The flagship product from Nu-Roads Environmental Inc. is this top quality blasting mat. Called the Ultra Blastmat, this product has virtually no break-up problems commonly associated with traditional blasting mats. The benefits are easy, less costly job site cleanup and lower cost per blast due to the extended service life of the Ultra Blastmat versus other blasting mats.

The Ultra Blastmat features

  • Large 12 inch O.D. lifting/grab ring made of 1¼ inch diameter forged steel bar providing a highly visible operator target and ease of handling during use
  • Composition of heavy truck tire tread throughout
  • We use only new ¾ inch diameter galvanized steel cable to assure rust-free flexibility during use
  • End plate design maintains mat shape during placement on blast site
  • New forged steel clamps are torqued to specification to insure long mat life
  • Unique hole design facilitates high mat flexibility while protecting cables and treads
  • Overlapping tread design ensures a tight seal on rough terrain

Ultra Blastmat standard size is

  • 10 inches (25cm) thick
  • 10 feet (3.3m) wide by 15 feet (4.5m) long
  • Approximately 50 pounds per square foot (250kg per square metre)

Mats can be custom-built to suit your application.

Stop watching your mat investment self-destruct before your eyes! The Ultra Blastmat will outlast and outperform traditional blasting mats many times over.

The LT Blastmat is a new, lighter addition to the Nu-Roads line-up. LT Blastmats are made using light truck tires and the same high quality construction methods as the Ultra Blastmat.

LT Blastmat features are:

  • Large 10 inch diameter by 1¼ inch thick forged steel operator target ring
  • Light truck tires used throughout the construction
  • We use new five-eighths inch diameter galvanized steel cable
  • New forged steel clamps are torqued to specification to insure long mat life
  • Specialized assembly process protects the cable and improves the mat’s flexibility
  • Overlapping tread design ensures a tight seal on rough terrain

LT Blastmat standard size is

  • 8½ inches (21cm) thick
  • 7 feet (2.1m) wide by 15 feet (4.5m) long
  • Approximately 38 pounds per square foot (186kg per square metre)

Used in a wide variety of applications the Ultra Road Mat acts as a heavy-duty carpet for heavy equipment, vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

Applications for the Ultra Road Mat include:

  • Landscaping
  • Farming
  • Home Improvements: pool installations, concrete deck or foundations, etc
  • Construction Work Areas
  • Logging and Forestry
  • Off-road Trails
  • Parks
  • Military Crossings
  • Ultra Road Mat standard size is 10 feet (3.3m) square
  • Each Ultra Road Mat can be joined others to create larger work areas (in 100 square-foot increments)
  • Weighs approximately 15 pounds per square foot (or 73kg per square metre)
  • Can be folded for easy storage and transport
  • Comprised of commercial truck tires for excellent durability — will not rot in wet conditions
  • Special sizes and configurations are available upon request

Sidewalls from truck tires may be used as ballast for road cones or weights for holding down large tarps, etc. Each weighs approximately 25 pounds.

Sidewalls can be tied together using ropes to form large tarp hold-downs for piles of feed or hay. In this application the sidewalls are superior to car tires, requiring far less storage space in the off-season. Approximately 35 sidewalls will stack in a pile only five feet high. And sidewalls will not collect rain which eliminates possible mosquito breeding areas and further propagation of the West Nile virus.

Sidewalls will last a lifetime and are an affordable way to keep outdoor covers in place. Call us with your requirements for a free quote.
