Title: Ground covering

Abstract: A temporary ground covering for displacement on sandy, muddy or boggy ground. The covering includes a woven structure formed of warp and weft. The weave is such that each warp thread interlaces with the weft thread, following approximately half the intersections of the rows and columns of the weave. The warp thread is left in the remaining intersections for each warp thread to obtain at least one simple tight weave area followed by an area of floats. The alternation of the different areas causes contractions of the weft thread creating a significant relief of the obtained fabric. The covering includes flat threads over at least one part of the width of the woven structure on at least one of the surfaces. Each thread is taken, steadily or not, by weft threads placed at the end of the projections of the woven surface structure.
