Plywood has long been the traditional method of ground protection but often breaks during first use. It splinters, warps, becomes water-logged and is awkward to handle and could cause injury.
Ground-Guard Protection Mats are so light and easy to handle that you don’t even require a HIAB lorry to set them out. They can either be laid loose for temporary access, or clipped together (without tools) to form semi-permanent roadways and car parks.
Ground-Guards have been field tested in extreme cold and intense heat and are backed by a full 2 year warranty.
Ground-Guards are available in three finishes: Standard (ST), Walk (W) and Smooth (SM). The table below shows which finishes are available for each size.
Standard tread boards have interlocking grips on both sides for maximum traction.
Walk tread boards have a close pattern of raised grips, suitable for pedestrian walkways.
Smooth surface boards are suitable for tracked vehicles.
