PortaFloor worked with Shell Oil and one of their on site engineers to provide a solution for a key equipment structures. Shell was looking for a heavy duty structure flooring solution that could replace concrete and reduce their installation and logistics costs. After several tests, PortaFloor MAX in a custom color was chosen as the best solution over the other flooring and matting systems that were tested.

After a year of testing, the 416th Theater Engineer Command (USAR) has recognized the MAX flooring system as a deployable maintenance pad for their portable maintenance structures. Each area will be roughly 800 square feet and fit within a standard structure. The floor has been tested using the 54,900 pound M984 HEMTT Wrecker and light-weight aircraft aluminum plates to reinforce the point load weight of the jack stands.
PortaFloor MAX was tested with a rotary blasthole drilling rig at a major high-technology Mining and Construction manufacturer. MAX was installed on a prepared sub base with MAX transition ramps for easy on an off access for the rig. Several maneuvers were performed by the 176,000 lbs / 79,832 kg drilling rig including; zero radius turning, raising the drilling mast and deploying the multiple jacks to raise and secure the rig.
