The FODS Aviation Prevention Mats are designed to be used as the first line of defense for land to airside access points
Installing a FODS Prevention Mat System on access roads is a proactive technique to reduce and trap FOD before it poses a risk to the flight line. The surface of the FODS Prevention Mat is covered with pyramids that dislodge and clear FOD debris from the tire. The mats should be positioned with tapered and staggered pyramids parallel to the access point. FODS Prevention Mats are secured directly to concrete and asphalt roadways by anchors. Mats are connected together with hardware to form various configurations to fit any access point.
