TAMES™: ground improvement mat and roadways

Mobi-mat® TAMES™ solutions (previously known as GRIMAT™ solutions) are dedicated to ground reinforcement and temporary roadways. TAMES™ mats are in operation in all continents for ground mobility. They offer fast deployment ground reinforcement for temporary needs like stabilized platforms or vehicle quick access. They also allow long term use for convoy roadway or disaster response units. The TAMES™ solutions can be deployed manually thanks to their lighweight features and also with mechanical equipment like front-loader dispenser, trailer-mounted dispenser or truck mounted dispenser. They perform in all grounds like sand, snow, mud, gravel. Their innovative material allows all type of vehicle traffic, from small civilian vehicles to tracked heavy tanks.

Fast deployment temporary roadways
Thanks to the Mobi-mat® expertise, the TAMES™ ground reinforcement mats offer a very high level of readiness. Their new generation material gives them the capability to be deployed very quickly and to allow very demanding use.

TAMES™ A2X – Ligthweight expeditionnary ground reinforcement mat

The TAMES™ A2X is the original ground reinforcement mat developed by Mobi-mat®. It has been in use in many military forces and expeditionnary corps. Made from Mobi-mat® 3D technical fabric, the TAMES™ A2X gathers all advantages of a ligtweight expeditionnary mat. It can be deployed manually in a moment by a few people. It can face the worst operational conditions, like extreme temperatures or intense traffic. The TAMES™ A2X is very versatile and is useful for every type of operation where the ground needs enhancement. Its structure gives the best ratio between the weight, the load bearing capability and the anti-skid property.

TAMES™ XE – Composite reinforced multipurpose mat

The TAMES™ XE is the latest evolution of heavy duty ground reinforcement matting. Mobi-mat® developed it in order to enhance the stability on soft soils. Its structure made from Mobi-mat® 3D technical fabric includes composite rods. This specific feature offers in the same time high ground stability and lightweight material. The TAMES™ XE is still deployable manually and allows modular configuration. These composite reinforced fabric mats can participate to heavy logistic operation facilities such as forward logistic base. They can also help small squads for tactical positionning in unreachable places.

  • weight: 6,5 kg/m² (1,33 lb/sqft)
  • standard dimensions and weight: 3,4m x 10m (11,2′ x 33′) – 58 kg (128 lb) or 4,2m x 10m (13,8′ x 33′) – 72 kg (159 lb)
  • custom dimensions: on demand
  • mats connection: yes
  • material: Mobi-mat® XE – composite reinforced 3D technical fabric
  • mud, dust, sand, snow retainer: yes
  • liquid permeability: yes
  • anti-skid surface: yes
  • load bearing capability: yes
  • deployment : manual ; front-loader dispenser ; trailer-mounted dispenser ; truck-mounted dispenser

TAMES™ FCR – Aluminium heavy duty roadway

The TAMES™ FCR is the latest generation of ground reinforcement mats. Mobi-mat® designed it from high resistance aluminium alloy in order to be undestructable. The TAMES™ FCR is the ultimate roadway. It is used for the lowest CBR (Californian Bearing Ratio) and the heaviest armored vehicles. Thanks to its high technology material, the TAMES™ FCR allows wheeled or tracked mounted vehicles traffic.

The TAMES™ FCR can easily be used for temporary aircraft parking or taxiway. It also meets the drones (UAV) requirement in terms of parking area, in soft or dusty soils.

  • weight: 31 kg/m² (6,35 lb/sqft)
  • standard dimensions and weight: 4,2m x 25m (13,8′ x 82′) – 3 255 kg (7176 lb) or 4,6m x 50m (15,1′ x 164′) – 7820 kg (17 240 lb)
  • custom dimensions: on demand
  • mats connection: yes
  • material: Mobi-mat® FCR3 – high resistance aluminium alloy
  • mud, dust, sand, snow retainer: yes
  • anti-skid surface: yes
  • load bearing capability: yes
