Temporary Access Systems for the Rail Industry

The rail maintenance industry has to work to the highest standards of safety, and the most critical of deadlines.

Efficient access in remote or awkward locations can make all the difference to the success of a project. GroundGuards sell and hire out a wide range of trackway systems, from the ever-popular MultiTrack, to the ultra-versatile heavy-duty MaxiTrack and the huge 4 x 2m XtremeMats which are filled with buoyant foam.

Large stocks and rapid turnaround enable orders placed by 2:00pm to be delivered to most UK locations next day. So whether it is for a temporary roadway, site compound, or Road Rail Access Point, or even a temporary platform surface, GroundGuards has solutions to offer for your needs.

Ground protection for railway station access

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. Ideal to create a temporary access route over difficult terrain.

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


Create a high-traction, robust, temporary roadway or car park 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.

SignaRoad® mats measure 3m x 2m and are made from an ultra-tough HDPE composite. They are connected together with special camlock fixings, which makes them quick and easy to assemble on site: ideal for creating large access roads or temporary car parks.

FODS (Foreign Object Debris System) track-out mats reduce the amount of debris that tracks out from site entrances by cracking mud off the vehicles’ tyres. They therefore provide substantial savings on the cost of street sweeping throughout the duration of a project.

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 paving protection and creating a socially distanced walkway for your site workers to use.
