Outriggerpads is launching a new heavy duty ground protection mat aimed at the plant hire, events and construction industries.
Ground mats protect turf and soft ground from damage caused by construction equipment and other heavy vehicles. They also help prevent vehicles from losing traction or getting bogged down. Applications include construction, landscaping, utilities, estates management and outdoor events.
Measuring 2.88m x 1.44m, the Outriggerpads Ground Mat is specifically designed to accommodate the wheelbase and chassis width of most mobile cranes and other plant. It can withstand extreme vertical pressures, with load-bearing capabilities of 12 to 65 tonnes, depending on terrain.
The mats have a non-slip 8mm extruded finish on both sides, meaning they grip the ground as well as providing a superior grip for the tyres of passing vehicles. Manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE), these ground mats are highly durable – they are resistant to water, oil and chemicals; and there’s no corrosion or splintering.
Charles Grizzle, Business Development Executive for Outriggerpads, said: “We developed the ground mat in response to demand from our customer base. We’ve worked hard to deliver a product that is extremely durable, has great load bearing capabilities and provides a superior grip. It is also lightweight, portable, and easy to link together, making it ideal for creating temporary roads or even a parking area.”
Weighing just 65kg the mat features six handles so can be easily carried, positioned and stored by two or three people. A standard steel connector easily joins the mats together to form a temporary roadway, while a four-way link bar is also available for creating a large surface area such as for parking.
