Our plastic heavy-duty plates meet the highest demands in terms of load-bearing capacity. They can be used universally, for example for mobile construction roads or as surface protection during the construction of energy parks. Depending on the substrate, the Maximum and Double Max plates can withstand loads of up to 200 tons, the heavy-duty plate Giant even over 200 tons.
The heavy-duty plates made of plastic are superior to a heavy-duty metal floor in a number of ways. One of the biggest plus points is the lighter weight of plastic plates compared to steel plates. In addition, there is no risk of damage from corrosion and penetrating moisture, rodents or insects with the protective plates made of plastic, as is the case, for example, with excavator mattresses made of wood. Added to this are the advantages of durability and ease of handling.
The heavy-duty plastic ground mats very high requirements. This makes it suitable for universal use. The plastic plates are suitable for carrying heavy loads and are, for example, ideally suited for the construction of temporary roadways for construction machinery. They are very popular as terrain slabs for construction roads in the construction of wind farms. They are also used in the construction industry for fastening the set-up areas of cranes. Heavy-duty plastic plates can be used to build construction roads with a slip-resistant floor. They avoid dangerous joints that occur when loose boards are laid.
Other examples of the areas of application of our heavy-duty plates made of plastic are:
First of all, you should know that the plates come in different sizes. So you are very flexible when protecting surfaces over a large area load distribution. How much you can load the heavy-duty plastic panels depends on the type of substrate. On dry and unpaved surfaces, our products can withstand a weight of up to 130 tons. This makes them suitable as driving plates for heavy dump trucks and excavators on construction sites. On paved surfaces, the maximum load capacity is up to 200 tons. The Giant heavy-duty mat can even withstand loads of over 200 tons. This makes them ideal, for example, for protecting sensitive road surfaces during heavy-duty industrial transport. They are also a good solution for preventing damage in industrial halls when transports for the installation of heavy machinery and equipment are pending.
With the heavy-duty plastic mats from LuxTek, a forklift and an employee are all that is needed to provide large areas with floor protection within a very short time. There, the anti-slip properties also pay off. The handling of our plates for heavy duty floors is easier compared to steel plates. The reason is that plastic panels weigh considerably less than metal panels. The connectors already integrated into the plates make handling convenient, because simple tools are completely sufficient for assembly.
LuxTek plastic sheets are very resistant to temperature. Their UV resistance also contributes to a long service life. While the surface protection made of boards and wooden plates is quickly destroyed by wetness and frost, the plastic plates are not damaged by it. So you do not have to reckon with weathering. Therefore, you can use the heavy-duty plastic panels for many years. When thinking about service life, please also consider your technology. If heavy vehicles sink into unprotected ground, there is often damage during towing. Repairs are expensive, especially for specialty vehicles and large construction vehicles. Investing in a high-quality and resilient surface protection is therefore always the better decision.
This question is particularly important if you cooperate with other companies on construction sites or heavy-duty transports. In these cases, it is a matter of each party clearly recognizing their property. At LuxTek you can order the heavy duty plastic plates with individualization. For this purpose, we can, for example, attach the name of your company or another identifying feature to the plates with a nameplate. The stability and load-bearing capacity of the plates for heavy-duty floor construction do not suffer.
Heavy-duty plastic plates, unlike steel plates, do not conduct electricity. This means they are an ideal base when overhead power lines or the overhead wires of road and rail lines need to be repaired. They reduce the risk of vehicle damage due to slipping on sloping surfaces. This is ensured by the good grip on the cross-surface. When evaluating the profitability of plastic panels, please consider another aspect. Compared to driving on completely unpaved surfaces, heavy-duty driving plates reduce fuel consumption for your trucks and construction vehicles. In addition, the use of the plates for driveways in open terrain protects the undercarriage of your construction vehicles and trucks. This also significantly extends their useful life.
Conclusion: The heavy-duty plastic plates are an all-around interesting thing. They are worthwhile as equipment for construction companies and haulage firms as well as for many other areas of application.
