ProtectaMats - Pedestrian Tread

ProtectaMat Pedestrian Tread mats are similar to the highly popular ‘Grip Both Sides’ ground protection mats & temporary roadway mats, with the tread on one side ideally suited to pedestrian applications.

For the ultimate versatile mat, the ProtectaMats© Pedestrian Tread Ground Protection Mats will fit the bill.

Ideal for protecting turf and providing temporary roadways and carparks, the strength, weight-sharing capability and handleability of ProtectaMats© means they are an essential piece of equipment for many contractors, earthmovers, facilities and infrastructure companies.

  • With two tread types – Pedestrian Tread One Side and Bold Tread One side – these mats can be used for grass/mud and pedestrian applications
  • Manufactured in Europe from 100% recycled High Density Polyethylene
  • Manufactured using a special moulding process for maximum ductility and durability – withstands a very high degree of bending.
  • Ductile – follows ground contours effectively
  • Same size as a sheet of plywood, 1.2m x 2.4m x 13mm thick

Three different connection options available to join mats together to form a medium/long-term temporary roadway or carpark.

The Easiest Ground Protection Mats to Deploy

Each ProtectaMat© feature 6 handle-holes, which are formed as part of the compression moulding process.

This feature greatly improves the ability of the mat to be deployed to site, restacked and reloaded onto vehicles, making it cost-efficient and time-efficient to deploy and use ProtectaMats© many times over and over again.

Each handle-hole has smoothly rounded edges, meaning that ProtectaMats© can be handled without gloves if neccesary.

Two Tread Types

ProtectaMat© ground protection mats have a unique irregular pattern of rugged nubs, called “Chevron Traction”, in contrast to the standard tread-plate style traction grip common on other mats. This innovation has many benefits:

  • Greatly reduces slippage in all four directions, ensuring maximum grip in all conditions.
  • Facilitates the dispersal of mud – easy to clean
  • Superior traction on slopes
  • Safe and easy to walk on – non slippery and great for pedestrians
  • Fast and easy to re-stack, and prevents sliding, allowing for safe and efficient transport

On the opposite side of the Pedestrian mat is the Pedestrian tread. This low-profile tread is easier to walk on than the Chevron tread, and also much less damaging to hard surfaces if the mats need to occasionally be used on hard surfaces.

ProtectaMats are commonly known as Ground Protection Mats, Track Mats and Temporary Roadway Mats
