Discover more about how we are working together
with our global partners in the following key sectors:


 

Transmission

The transmission sector demands specific requirements in the deployment of temporary access roadways (or trakway) and ground protection that are unique to the industry. Checkers Safety Group has worked extensively with key partners on many projects across the world and understands these specific requirements which are reflected in the design and performance of the TuffTrak heavy duty and medium duty trackway solutions. Key challenges with transmission projects include the high risk of theft and avoiding security costs due to length and remoteness of projects, the requirement for non-conductive (EPZ) work areas and the avoidance of environmental damage to sensitive eco systems and cross contamination between sites. Find out how TuffTrak matting solutions have helped our partners in the transmission sector.

Oil & Gas

Land based Oil & Gas exploration, extraction and delivery (pipeline) projects are often located in very difficult and environmentally sensitive terrain which also experience severe weather and temperature conditions. The key challenges in deploying temporary access roadways or working pads within Oil & Gas are similar to those in the transmission sector, including the high risk of theft associated with aluminium mats (requiring high security costs), duration and remoteness of projects and minimising environmental damage to agricultural land, heritage sites or sensitive eco systems. See how TuffTrak heavy duty and medium duty matting solutions  can help deliver superior performance in ground protection and temporary access roadways or 'trakways'.

Renewable Energy

The renewable energy sector, including wind farms and solar farms, has seen considerable growth over the past few years. Similar to the transmission and Oil & Gas sectors, land based renewable energy projects are often in remotely located sites, crossing very difficult terrain. Working alongside partners in this sector, Chekers has successfully provided many temporary access roadways and ground protection solutions around the world, experiencing the severe weather and temperature conditions associated with this sector. Find out how TuffTrak heavy duty and medium duty temporary access matting solutions have helped this growing sector.

Civil Engineering, Construction and Infrastructure

The civil engineering, construction and infrastructure sectors globally have seen an increasing emphasis on delivering temporary access roadway solutions that are highly effective yet adhere to stringent workplace health & safety requirements, particularly where there is the constant movement of heavy plant working alongside site personnel. TuffTrak temporary access roadway matting solutions have proven experience in delivering optimal grip for both heavy plant and site staff, reducing potential risk to personnel including ‘slips, trips and falls’. Understand how TuffTrak's heavy duty and lighter weight, medium duty matting have become industry leading temporary access roadway solutions.

Events

Providing safe temporary access 'trakways' and ground protection for festivals and shows (including event build) and providing safe pedestrian and access routes for the duration of an event is a unique and continual challenge. These challenges have worsened as weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable and insurance companies become more stringent on the required cover. Checkers has been working alongside event and festival organisers for many years helping to deliver safe and successful events, whether at the London 2012 Olympics, Glastonbury, the Edinburgh Marathon or Formula 1. See how TuffTrak's range of heavy duty or medium duty matting have provided safe temporary access roadways and ground protection solutions to the events industry.
