Why Ground Protection Mats Are Essential For Builders
Health and Safety laws have meant people in the construction industry have turned to ground protection mats to safeguard workers, machinery and land.
Denbighshire (I-Newswire) September 12, 2013 - Ground Protection Mats are one of the latest technologies helping the construction industry. The Ground Access Hire Ground Protection Mats provide a strong and secure surface whilst protecting the underlying ground from erosion.
The mats have helped many within the industry, including construction machinery company JCB. A company spokesman said the mats came into their own "when a 50 tonne crane truck was bogged to its axle. They were placed underneath and the truck was able to drive out.
The mats have proved very effective as working platforms in muddy conditions."
This is why many construction firms now hire the ground protection mats. They protect the ground from the heavy machinery and they also provide a safe and secure roadway for construction vehicles.
The Trak mats as they are known are made from lightweight, durable HD Polyethylene. However, they are easy to handle and lay, with no specialist equipment required.
The temporary ground protection panels are often used for safeguarding existing blockwork, tarmac or grassed areas from heavy loads and machinery whilst enabling an easy site route for vehicles and plant hire.
They have been used as temporary roadways, pedestrian pathways to ensure workers and site visitors can walk safely and they have been used as temporary car parks at festivals and agricultural events.
At a time when Health and Safety issues are paramount in the mind of employers the mats could be deemed essential. The mats ensure there is no build up of mud on the surface making it easier for people to hold their grip when walking.
The easy to use mats can be taken away quickly at the end of development with the minimum of fuss and no damage to the ground underneath.
For builders working on housing estates or new shopping developments, the ground protection mats can become a necessary piece of equipment.
