The conveyor belting used at mines to carry ore over long distances is almost indestructible. What better material to use as a load bin mat in a bakkie or trailer?  Such conveyor belting is normally hard to come by, but Ignatius Smit, an entrepreneur in Villeria, Pretoria, has turned customised conveyor belting into a business. He cuts bakkie or trailer mats from 10mm-thick conveyor belting, supplying them in any size and shape. By protecting the load bin, such a mat can add years to the working life of the vehicle.

Prices vary from R600 for a double cab to R800 for a single cab, excluding VAT. Ignatius can dispatch it anywhere in the country at the buyer’s cost. All customers need to do is specify the make, model and year of the bakkie, or supply the inner dimensions of the trailer.
