At Trackout Control Mats, every part of our operation from start to finish has sustainability in mind. One of our biggest values as a company is reducing our overall impact on the environment. There are a few different methods we employ to make sure we are operating as sustainably and conscientiously as possible. In today’s blog, we discuss a few of the ways that our team at Trackout Control Mats is helping the environment.

LEED Certification

One of the ways our company has a positive impact on the environment is by helping businesses become LEED certified. For those who don’t know, LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Obtaining your LEED Certification as a business means that you are committed to being a green, eco-friendly business. Because our trackout control products are all made from 100% recycled composite materials, we help businesses operate more sustainably. Helping businesses practice sustainable operations and construction is a big part of becoming LEED Certified and reducing your business’s overall impact on the environment.

Recycled Materials

Perhaps the biggest way that our trackout control mats help the environment is in the materials that we use for all of our products. Every product at Trackout Control Mats is created using ultra-durable, 100% recycled composite materials. Other manufactures may claim to use recycled rubber in their products, but much of the time, those claims wind up being false. Trackout Control Mats is proud to use 100% recycled material in our mats because we know that we are helping to keep countless amounts of rubber and other materials from sitting in a landfill for centuries to come. We are doing our part to repurpose unwanted rubber materials that still have a lot of life left.

Reduced Trackout

In short, trackout is composed of dirt, gravel, and other construction-site debris. Trackout gets lodged in and on construction vehicles while they are working on-site and can wind up being deposited onto public roadways once they leave. Trackout is not only inconvenient for drivers on public roadways but it also harmful to the environment. When cars drive over trackout, they are introducing the dirt and debris into the air, creating particulate matter — a form of air pollution caused by trackout. Also, hazardous chemicals and other construction-site materials can be washed off of the road into rivers and public drainage systems creating water pollution.

The purpose of trackout control mats is as the name suggests — control the amount of trackout that leaves the worksite. The way it does this is simple yet incredibly effective. As the construction vehicle drives over the stabilized construction entrance and exit, it is rocked side to side and vibrated to break free any trackout that is stuck in the tires or on the body of the vehicle. The trackout removed from the vehicle before it leaves the construction site, therefore severely reducing the amount of trackout that makes its way onto public roadways — greatly benefiting the environment.

Durability

Another way that our team at Trackout Control Mats is helping the environment is by not only making our products out of recycled rubber but making them incredibly durable as well. Making trackout control products out of recycled rubber is a great start, but our team took it a step further. By making our trackout control mats durable, we are essentially reducing the amount of material and resources you would otherwise have to spend constantly repairing your trackout solution. Other products have similar designs and functions similarly to our trackout control mats, but they are made cheaper and less durable in an effort to cut costs. Much of the time if your mat from our competitor breaks, you will have to invest in an entirely new product since they can not be repaired. We are confident that our stabilized construction entrance solutions are so unbreakable that if one does somehow manage to get damaged, we will send you a replacement block right away on us.

Made in the U.S.A.

The last way that Trackout Control Mats helps the environment is by having our manufacturing done right here in the United States. Because our products are manufactured in the U.S., we are spending substantially less fuel shipping and transporting our products. In fact, we have strategically placed distribution centers across the country. We use the facilities tactically to use less energy, less fuel, and fewer funds to deliver your product. Many other trackout control solutions on the market manufacture their products in China or another country and use significant fuel and environmental resources to deliver you a lesser product that they claim is just as sustainable and functional.
