Introducing Matrax 4×8 TNG Ground Protection Mats
Newfoundland, N.J. Building on its success as the industry leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance, heavy-duty drivable portable flooring, Matrax is proud to introduce the Matrax 4×8 TNG Ground Protection Mat.
The First Injection-molded 4′ x 8′ Composite Mat on the Market
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.
Designed to “Throw ‘n’ Go!”
Weighing in at 70 lbs, Matrax 4×8 TNG ground protection mats are considerably lighter than other 4′ x 8′ mats, creating less stress on workers and helping to reduce freight costs. Other distinctive features include:
- Ergonomic hand holds and connection holes molded into the mat during the production process. Typically holes are rough cut into mats post-production, which adds stress to the mat.
- The 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 – on need to offset the mats for stacking.
- The Matrax 4×8 TNG mat is white with a certain factor of translucency to keep the mat cooler and allow light to pass through. This helps reduce heat stress to guard against burning or damaging grassy areas.
- The connection holes are placed to align with other mats on the market, so users can easily connect them with existing inventory.
Ideal for a Wide Range of Applications
The Matrax 4×8 TNG Mat is designed to provide safe site access, improve soft and unstable ground conditions, and provide protection against irreparable rutting and other damage to turf and green spaces. Able to support 80-ton loads, the mats will safely support wheeled equipment, machinery and workers. The mats can also be used to create pedestrian walkways through and around construction sites. The ideal alternative to plywood, Matrax 4×8 TNG Mats will not splinter, warp or degrade, are resistant to chemical absorption, and can be used for multiple projects over many years.
As the manufacturer and distributor of the Matrax 4×8 TNG ground protection mats, Matrax is offering factory-direct pricing at $175/mat.
