For effective man-handable access, Heavy Duty Access Mats are the market leading product for temporary access and ground protection over soft or sensitive ground for loads up to 80 tonnes*.
They are manufactured from 100% recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE) and they weigh just 36kg. Heavy Duty Access Mats are ideal for both short and long term projects and their strategically positioned hand holes make them easy to off load from trucks or pallets. Its lightweight but heavy duty nature also reduces transport costs, as well as enabling easy installation around the site by two men.
All our mats have highly engineered, unique traction surfaces, comprising of a broken pattern of rugged nubs. This design substantially improves the grip and forward motion of vehicles and plant and reduces side way slippage, even in the most challenging weather or ground conditions.
The traction design also facilitates the dispersal of mud from the mats as vehicles and plant traverse over them. Each mat can be connected with a variety of connection systems to match different ground and weather conditions and for various temporary access requirements. It's flexible nature allows the mat to follow the contours of the ground to deliver highly effective access over undulating or sloping terrain.

Our panels provide temporary access and ground protection in all types of applications. The design of the panels allows them to be used on both level and uneven ground. As well as providing access for heavy plant and machinery, they’ll protect the ground from damage even from the heaviest vehicles. Because of the optimal load distribution panels can be used in a variety of applications and weights.
The installation of ground mat panels can be carried out easily and quickly by a 2- person-team. On average 2 people will only need one day to assemble 75 panels, however teams with experience can install up to 140 pieces per day.
