Standard 2/4-Way Connectors:
Standard 2-Way and 4-way Connectors are a great way to connect mats effectively and securely. They can be used to connect the mats together simply and effectively by placing the connector under the corner of each mat, and then connecting via a bolt and washer from the top. All bolts and washers are standard size the therefore you don’t need any specialist equipment to use them. When using mats on a medium to long term basis and when using heavy duty plant and machinery, they also allow a small amount of flex which helps to prevent damage to the mats. Advise connection of the LIGHT, MEDIUM and HEAVY DUTY mats.
Simple 2 way connector/ Steel U-pin
Steel U-Pin Connectors are a great way to connect LIGHT MEDIUM mats fast and effectively without the need of bolts or washers. They can be used either to connect the mats together in each corner via the unique S-Shape design, or they can also be driven into the ground helping to secure them, especially when working on very soft ground or on inclines. Steel U-Pin Fast-Fit Connectors provide good connection when using mats on a short term basis and when using light/medium duty weight vehicles and machinery. They’re made from regular steel ensuring a good lifespan but may rust when used and stored in wet areas.
Draghook ( Mat drag hooks)
Our mats are supplied with pre-drilled holes in each corner to allow for easy connection and fixing. The mats can be easily lifted or dragged into position by using the pre-formed connector holes and specially constructed ‘drag hooks’. Based on a simple J-hook design, drag hooks enable the efficient movement of mats over a distance which can then be placed into the correct spot for a quick and trouble-free installation.
