MEGADECK® HD HEAVY-DUTY HDPE MATTING
Heaviest-duty Modular Composite Matting
MegaDeck HD modular composite matting is suited to many applications in the aviation industry, including portable helicopter landing pads, temporary runways for UAVs, temporary taxiways and taxiway extensions, aircrafts aprons, ramp extensions, hangar and maintenance flooring and access roads.
MegaDeck HD mats are available in two sizes; small panels measure 7.5’ x 7.5’ with a 6.5’ x 6.5’ usable surface due to 1’ flanges, and large panels consist of two small panels permanently bolted together to create a 1.5’ x 14’ mat with a 6.5’ x 13’ usable surface. The resulting seam acts as a built-in drainage groove that rainwater to the edges of the installed mats, maintaining the integrity of the ground beneath the installation. These 4.25” thick panels feature a hollow, ribbed interior that allows mats to be lighter relative to their size and distributes weights throughout the mat to reduce impact pressure to the ground. Our proprietary manufacturing process ensures a completely sealed mat with seams heat welded from the same HDPE blend as the panels to create one contiguous surface. While many traditional temporary runway and roadway systems require special handling or over-sized containers, our mats are specifically designed to ship in flat in palletized stacks that fit perfectly in standard ISO shipping containers, saving you time and money.
All-Metal Cam Locks and Overlapping Flanges Make a Lasting Connection
MegaDeck’s HD unique connection system is incredibly simple, yet offers innumerous benefits to your airfield installation. 1” overlapping flanges prevent dust and mud from migrating to the surface and direct rainwater runoff or chemical spills to the sides of the mats or spill containment systems. Large anticorrosive metal cam locks secure mats together along the flanges, creating an incredibly strong seam that distributes weights across mats while preventing differential movement. Cams are sealed to the mat to prevent soil contamination, and since flanges are solid HDPE, locks can be replaced in the field without compromising the integrity of the mat. MegaDeck’s HD flanges feature a rounded edge that makes it easy to nudge mats into place with a standard forklift. Other matting systems can be very difficult to line up to their locking positions, but MegaDeck’s HD large cam receivers are easily guided into place using a pry bar. MegaDeck’s HD cam locks are incredibly simple to operate using a standard hex key or our ergonomic locking tool.
HDPE Blend Formulated for Performance
Signature’s unique blend of virgin and post-industrial HDPE and specialized additives combine to make an incredibly strong material increased longevity and performance characteristics. Anti-stat additives minimize static electricity and the danger of sparking while UV inhibitors protect against sun damage and combat expansion and related bowing caused by temperature variances. The proprietary MegaDeck HD HDPE formula is non-absorptive, allowing mats to be easily cleaned without the danger of cross-contamination from site to site. All of Signature’s HDPE composite mats are 100% recyclable – we even offer a unique buy-back program so decades from now, when you are ready to replace your MegaDeck HD mats, we will recycle your old mats into new mats at a fraction of the price.
