Dura-Base Composite Mats

Dura-Base Composite Mats


Dimensions:         4.27m (L)  x  2.44m (W)

                                    105mm (H)

Usable Surface:  3.96m (L)  x  2.13m (W)

Weight:                    454 kg

Load rating:           Over 100 tonnes

Pure compressive load capacity is approximately 600 psi (40 kg/cm2).


  • Reusable platforms and roads in place of traditional methods of trucking aggregates or building concrete pads
  • With a single semi-trailer can hold up to 420sqm worth of mat coverage, composite matting can reduce or replace the need for single-use materials, reducing overall landfill waste.
  • Reduce emissions from overall truck movements required to deliver, refill and remove the equivalent in aggregates and fill material.
  • Dura-Base mats are made of non-porous HDPE which minimises the risk of cross-contamination while working in sensitive sites.
  • It installs rapidly, forming a protective load-spreading layer to minimise topsoil disturbance during operations.
  • Helps to preserve any underlying plant root substructure for optimal chance of regrowth. It also prevents equipment from rutting the ground and potentially exposing acid sulfate soils to the air.
  • By minimising ground disturbance during construction, Dura-Base reduces remediation works required after completion of the project.
  • Laying down Dura-Base mats does not generate dust compared to the installation and top up of crushed rock pads. They also act as a layer of dust suppression.
  • Dura-Base are reusable over multiple sites and projects. They are made of HDPE which are 100% recyclable after the expected lifecycle of over 15 years under standard use conditions.



Applications of composite mats on rail projects and their advantages - from urgent site access to minimising environmental disturbance.


Environmental benefits of composite mats for common ground issues encountered during construction of pipelines, transmission lines, substations, solar farms and windfarms.
