Matrax 4x8 TNG long-lasting ground protection mats

Cost-Effective Alternative to Plywood

Unlike plywood, these HDPE mats will not warp, splinter or degrade, even in excessive heat and cold. Matrax 4x8 TNG ground protection mats are easy to clean and will maintain their properties over many uses, providing a great return on investment.

Matrax 4x8 lightweight ground protection mats

Lightweight – only 75 lbs.

Matrax 4x8 TNG mats are extremely lightweight enabling quick installation. At just 75 lbs., they are easy to "Throw-N-Go" and move around a job site. The light mat weight creates less stress on workers and helps to reduce freight costs.

Ergonomic hand holes, which are molded into the mats versus rough cut after production, provide ease of handling and minimize stress on the mat.

The standard translucent-white color helps keep the mat cooler in high heat and allows light to filter through, helping to mitigate damage to grass and sensitive ground cover.

Matrax 4x8 ground protection mats with unique tread design

Unique Tread Design

The Matrax 4x8 TNG ground protection mats are designed with a unique, non-mirrored tread design from side A to side B. A vertical cleat line on side A aligns with a horizontal cleat line at that same location on side B. This prevents point loading and allows mats to be stacked perfectly aligned on a pallet or in a truck bed – no need to offset the mats for stacking.

The tread pattern on both sides of the mats helps provide contact with the ground and creates a safe surface for workers. Holes in all four corners allow the mats to be connected with zip ties or cleats.

Innovative Engineering

Matrax 4x8 TNG ground protection mats are made with an injection-molding process to ensure product consistency, quality and strength. HDPE plastic has high tensile strength, chemical and heat resistance, surface hardness and abrasion resistance.
