EconomatMBTM has been specifically developed by Zigma® Ground Solutions as an efficient alternative to traditional builders’ plywood providing a low cost, easy to deploy and reusable product for a wide range of uses within the construction, groundwork’s and events industries.

Combatting the risk of slippage or falls, injury from splinters, short lifespan, the increasing costs of plywood and environmental costs of its disposal, EconomatMB provides a safer and more economical and environmentally friendly alternative.

As with plywood, Zigma’s EconomatMB can be used as a tough multi-use construction board and temporary access mat; mixing of cement, storing spoil, creating construction walkways or protective up stands – jobs where plywood would typically be used. However, unlike plywood, being made from 100% recycled low density polyethylene (LDPE), EconomatMB provides considerable long term advantages over plywood. Being weatherproof, flexible, less prone to breakage or splintering and supplied with a traction surface for both personnel and vehicular movement, EconomatMB delivers enhanced performance, health and safety benefits and substantial long term cost savings.

At just 32kg, EconomatMB is easy to handle and simple to deploy by a two man team. If used for temporary access or ground protection there is a range of connection options to create access routes or walkways, working pads, storage depot areas or event flooring. Economat MB has many uses on jobsites, not just for temporary access, and compares very well to the equivalent plywood price, but with the advantages of being re-usable, weatherproof, safe and easy to deploy.

  • Construction Board
