What are the Advantages of Plastic Composite Ground Protection Mats?

Composite mats are non-porous, chemically resistant and weather-resistant. It will not absorb moisture or break down when exposed to wet or humid environments. The material is also highly resistant to chemicals, oils and solvents, meaning it will not corrode or become damaged by any substances spilled on its surface.

GroundGuards lightweight plastic mats, made from recycled materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. Our plastic mats are fully recyclable. They prevent damage to the ground, allowing grass and plants to continue growing. No trees are cut down in the production process.

Our plastic track mats are non-porous, meaning they will not absorb moisture or rot. The interlocking design of the mats prevents shifting or separation under weight, providing full ground coverage and stability. HDPE mats can withstand up to 80 tons of weight, depending on the substrate, and have an expected lifespan of 10-15 years.

GroundGuards ground protection mats offer an ideal solution for temporary ground covering and protection. They are durable yet lightweight, portable and modular, allowing for maximum flexibility and efficiency on any work site. Their lightweight properties reduce costs, health and safety risks, and environmental impact compared to alternative, heavier materials.

Although the initial cost may be higher than wood, composite mats last much longer and do not require the same level of ongoing treatments and weatherproofing as wood. This means lower costs in the long run.

Composite mats come in a range of sizes, thicknesses and surface textures to suit any application from outdoor events to construction sites and renewable energy projects.
