DURADECK LIGHTWEIGHT ACCESS AND GROUND PROTECTION MATS
DuraDeck lightweight composite mats are incredibly versatile and easy to install, transport and handle manually, and are a must-have for small and large airfields alike. These 8’ x 4’ x 0.5” panels can be installed for temporary or semi-permanent operations or simply loose-laid for short term use as temporary roadways, access routes, aircraft apron and ramp extensions and hangar and maintenance flooring; or use as a reusable anti-slip alternative to plywood. Prevent rutting and churning of the ground to ensure your aircraft always have an easily maneuverable path to and from taxiways. Park smaller aircraft on DuraDeck to prevent sinking and keep mud and grasses safely away from landing gear. DuraDeck is a simple system that offers several options to provide protection and performance properties customized for your particular application.
Choice of Traction Pattern
DuraDeck incorporates traction into both sides of the mat, allowing you to accommodate both the type of traffic on the mat and the ground beneath it. Our double-hash "Rugged" pattern is ⅜" deep at its highest point and is best suited to muddy or unstable terrain. Place the rugged side down to grab the ground, or up to grab your vehicle's tires. Our low-profile "Pedestrian" pattern provides an anti-slip surface that help to protect personnel as well as the ground surface. We also offer the option of not having traction on one side for sensitive surfaces like granite. Talk to our matting experts today to assess which combination of rugged/pedestrian/smooth traction best suits your needs.
Choice of Color
DuraDeck mats come standard in UV-resistant carbon black, however white mats are also available (and recommended for use in climates with fluctuating temperatures to minimize expansion and resulting curling). Custom colors are available.
Choice of Connection System
DuraDeck gives you a choice of connection system. For short term installations, our standard DuraLink connectors are installed and removed easily and allow for quick reconfiguration of your layout. Choose DuraLink HD connection plates for a more permanent or rigid installation.
