Ground-Guard Ground Protection Mats

Ground-Guard Ground Protection Mats

Temporary access ground matting solution to protect grass and turf, minimise reinstatement costs and prevention of vehicles getting bogged down.

Ground-Guard Protection Mats are manufactured from ½” thick recycled high-density polyethylene, and offer the perfect solution to churned-up landscapes and reduced traction for works vehicles.

Lightweight and easy to assemble, Ground-Guards can be locked into place to form a continuous, solid roadway or work platform. The product features a patented heavy diamond deck-plate design for maximum traction and is also available with a smooth reverse side for easy removal of dirt.

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
    Standard tread boards have interlocking grips on both sides for maximum traction.
  • Walk
    Walk tread boards have a close pattern of raised grips, suitable for pedestrian walkways.
  • Smooth
    Smooth surface boards are suitable for tracked vehicles.
