Big R Guards, by Contech, offers the innovative Steel Tracking Pad system that will save you time, money and headaches. Our easy to install system can be used for temporary or permanent Vehicle Tracking Control.
For temporary use it can be placed directly on the ground and moved from site to site. Permanent installations require our precast bases or a cast-in-place system.
Permanent Mud Guards
Permanent Mud Guards are set on concrete base supports, creating a pit beneath the grid allowing for collection or flow-through of debris. Some applications require containment directly under the grid, while others will direct the drainage to a settling location.
With spans up to 20’ in the driving distance, our Mud Guards accommodate a complete tire rotation of most equipment with only one set of bases for end support. One application is parking on grids, dumping contents into the grid to remove large debris, then washing the vehicle while parked on grid.
Temporary Mud Guards
Vehicle Tracking Pads, as part of a Controlled Construction Entrances, are now standard as part of Sediment Control and Silt Management Planning on construction sites throughout the country.
While each agency may have slight variation, most require 4” - 6” rocks at the entrance to knock off the large chunks of mud from the tires of exiting vehicles.
Our temporary Mud Guards are 8’ in the driving distance and two or three panels are placed end to end. By incorporating our Mud Guards in the tracking pad, the bulk of the mud can be removed before traveling on the rock, avoiding the cost of replacing the rock due to mud filling the voids and making the rock ineffective and out of spec. Contractors deploy them, year after year, as a standard piece of equipment in their fleet.
