TRACKOUT PLATES – FOR CONSTRUCTION SITES
EPA regulations dictate, all construction site traffic must be limited snf directed to designated entrance and exit points.
Limiting vehicle traffic entrance and exits points of the construction ensures that each vehicle pass over trackout plates that help to remove soil and other contaminates from the vehicle.
Essentially, trackout plates scrap construction materials and other debri from vehicle tires.
SPECIFIC REGULATIONS INCLUDE:
A stabilized construction access is a temporary control practice defined by a point of entrance/exit to a construction site that is stabilized to reduce the tracking of mud and dirt onto public roads by construction vehicles.
Use at construction sites:
- Where dirt or mud is can be tracked onto public roads.
- Adjacent to water bodies.
- Where poor soils are encountered.
- Where dust is a problem during dry weather conditions.
This BMP may be implemented on a project-by-project basis in addition to other BMPs when determined necessary and feasible by the Resident Engineer (RE).
- Site conditions will dictate design and quantity of trackout plates needed.
Standards and Specifications
- Limit the number of entrance/exit points to a construction site.
- Limit speed of vehicles to control dust.
- Properly grade each construction entrance/exit to prevent runoff from tracking out of the construction site.
DEPLOYING TRACKOUT PLATES
Trackout plates, also known as rattle tracks, rattle grate, free flow curbs, exit ramps or road plates, are the most common method deployed to prevent contaminates and soil from tracking out with construction vehicles.
BMP Contractors delivers and maintains top quality trackout plates for the life of your construction project. Our trackout plates ensure compliance and perform as required. We don’t waste your time or reputation with cheap, unmaintained, or poor quality plates.
NOT ALL TRACKOUT PLATES ARE CREATED EQUAL
Poor quality track-out plates or poorly designed exit plates can often be more trouble than solution.
Erosion Control Experts utilizes Rattle Grate®. These plates are carefully constructed to reduce vehicle vibration minimizing oil or other contaminates from the passing vehicles.
Our track-out plates are always clean and kept to rigorous maintenance schedules. You will never find a poorly functioning track-out plate at a job site, or one that leads to more contamination, not less.
