Ground Protection Systems

Ground protection mats are a relatively new product to the market, they offer a cost-effective way to protect grass areas and other sensitive ground from heavy equipment and even foot traffic. Interlocking couplers ensure that the mats do not become separated during use, and can easily be removed when the mats are no longer required.

Providing traction in all weather conditions, our ground mats have coarse tread patterns that ensure traffic can reach where it needs to be even if it rains.

What Are Common Applications For Temporary Ground Protection?

There are many applications where temporary road mats are required, this may be to prevent an area from becoming boggy, or to prevent vehicles from sinking and damaging the underlying soil.

Caravan Siting

Caravan sites rely on their pristine appearance to attract residents and visitors, after all, no one wants to camp on a site with torn up turf and mud. Track matting allows sites to bring in heavy vehicles when moving static caravans on and off site without causing damage.

Temporary Roadways

When construction needs to be carried out in a remote area vehicles supplying materials may have to cross fields and lawns to gain access. Temporary road mats can be linked together forming a road that will not only offer stability to crossing vehicles but also protect underlying turf.


During events, especially those such as music festivals, airshows and car shows there is often a lot of traffic passing on foot between different areas. Our ground matting systems can be laid to make temporary walkways, preventing British summer rain from turning your event into a slippery mud pit.


When carrying out construction work around a property, not only can ground reinforcement be used to provide temporary roadway access, it can be used to provide stability for lifting equipment by supporting outriggers and preventing sinkage.

Which Ground Mat Should I Choose?

Although ground mat systems may look very similar they do have a few subtle differences that we have covered below;

Different Colours

The difference in colour is purely down to the composition of each mat system, and only has any real effect on the visual aspects of the mat. The most common colours are black and grey.

Hand Holds

If you find yourself moving ground mats frequently around the work site, having a mat that has handholds will make the process much easier. On the other hand, mud and water can travel from through the hand holes when placed on exceptionally wet and soft ground.

Different Tread patterns

Most of our mats have tread patterns on both sides; a coarse and a fine side depending on which traffic type is passing over. If you are planning on installing mats indoors or delicate grass areas, you might want to consider the EconoMat Plus which has a non-treaded side.
