Does your construction site cause you concerns due to its bad accessibility? Are you at a loss what to do because your heavy equipment keeps sinking in the soft subsoil that should actually be protected? These problems are now a thing of the past thanks to the ground protection mats and outrigger pads.

By means of ground protection mats, you can create a safe access path to unpaved surfaces, such as construction sites, while providing your machines with a solid base on which they can operate. Are you dealing with areas that must be protected against damage and - as a result - are hard to access? Let's think for example of festival grounds, golf courses, gardens, cemeteries ... Thanks to the ground protection mats, you can also easily reach these zone.

The ground protection mats not only protect the terrain and your machine but, what's more, also yourself and your own safety. Since both employers and employees are obliged to makes sure that work can be performed safely at all times, using ground protection mats is a logical and simple solution in such situations.

PROBLEM: THE MACHINE SLIPS AND/OR SINKS

SOLUTION: SYNTHETIC OUTRIGGER PADS

Help, my machine is slipping and sinking! If you did manage to reach the desired zone thanks to the ground protection mats, then another problem can occur: the machine sinks into the soft subsoil. In that case, synthetic outrigger pads offer the solution. The increased surface created by means of the plates, better distributes the ground pressure and supports the machine on delicate surfaces.

Furthermore, the plates are very compact and, as a result, easy to stack and store.

The ground protection mats and outrigger pads can easily be carried and moved thanks to the integrated handles (on both ends on the ground protection mats) and the carrying straps (on the outrigger pads).
