AlturnaMats - The Original Ground Protection Mat

It is always so interesting to see great products and how they can be used to improve work. I'm very much used to seeing plywood used in the instances in the photos above, and now have learned of AlturnaMATS, The Original drive-on, ground protection mats and how superior they are to using plywood for ground protection.

Plywood vs. AlturnaMATS

The advantages of AlturnaMATS over plywood are many, particularly cost savings over the long run. Plywood cracks and splinters under heavy vehicle loads. AlturnaMATS never do. There is very little tire traction with plywood. When wet, plywood becomes slippery, waterlogged, heavy and is difficult to clean of mud. AlturnaMATS are easily rinsed clean using a regular garden hose. To see cost savings, see here: savings over plywood.

The AlturnaMATS are built tough with a maximum traction diamond plate tread design. These rugged mats are made of 1/2" thick polyethylene so they are virtually indestructible. They withstand vehicles weighing up to 60 tons, bend but do not break and they're guaranteed for a full six years. AlturnaMATS have been tested in record cold and heat.

With AlturnaMATS, getting stuck is virtually eliminated. They are available smooth on one side or smooth on both sides, ideal for removing dirt of gravel.
