Frequently Asked Questions About Ground Protection Mats Hire


Q. Do ground protection mats work?

Absolutely. Ground protection mats are highly effective in distributing weight and reducing ground pressure, which prevents damage to the underlying surface. Whether it’s for heavy machinery on construction sites or foot traffic at events, these mats provide a stable and secure platform, protecting the ground from wear and tear.


Q. What are ground mats?

Ground mats, also known as ground protection mats, are durable, portable platforms used to protect the ground from damage caused by heavy equipment or frequent foot traffic. They are commonly used in construction, landscaping, and outdoor events to create temporary pathways, driveways, or work areas.


Q. What are track mats for?

Track mats, a type of ground protection mat, are specifically designed for use with heavy machinery and vehicles. They provide a stable surface on soft or sensitive grounds, allowing for safe passage and operation of equipment like diggers, trucks, and cranes. Track mats are essential for preventing ground churn and rutting, especially in wet or muddy conditions.


Q. How do you secure track mats?

Securing track mats typically involves laying them down in an interlocking pattern to cover the desired area. Some mats come with built-in connectors or overlapping flanges that help to keep them firmly in place. For added stability, especially on uneven terrain, it’s important to ensure that the mats are laid flat and closely fitted together. In some cases, additional anchoring or joining methods may be used to secure the mats, depending on the specific requirements of the project.
