Conquer The Canadian Terrain

It’s no secret that the Canadian landscape can be pose difficulties for companies looking to transport resources to and from worksites.

Introducing the TerraLam® 500 Series

Stronger, stiffer, and less than half the weight of comparable hardwood crane mats, TerraLam’s 5-layer 500 mats are your first choice for heavy duty access mat solutions. Created using the unique Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) technique, TerraLam’s alternating perpendicular layers of wood are bonded with a special adhesive for unmatched strength and safety in a lightweight solution. This allows TerraLam®’s to equally distribute loads through the entire mat rather than specific bolting points. Another consideration are knots. Knots are a weak point in boards and a huge problem with bolted mats structural integrity. The knots in boards used to make bolted mats have multiple weak points resulting in cracking and breaking. However, with TerraLam®CLT, knots are neutered by adhesive bonding 100% of the board surface to another board. There are no longer any weak points, therefore the knot size is irrelevant with TerraLam® CLT access mats. This design leads to a more durable and weight resistance option than traditional matting options, as well as a longer life cycle for each mat. Crafted from southern yellow pine, TerraLam® access mats offer superior value for the price and can be delivered quickly with GFI Solutions on demand 24-hour service.
