Cranes are essential equipment for construction sites. They need to be seriously hefty machines to do all of the heavy lifting on the job. Unfortunately, their size and weight make it difficult for them to reach certain areas. This is especially true in places where there is loose soil, wetlands or environmentally sensitive terrain.
Without easy access for cranes, some projects simply aren’t possible. That is where timber crane mats from YAK MAT can provide the solution for contractors. These temporary wooden pathways and pads make it possible for large-scale machinery to get around a property safely, easily and without causing undue environmental impact.
CRANE MAT USES
Constructed of durable hardwood timbers, our wooden crane mats are utilized to create short-term roadways and staging areas for heavy machines. When assembled over wetlands, marshes and other areas with unstable ground, crane pads such as these create a safe pathway. They make it possible for equipment to be deployed where they need to be. With these in place, crews can reach locations they may not have been able to otherwise because of a lack of roadways. Our crane mats also help contractors protect the environment. Because they minimize the pressure exerted on the ground by large treads and tires, they preserve ecologically delicate areas.
