x:tek 46 next generation high performance driving plates with smartGRIP the unique 3-stage profile design and the innovative channel system. More than 12 years of practical experience and 2 years of product design have gone into the development of the x:tek driving plate made of plastic. The result is probably one of the most functional and economical drive plates on the market. There are so many innovations and advantages in the x:tek moving plate as in hardly any other moving plate available on the market, so that we do not know where to start first.
Innovative plastic drive plates for mobile construction roads and platforms
The smartGRIP profile design is the first in the world with 3 different profile heights implemented in one profile design (0.1mm / 3 mm / 6 mm). One of the goals in the development of the tread design was to achieve the requirement that the tread works perfectly for pedestrians as well as for vehicles and construction machinery. When it comes to pedestrian traffic, the focus is on the safe, trip-free and pleasant walkability of the treads. For vehicles and construction equipment, on the other hand, the profiling must produce maximum traction even in the most difficult terrain with steep longitudinal and/or transverse slopes under the most adverse conditions (rain, snow, mud).
Symmetrical & multidirectional
Another outstanding feature of the smartGRIP tread design is the symmetrically perfectly arranged tread pattern. This symmetrical arrangement of the tread ensures that regardless of the direction of travel, the direction of use or the direction in which the tread plates are laid, the tread pattern constantly produces the maximum possible grip, i.e. multidirectional.
Water & mud
The multidirectional channel system of the x:tek pads with smartGRIP was designed to effectively drain water, dirt and mud from the pads in a barrier-free, fast and targeted manner. In any case, the slightly rough surface of the driving plate reduces the adhesion of dirt, similar to the lotus blossom effect.
Stress-reduced & more durable
Due to the sophisticated design, we were also able to evenly absorb the stress in the material (HDPE plastic) caused by driving over the plates (carpet effect) and distribute it into the plate or material. This is made possible by the channel system of our design, as in the area of the multidirectional channel system the material thickness is always constant.
Sophisticated & Economical
If you look closely at the smartGRIP profile, you will hardly notice a horizontal line in the profile design. Why is this important? At the latest when you or your employees have to clean the treads after work, you will know it. Normally, the panels are placed vertically or horizontally on the edge and sprayed with a high-pressure cleaner. Dirt and water always remain on every horizontal profile element because it cannot run off. With smartGRIP profiling, you save up to 15% water, time and costs when cleaning the driving plates.
Detailed & Optimized
The fact that we have really thought of all the details in the profile design can be seen when stacking the track pads with the smartGRIP profile design on both sides. The profiles do not lie congruently on top of each other, but nest or interlock with a slight offset. This effectively reduces the height by up to 25% (55 cm instead of 76 cm) and the transport volume by up to 38% (1.34 m3 instead of 1.85 m3) based on a set of 30 panels.
Lighter & easier to handle
Compared to all other solutions made of wood, aluminum or steel, plastic moving panels have the big advantage that they are much lighter (x:tek 46 = 32 kg light) and more compact (x:tek 46 = 2000 x 1220 mm). Due to these characteristics, the x:tek driving plates are laid and coupled or connected to each other exclusively by hand. On the one hand, this saves expensive machine hours, and on the other hand, the wheel loader or excavator can be used during this time for what it was actually made for. As a rule of thumb, you can assume the following values for the laying time of x:tek 46 high-performance driving plates: 30 x:tek driving plates are laid in 30 minutes by 3 employees, depending on the connection technology used. This corresponds to a 2-lane mobile construction road or driving lane of 30 running meters or a platform with a total area of almost 75 sqm.
Corner holes & center holes
The x:tek mobile platforms have a 12-hole system to couple or connect the individual mobile platforms with each other. There is a connecting hole at each of the 4 corners of the panel, and there are also double center holes in the middle of the longitudinal and transverse sides of the panel (4 sides with 2 holes each = 8 holes). The 12-hole system thus enables both longitudinal and transverse coupling of the drive plates. It is also possible to couple the drive plates longitudinally in a half unit. The advantage of the center holes is noticeable on very uneven, softened or rutted floors. If the x:tek drive plates are connected to each other at the center hole by means of connection technology, no gap or height offset can occur at the transition of the plates. This reduces stress (wear) in the plate and increases the safety and cleanliness of a platform or construction road produced in this way.
Practical & Cleaner
We have deliberately dispensed with so-called finger holes, i.e. milled-out hand grips, because of the resulting reduced product life and unsuitability for practical use. Grip holes weaken drive plates, so that experience has shown that they break at precisely this point. In addition, mud and sludge would be washed onto the plates when driving over them. As a result, the driving plates become increasingly muddy and slippery, and when the driving plates are left, the mud is transferred or driven out into the public space, for example.
Transport & Logistics
When developing the x:tek driving plates, special thought was given to construction site logistics or logistics in general. The dimensions and the form factor of the x:tek mobile panels were deliberately dimensioned to be as small as necessary and as large as possible. The result is logistics, transport and loading space optimized dimensions of 2000 mm x 1220 mm. This means that the x:tek driving plate can be transported on almost any vehicle or trailer. For safe transport and quick unloading, we recommend our galvanized steel pallet, which is also transport-optimized without oversize, with folding safety brackets for quick unloading. If this is not mobile and flexible enough for you, we have our attachable wheels for the steel pallet to be able to move it self-sufficiently without forklift, wheel loader or other vehicle.
