One of the most challenging aspects of construction is dealing with the terrain. Not only do crews need to move heavy equipment over unstable and untamed ground, but they also need to be careful not to harm the environment. For machines with rubber tires, YAK MAT’s laminated hardwood mat products offer a superior solution to both concerns. Building in difficult areas becomes much easier, more convenient and ecologically responsible.
Our laminated mat provides the same access solutions as our hardwood timber mats. However, they are ideal for projects that need surface decking, temporary roads built or for use with rubber-tired equipment. In addition to construction usage, these can be utilized as ground pressure protection when transporting heavy equipment. They also can be put down as general ground covering at events or areas with excessive mud and water.
The Benefits of Our Hardwood Mats
Constructed of strong, durable hardwood timbers, these are ideal for helping builders tame rough sites without disturbing ecologically sensitive soils. When assembled over swampy areas, marshes, wetlands or other places with loose soil, they create a safe pathway. This allows tractors and other heavy vehicles to access the site safely in situations where there are no permanent roads yet. They also help minimize the pressure exerted by wheels and treads that would otherwise harm fragile ecosystems. Our products are built to the highest standards of quality.
They also provide numerous benefits and features such as:
- Strengthened with 3 layers 2′ x 8′ of lumber
- Ideal for rubber-tired equipment
- Chain pick up system
- Made of dense hardwoods
- Various sizes including custom sizing available
