TuffTrak Lite - Making light weight of heavy duty
Checkers Safety Group is again pushing the boundaries of product innovation with their lightest addition to the TuffTrak family of heavy duty temporary road mats. Following extensive international testing, TuffTrak Lite is now available from stock adding the first of a new, and innovative, generation of lighter weight heavy duty temporary road mats to the TuffTrak range, combining the latest design and materials.
TuffTrak Lite incorporates a unique and innovative fabrication design to substantially reduce the weight of each mat but at the same time maintaining excellent performance as a robust, rugged and heavy duty road mat associated with theTuffTrak® brand.
TuffTrak is recognised globally as a leading range of temporary access and ground protection products delivering ‘Best in Class’ solutions that offer optimum safety, performance and value, coupled with a fundamental commitment to sustainability and the environment.
‘We continually look to product innovation and to continually question the status quo,’ remarked Executive VP and Managing Director, Iain Brown. ‘Our philosophy is to listen carefully to the needs of our customers and their changing requirements and monitor the demands of the market. In delivering the necessary solutions, we look to develop products that feature creative designs, new materials and fabrication methods. Put simply, where TuffTrak leads others try to follow’
TuffTrak Lite is the latest product development that adds to the existing TuffTrak family. Measuring 3 metres by 2.5 metres and a weight of 180kg* TuffTrak Lite delivers the ideal solution between TuffTrak’s lighter man-handleable medium duty matting and the large format heavy duty TuffTrak range, creating further opportunities for customers to apply the right matting solution to specific project requirements.
Benefits of TuffTrak Lite
- Reduces cost with more mats, more temporary roadway per lorry, reduced costs
- Reduces costs where a traditional heavy-weight road mat is an over-engineered solution
- Helps achieve lower carbon footprint and therefore achieves sustainability objectives
TuffTrak Lite incorporates many of the same key features as the current TuffTrak, making the TuffTrak range the product of choice for many global market sectors including transmission, construction and oil and gas. TuffTrak Lite also benefits from the same solid one piece construction design and, with a low profile traction surface and our standard ‘micro traction’™, TuffTrak Lite delivers efficient grip and safety from a mat weighing 40% less.
Iain Brown went on to say, ‘At Checkers our mission is to continually introduce innovative and unique products that mirror our core values and the changing requirements of our customers, to ensure that TuffTrak continues to be the product of choice across the key sectors we serve globally, and that we continually deliver maximum safety, performance and value.’
