Track Protection Specialty Mats for Schools - Mats and matting to help protect tracks from damage caused by cleats and turf equipment. Schools invest tens of thousands of dollars in their tracks - it is unwise to use carpet remnants or plywood to protect such a valuable item. A few ssues that should be considered when evaluating track protection are ease of deployment, trip hazards, ability to protect substrate track, weight of the product, wind, ability to provide nonslip surface in all weather and size. Turf equipment, cleats and wheeled equipment can all damage a track surface. If you need help finding a floor mat that will protect your track, please give us a call.
