FODS Trackout Mats

What are trackout mats?

Trackout mats mitigate the risks of aggregate being lodged in vehicle tires and transported into traffic.

Entrances and exits to construction worksites can get messy quickly–especially when you’re driving large equipment or heavy machinery over terrains such as turf or hardscape. Trackout mats (also called reusable construction entrances), were created to deform tires as vehicles pass over, without damaging the tire. Rows of staggered pyramids on the mat dislodge sediment, stone, and debris, ensuring that your vehicles don’t track mud, stones, and other worksite detritus onto main roads. 

Why are trackout mats important?

State and federal environmental regulations require that construction sites have systems in place to ensure that debris is not tracked into main thoroughfares or trafficked areas. Trackout mats help you ensure regulatory compliance by reducing construction site trackout onto roadways and preventing road hazards. 

Traditional construction entrances require 80-100 tons of rock to build, and the entrance must be constantly refreshed by hauling in additional gravel to cover the mud. Then, all contaminated waste must be disposed of in a landfill after the project is over. By using trackout mats instead of these traditional construction entrances, you can save significant time, money, and labor.
