Swamp Mats Vs Access Mats: What’s The Difference?

Need help determining what kind of matting best suits the unique requirements of your job site? Finding the right fit is paramount to success and helps guarantee easy hauling as well as the overall longevity of your purchase. In the matting industry, swamp mats are a widely used term that can refer to two different types of products: general access mats or rig mats. While both are extremely versatile in nature, knowing the difference will help you get the best results both today and down the line. For heavy-duty solutions typically serviced by rig mats, SiteSafe™ 500 series mats are built to perform, and 300 level mats provide exceptional service for a wide variety of other applications.

Wondering what makes CLT mats so unique compared to traditional bolted access mats? Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are constructed with alternating perpendicular layers of wood that are then bonded with a special adhesive for unmatched strength and safety in a lightweight solution that’s built to last. This method means that CLT mats are able to flex with each load to distribute weight evenly, resulting in increased strength and longevity. Addition benefits of CLT mats include:


  • High impact resistance and durability.
  • 3-5 times the lifespan of bolted mats.
  • Glue lamination and wax sealed on all 4 edges of the mat make it less vulnerable to moisture and rot.
  • Able to withstand the Canadian climate, all year-round.
  • Solid matting top reduces tripping hazards, as well as the tired damage to vehicles.
  • Lower shipping costs due to the lightweight nature of the mats (up to 60% more load capacity), and more.
