Solving Challenging Worksite Access Problems with Swamp Mats

Solving Challenging Worksite Access Problems with Swamp Mats

In construction and resource industries, worksite access can be a significant challenge. Many projects take place in remote or environmentally sensitive areas where traditional access routes are limited, if not entirely absent. It’s in these challenging terrains that swamp mats from GFI Solutions prove to be invaluable assets, offering solutions to access problems that might otherwise bring projects to a standstill. Next, we will discuss how GFI Solutions’ swamp mats conquer common worksite access problems. Keep reading to find out more.

Understanding the Challenge

Worksites located in remote or heavily forested areas face a variety of challenges. Without the proper access solutions, vehicles and equipment can quickly become bogged down, causing delays, resource wastage, and environmental damage. This is where swamp mats from GFI Solutions come into play, providing much-needed stability and protection for equipment, personnel, and the environment.

The Versatility of Swamp Mats

Swamp mats, access mats or ground protection mats are robust, portable platforms designed to create a stable surface on unstable or muddy terrains. At GFI Solutions, we offer CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) swamp mats, traditional bolted access mats, and used swamp mats to suit every project’s access needs and budget. Here’s how our inventory of swamp mats can solve some of the most common worksite access problems:

1) Preservation of Sensitive Environments

In ecologically delicate areas like wetlands or forests, preserving the natural habitat is a top priority. GFI Solutions’ swamp mats distribute the weight of heavy machinery, preventing damage to fragile ecosystems. This ensures that construction or resource extraction activities can coexist with nature without causing harm.

2) Preventing Soil Erosion

Swamp mats act as a barrier between heavy equipment and the ground. By reducing ground pressure and minimizing soil disturbance, they help prevent soil erosion and protect bodies of water from sediment contamination. This, in turn, contributes to maintaining water quality.

3) Access to Remote Areas

GFI Solutions’ swamp mats are portable and can be easily installed and removed, making them ideal for accessing remote or hard-to-reach locations. They provide a stable pathway for equipment traversing challenging terrain, enabling efficient project execution. With GFI Solutions’ mat delivery and installation services, our team can ensure your swamp mats are correctly installed and ready to go. That way, you can focus on other aspects of the setup and execution of your project.

4) Minimizing Equipment Damage

The harsh conditions of challenging work sites can take a toll on heavy equipment. Swamp mats provide a level surface that reduces wear and tear on machinery, extending their lifespan and saving on maintenance costs.

5) Cost-Efficiency

While swamp mats are an initial investment, they pay off in the long run by reducing project delays and equipment repair costs. The cost-efficiency of GFI Solutions’ access mats is especially evident in remote areas where alternative access solutions may be prohibitively expensive.

Meet The New Site Access Champion

As we mentioned above, Cross Laminated Timber matting is a relatively new addition to the site access field. Despite being a recent addition, TerraLam® CLT mats have quickly become one of the most in-demand resources, and for good reason. In contrast to traditional bolted mats, TerraLam® CLT products are created by bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive to create each mat. The end result is solutions that disperse the weight of each load throughout every inch of the wood to provide superior support, alongside long term performance that just won’t quit.
