Designed to control vegetation around airport post lighting, directional signs, wind socks, fences and buildings, the Echo Advisory Airfield Mat System also reduces damage caused by mowing equipment to airfield lighting signs and other objects. An added benefit, the system prevents erosion around the base of light or sign fixtures, which can cause water to pool under the fixture. The mats unique football shape and size is designed to realistically complement the mowing path around runway lights. Mower equipment can overlap the edge of the mat, completely cutting all the vegetation around the light. There is no need to return to the light with a line trimmer or to spray an erosion causing herbicide.
