It’s no secret that the heavy industry sector faces unique difficulties when handling its operations, especially when dealing with equipment like cranes and rigs. Designed to handle even the toughest of jobs, crane mats are able to stand up to the demands of extreme applications without the risk of stress fractures or even sudden breakages like bolted mats. Instead, when you partner with a CLT supplier, you gain access to solutions that will stand the test of time and help you get the job done right.

How CLT Mats Work

CLT site safe access mats are specifically designed to improve upon the best features of Unlike their bolted counterparts TerraLam® Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are constructed using alternating perpendicular layers of wood that are bonded with a special adhesive for optimal performance. The adhesive allows mats to flex with each load and distribute weight evenly, resulting in increased strength and longevity.

Key benefits of using site safe CLT mats include:

  • High impact resistance and durability.
  • Increased life span (3-5 times that of traditional mats).
  • Glue lamination and wax sealed on all 4 edges of the mat to make it less vulnerable to moisture and rot.
  • Able to withstand the Canadian climate, all year-round.
  • Lower shipping costs due to the lightweight nature of the mats (up to 60% more load capacity), and more.
