Portable Aluminium Roadways, Runways and Helipads
for the Defence Industry

Based on the isle of Anglesey, North Wales, is the defence division of Europe’s number one municipal vehicle manufacturer, FAUN.

FAUN TRACKWAY design and manufacture a range of high quality portable access systems for use in military and civilian disaster and emergency relief operations at its internationally accredited production facilities in the UK.

Capable of withstanding loads of up to 70 tonnes, FAUN’s portable aluminium TRACKWAY MLC 70 has the robust qualities demanded by heavy plant machinery, vehicles and equipment used in the construction industry.

Unbeaten in all trials, its products are a trusted ally to 30 different militaries around the world. TRACKWAY was initially designed and developed for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

FAUN TRACKWAY employs a team of highly skilled engineers dedicated to exploring new product designs and working alongside future and existing customers to create bespoke solutions to their problems.

FAUN TRACKWAY is the successor of Laird (Anglesey) Ltd and has been producing military grade aluminium products in North Wales for over 60 years.

Portable Military Roadways

Heavy Ground Mobility System (HGMS)
and Medium Ground Mobility System (MGMS)

FAUN produces two complete portable roadways solutions: Heavy Ground Mobility System (HGMS) and Medium Ground Mobility System (MGMS)

HGMS can withstand repeated vehicle loads of up to 70 tonnes and 50m can be deployed in under 10 minutes.

HGMS allows vehicles to move with ease over difficult terrain conditions such as sand, snow, mud, swamp and ice helping to speed mobility and protect assets.

HGMS can also carry an additional 50m TRACKWAY, towed behind the chassis on a trailer. This enables longer roadways to be laid quickly and connected easily.

FAUN’s Medium Ground Mobility System (MGMS) consists of the same key elements as HGMS. MGMS comprises 32-metre lengths and can be deployed in under 6 minutes by two people.

Like all FAUN products, MGMS is unbeaten in all trials and can withstand repeated loads of up to 30 tonnes. It is most appropriate for vehicles with pneumatic tyres and can also be used with JCB and specialist dispenser for beach landings.

Temporary Runways and Helipads

FAUN has three aluminium panelling designs suitable to create Forward Operating Pads for Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft – the Helicopter Landing Mat.
They are designed to alleviate brown out while marking out a clear landing area.
