Why Use A Mat With One Smooth Side and One Treaded Side?

Mats with one smooth side are desirable when it’s necessary to cover hard non-forgiving surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, and pavers. Using treaded mats on warm or hot asphalt will leave tread imprints in the asphalt hence using smooth-sided mats on asphalt. When making turns with wheeled or track equipment it is more desirable to use a mat with one smooth side facing up. When piling soils or aggregate on top of mats it is very advantageous to use smooth-sided mats which make removal much easier.

Black, White or Translucent?

Black - Most affordable / cost effective.

White - More costly than black but safer to use on grass over extended use.

Translucent - They are the best and most advanced mat.

The black AlturnaMATS are the original and first color produced by AlturnaMATS. Black is the most cost-effective mat as they are made from recycled HDPE. White was later introduced to prevent grass from potentially "browning" over extended periods of usage with the mats. A semi-translucent mat now supersedes white as this further reduces heat damage to the ground below. White mats are still available for customers who still prefer to support their existing white inventory. White and Translucent mats are offered at the same price points and are both made using UV stabilized virgin HDPE. Below are manufacturer test results comparing heat performance between black and white AlturnaMATS. (Translucent mats would have similar or improved characteristics to white mats.)
