Utility supplies: AlturnaMATS ground protection mats now offers the clear mat. The key benefit of the clear mat over the other mats we offer is that the sunlight can easily pass through the clear mats and nourish the grass, causing less burn. These mats will be especially useful in areas where it is important to keep the grass as pristine as possible. The clear mats feature the same 120-ton load rating and limited lifetime warranty as the other mats in our ground protection line.
Unlike clear plastic, black plastic blocks out light, smothering grass roots and preventing new growth.
Shown are the effects after five days: (left to right: clear mat, white mat, black mat). Black mats show heavy browning of grass and burnt leaves. White mats show moderate browning and slightly burnt leaves. Clear mats show no damage.
