Access Mat Rentals in Canada

Access mats are temporary portable solutions designed to help workers and heavy machinery navigate through Canada’s unstable terrain. Generally, access mats can be used in remote locations or on large worksites for temporary roadways, temporary staging yards and drilling pads.

Since access mats can be manufactured using a wide variety of materials and different compositions, the first step in choosing the right access mat is choosing the right material for your needs. Learn more about choosing the right access mat below!

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Access Mats

With the current technological advancements nowadays, GFI Solutions’ access mats are manufactured using our innovative Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) technology. Instead of fastening planks of wood together using bolts, CLT mats use an environmentally safe structural adhesive to bond the planks together.

Sustainable and Long Lasting Access Solution

While traditional mats use Douglas Fir, which grows to harvestable maturity in 80 years, our CLT mats are manufactured using Long Leaf Southern Yellow Pine, which only needs about 20 years to grow to maturity. Not only is Long Leaf Southern Yellow Pine much more sustainable than Douglas Fir, but it is also 33% stronger! Combined with our environmentally safe adhesive, our CLT access mats are three to five times more robust than our competition, offering you a sustainable and long-lasting access solution.

Lightweight and Cost-Effective Access Solution

Now that we’ve established the strength and durability of CLT access mats, it’s time to uncover their cost. As a project manager, the cost of access mats doesn’t only include the price of the product, but it also incorporates delivery, installation and removal costs. Since CLT access mats are two-thirds the weight of traditional bolted mats, GFI Solutions can transport 72 CLT access mats per load, saving you up to 60% in transportation costs!

As our CLT access mats are lighter in weight, you can fit more mats on loaders and shuttle trucks, increasing your savings by up to 40% on installation and removal costs. When choosing GFI’s CLT access mats, you’re definitely choosing the more cost-effective option.

Bring Down Your Costs with Access Mat Rentals

Other factors that contribute to the cost of your access matting budget are washing, transporting and storing your access mats. As per Canada’s matting standards, used access mats must be properly washed and bleached to avoid cross-contamination. Once you’ve completed your project, why spend unnecessary amounts of time and money on cleaning, transporting and storing your access mats? With GFI Solutions’ access mat rental service, you can eliminate extra costs and only pay for what your project requires! Our access mat rental services allow us to take the responsibility off your hands!
