Alturnamats® are used for ground transition

Ground Transition Mats for Heavily Trafficked Areas

Ground transition mats protect the ground from damage caused by heavy equipment, machinery and large volumes of people. Excessive traffic and heavy loads destabilize the transition zone. As a result, machines get stuck, injuries happen and the ground is damaged.

Transition mats create a pathway that protects ground, machine and man from soft soils. Mud, sand and soft grass, for example, are all unstable surfaces. However, travel is much easier when you use mud mats or wood mats. Transition mats can be used for landscaping, construction and pipeline projects. They are also great for concerts, festivals and beach accesses.


Alturnamats® are composed of 100% recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE). These strong ground transition mats are 0.5 inches thick. The thick layer of HDPE makes these mats durable enough to handle heavy construction equipment. However, they flex to adjust to weight distribution and ground contours. A diamond pattern improves the surface traction of the mats. Common applications for Alturnamats® include construction entrances, utility projects, concerts and landscaping.

Customize your mats:

  • Color: Black or Clear
  • Sizes: 8′ x 4′ most commonly stocked. More sizes available by request
  • Interlock the corners with A-links

Wood Mats

Wood Mats are the industry’s oldest form of ground protection. They are reusable, strong, and the most natural ground transition product. These hardwood mats are available in a variety of strengths and sizes. Wood Mats are battle tested and reliable. Therefore, they are ideal for pipeline projects, large scale utility work, and disaster relief.
