Aeroscopia Museum

Our distributor’s teams set up a rolling track to transfer aircraft to the Aeroscopia Museum whilst protecting the public highway.

Forestry and Environmental

Heavy Duty TuffTrakST shown here being used as a rugged temporary roadway installed recently, with a full geotextile underlay, for an upcoming UK forestry & environmental project.

Borehole Access

TuffTrak ST access roadway is being laid to provide access to hundreds of borehole drilling pads that are being assembled daily for enabling 200 bore holes to be investigated over the next 16 weeks.

Flooded Access

Another installation of TuffTrak ST. Here it is being used to gain access over flooded ground for transmission pylon access. Used for heavy duty equipment’s access on vital maintenance whilst ground is very soft and severely flooded.

Anyone for cricket!

Any one for cricket!! It’s not only muddy fields that customers require protecting. TuffTrak is used on farmland and areas of environmental interest but here is some nice new tarmac.

Transmission Project

It’s a crazy busy Friday again for TuffTrak customer, Grassform, as they finish off this mammoth 3 kilometre long temporary trackway installation on a large overhead line transmission project!

Composite Mats vs Wood: Why Switching From Wood Could Save You Thousands!

Plywood is the most popular and cheapest form of wooden ground protection. There are a number of different options for wood mats such as softwood or hardwood, and solid or laminated plywood. They are usually used for steel tracked vehicles and the load ratings are indefinitive and can vary from sheet to sheet, and the load capacity also deteriorates over time. Although plywood is a cheaper option, this type of ground protection has many downsides and are not cheaper in the long term due to their shorter life expectancy compared to polyethylene mats.
