tracmatA modern, ultra strong, lighter weight alternative to heavy, corrosion prone metal sand ladders, these glass-reinforced polyester (GRP) TracMats are a must for any serious off-roader. Excellent for recovery when stuck in thick mud or soft sand, or as a bridging ladder over narrow gaps which the vehicle wheel might not otherwise cross unaided.

The Tracmat Bridging Ladders can be placed just under the front of the stationary tyre, and provide a non-slip surface for the vehicle to self-recover under its own power, or in conjunction with another vehicle for assisted recovery.

The vehicle weight on the tyre is distributed throughout the area of the Tracmat, meaning the tyre will not sink or dig in. The Tracmat has been designed to deflect under the vehicle load, however, because they are made of a glass reinforced plastic rather than metal, the inherent elasticity allows them to spring back to their original shape when un-laden.

The excellent grip is achieved through the bi-directional mesh construction. This allows aggressive mud-tyre treads to easily grip and hold onto the surface. A quartz grit surface provides additional adhesion.

This combination creates unrivalled tyre to surface adhesion and grip greatly superior to any traditional metal sand ladder. The inherent strength, durability, reduced weight, and corrosion resistance makes Tracmats the only modern choice for the off-road adventurer.

Tracmat Fibreglass (GRP) Ladders are available in an assortment of panel sizes and thickness to suit a variety of applications;


waffle25mm thick, with a 38 x 38mm square mesh pattern. These are designed for surface traction in muddy or sandy conditions.
These "Sand Ladders" are available in 1000 X 310mm, 1220 x 310mm 0r 1465 x 310mm size boards. Specials sizes available upon request.


38mm thick with a 38 x 38mm square mesh pattern. These are our most popular selling item and will comfortably withstand the weight of your vehicle across moderate ditches and gullies.
Available in either 1000 x 310mm, 1220 x 310mm or 1465 x 310mm board sizes.


50mm thick with a 50 x 50mm square mesh pattern. These are the real heavy weight champions. These big boys are ideal for the roughest terrain, with increased spanning and loading capabilities.
Available in either 1220 x 310mmor 1480 x 310mm board sizes.


Another useful tool for the serious off-roader. There is just no point in trying to lift a vehicle clear of the ground if the base of the jack is resting on a soft surface. All too often, you will simply achieve pumping the rack with its metal base into the ground with the vehicle staying put. A Tracmat Jack Pad is available in 310 x 310mm board sizes to provide a useful base for your Hi Lift Jack.


A question that is always on our mind here at Tracmat UK, so in answer to this question we commissioned MILLBROOKS PROVING GROUND to laboratory test our 50mm thick bridging ladders to measure deflection under-load, and ultimately destruction. Millbrook provides the global automotive industry with virtually every test and validation service necessary for the development of cars, components, commercial and military vehicles. Operating independently, it has established a world-wide reputation for confidentiality, service and competitiveness.

A point load of 100mm x 30mm was applied to a section of the tracmat, with spans including 250mm, 500mm, 1000mm and 1500mm. The load was increased and the load and deflection of the material was recorded. PLEASE Our 38mm & 50mm boards will comfortably with-stand the weight of your Off Road Vehicle. The 38mm boards can withstand up-to 2500 Kg, and the 50mm boards in excess of 3000 Kg.


machine"The ladders were amazing, I used them for everything from building bridges in the Cambodian Jungles to assisting in organised off road events where they helped at least 20 other vehicles around a military proving grounds. Whether it was bridging or traction, the ladders did the job perfectly and were light enough for one person to use easily. Daniel Moylan - 16/1/2008 - Lonewolf Transglobal Expedition
