Geo-textiles and Pro Aero Mats:
While not necessary, Geo-textiles are an inexpensive way to speed installation and removal time, as the presence of a geo-textile provides a clean and uniform installation surface and prevents debris or mud from interfering with the Pro Aero Mats connection system. Geo-textiles can be used to provide a barrier between dirt, mud and the mats above, and inevitably minimizes the cleaning required upon removal of the Aero Mats.

Depending on the type of geo-textile utilized and how porous it is, it can help keep mud and subsurface water from seeping up to the working surface of the mats and make your site safer for pedestrian and vehicle traffic. To use a geo-textile in combination with pro Aero Mats, simply unroll the geo-textile on the ground surface and install the Aero Mats using the standard installation procedures.
