ADB= Airfield Solutions INSTALLATION & MOUNTING Airfield Mat Uses • Controls vegetation around airport post lighting, directional signs, wind socks, fences and buildings • Reduces damage caused by mowing equipment to airfield lighting signs and other objects Features • The 6-mm (0.24”) thick mat is made from a dense compound of recycled rubbers with polyurethane binders and is anchored to the ground with a proprietary anchoring system • Patented product designed to protect airfield lighting signs and other objects from impact damage caused by large, imprecise mowing equipment • Lawn mower equipment can pass over the mat, cutting all the grass without the use of line trimmers while still staying a safe distance from lights or posts • The airfield mat provides a wider contingency space for mowers to cruise past each light or post • Cost-effective solution that controls vegetation in hard to reach areas without requiring extra labor to trim it or the use of environmentally damaging chemicals or poisons, protecting ground water, wildlife, and airfield crew from exposure • Prevents erosion around the base of light or sign fixtures, which can cause water to pool under the fixture • Eliminates extra labor and maintenance • The Airfield Mat System qualifies for Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding when bid as part of lighting, sign and fencing projects • The mat is available in two styles: round and “football”. The football mat is 4 feet wide by 7 feet long and uses 8 anchors to secure it in place. • Patented anchoring system and “football” shape are designed to allow maintenance crews with larger mowers to mow in a line, from light to light, making only one pass on each side of the light. Mowers can move in a more natural mowing arc around airfield lights, expediting the mowing process even further. • The airfield mats are large enough to prevent lights from disappearing in tall grass, which enables the mowing crew to see the lights better, preventing accidental breakage. Other smaller mats do not accomplish this same efficiency and often still require line-trimming to complete the job.
