WHAT IS MATRAX?

Matrax is a lightweight plastic ground protection system. This system is capable of supporting loads from heavy equipment and large crowds. Matrax panels interlock, forming a stable base for large stages and grandstands or safe access for forklifts, site traffic, and heavy goods vehicles.

Translucent with optimized load distribution

Matrax offers an all-in-one solution that combines several properties relevant to floorings. Thanks to its translucent quality, the ground protection system provides optimized load distribution, even surfaces, and protects sensitive turfs.

A festival that takes place on the grass track of a race track or a concert that takes place on the green area of a stadium needs these solutions. These situations require solid stage foundations, work surfaces or access roads, and additional lawn protection. The functional, drivable event flooring is suitable for temporary use.

For natural and artificial lawns

It can also maintain natural and artificial lawns. This system creates smooth, stumble-free, and stable surfaces for all event participants. You can also drive on this flooring with smaller construction vehicles.

PRODUCT FEATURES FOR MATRAX

The Matrax ground protection system features translucent panels. These panels permit sunlight allowing natural grass to grow for 14+ days. The individual panels have non-skid surfaces and solid undersides. This combination offers seamless contact with surfaces beneath.

Made of 100% recycled materials

Panels are lightweight, enabling quick-handling, deployment, and transport. The Matrax HD system uses 100% recycled HDPE materials and is manufactured completely within the USA.

The lightweight ground protection mats are available in grey or translucent white. They are 3.8 cm (1.5 in) high and weigh only about 21.5 kilograms (47.5 lbs) each. They measure 1.22 by 1.22 meters (48 x 48 in) – 10 centimeters (4 in) less on each side in terms of cover dimensions. We use high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for production.

Stable, durable and reusable

The thermoplastic material of this type is stable and durable. Also, the material is 100% reusable. The slightly structured surface ensures optimal hold. The panels, connected in pairs, are delivered on pallets (16 pallets à 50 panels). Each pallet is equipped with 25 pairs of mats. If required, we are happy to take care of transport, construction, breakdown, and final cleaning.

MATRAX: DID YOU KNOW?

Matrax has several advantages. The extremely low weight facilitates and accelerates both transport and the construction and breakdown phases. Altogether, the system offers easy handling. The simple and intelligent design comes with an integrated vertical locking system and dispenses with loose parts. This makes it a lightweight and manually installable solution with panels that are easy to connect and disassemble.

Translutent

As a hybrid system, the solution proves to be a real all-rounder. In addition to balanced load distribution and flush surfaces, the stable ground protection mats also protect sensitive lawns. This is particularly important in the case of natural grass. Thanks to their translucent nature, the panels promote photosynthesis. This means that natural turf can be covered for longer than with other drivable event floorings.

What are the Advantages of Matrax?

  • Pedestrian-friendly textured grip and surface flush cam-lock connections create a seamless working surface.
  • The weight distribution of load protects the sub-surface and reduces compression.
  • The HDPE material is 100% recyclable and is proudly manufactured in the USA.
  • The internal geometry combined with the product’s physical properties results in a mat that attains a load rating of 80,000 pounds per square foot.
  • Optimal performance on flat, stable ground

OPTIONAL EXTRAS FOR MATRAX

The corresponding tool required for laying the ground protection or fixing the connections is included in the scope of delivery. Furthermore, you can extend the ground protection system with flat ramps. These ramps are suitable for wheelchairs, which comply with the US ADA standards for accessibility under building law.

Ramps for Wheelchair Users

The ADA ramps create smooth transitions to the adjacent floor and ensure gentle access and exit for wheelchair users. These are also ideal for smaller vehicles that can drive on the light yet robust event floor covering. Matrax is a versatile ground protection system that covers sensitive surfaces and many different needs.

What Are the Extensions for Matrax?

  • Ramp accessories to ensure smooth transitions to sub-surface
  • ADA Ramps to facilitate wheelchair access
  • eps offers an optional range of underlays to protect the sub-surface and adapt to ground conditions
  • Transition products to seamlessly connect Matrax panels with other ground- and turf protection systems
  • Compatible with eps’ range of drivable and pedestrian flooring
  • Cable Protectors are available to safeguard equipment and audiences on the event floor.
