Heavy-Duty Site Protection in a Smaller Package
Not every piece of heavy equipment covers a lot of ground. Certain cranes and other machinery utilized on construction projects have a relatively small footprint. However, that does not reduce the amount of pressure they exert on the ground. That can cause serious issues for contractors because the soil where they work may not be able to support them. This also increases the chances that work could have a negative impact on ecologically sensitive wetlands and other types of terrain. For these situations, YAK MAT’s outrigger mats offer the solution. Read on to learn more about how our outrigger pads can help builders across many sectors.
Ideal for Multiple Project Types
Outrigger mats provide extreme support for large cranes on projects throughout multiple industries. These mats are made of hardwoods and come with cable loops for easy lifting. They can be deployed underneath feet and supports of large-scale machines — giving them a stable platform in areas with soft or uneven soils. Additionally, they help disperse the intense pressure exerted by heavy-duty equipment. This reduces the environmental impact of construction work and prevents damage to fragile ecosystems. Without these, builders may run into problems with site access or environmental compliance.
