Finally ready to find out why CLT access mats have garnered an industry-wide reputation for unbeatable performance? GFI has you covered. We’re proud to offer a wide variety of site-safe CLT access mats ranging from 300 to 700 level models appropriate for heavy-duty applications. Unlike traditional bolted mats, Cross Laminated Timber are made by gluing planks together with an environmentally safe adhesive in a perpendicular pattern. Bonding the planks together instead of using bolted points allows the stress of heavy loads to flex and evenly distribute throughout the mat, avoiding the risk of sudden failures or breakages. Despite weighing significantly less (nearly 40%) than their bolted counterparts, heavy-duty CLT stands up to the tasks faced by the power industry, including serving as rig and crane mats as needed. Core benefits to using CLT access mats for renewable energy projects include:
- High impact resistance
- Suitable for use in extreme conditions; including heat and cold.
- Solid matting top reduces tripping hazards, as well as tire damage to vehicles
- Able to handle heavy-duty applications
- Cheaper to ship due to the lightweight nature of the mats (60% more CLT mats can be shipped per load compared to bolted products), and more.
