Reusable Ground Protection Mats Build Roads and Save Money

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

For building temporary roadways, groundprotection mats from Quality Mat are an industry-leading choice. Since the mid-1970s when Quality Mat Company invented the rig mat as we know it today, oil companies and pipeline contractors have depended on their mats for handling the biggest and the smallest jobs with ease. Providing a reliable source of safety and stabilization, ground protection mats are made from full contact treated wood, oak, and steel. Each mat can last up to 15 years in the field and can bear higher loads than conventional heavy machinery and equipment.

Protecting the ground below from the harshest abuse by the treads and tires of the machines protects both the environment and the construction equipment from damage. At 2140 pounds, a full truckload can carry 21 mats at a time, cutting your transportation costs by 40%. With their recyclability, you can reuse these mats many times over; making sure you get the most for your money.

Generally used for building pipelines or constructing temporary roads, these ground protection mats are designed to leave the area of the worksite exactly as you found it when the job is complete. If you’re looking for the solution to your access road building and ground protection problems, Quality Mat has the answer.

While I won't be building any roadways any time soon. I will keep this in mind. You never know... I do have a driveway that needs some work.

It's too bad all constructions companies don't know about this! Might save someones' lawn.

Corinne Schmitt said...

I wish I had read this a month ago. My best friend had her back yard redone and the trucks damaged her front and side lawn miserably coming and back and forth.

Wow, that is very durable as it could last for many years!

This type of mat can be commonly seen on construction sites. It is also used for covering broken roads temporarily so that vehicles can pass by. These are amazing products because they are extremely tough and can survive harsh weather or excessive heat from the sun. I wonder how much they cost though.
