Ground protection investment by Hewden

By Helen Wright08 August 2016

UK rental company Hewden has invested in £500000 (€590000) worth of MultiTrack ground protection mats from Ground-Guards.

The MultiTrack system is the latest in a series of investments by Hewden to provide a new Non-Mechanical Plant proposition.

Ground-Guards, which is a division of the GreenTek Group, is a supplier of ground protection equipment for a range of industries, including construction, civil engineering, mining, drilling, landscaping, and heritage sites.

The MultiTrack mats are made from a tough, lightweight, HDPE polymer plastic, and are said to provide a cost-effective alternative to the traditional aluminium panels. Designed for laying down portable access roads or providing ground protection, the 100% recycled plastic mats are said to be guaranteed unbreakable by vehicles up to 120 tonnes.

Danny Williams, product manager at Hewden said, “This is a significant investment from Hewden and is a great example of how we are supporting our customers across the events, construction, industrial and infrastructure sectors with a non-mechanical plant product range that complements our larger core equipment.

“They will be available from most depots across the UK on a short or long term hire basis and provide the best example of lightweight, durable and easy to handle ground protection mats on the market. We’re delighted to be working with Ground-Guard on this latest investment as we develop our partnership further.”
