  • Very efficient solution for stormwater drain to enable safe access and maintenance.
  • Easy installation and project times and minimal resources.
  • Once laid the mats were able to start working straight away with the regional storms.

TOOLS & EQUIPMENT

  • One excavator to offload the delivery truck and place mats onto site.
  • Fast and efficient installation. Two labourers on the ground to assist positioning, and preparation of the site for public access use after mat was laid into place.

TIME
