Contractors who serve the civil market build projects for the common good. Their work includes roads, bridges, highways and utilities that keep their communities safe and thriving. Yet much of what they do takes place in remote or underdeveloped areas. In some cases, the site may feature unstable soils or ecologically sensitive wetlands. Civil construction mats from YAK MAT can solve issues concerning access and protecting the environment. Read on to learn more about how our ground mats for heavy equipment can help make the job easier for you.
Construction of new roads, freeways, highways, buildings, water or sewer systems, and the growing inner-city transportation systems requires access support and stability. Throughout the country, roadway improvements, water system upgrades and commercial buildings are on the rise. To effectively complete these projects, access mats are necessary to protect the construction area and reduce ground pressure as well as support heavy machinery and supplies.
Regardless of the construction project, our mats provide the support and access needed. Other uses include:
- Heavy equipment access
- Ground protection to minimize ground pressure
- Material and heavy equipment support
What Makes Civil Construction Mats Essential?
When used as temporary roadways and staging areas, our ground protection mats provide a stable and secure foundation for large-scale machinery. Without them, it may not be possible for cranes, dump trucks and other essential machines to reach vital areas.
They also serve an important purpose because they disperse the pressure exerted on the soil by tires and treads. This helps preserve areas where delicate ecosystems might otherwise be damaged by the activity. When utilized properly, these can reduce the impact crews have on the environment around them.
