Construction crews are tasked with shaping raw, untamed lands. This means heavy equipment often has to cross areas where the ground is less than stable. At the same time, contractors must be careful with the environment around them. Construction vehicles can cause a lot of stress to wetlands and other ecologically sensitive areas. When it comes to building on challenging terrain, timber mats from YAK MAT help get the job done. They allow heavy equipment to access sites easily, safely and without damaging the delicate ecosystems around them.
Made from hardwood timbers, these timber mats are used to create temporary roadways and staging areas for construction equipment. When assembled over swamps, marshes, wetlands or any other area with loose soil, hardwood mats such as these create a safe pathway. This makes it easier for large vehicles to access construction sites. Using these timber mats allows contractors to reach locations that may not otherwise be accessible because there are no roads. They also help protect the environment because they minimize pressure exerted by heavy equipment and prevent wheels and treads from tearing the ground.
