Manufactured from 100% recycled polyethylene, it is reusable – again and again – and is fully recyclable after use.

GroundMate is currently available in two formats:

GroundMate ground protection mats provide incredible value and efficient ground cover. Suitable for pedestrian and medium to heavy weight vehicular traffic. It is currently available in grey with an anti-slip tread pattern finish on one side and a ‘diamond embossed’ finish on the opposite side.

GroundMate LT (lite) is a thinner mat designed to provide highly effective cover for hard, firm and/or decorative surfaces that need protection from vehicles, such as forklift and cart traffic. It is lightweight, cost-effective, simple to install and requires no fixings. As it can be used repeatedly, it provides a more professional and cost effective solution than plywood.

Purpose made GroundMate products can be produced to suit ultra-heavy load vehicle applications (minimum order quantities apply).
