Track Matting (Spill Protection) is Australian made and designed to provide sorbency and spill protection in rail-specific applications. This three level matting is made up of sorbent needle-punched material which is top layered with a UV mesh for added strength and then poly-backed with a chemical resistant material to keep unwanted fluids from getting into the ballast and leaching into our waterways.
Construction of Track Matting:
Top layer – mesh UV protection layer
Second layer – hydrocarbon absorbent layer
Third layer – industrial grade PVC sealant layer
Roll Sizes for Track Matting:
Length - 25 metre lengths to facilitate OH&S friendly handling
Widths – 1.5 metre for between tracks, 0.5 metre for outer track leaks
Installation of Track Matting:
Simply roll out between tracks (and outer edges if required) – secure by nailing to sleepers or weighting with ballast.
Advantages of Track Matting:
Increased service life (typically twice that of single layer matting)
Cost savings through lower replacement intervals
Positive protection of the ballast through PVC sealing layer and rolled edges preventing edge overflow of spills
