Tired of Mats Breaking Down? Get Better ROI With CLT!

It’s no surprise that, despite being thought of as the industry staple for many years, bolted mats aren’t without their share of issues. Aside from their heavyweight that can lead to high shipping fees, bolted mats can be prone to sudden breakages and provide you with a life cycle that may be shorter than anticipated, leaving your crews in a bind. Designed to remedy these inconveniences, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are a relatively new addition to the market that have already made a name for themselves as a superior contender.

Why the hype?

For one, CLT mats weigh up to 40% less than standard bolted mats and offer a life cycle that is 3-5 times the length, saving you on shipping and giving you a better long-term investment out the gate. As well, instead of cracking under pressure, CLT mats are designed to provide exceptional results, even when exposed to heavy loads. With a 500-series lineup that’s capable of tackling heavy-duty loads like those expected of crane and rig mats while still allowing you to transport up to 25% more mats per haul, there’s no question the CLT mats are a winner for both your wallet and your overall performance. In fact, you can expect to save as much as 60% on transport, giving you extra money to spend where it’s needed. Not bad for the new guy on the block, right?

The CLT Method

The secret to the success of Cross Laminated Timber comes down to their unique design. Each mat is created by bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive instead of bolting heavier plants together. Since the planks are glued, not bolted, CLT mats can flex under pressure to evenly distribute the load and reduce the chance of failure. This all translates to incredible durability and performance for every load, job after job.
