Ground Protection 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.

GEOTERRA GTO mat supports heavy equipment

Ground Protection Mat Applications:

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

Composite ground transition mats are a reliable choice for construction and events. Our durable HDPE ground access mats are made from post-industrial recycled plastic.

Each HDPE mat has a cleated design on one slide and a non-slip surface on the other side. This design offers optimal traction between the mat, the ground and the load.

Composite mats can support up to 200 psi depending on surface conditions.

Reuse your composite ground protection mat again-and-again to get the best return on your investment.
