Many years ago, U-TECK was approached by a major Regional Bell Operating Company (RBOC) to address their need for a herbicide-free alternative to control unwanted vegetation around pedestals. The solution is now known as WeedEnder®. Comprised of a dense, multi-directional needling of specially formulated synthetic polyester fibers, the material is additionally impregnated with a special resin with ultraviolet inhibitors and fire-resistant properties. Constructed from 100% recycled material, WeedEnder increases visibility, decreases herbicide use and site maintenance, and proves to be extremely durable.

Not to be confused with landscape fabrics, the ¼ inch matting is rugged and strong, held in place with a specially designed 316 stainless steel staking system and an adhesive/caulking formulation, created especially for use with the WeedEnder material, that can be used in wet or dry conditions. But as tough as it is, WeedEnder offers unusual versatility by allowing it to be rolled up in the event of line repairs or additions then rolled back into position without any decrease in performance.

While Ped-Mat dramatically reduces damage from Bush-Hogs and other heavy equipment by increasing visibility around your pedestals, it is also great for public relations by eliminating unsightly overgrown grass around pedestals or other fixtures on or next to someone’s manicured lawn. You get all of these benefits without the burden of weed-eating or unsightly herbicide use.

Product Specifications

Ped-Mat 1 is die-cut to fit around a round pedestal with a 6", 8", 10", 12", or 14" diameter.

Ped-Mat 2 is die-cut to fit around a square or rectangular pedestal with the following dimensions: 6 5/8" square, 12 7/8" square, or 10 ½" x 23.

Ped-Mat 3 is not die-cut and fits in those hard-to-fit areas, such as next to poles, other pedestals, or other obstructions. You cut it to the size and shape needed.

Joining Strip is a 4" x 25' strip to join the WeedEnder rolls.

316 Stainless Steel Stakes are 6" long and are designed to hold the mat in place. The top hooks over and into the mat, while the bottom hooks under to keep the stake from pulling out of the ground. 316 stainless steel construction keeps rust at bay for longer life.

316 Stainless Steel Staples measure 1 1/4" x 5/8 and are packed 2,000 per box. These are used to join two widths of WeedEnder material with the joining strip.

Manual Staple Gun holds 150 stainless steel staples and is specially designed for use with our staples and the WeedEnder material. Pre-set depth allows staple penetration through the material for splices and repairs.

Adhesive/Caulk is specially formulated for primerless adhesion to the WeedEnder material and the metal or wooden guardrail posts (in wet or dry conditions) to inhibit weed growth.
