Making Marine Construction Easier and Safer

Perhaps no type of project is more challenging than marine construction. Building bridges and other projects on or near lakes, rivers and seas often means equipment built for the land has to be brought onto the water. This usually requires the cranes and other heavy machinery to be floated on barges or ships. In these cases, protecting the decks from damage caused by tires and treads becomes a high priority. Other times, builders need a stable platform from which they can dredge or cross wet ground. This is why contractors have come to rely on marine construction mats from YAK MAT.

What Floating Timber Mats Can Do for You

Marine construction can sometimes require cranes and other large-scale machines to be utilized. To protect the foundation and floor of the vessels on which they float, YAK MAT provides barge mats and other solutions for decking and proper stabilization. These products improve access and create a more secure platform from which crews can ply their trades.


Protection of your fleet from heavy equipment can be resolved by using YAK MAT’s various matting solutions. Other uses include:

  • Barge mats for marine decking
  • Temporary wood roads
  • Bridge matting for crossings

Without these on the job site, contractors may experience damage to boats and barges caused by tires and treads. They also may have greater difficulty accessing certain areas on their projects. With these in place, however, workers’ jobs will be easier and safer.
