A new ground protection and access system for which the certified load bearing capacity can be calculated in advance is destined to make sites safer.
Ground protection and access firm Timbermat Ltd is offering for hire what it claims is the only system on the market with tested and certified load calculations.
The Emtek ground protection and access mats are engineered to support specified weights and provide additional safety measures to prevent heavy equipment toppling over when operating on unstable or soft ground.
The laminating technology said to be of superior strength compared to standard mats, enabling higher load carrying capacities with certified load calculations. It will outperform any other mat system on the market, said Timbermat.
“Our Emtek ground protection and access mats are perfect for all equipment as their load bearing capacity can be calculated in advance,’ says Timbermat’s Managing Director, John Roberts. “This is a question we are frequently asked by contractors and engineers and a problem we have been looking to solve for some time now.
“The mats can be designed and built to customer specifications, and manufactured to carry weights far in excess of standard mats twice their thickness, which also means the cost of transporting Emtek mats can be up to 50% less.”
