Super Heavy-Duty Grass Protection



Super Heavy-Duty Grass Protection

DuraDeck® is engineered for heavy-duty on-field activity and is designed to take grass protection to the next level. Use DuraDeck panels for portable roadways, accessways, or working platforms for concert move-ins, backstage areas, stadium construction projects, and to protect end zones, tracks, baseball diamonds, golf courses and other sensitive natural and synthetic surfaces.

DuraDeck is engineered to support the rigorous traffic associated with exhibit set up, exhibitor vehicles, and heavy displays.  With fast installation and dismantle times, easy cleanup and reuse for many years, Signature’s stadium flooring provides a significant return on investment.

The Ultimate Turf Protection Systems

DuraDeck ground protection is available with multiple surface patterns, DuraDeck 1 (DD1) and DuraDeck 2 (DD2).


For vehicles
DuraDeck 1 (DD1) panels feature a molded rugged traction pattern on both sides, ideal for concert load-in areas and stadium landscaping and construction projects. DuraDeck mats are designed to support up to 80 tons (72.5 metric tonnes) vehicle weights and will both stay rigid enough for ground protection and flexible enough to prevent breakage or brittleness. From large forklifts and generators to heavy staging and 18-wheel trucks, DuraDeck is designed to handle the heavy weights associated with concerts and large-scale event productions.


For pedestrians/vehicles
DuraDeck 2 (DD2) panels for front-of-house concert applications feature a pedestrian-friendly traction surface. Standard panel size is 4ft x 8ft (2.44 m x 1.22 m) nd both are available in a range of sizes. DuraDeck is an easy to deploy 4ft x 8ft panel (more sizes available) manufactured from solid high density polyethylene. It has an integrated connection system that connects in all directions and can handle the tremendous torque of turning equipment.

Prevents Turf “Brown Out”

DuraDeck panels are available in multiple colors, however, we recommend beige for events on hot or sunny days to help prevent the effects of “brown out.” DuraDeck is available by special order in white.

Innovative Engineering Design for Large Scale Events and Surface Protection

Each 4 ft. x 8 ft DuraDeck matting is manufactured from a specially formulated HDPE blend that is both extraordinarily strong, flexible enough to prevent breakage, and contains UV-protection to prevent fading and degradation. DuraDeck protective panels are molded as a single, solid sheet of plastic, which means DuraDeck has no weak points and will be able to flex without breaking. This solid construction separates DuraDeck from other systems that rely on a honeycomb, ribbed interior or other design for strength.

Available in Multiple Sizes

DuraDeck comes in standard 4ft x 8ft sections, but is available in 2ft x 8ft sections and 3ft x 8ft panels as required. Sections can be interconnected with one another to form nearly any size roadway, compound, or pad and are sized to correspond with traditional “road ply”, which nearly every concert promoter is familiar with.

Integrated Connection System

Each DuraDeck panel has pre-drilled connection holes that allow panels to be connected in both directions and even in a brickwork pattern, for greater support and strength. Users can choose between rigid metal links, for very heavy weight applications, and lighter weight plastic connectors for general use.

Each panel contains 8 connection holes, one in each corner of the mat and 4 in the center of the mat. These connector holes can accommodate Signature’s standard DuraLink and PlastiLink connectors or may be used with stakes, ropes, or other connection options.

Better than Plywood

DuraDeck ground protection mats provide a much better return on investment than traditional plywood. They are more economical, support much more weight, will not warp, rot, crack, delaminate, or absorb water and contaminants. These mats can be reused for many years. See the difference

  • Designed for repeated heavy use for 7+ years
  • Does not warp, rot or absorb water
  • Does not splinter or crack under heavy weights

DuraDeck is Used in Facilities Worldwide

DuraDeck has provided access and ground protection at facilities worldwide including: The National Mall, New York’s Central Park, US Open Golf, US Open Tennis, and many more.

DuraDeck® Installs Quickly and Stores Compactly

DuraDeck is designed to install quickly and to store compactly. DuraDeck mats weigh 86 lbs (39 kgs) and can be transported easily by two persons. Of course, sections can be transported using a forklift and then loose laid or connected with special links by personnel directly from pallets.
