MaxiTrack Extra Heavy Duty Matting System

Featuring anti-slip tread and overlapping flange joints, the MaxiTrack extra heavy duty matting system can be installed quickly and easily by hand with no specialist joining tools needed. It’s the ideal solution for creating a temporary haul road or access route on site.


XtremeMats are the most advanced and versatile heavy-duty matting system in the world! Built for use in the harshest environments, these ultra-tough HDPE 4 x 2m mats will far outlast timber bogmats.


FODS (Foreign Object Debris System) Track-Out Mats

These mats reduce the amount of debris that tracks out from building site entrances by cracking mud off the vehicles’ tyres. They provide substantial savings on the cost of street sweeping throughout the duration of a project.

MultiTrack Hand-Installed Mats

Create a high-traction, robust, temporary roadway on site with MultiTrack hand-installed 2.4 x 1.2m mats. These versatile HDPE mats clip together quickly for a simple installation, and can be easily re-configured across the site or from job to job.  


Made from 100% recycled PVC, FastCover provides a strong, durable and economical anti-slip surface. This flooring is cost-effective and very easy to lay; perfect for block paving protection and creating a temporary walkway for your site workers to use.

FastCover PLUS

FastCover PLUS mats positively connect together with interlocking lugs. This makes them ideal for creating trip-free construction site walkways where the ground is rough or undulating. They can also be interlocked in a brick-bond pattern for protecting paving or as a temporary car park over a stone base. Choice of colours.
