go smoothly and to preserve the integrity of the grass beneath, use our drive mats. They cope with the varying terrain and moisture issues associated with outdoor jobs.

Additionally, our products go through meticulous testing and are rated to withstand huge weights. Just lay them out and use them without worrying. They are a great investment, as they can be used numerous times.

Temporary Road Mats Q&A

What size of ground protection mat do I need?

The best size of ground protection mat for your project depends on the overall coverage size you need. Larger mats for sale are heavier, so they can be more difficult to move and install. If you only need a small coverage area, smaller mats may be beneficial.

What should you know about access mats?

When learning about how to use access mats for roadways, it’s helpful to understand that they can go over multiple types of ground without sinking. They’re portable, so you can carry the temp roadway materials to wherever you need them. They even protect any finished surfaces underneath from heavy vehicles, like driveways, sidewalks, or track and field ovals.

How do I protect my driveway from heavy objects?

When doing construction around your home, you can use outdoor driveway mats to protect your driveway from heavy objects, like pallets of roof shingles, landscaping bricks, or heavy duty vehicles. Such heavy materials could crack the concrete in your driveway.

Do heavy trucks damage or crack driveways?

Yes, heavy trucks can occasionally damage or crack driveways. Most personal vehicles will not crack concrete on a driveway, but construction equipment that’s occasionally used around homes could cause damage, necessitating the use of protection mats.

How do I create a temporary road using mats?

The best ideas for creating a road using temporary driveway mats are easier to complete than you may think. Lay the mats end to end to create the roadway. If the mats need to support extremely heavy vehicles or if they need to be in place for a long period of time, consider using connectors that hold the mats securely together.
