About the Access Trax Accessible Mat

Access Trax is proud to produce versatile portable access mats in the USA. Access Trax mats are 3 foot by 3 foot flat squares made from a durable plastic that won’t degrade in the sun. Each panel only weighs 5 pounds! The lightweight nature paired with the shape allows you to easily transport and store Access Trax in the back of your car or garage without taking up much space. Removable hinges allows you to design your wheelchair accessible pathway in any configuration (turns, platforms, etc.). You can even change the pathway layout in seconds whenever needed. For more detailed product info, visit our product page here.

For more permanent applications, simply stake down the mats since there are holes in each corner for this purpose. The firm and stable surface is ADA-compliant when installed as directed and has been tested successfully with many mobility devices. Even event coordinators and vendors love using the pathway when moving heavy equipment across difficult terrain! With Access Trax, you can stop worrying about how you’ll get where you’re going and just enjoy the experience.

1. Access Trax for Accessible Outdoor Events

The first use we’ll describe is for outdoor events. Access Trax is perfect for any outdoor event on terrain such as sand, grass, gravel, or even snow! When you need a firm and stable walking surface for your event participants and spectators, you can rely on Access Trax. You can quickly and easily create your pathway layout at your event to reach all areas such as check-in, vendors, viewing areas, and of course awards. For complete ADA-compliance at the beach, consider making your pathway “double-wide” for a 6ft wide pathway- this allows people to pass each other easily. The pathway is not just for people who use wheelchairs or walkers. A stable walkway is preferred by all people including parents with baby strollers! Access Trax is available for rent and for sale.

2. ADA Beach Access Mat at National Parks

The Access Trax accessible pathway is perfect for ADA-compliance at National Parks. The firm and stable surface can be used for accessibility for visitors with disabilities, the elderly, and parents with baby strollers. Access can be for desert sand, campgrounds, river and lake access, and beaches for example. Make sure guests of all abilities can visit your beautiful Parks! Access Trax is the best solution because it is ADA-compliant when installed as directed, easy to setup and maintain, durable and long-lasting, made in the USA, and cost-effective. Individual mats can be staked down for long-term use all year-round, or the pathway can be installed for specific events or seasons.

Case Study: Golden Gate Recreational Area

Access Trax CEO Kelly Twichel installed mats as a permanent beach access solution at the Golden Gate Recreational Area in San Francisco. Crissy Field East Beach is a beautiful and highly accessible park with a parking lot, accessible restrooms, and even a free beach wheelchair program run by the Park Service. This beach park is on the San Francisco Bay and has amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Access Trax provides an ADA-compliant firm and stable surface over sand for park visitors who use mobility devices, parents with strollers, and all people. The pathway extends out from the boardwalk in a “T” shape. If you’re lucky when you visit there, you may spot local sand sculpture artist Zach Pine teaching a free class on making sand globes!

3. Wheelchair Access Mats for Beaches

Who doesn’t want to have access all the way to the water or hard-pack sand at the beach? All community members and tourists deserve to feel this freedom. Access Trax can provide an ADA-compliant solution for providing a firm and stable walkway for beach-goers to enjoy the sand or water. The beach mat can be installed for busy seasons, special occasions, or year-round because it is durable, safe, and long-lasting. Lifeguard vehicles can drive across the Access Trax with no issues.

Access Trax mats can be staked down to the sand and easily maintained by the city or parks and recreation staff. Maintenance may include sweeping (daily or weekly depending on wind patterns and foot traffic) and grading the sand underneath (perhaps every 6-12 weeks depending on local conditions). Mats are not labor intensive for crews to pick up for maintenance or removal for off-season or adverse weather such as hurricanes. The Access Trax also stack flat for storage, taking up very little room in either lifeguard towers or public works storage. The mats can also be offered to the public as a solution for meeting ADA requirements for beach event permits.

4. Portable Access Mat for Vacations and Travel

If your next vacation includes the beach, camping or other outdoor activities, consider adding Access Trax to your travel packing list! If any member of your family uses a mobility device such as a wheelchair, walker, crutches, or cane, Access Trax is the perfect solution for accessibility at your fingertips. Did you know that the Access Trax portable access pathway can fold and stack only inches thick? This makes it easy to check as luggage on the airplane to take on your adventure! Most airlines will accept it as your assistive technology and waive the baggage fee if you have a disability. You can also use the shoulder carrying strap to transport the panels easily. Once at the beach or other outdoor area, it only takes one person to set up in seconds to minutes. If the panels are connected in a straight path, they simply accordion unfold in seconds!

6. Accessibility at Playgrounds

Have you ever been to a playground and couldn’t access the swings or play structure because of sand or wood chips? What if the parent uses a mobility device and can’t play with their child at the playground? This is very common unfortunately. Access Trax is a great solution for a temporary accessible pathway at parks and playgrounds so everyone can participate. Contact your local Parks and Recreation department or school Special Education department to start the conversation around accessibility solutions for yourself or your child.
