These wing mats are designed to protect the aircraft wing from damage by the hose and nozzle during overwing refuelling. They are manufactured from thick durable Urethane, which is fuel and ultraviolet light resistant, weatherproof, non-marking and non-abrasive.
The mats are also heavy enough so that they will not become displaced in windy conditions. They are available in a range of colours but our normal stock colour is high visibility Orange. However, in order to reduce risk of supplying the incorrect fuel grade (mis-fuelling), we also stock Red (for AVGAS) and Black (for Jet A1). Using the appropriate colour for the fuel being dispensed causes the refuelling operator to think about the fuel grade required, and any third parties (including the pilot) could also be more aware of the grade of fuel being delivered.
