MDM 17 – Bike Track Modular Plastic Flooring

I was walking past Quantico Tactical’s booth and I noticed this flooring sample on one of the tables. For a lot of our readers this is going to seem very mundane, but if you’ve lived in a tent, or worked in a tent, for weeks and months at a time, if you don’t put down some form of flooring, you’re going to be ankle deep in a mess rather quickly. 

Bike Track offers stainable, slip-resistant, 1″ and 2″ thick flooring as well as 2″ ICM flooring which features channels for cable management. That too is a big deal. There’s nothing worse than tripping all over power and data cords, except maybe standing in a mud puddle while you brief the CG.

The HDPE 4′ x 3.5′ panels snap together and can be installed without tools. Even better, they have NSNs.

    SSD, do you have any more pictures of this in use?

    This flooring is useful in many applications, as a 25-series I’ve used it to run both data and power cables throughout drash cities. We had a situation where they put the tents in basically a mud pit, so we had to put pallets down, then the flooring, and finally the bike track. What a mess.

    It’s a pretty unglamorous need, but it is a definite need. I’ve used the older version that was about 50% larger (3 sections/panel instead of 2). The new stuff is more pallet stackable and one man portable, so it seems like an improvement. It’s heavy and awkward, but it’s about the best thing there is for the job. We usually removed the vinyl flooring and used this instead. It is perforated so all the mud from your boots and water from your gear just works its way to the ground rather than becoming the slushy mess that happens with the vinyl flooring.

      Indeed the old stuff was pretty large and awkward, “body by Bike Track” is what many referred to it as! That’s what prompted us to re-evaluate the size and go towards the smaller size that it is currently.

    My unit has this flooring for our DRASH tents. We used it all this year at Yakima Training Center. It works really well and keeps long grass down, mud from coming up and if you have a small trench around the tent it helps on standing water as well. The do however suck at keeping down moon dust of National Training Center (just got back today actually). That is where the full fabric floor of a tent comes in handy.
