MOBI-MAT is an extremely tough, ultra-light, non-slip ground matting developed by Deschamps of France that gives temporary and safe access to users across unstable, natural surfaces (covered with sand, mud or snow). MOBI-MAT ground cover has applications in a huge range of areas. It can be used by: holidaymakers on the beach; yachting enthusiasts and lifeguards as a boat-ramp; walkers as pathways to help protect sensitive environments; work crews as a temporary roadway; helicopter crews as a helipad etc. Deschamps specialises in the manufacture of technical textiles and is present in many countries, including the USA, where the company has a subsidiary.
MOBI-MAT can be left in place permanently on unstable grounds such as sand, grass, snow, gravel and dirt. Or it can be moved for special events, as needed. Its permeable structure allows vegetation to grow through it, so it won’t damage sensitive surfaces such as sand dunes, hill paths or sports turf. And because it is so easily removed, Mobi-Mat complies with environmental regulations, meaning Mobi-Mat can go where other surfacing materials cannot. Just three of the many types of Mobi-Mat are detailed below.
MOBI-MAT TOPX - Some of the great advantages of the innovative TOPX matting patented by Deschamps are its very lightweight woven structure, its inert, extremely tough surface and the fact that it can be installed rapidly by two people without any special equipment over sand, grass, snow, gravel, dirt etc

Winter Hack: Textured Rubber that Grips Slick, Icy Surfaces

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.
The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
