Ground Protection

Market-Leading UK Manufacturer’s Enduramat and Enduragrid Products Offer a Host of Benefits for the Construction Industry – Whatever the Weather


Award-winning UK manufacturer Oxford Plastics is enjoying continued success with its range of ground protection products, helping the construction and events sector deal with the challenges posed by inclement weather. Oxford Plastic Systems is constantly listening to customer feedback, working closely with its customers and end users to meet their needs and solve key challenges.


The company’s EnduraMat and EnduraGrid solutions provide continued access to building sites for forklifts, diggers, trucks, cranes and other vehicles particularly during adverse weather conditions, while protecting the ground underneath from significant damage – thus keeping projects running and minimising downtime for both the workforce and plant. EnduraMat is a multifunctional and reversible mat which can be used as a temporary roadway or parking area to allow access for vehicles up to 80 tonnes.


Simple and fast to install, EnduraMat features easy-to-use connectors, with vehicle and pedestrian anti-slip surfaces and an inline pattern that makes it easy to clean. The integral hand holes make it easy to manoeuvre into position. Available in Pantone matched colours, EnduraMat can be personalised for individual customers’ corporate identity.


EnduraGrid, meanwhile, is an interlocking porous paving system which can provide access routes and additional parking on construction sites for vehicles up to 44 tonnes. Its innovative grid structure allows grass to grow between cells or can alternatively be filled with gravel, improving water dispersion – which means it can also be used to protect again soil erosion, reinforce embankments and improve storm water management as part of a sustainable drainage scheme (SUDS). The EnduraGrid is also easy to install, with minimal labour and no expensive equipment required. It can be easily cut to size to fit the space required. A heavy duty version of EnduraGrid is also available, suitable for truck parks and motorway verges. With thicker sidewalls, this variant of EnduraGrid can withstand the continuous turning of vehicles.


Peter Creighton, Business Development Director for Oxford Plastics Systems, says: “We are delighted to have launched the EnduraMat and EnduraGrid, which provide some key benefits for the construction sector, solving access and ground protection issues in the most challenging circumstances. We are constantly listening to customer feedback and both these products were developed through working closely with customers and end users to meet their needs, demonstrating our commitment to solving issues for companies through innovation and design.”
