A recycling environmental concept that builds soil stability for Swedish business.
This is who we are
Let us take it from the beginning: in sensitive areas where earthworks are carried out, such as construction sites, road works and the like, a basic reinforcement of the area and temporary access roads are often required to ensure stable and safe earthworks. This applies not least to heavy vehicle transports on the sensitive ground where even weight distribution is a and o.
In addition, ground protection can prevent damage to machinery and other equipment. And not least: sensitive ground such as grass surfaces can be protected from unnecessary damage. Other examples are large, public outdoor events, events and music festivals – the worst mud gruel is more the rule than the exception after heavy rain.
Flexible and effective protection is easy-to-handle carpets made of recycled plastic. And the list of uses of these mobile sheets is largely unlimited.
The ground protection mats are environmentally friendly and made only from recycled plastic, which means that the products reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The product series TempoTrax© and ArmorTrax© are dimensioned for everything from small construction work to large construction sites with extreme and challenging ground surfaces and conditions. Our focus is to manufacture products from plastic that would otherwise be incinerated. Instead, we use the material to make soil protection products, and they can be reused time after time, year after year. The climate footprint is a reduced environmental impact both in relation to alternative soil protection solutions and in relation to energy recovery/incineration of the plastic, a strong argument for using these tiles and products (reference: RISE Research Institute of Sweden AB)
We work with a large number of recycling companies for plastics around Europe. And we place high demands on our partners. Our requirement is that the products are of high quality and that they are 100% recycled plastic that can also be recycled.
We align ourselves and our business partners to work with the UN’s sustainability goals.
* Goal 9: sustainable industry, innovations and infrastructure
* Goal 12: sustainable consumption and production
* Goal 17: implementation and global partnership
The plastic raw material is of a kind that many plastic-producing companies see as unusable and count them out. Among other things, it contains impurities in the paint and it consists of mixed types of plastic that many manufacturers can not handle (we call it “dirty plastic).
We do just the opposite. And we do this to make our contribution to reducing climate impact. In addition, we have succeeded in producing a product that is economically advantageous for our customers, which means that sales and product range increase year by year.
What we offer
Ground protection mats are not the only recycled plastic products that we offer. We are expanding our cooperation with innovative producers throughout Europe and are able to bring forth great products from Eco Terrace for the house owners wanting to upgrade themselves with materials that are superior to normal wood.
WPC terrace boards, fence boards are made of WPC (wood and plastic composite). All products are made of homogeneous natural materials – wood and 100% recycled plastic – combination. This unique combination of nature and technology ensures beauty, durability, natural wood diversity and durability of the plastic, making the WPC products more natural, high quality, more resistant to UV rays, moisture and stains.

The plastic mats are installed and moved manually. They have a stable bearing capacity of up to 80 tonnes and a protective, durable surface that can withstand heavy loads and industrial influences. Our production is made of 100% recyclable material which is also recommended by the Building Products Assessment (reference BVB and RISE). Restoration work, machine damage and work delays are minimized, thanks to the easy handling of these plastic mats. They protect earthy soil, lawns, asphalt, concrete and all other ground-based surfaces. With our own product development of 100% recycled and recyclable plastic waste, we are today the EU’s most cost-effective alternative.
