Whenever heavy equipment has to be deployed to a project site, access is of the utmost importance. Job sites often have uneven or rough terrain, or they feature environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands. Creating a safe and stable platform for cranes and other large machines is crucial for ensuring the job is done right without damaging the property. That is why contractors use temporary roadways and platforms built from heavy-duty hardwood to support and transport their machinery. That is also why they supplement those solutions with transition mats from YAK MAT. Read on to learn about how our transition mat products make work easier in a variety of industries.

What Transition Mats Can Do for You

Our transition mats are available to provide a ramp for large-scale construction gear. These mats allow trucks, excavators and all other types of machinery to reach matted access roads and other sites easily. They can be custom-made for your specific project needs.

  • Made of dense hardwoods
  • Notched for easy lifting
  • Ramped edges for easy crossing
  • Various sizes including custom sizing available

4’ × 12” × 8’ 42 – 48 930 – 1,070

In addition to these dimensions, we also can provide custom sizes and shapes to meet your specific needs on the jobsite.

Recommended Utilizations

These mats are versatile enough to be used for a variety of functions on the jobsite, including as heavy machinery ramps and more. They can be used for:

  • Transition ramps for access roads and bridges
  • Track equipment and rubber tire equipment/vehicles

Not Recommended Utilizations

Although they can serve a number of purposes for your project, there are certain situations where these mats are not recommended for use. These include:

  • Not for use on ice

Transition mats can be utilized in a number of project types across a wide selection of industries. For example, they can be used in civil projects as a smoother shift between existing roads and temporary ramps for construction trucks. Without these in use, contractors may have a difficult time reaching matting set up for their crane or excavators. They also may experience a greater risk of injuries caused by sudden drop-offs from the edges of their matting.
