Ideal for powerline contractors
Our TIMBERLITE mats have found the sweet spots between the 3-Ply, CLT’s, and timber mats. Made of pine middle timbers and mixed hardwood outsides timbers, these mats are light, durable, and flexible enough to contour to the ground below.
These lightweight access mats are the right choice for powerline contractors because they can serve as temporary roadways and staging areas for heavy equipment. They can be used to cover rough or unstable terrain, making it possible for trucks, cranes and other machines to cross these untamed expanses with ease.
Because they reduce the amount of pressure that heavy machinery puts on fragile soils and wetlands, they also help reduce the ecological impact of construction work in undeveloped areas. With so many transmission projects crossing the wilderness, having the proper support is critical.
Because TIMBERLITE is 50 percent lighter than traditional timber mats, you save on freight costs. These mats are even lighter than 3-Ply mats, yet they are significantly more durable making them a better long term solution for projects. Their relatively light weight also means you’ll save money on shipping costs when having them delivered to your site.
You face a wide range of conditions on a right-of-way. TIMBERLITE is more durable than a traditional 3-Ply or CLT mat, so you can use it in a larger variety of situations without upgrading to more expensive timber mats. These stout mats are also harder to break, therefore leaving less potential clean-up at the end of the project. With these durable access mats, you can count on having an access solution that will stand up to the conditions almost anywhere you need them.
TIMBERLITE contours to the ground, allowing strategic placement of temporary roads for heavy equipment and trucks to cross smoothly. Because they flex when you drive, these mats won’t shift or lift when equipment crosses. Having flexible access mats that bend but won’t break also means there’s less risk breaking under the intense pressure.
