Ground mats offer a viable alternative to concrete products due to their versatility and ease of installation. We offer four different FirmGround ground mats: FirmGround39, FirmGround45, FirmGround70 and FirmGroundHeavy.
The main difference between each product is its relative compressive strength. The entire range of ground mats is manufactured in the UK, and all are made from recycled high-density polyethylene. More polymers are added to decrease brittleness in the ground mats at low temperatures.
The individual ground mat sections clipped together easily, allowing the user to construct a surface ideal for areas with small-scale volumes of vehicular traffic, and when grass-filled for pedestrian areas when grass- or gravel-filled.
These mats are specifically designed to facilitate water drainage, while allowing pockets at the base to retain some water. Not only does this prevent grass from getting waterlogged, but it also reduces the risk of grass dying through lack of hydration.
FirmGround39 is an adaptable interlocking ground mat, ideal for gravel and grass infill. It has a compressive strength of 200 tonnes per square metre when filled with gravel, making it a suitable surface for pedestrian areas and areas with small amounts of vehicular traffic.
FirmGround45 can be employed in similar building developments to the FirmGround39. It has been designed to tolerate a slightly greater compression, has a higher infiltration rate, and has a compressive strength of 200 tonnes per square metre when filled. The resulting surface is perfect for pedestrian use, car parks, and access roads.
FirmGround70 has similar properties to the FirmGround45, making it a great options pedestrian use, car parks, and access roads. However, the FirmGround70 ground mat is designed to withstand a higher weight – 240 tonnes per square metre when filled.
FirmGroundHeavy is designed to have a compressive strength of over 300 tonnes per square metre unfilled. This allows the ground mat can withstand fully loaded wagon loads. In common with the other three grounds mats within this product range, it can be used in pedestrian areas, as well as car parks and access roads.
