GAUSS ENGINEERING SAND LADDERS
This Company manufacturers Aluminum Sand Ladders that they market themselves and also stamp with other companies logos to be sold under their brand.
They offer a reinforced version, which has the center section backed up with a full length runner down the centerline. For a UNIMOG, I think these versions would be the desired option. I've never used mine (single layer), but I would not be surprised if my truck tacoed them in loose sand. Maybe not, but the reinforced version looks like the better bet.
They also offer a mounting system that looks well thought out. Using two resilient donuts and a clamping nut with a security drive, it looks like they would hold the panels snugly, without rattles, and with at least a layer of security. An additional locking provision for some areas of travel would be easy enough to add.
They are located in Budapest, Hungary, and their products are available in the UK, Europe, Russia, etc. Nothing specifically listed for the US /Canada on their website.
Some photos, starting with the mounts.
