Choosing the Right Ground Protection:

Without proper ground protection, foot traffic can cause significant damage to fields, especially during winter and wet weather. This can lead to difficult and potentially hazardous conditions for pedestrians and vehicles alike. Furthermore, the lack of wheelchair access can pose serious accessibility issues. Not to mention, the hefty remediation costs to restore the ground can be a financial burden.

Enter ground protection mats. These robust solutions not only protect the ground but also provide a safe and stable surface for people and vehicles to traverse. They are easy to install, durable, and can withstand heavy loads, making them an ideal choice for various industries.

When choosing ground protection, consider the following:

  • Durability: Ensure the mats are robust and can withstand the intended load.
  • Versatility: Look for mats that can be used in various conditions and applications.
  • Installation: Opt for mats that are easy to install and remove.
  • Cost: Consider both the purchase price and potential savings from reduced ground damage.
