Ground Protection Mats

GEOTERRA GTO mat supports heavy equipment
Presto Geosystems GEOTERRA GTO mats

Ground protection mats prevent heavy equipment, vehicles and pedestrian traffic from damaging the ground. At the same time, ground mats create stable surfaces so that vehicles and people can safely traverse soft soils.

Applications for ground protection mats:

  • Construction events
  • Events
  • Trails
  • Golf course renovations and maintenance
  • Beach accesses
  • Landscaping projects
  • Athletic field construction

Types of Ground Mats

The industry’s first ground mat was a wood mat, also known as a timber mat. Wood mats are still widely used for construction ground transition but if you’re looking for a more reliable and user friendly mat, consider Presto Geosystem’s GEOTERRA and GEOTERRA GTO Construction Mats.

The GEORUNNER® Scour Protection Mats are an economical solution for protecting soils from scour in erosive environments. This mat protect soil from erosion and vegetation loss in areas with intermittent or concentrated flows and offers resistance to shear stresses, including channels, shorelines, and culvert outfalls. 

The GEORUNNER mats also protect soil from light-to-medium traffic loads from vehicles and other foot traffic. The mats reduce soil compaction and turf damage and can be used for temporary or long-term use.
