Extra-Strength Support for Serious Equipment
Although YAK MAT’s temporary roadways and access products are made from dense, durable hardwood timbers, there are certain circumstances in which more support is needed. For example, contractors working in the downstream energy sector may need to support extremely large drills for a long time. Work being performed in ecologically sensitive wetlands may have dozens of large-scale trucks coming in and out of the site every hour. For these projects, our rig mats make the most sense for accessing and protecting job sites. Read on to learn more about why these mats for heavy structures can be a godsend for your company.
Strengthened by Steel
Our rig mats feature the same robust timber construction as our other products. However, the wood is bolstered by the addition of a rigid steel frame. This makes them the best mats for heavy structures because they can withstand the most punishing usage without fail. These can be indispensable for the downstream market, where they can be deployed as oil rig mats. They also serve an important purpose in the marine construction industry, providing a platform on barges for cranes and other large equipment.
Along with the added strength supplied by their frames made of steel, rig mats give builders the same advantages as our other products. They can be used to create roads that allow vehicles to reach remote sites. They give crews safe and stable platforms from which they can work. Further, these oilfield mats alleviate the pressure generated by machines, which prevents disturbances to fragile ecosystems.
The many features of these include:
- Made of dense hardwoods
- Notched for easy lifting
- Various sizes including custom sizing available
Without them in the field, construction workers may not be able to get to areas with soft, uneven ground. They may also be in violation of environmental regulations.
DIMENSIONS LOAD SIZE WEIGHT (lbs.)
8’ × 6” × 20’ 10 – 12 3,581 – 4,120
8’ × 6” × 40’ 5 – 6 6,975 – 8,025
In addition to these, we also offer custom sizes and dimensions to meet your project’s specific needs. No matter what the terrain has to offer or what applications you need them for, our mats make accessing your site much easier.
Having a stable foundation for your equipment is critical, especially when you have to contend with challenging conditions. Whether you need something to mitigate the impact of your activities on the environment or have to deal with soft ground, our mats can serve a number of functions on the jobsite, including:
- Stabilization for drilling rigs
- Load distribution
- Additional strength and support for rigs and extremely heavy equipment
