About Our 23mm Rubber Mats

The 23mm rubber 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. To see how we recommend installing the mats, read our Installation Guide or click on the ‘Installation’ tab above which will guide you through the process of installing your own mats.

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 sturdy, non-slip and soft flooring under the hooves of horses. Under the weight of horses in wetter weather, the turf can be heavily damaged and can lead to a heavy, muddy area that can’t be used safely. Our rubber stable mats have proved time and again that they can prevent this and ensure that equestrian areas can be used all year round regardless of the weather or amount of foot/hoof traffic it experiences.


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.

Golf Courses

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.

How To Install Rubber Mats

  1. To begin, measure and mark out the site where your mats are going to be installed. Cut short the grass and be sure to remove all clippings and debris that could get stuck under the mats.
  2. Level out an uneven areas using a good quality sandy topsoil if you are wanting a flat surface. Then firm up the surface and either seed or turf the designated area.
  3. OPTIONAL STEP: Install A Structural Grass Mesh Layer. On sites where the grass surface is prone to becoming very wet and soft, the installation of an additional layer of lightweight plastic grass mesh under your mat can be used to provide additional structural support. The grass mesh is secured with U-Pins around the perimeter at around 50cm intervals.
  4. Begin laying out the mats in the proposed area and if required, cut the mats to fit around any play equipment or obstacles that may be within the installation area.
  5. Proceed around the area from one side butting the mats firmly against each other. Then using cable ties, fasten all of the touching edges tightly together with 3 on the long side of the mats and 2 on the short sides of the mats. Trim the ends of the fixed cable ties off and ensure that the cut end of the ties are not creating a hazard by being sticking up and being exposed above the surface of the mats.
  6. After fixing the cable ties to the edges of the mats, secure the mats into the ground by using plastic fixing pegs – use one peg in each corner and one in the middle (5 in total).
  7. OPTIONAL STEP: Edge blending where a discreet grass to rubber interface is required.
    • Using a spade or half-moon edging tool, cut a slit into the ground along the perimeter edge of every mat and to a depth of approximately 75mm.
    • Roll back the edge of the rubber mats. Using a spade, starting approximately 150mm from the slit and working away from the rolled back mat, cut a wedged shaped slice of turf leaving a wedge shaped exposed soil channel. Continue this operation around the perimeter of the mats where edge blending is required.
    • Roll the edge of the mats back down into the exposed wedge shaped channel just created. Pin the edge of each mat into to the ground through the small holes in the mat with more plastic fixing pegs at intervals of 500mm.
    • Refill the exposed ramped edge to its original ground level with topsoil, then trim a layer of soil from the retained turf to give it an appropriate thickness (approx 50mm). Then you can re-bed the turf over the filled mats and compact it down into place to provide a discreet edge.
  8. Finally, the grass will grow through the mats and cover the apertures of the mats within around 4-6 weeks. Once grown, the grass can be mowed as normal by simply increasing the height of your lawnmower blade.
