Ground-Guards’ innovative MaxiTrack® Mat proves that plastic is fantastic

Ground-Guards Ltd – leading ground protection innovators across a wide spectrum of industries, including construction, civil engineering, energy, utilities, military, housebuilding, event management, heritage sites and more – has developed a revolutionary new ground care system called MaxiTrack, which is turning the ground care industry on its head.

MaxiTrack is a super strong, environmentally friendly ground mat that is lightweight, easy to lay and safe to carry by hand.
It is made from a lightweight polymer called Zetralene which is five times stronger than standard HDPE and certified to support heavy loads of up to 130 tonnes.

Despite this extreme strength, MaxiTrack is also remarkably light. Mats only weigh 40kg, which means that two workers can safely handle them without the need for expensive lifting equipment, thereby providing a much-needed cost-effective alternative to traditional aluminium panels.

It is the perfect solution for laying down portable access roads or providing temporary ground protection for construction projects, industrial sites and large events.

MaxiTrack mats are made from 100% recycled plastic and are also recyclable at the end of their lifetime, satisfying the growing need for a sustainable ground care solution. They are also silicosis and contamination safe.
The new design features a simple but strong bolt connection system for fast, easy joining, as well as clever overlapping flange joints that eliminate board movement and reduces mud seepage.

Ground-Guards believe that MaxiTrack offers a much more productive, efficient and sustainable approach to ground protection, and that no other mat on the market can match its durability, lightness and easy of handling.

Dan Devenish, Head of Global Sales for Ground-Guards, says: “The easy-to-assemble MaxiTrack design makes it one of the strongest and most versatile ground protection systems available.

“MaxiTrack is exactly what our customers have been asking for: a solution to ground care that is lightweight, durable and simple to handle without the need of expensive or specialist lifting equipment.

“Approximately 60 MaxiTrack mats can be installed within one hour by a team of three plus a forklift driver.

“This speed and handleability generates fantastic efficiencies and helps increase the productivity of the workforce.

“And the fact that we guarantee MaxiTrack unbreakable up to 130 tonnes gives our customers the confidence to use a plastic solution.

“We believe that our new MaxiTrack product is the most heavy duty, man-handleable trackway system in the world.”

The company believes it is now in the unique position of being able to offer the industry a full range of economically priced ground protection solutions tailored to any specific need, from light duty pedestrian walkways to medium or heavy duty temporary site compounds, roadways, car parks and event floorings.

Ground-Guards Ltd is a division of the global GreenTek Group, established in 1969 and based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.
