Ground Protection Mats

Discount Ramps offers a wide selection of high-quality ground protection mats at affordable prices! These mats quickly create temporary roadways or platforms over grass and other landscaping features, and will last through multiple projects without needing to be replaced. Ground protection mats also prevent ruts in your turf caused by heavy equipment and machinery, without warping or cracking after repeated use. Weather-proof and durable, ground protection mats are a cost-effective alternative to traditional plywood.

Plywood versus Polyethylene

Why use expensive mats instead of affordable plywood? Because it's a better long-term investment! Plywood has a limited life space, with a porous surface that soaks up spilled chemicals, water and oils. It can't be cleaned thoroughly, and doesn't come with a standardized load bearing capacity like polyethylene mats. In inclement weather plywood can get slippery and dangerous, whereas polyethylene mats are engineered with non-slip traction surfaces. They are the best investment for your job sites.

Features of Ground Protection Mats

Choosing the appropriate protection mats for your job site is crucial for preserving the environment and preventing your equipment from getting stuck. Ground protection mats are a cost-effective alternative to soggy, warped plywood boards, and here are some of the features you can expect to find:

  • Traction designs such as diamond plate and chevron
  • Weight capacities up to 120 tons
  • Chemical-resistance to spills
  • Weather-proof
  • Nigh indestructible
  • Clear options that reduce absorbed heat for less grass damage
