What Are the Different Types of Bog Mats?
Bog mats are typically made from timber or plastics. Our DURA-BASE bog mats are constructed with High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) alongside our proprietary mix of UV stabilisers and static dissipaters.
They are engineered by a team of expert technicians to provide a versatile thermoplastic that is specifically designed as a ground covering. This material gives a continuous solid surface for our customers to work from.
DURA-BASE bog mats were developed alongside the US military and have been used in major projects for over 16 years. They are renowned as the premier composite ground protection mat on the market.
What Are the Benefits of Using Bog Mats?
These mats can provide a range of construction and access solutions in a variety of fields. Our DURA-BASE bog mats can be used to create temporary roads and surfaces that reduce the damage to the underlying land.
They spread heavy loads across a wider area, helping to minimise the impact to the ground. This boosts stability and improves access. They are particularly useful as temporary road solutions in wet or heavily trafficked areas.
DURA-BASE bog mats can help to:
- Minimise transportation, construction and reclamation costs
- Reduce the costs of placing and disposing liner
- Prevent spills or other damage to the site
- Improve construction site stability and safety
