The "supreme discipline" for plastic ground protection plates and trackway mats is their use under special conditions, such as when driving over a traffic island, which can be found in heavy transports. Here it is not uncommon for so-called traffic-guiding measures (VLM for short) to be used. As the definition suggests, the traffic must be directed or guided by experts. Of course, this is only done in compliance with strict regulatory requirements. These specifications include, on the one hand, the use of traffic signs, traffic facilities and traffic signals. On the other hand, however, the safeguarding of the road infrastructure.
trackway mats for heavy transport
This is precisely where ground protection or trackway mats come into play. For such heavy transports, as already mentioned, only specialists are used, who in turn ensure a smooth operation. So it is not surprising that you have to meticulously separate the wheat from the chaff when selecting the ground protection plates, trackway mats and heavy-duty panels.
Up to 30 trackway mats in the escort vehicle / advance vehicle
Any error in planning, any shortcoming in the material used and any delay in the process can have catastrophic consequences. For this reason, escort vehicles and / or advance vehicles (usually sprinters, vans, etc.) are used for heavy transport operations with the aim of responding to any eventuality in advance.
These advance vehicles logically also carry the necessary equipment for ground protection. The s:tek high-performance floor protection plate as well as the x:tek high-performance trackway mat and the MaxiTrack heavy-duty trackway mat not only meet all requirements in this "supreme discipline", they can also be stored in a space-saving manner.
trackway mats laying over traffic islands
Up to 30 panels can be carried on an escort vehicle. This means that nothing stands in the way of quick and easy laying at critical points, such as curbs, kerbs, traffic islands or traffic circles.
In addition to this special feature, both panels also offer other properties that clearly set them apart from other products and make them the first choice among professionals who are responsible for escorting heavy loads.
In particular, the quick and easy joining of the slabs should be highlighted. Many other slabs on the market have either no or insufficient possibilities for joining, which naturally results in the fact that the slabs slip and thus cannot perform the actual core task.
Of course, these are not the only features that make these two plates stand out above all others. In any case, the extreme flexibility of both systems should also be mentioned. Especially for heavy transports, this is another key feature that is repeatedly emphasized by customers.
