About Our 23mm Rubber Mats
The 23mm rubber grass mat is our thicker variant of mat and is commonly used in gardens, landscaping projects, equestrian areas and under any childrens play area. They are a popular grass protection option for their durability, fantastic 3.3 metre critical fall height and wheelchair friendliness. The main purpose of this product is to protect the root of grass and help revive damaged areas of turf thrive as normal. In very muddy areas, rubber matting is installed (sometimes with the aid of GrassMesh underneath) to keep you and others above the mud with a supportive and cleaner path whilst also giving the grass below the protection needed to grow back and restore the areas natural appearance.
Whilst being effective, rubber mats are also quick and easy to install on both level and uneven ground by using just cable ties and plastic fixing pegs. Not only is our range of rubber mats an efficient solution for so many situations but they are also considered one of the most affordable and economical grass protection mats on the market today.

What Can A Rubber Mat Be Used For?
The 23mm rubber mat is incredibly versatile and can be used for a number of applications thanks to its grass protection, non-slip, soft flooring and safety benefits. Here are some examples of how our mats have been and continue to be used:
Home, Garden & Landscaping
The primary function of these mats is to protect the root of grass, it prevents your turf from being killed and the ground below from becoming a churned up muddy mess. Thanks to the structure of our outdoor rubber mats, the grass below is able to grow through the mat and help preserve the natural green appearance of your area. Once your turf has grown again, it can be cut and cared for as you normally would, simply adjust your lawnmowers blades to a higher setting to ensure you do not damage your outdoor rubber matting.
Our mats are regularly used under play areas in gardens and commercial area. Thanks to the 23mm mats fantastic critical fall height of 3.3 metres, they can be used for almost any play area as long as its size comes within the critical fall height. The durability and soft nature of the mats give you an efficient safety flooring where should any trips or falls occur, the chances of serious injury are vastly reduced.
Our rubber field mats are also used regularly as rubber matting for stables as well as in and around grazing areas and paddocks to create non-slip and grass protection flooring. Under the weight of horses in wetter weather, turfed areas can be heavily damaged and can lead to a heavy, muddy area that can’t be used safely. Our rubber stable mats can help to prevent this and ensure that equestrian areas can be used almost all year round if installed correctly, in prior time and used correctly.
Rubber floor mats are also a common choice for event organisers who need a flooring solution over grass or potentially slippery surfaces. The mats are simple to install and can be removed then relocated which makes them so popular with events that are both touring or in a permanent location. The outdoor mat is able to protect the existing ground from heavy foot traffic whilst keeping the visitors of an event on a mud-free and non-slip surface that they may not have even realised is there.
Anti mud mats are used by golf clubs all year round, they use rubber matting to create paths and walkways around their courses so that the heavy foot and golf buggy traffic does not damage the grass they work so hard on maintaining. In winter, mud control mats become almost a necessity for courses as the ground becomes softer and when walked or driven on can lead to a muddy mess which is harder to repair. The muddy areas can then ruin the course, golfers shoes and clothes and even lead to mud being brought into the clubhouse.
Leisure Centres & Swimming Pools
Thanks to their open structure and non-slip surface, mats are sometimes used as a safety precaution in and around leisure centres and pools to ensure that usually wet and potentially dangerous surfaces cannot cause slips and injuries to visitors. Non-slip mats can be installed in changing rooms, as walkways around the centre and even next to pools to create a safe flooring solution for everyone.
It must be noted that rubber grass mats are a functional product which is designed to provide a solution which allows grass to be fortified. Holes in the mats are sometimes imperfect in their shape and may not be wholly central to the cell in which they sit, however this does not undermine the structural or functional integrity of the mat, nor does it impede the grass from growing through and therefore any mat with imperfect perforations will not be deemed as faulty or unfit for purpose.
