Why use an environmental mat ?

It is now mandatory, in all motorsports, to use an environmental mat in order to preserve natural ecosystems from chemical contamination, but not only.

The absorbent karting mat to limit accidents on the track

Accidents caused during car races are not only due to technical faults or driver errors but also due to liquid leaks on the track. The absorbent floor mats are then used to collect and stop the spread of oil, gasoline or water spillage, which could leak from the machine and make the track slippery. Not only does this make cleaning easier, but it also helps to improve the safety of the pilots, as well as the pit staff, by preventing them from slipping on a dirty or oily paddock.

The absorbent karting mat to limit damage to the tracks

An environmental mat is also used in motorsports to protect the environment against leaks of potentially dangerous liquids (oil, fuel, brake fluid, etc.) which can damage soils and groundwater. The mat, placed under the vehicle, acts as a shield by preventing liquids from penetrating directly into the floor. He then comes to store and dispose of the chemical substances in a safe and ecological way.

Karting carpet: A F.F.S.A. standardized product

All our models have a minimum retention capacity of 1.5 L of liquid per square meter, thus drastically limiting the risk of contamination or spread.

Our carpets are designed to be very resistant to time and wear. They are also composed of two different parts:

The first is the one that is in direct contact with the ground, it is a PVC sole, it serves as a retention barrier and prevents substances from spilling onto the track.

The second is made of polyamide fibers, a very high-quality material capable of receiving high-definition printing and carrying out your personalization.
