Operation

AlturnaMATS and ZigmaMATS is a preventive measure to prevent machinery from getting stuck in unstable ground conditions, however it is not recommended to use these mats in order to pull out machinery that is already stuck.

The mats are placed on even ground. If it is necessary to place them on uneven or very unstable ground, hillsides, etc., then the mats must be connected, and the ends of the roadway must be fastened with locks. This way the mats will not be pushed out under the wheels or mechanically damaged. In this case, single locks are used. Openings for links in the perimeter of the mats enable to form a surface of desired shape, by connecting mats as road tracks or as a solid roadway.

When it is necessary to create a larger operating width or distribute greater pressure on unstable ground, the mats are connected with double links, i.e. the corners of 4 mats are connected with one link.

The mats cannot be placed on sharp surfaces or ruts, or used instead of bridges. This can cause mechanical damage to the mats.

When placing the mats on clayey wet ground, it is recommended to first place film on the ground, and then lay down the mats on top. This will make the collection of mats significantly easier after use, as they will not be heavily stuck to the ground.

After use, the mats are lifted from the ground using handheld hooks. They cannot be lifted using chains or cables, as this may damage the mats.

The mats must be clean and placed in a horizontal position during storage. Mats that are used properly will serve for a long time.
