DICA Acquires SlatTrax

DICA has acquired SlatTrax, the next generation of ground protection and temporary access road for a variety of markets, including general construction, utilities and public works departments. SlatTrax is an engineered ground protection solution that can be deployed mechanically or manually. Both options allow users to quickly deploy and retrieve the roadway.

The company acquired SlatTrax from Gary Ringus, who was the founder and owner. DICA has assumed all ongoing operations for the SlatTrax brand, and Ringus remains involved, working as a consultant and a manufacturer’s representative during the transition.

“SlatTrax is not a mat – it’s a temporary roadway made up of 12.5-foot and 25-foot sections. The sectional design makes the construction of the temporary roads highly efficient because the slats can be separated without the use of tools or easily combined to create longer roads,” said Kevin Koberg, DICA’s marketing director.

The roadway can be deployed from a spool attachment on a skid steer or manually moved into place by one or two people using built-in straps. SlatTrax is made of 3/4-inch recycled plastic slats that are connected with spine and capture joints that enable articulation (rolling) and arcing (curving) of the roadway. https://dicausa.com
