Mud Mats for Construction

Ground Protection Mats are commonly used for moving equipment onto dirt or grass areas to protect it from being torn up by heavy equipment. When used for landscaping, most contractors will use these mats to prevent damage to lawns and turf while heavy equipment is being moved to the backyard. It's always a good idea to make sure the pristine appearance of the front yard remains the same plus if a contractor tears up a yard, chances are they will have to pay for the repairs.

How Many Protection Mats Are Required For Residential Projects?

The minimum amount of 3' x 8' mats is 15 for residential work where you will be moving heavy machinery from the front yard to the backyard. You can decide on more mats considering the size of the yard or if you will have multiple projects going on at once. The most popular size of ground protection mats is 4' x 8' rectangular mats. While these mats are similar to plywood they are a lot more durable and long-lasting. Even though they are the most popular does not mean they are the best option for your project. The 4' x 8' mats weight approximately 86 lbs and if you are doing most of the work on your own, it might be a good idea to choose a slightly smaller 3' x 8' size for the mats so they will be easier to move around and you can handle them without assistance.

Composite Mats Are The Best Choice For Your Job

These mats come in light, medium, and heavy-duty construction to meet the demands of a large range of applications. They are engineered and manufactured for all construction needs for any size job to meet your specific needs. Due to their manufactured variants, you will find the safest most efficient composite mats to help you out.

Having a great ground surface can turn into a real nightmare when heavy traffic or machinery rolls over it. As this can happen at any time, you will quickly discover how indispensable ground protection mats can be.

Tip: We also offer a open structure matting designed for metal roof ventilation and sound reduction or as a turf reinforcement mat that stabilizes the topsoil.

Determine The Ground Conditions Before Starting A Project

Before starting a project, you have to determine the condition of the soil such as rocky, grassy, or sandy. Does the ground slope, is it muddy, or extremely dry? Determine the soil condition, then decide what matting you want to use for the project. Ground protection mats will conform to just about all ground conditions. You can overlap flanges and use locking pins to reduce gaps and breaks that can cause excessive wear and possibly damage to equipment as well as placing your workers in harm's way.

You should ask as many questions as possible regarding the soil condition of the site, the bearing capacity of the sub-grade, the load and traffic requirements, and the time frame of the project. This information can have an impact on the number of mats and the configuration of your road or work site. These issues are best addressed by a GeoEngineer or the project manager before installation begins.

Ground protection mats are designed to withstand over time and not deteriorate from wear and tear which can not be said about plywood boards. Ground protection mats will continue to be a valuable application for protecting the ground and not breaking under pressure. These mats will not warp which otherwise would prevent them from lying flat on the surface.

Construction Mut Mats Are Versatile

When managing a project, you must be able to adapt to situations quickly or everything could fall apart. This is where composite construction mats come into play. These mats can be assembled in various directions to create a large work area like passing lanes and other platforms and roadway configuration allowing you to quickly and easily pivot your plans when changes are needed.

After a job is completed, there are several factors that could impact your bottom line such as needed job site changes. Unlike wood mats, composite mats will not splinter or crack under intense pressure leaving behind pieces of debris polluting sensitive environments. Composite mats are made from HDPE which is a non-toxic material to eliminate cross-contamination between work sites, will protect vegetation, and control soil compaction which in turn will reduce the needed time for expensive clean-up efforts.

Note: We also offer wide variety of Erosion mats.

Mud Mats for Construction vs. Plywood Sheeting

Plywood and OSB warping can be a major problem for a number of reasons making HDPE ground protection matting the ideal solution for construction and long term use. Wooden boards, like plywood, will no longer retain a level surface making it impossible to place equipment on. When the wooden board is starting to curve, it could easily damage the ground it's resting on because the board is literally digging into the ground.

On top of that, a warping board can lead to other serious hazards such as splintering or forming a surface that is impossible to walk on. The warping could lead to the board or boards tipping and cause injury to those standing on the boards. Understand, once wood starts to warp, it's almost impossible to use it, especially by professional contractors. Warping is a condition that means the plywood boards are no long durable and unlikely to be of any further use.

Warping is a condition that means the plywood boards are no long durable and unlikely to be of any further use.

On the other hand, ground protection mats will never suffer from these issues even over time. HDPE plastic is not designed to warp. You would have to apply pressure to the same spot on the mat repeatedly and over a very long period of time before this could even remotely happen. Ground protection mats are available in different thicknesses. The thickness will determine if there would ever be signs of wear and tear in comparison to other levels of thickness.

Note: If your jobsite also has erosion to address we offer a non-biodegradable turf reinforcement mat made of a dense, interlocking, and multi-lobed polypropylene fibers. This mat has no biodegradable components. It is also stabilized against chemical and ultraviolet degradation.

Mud Mats Transportation & Assembly

Due to the range of sizes available for ground protection mats, these mats are very easy to transport and assemble.

Keep in mind, that there are mats that are too large for one person to move by themselves. If you will be dealing with the larger mats, make sure you have someone to help in transporting. These mats do come in smaller sizes but if you have a large area for construction, chances are the smaller mats will not be a good alternative.

Mud matting for construction is a lot more flexible than plywood and will bend a little, so they will be easier to handle and transport. Ground protection mats are much easier to set up. These mats offer interlocking mechanisms to fit them together and offer a sturdy surface with less risk of the mats moving at any time.
