Now is the time to change your current access matting options and upgrade to a more robust, safer and cost-effective option. Customers in heavy industries such as oil and gas, mining, and even forestry count on GFI Solutions to provide safe site crane mats for sale and rent.
We are proud to be the leading Canadian supplier of Sterling’s site safe access mat solutions, offering you innovative and safe matting solutions for your upcoming project. Our Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats are among the highest quality crane and rig mats available on the market. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of our crane access mats.
Engineered to Succeed
CLT crane mats are engineered to be more durable, lighter and faster to install than traditional bolted access mats. Instead of bolts, the wooden planks, made from Southern Yellow Pine, are glued together using an environmentally safe adhesive which saves you up to 40% on labour and up to 50% on freight costs.
Eliminating the use of bolts decreases the weight of our CLT mats, making them approximately two-thirds the weight of traditional bolted mats. This will allow you to fit up to 72 mats per load, significantly cutting your transportation cost. The lightweight CLT crate mats will also enable you to fit more mats on shuttle trucks and loaders, increasing your savings on installation and removal.
We strongly believe that our CLT crane mats are engineered to succeed, which is why we offer a no damage and no replacement cost guarantee; you will never have to pay for damaged mats or if your mats need to be replaced.
Stability and Support
When using crane mats, you are looking for mats that provide stability during heavy lifts and support the weight of your machinery. Our CLT crane mats are able to withstand heavy loads as the adhesion allows the mats to flex under pressure and distribute weight evenly throughout the mat rather than putting stress on certain bolted areas. The flexibility of the mat ensures the durability and high performance of our CLT mats even under heavy loads.
We offer the standard 500 series, 5-ply CLT mat, available in several sizes, ready to handle the heavy machinery in your project. For more robust mats best suited for heavier loads, we also offer the 700 series, a seven-ply CLT. Some projects require mats with different specifications and sizes; you can contact our team for customized CLT mats.
