Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Mats

Generally, traditional bolted mats are the primary choice for site-safe access solutions; however, there are better options available on the market. CLT swamp mats are much more suited for heavy industries than traditional bolted mats. Instead of using traditional Douglas Fir to manufacture access mats, CLT mats are manufactured from Long Leaf Southern Yellow Pine wood fiber, which is 33% stronger than Douglas Fir. Compared to traditional bolted mats, CLT swamp mats are a safer and longer-lasting access solution for heavy equipment and heavy loads.

Safer For the Environment

Long Leaf Southern Yellow Pine wood is not only 33% stronger than Douglas Fir, but it’s also much more sustainable as it grows to harvestable maturity in approximately 20 years, whereas Douglas Fir takes up to 80 years. At GFI Solutions, we believe that it’s our responsibility to ensure the safety of your machinery, crew and environment, which is why we offer sustainable access matting solutions that can meet the needs of your project without causing harm to the environment.

Solid Foundation

The adhesion used to bond the fiber in our CLT swamp mats create a smooth and solid top surface that eliminates many hazards on the job site. Unlike traditional bolted mats, CLT mats don’t rely on bolts which removes the risk of puncture injuries or vehicle damage from loose bolts or gaps between the boards. GFI solutions Site Safe CLT access mats also have a wax sealer on all four edges of our swamp mats to reduce moisture absorption and increase the longevity of the mats.

Lightweight and Cost Effective Solution

There are many factors that determine the budget of your matting needs, including the cost of the product, transport, installation, removal and storage. Our CLT swamp mats are engineered to be two-thirds the weight of traditional bolted mats! We can fit 72 CLT swamp mats per load, saving you up to 60% in transportation costs!
