Ground Protection Matting for Heavy Equipment | HPDE
Checkers™ has the largest and most respected range of lightweight temporary access and ground protection matting on the market. Checkers’™ market-leading ground protection mats deliver safer and more robust temporary access, roadways or working platforms for construction vehicles and site personnel. Made from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene, Checkers™ mats are hard wearing and robust. Our medium-duty range offers a variety of sizes, colors and traction surfaces ranging from rugged traction to low-profile pedestrian traction to smooth.
The Checkers™ range of matting is largely manhandle-able meaning it’s easily deployed by a team of two. This reduces the downtime while building temporary access roadways, allowing workers to get the job done with minimal time wasted.
Our range of ground protection mats has load-bearing capacities of up to 120 tons.
AlturnaMAT® Ground Protection
AlturnaMAT® is a high load capacity mat boasting an aggressive diamond plate tread design and a high load capacity ideal for use over soft or sensitive ground conditions in the construction, civil engineering, groundwork, and events industries. These rugged mats are made of 0.5in. (12.7 mm) thick polyethylene making them virtually indestructible. AlturnaMATS® can withstand loads of up to 120 tons*, and its flexible construction means that these mats will follow the contours of the ground to deliver a highly effective access solution over undulating or sloping ground conditions. Weighing just 86 lbs (39 kg) at its maximum size and just 21.4 lbs (9.7 kg) at its smallest, AlturnaMATS® can be easily deployed and maneuvered without any special equipment with the added optional convenience of strategically positioned hand holes. AlturnaMATS® can be connected together using our Turn-A-Links connectors to create a secure trackway or work pad.
