The injection-molding process produces ground protection mats that ensure product consistency, quality and strength. Matrax uses virgin, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic — no recycled material. Injection molded HDPE materials are lightweight and strong. HDPE also has a high tensile strength, chemical and heat resistance, surface hardness and abrasion resistance.

Why Buy Matrax 4×8 TNG Ground Protection Mats Instead of  Plywood?

Unlike plywood that warps, splinters and degrades quickly, the Matrax 4×8 TNG ground protection mats are weather resistant, will not absorb oil and contaminants, are easy to clean and will maintain their properties over many uses.


  • At just 75 lbs, the light mat weight enables quick installation
  • Ergonomic hand holes are molded into every mat and come standard for easy handling
  • The 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
  • Holes in all four corners allow mats to be connected with zip ties or cleats
  • Standard white translucent color helps protect grass from burning in high heat
  • The low profile, gripping tread pattern on both sides helps reduce slippage, and is offset from side to side to prevent point loading and to permit mats to be stacked perfectly aligned on a pallet or in a truck bed
  • Made of HDPE plastic, the mats will not warp, splinter and degrade, even in excessive heat and cold, will not absorb oil and other chemicals and is easy to clean.
