Plastic ground protection plates protect surfaces (e.g. for events or temporary parking areas) and create access routes to green areas of all kinds. Their load capacity depends on their thickness and the nature of the underground. If you have any questions about our ground protection plates, please feel free to contact us for personal advice.
With LuxTek you get soil protection mats for very different areas of application. They are made of robust plastic. The plastic plates are considerably lighter than metal plates for area protection. This results in advantages for handling on site as well as for loading and unloading. These advantages predestine the plastic soil protection mats for use at an event organiser and as equipment for companies in the gardening and landscaping sector. The lower weight of the plastic plates compared to those made of metal means that you can also efficiently save on transport costs.
You can order our plastic plates in different colours. They are available in several thicknesses, which differ in terms of load capacity. For example, you can load the 15-millimetre-thick plates with up to 15 tonnes on consolidated green areas. This prevents damage to the lawns if you are an event organiser and wish to transform sports facilities into a concert arena. This means that our plastic soil protection mats are easily suitable for use as event floors. On paved floors, all plates have a load capacity of more than 20 tons.
The Proflex plates even carry a weight of up to 50 tons. They can therefore also be used, for example, as excavator mats or to protect roads and squares in access routes for medium-heavy construction vehicles. Please note the differences in the guideline values for the load capacity on different undergrounds. Further examples of use are:
Depending on the model, the soil protection mats made of plastic have a structured surface profile on one or both sides. They therefore belong to the category of slip-resistant products and offer a high level of safety for vehicles and people. This prevents vehicles from getting stuck in the terrain when transporting equipment or material. These properties predestine the plastic soil protection mats as protection for the ground and the users if, for example, you want to set up a temporary parking space on a field for an event. The safety provided by the slip resistance also has a positive effect on the conversion of gardens and parks as well as on temporary paths during outdoor events.
As a user, you benefit from further advantages of soil protection. One of the most important advantages is the protection provided by the plastic plates when maintaining the turf during excavation work. The plastic soil protection mats are also very useful when erecting ladders, for example for pruning trees. They increase safety for gardeners and landscapers by preventing the ladders from sinking in. In addition, you can use the plastic soil protection mats to build safe paths for transporting materials in wheelbarrows.
The plastic road plates, and plastic soil protection mats can be quickly and easily stowed for transport in a very durable road plate box with full galvanisation. This also reduces the time required for securing the load. The road plate boxes are large enough to store the plastic soil protection mats comfortably and can also be stacked. This means that the boxes are designed from the outset in such a way that they can be practically inserted into each other and thus transported in a space-saving manner. For this reason, it is best to order the stackable metal boxes at the same time. The road plate boxes for the plastic plates are suitable for stacking and loading onto a truck or into a transporter with a forklift truck.
The advantages in care and maintenance are also important arguments in favour of the plastic plates as floor protection. You can spray the plates with a hose if they are contaminated with soil or other dirt. Dry dirt can be removed with a brush or broom. You can also clean the plastic soil protection mats on the event grounds or as paths with a ride-on sweeper.
You would like to use all possibilities to advertise your company or your activity at a reasonable price? – With LuxTek’s area protection this is easier than you think. With many types, for example, we can mill your company name into the surfaces. This also has a very practical advantage. If you work together with many other companies on a large construction site, you can recognise your own plastic soil protection mats anytime. This prevents losses due to a lack of recognisability of the owner.
Our plastic plates are available in dimensions between 2,000 x 500 millimetres and 3,000 x 1,100 millimetres. This means that even large areas can easily be fitted with a series of such plastic soil protection mats. Installation is quick and easy. Nevertheless, construction roads and event floors are still safe. This is ensured by locking devices that can be fastened in a flash. They can choose between different variants of so-called connectors: the pallet reaches from brackets from galvanized steel over ground hooks up to fourfold connectors from plastic. You can even securely screw the plastic soil protection mats together.
Plastic plates are an almost ideal solution as protection for the underground, because they combine a long service life with a favourable price. This soil protection cannot weather so fast in contrast to road plates and support plates from wood. The fact that water cannot penetrate the plastic contributes to this. This means that they can be used in suitable ground conditions, even at low temperatures.
