Product Description

One of the most used mats for creating temporary access is the timber mat. When construction crews are tasked with managing untamed project sites, timber mats provide immediate access. Heavy equipment often has to cross areas where the ground is unprepared, wet, swampy and difficult to traverse. Contractors must be careful with the environment around them as construction vehicles can cause a lot of stress and damage to the ground. Hardwood access mats allow heavy equipment to access sites easily, safely and without damaging the ground. This is extremely important when projects intersect with landowners’ property.

Key Details

Made from hardwood, 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 construction mats such as these create a safe roadway. This makes it easier for large vehicles to access sites. Using these heavy-duty timber mats allows contractors to reach locations that may not otherwise be accessible because there are no safe access roads.
