Choosing the Best Access Mats in Grande Prairie

Access mats in Grande Prairie are necessary to overcome terrain issues that result from a combination of the surrounding natural habitat and fluctuating weather conditions. Remote projects are known for having access difficulties, so investing in quality access mats you can use from project to project is a smart idea. GFI Solutions offers CLT access mats in Grande Prairie that are stronger, lighter and more durable than traditional bolted mats. Read on to find out why these access mats are your best choice.

Terrain Conditions

The terrain you are working in is one of the first aspects to consider when selecting a fitting access solution for your worksite. We provide access mats in Grande Prairie to help you overcome muddy, snowy, or slippery terrain with hardy Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats. Grande Prairie has a lot of ditches and streams that can hinder remote projects. GFI Solutions can provide your project with temporary access bridges that can be quickly installed for an easy solution.

Load-Bearing Capacity

How heavy are your machines? While traditional bolted mats can work, CLT access mats in Grande Prairie are the best choice for many remote projects. Our Site Safe CLT 300 access mat and Site Safe CLT 500 access mat can handle almost all typical machinery you will need to use on your project without compromising the safety of your employees and machines. CLT access mats will evenly distribute the weight of the load over the surface area, making them more durable than traditional bolted mats that do not use weight distribution. For heavier cranes and machinery you might use, check out our crane mats that are built to withstand the weight of cranes and heavier loads.

Weather Resistance

While traditional bolted mats are prone to damage from the constant weather flux that Grande Prairie has, access mats are cross-laminated and sealed to prevent weather damage. CLT access mats use an adhesive to bond the wood together and a wax seal on all four edges, preventing water, snow, and mud from wearing on the access mat unnecessarily. While bolted mats have gaps that can collect water and mud that may expand and contract during weather changes overnight, CLT access mats let Grande Prairie remote projects operate day to day without disruption due to access mat failure.

Environmental Impact

We understand that each remote project has environmental standards to uphold, which is why we have created our access mats to be biodegradable. The adhesive we use to seal the mats for protection is environmentally friendly, and the absence of metal bars or bolts means that the entire access mat can biodegrade. Rest assured that with GFI Solutions access mats, you are meeting your Provincial and Federal regulatory requirements for the land.
