GFI Solutions Mat Management Program

In our mat management program, we take care of your access mats from installation to removal, whatever that looks like in each case. Our GFI Solutions team is waiting to transport your access mats to save you money and time. GFI Solutions offers a comprehensive mat management program featuring the following:

Professional Delivery and Installation

The goal of any access mat is to avoid ground disturbance or environmental cross-contamination. In addition to these qualities, our access mats will save you 60% in transportation costs through our ability to almost double the number of mats on each truck. We will also provide quality access mats that are 3-5x stronger than traditional mats.

Once delivered, our expert installers will proceed with your access mat installation on-site. Our GFI Solutions experts know how to handle your access mats during installation to avoid damage or gapping. Our customers each receive custom mat management programs to suit their needs if requested: if you do not have GFI Solutions access mats, don’t worry! We still offer this program to you. Contact us for a consultation.

We Handle Washing and Bleaching

Washing your access mats is how you prevent premature failure. Dirt, mud and grime will build up on your access mats after installation. But a good clean will keep your mats working from project to project without cross-contamination of environments or falling apart. By using our GFI Solutions mat maintenance program, you are lengthening the life cycle of your access mats and gaining a higher return on investment.

At GFI Solutions, we wash and bleach your access mats for you. We offer access mat installation, washing, delivery, and more. Let us deal with the transportation of your access mats to and from our washing machines—or let us bring our washing machines to you!

Access Mat Removal And Clean-Up

Once your project is complete or your access mats are no longer usable, GFI Solutions can assist with their removal. While a viable option is to allow the environmentally-safe access mat to biodegrade in place, we offer removal services that will remove your installed access mats and clean up any residual debris that may affect the environment. To access this service, please call GFI Solutions and discuss what mat management features best suit your needs.

Tips On Proper Access Mat Installation

Tips On Proper Access Mat Installation

Access mats are essential in many heavy industry projects, especially with remote worksites. Not only do access mats protect the environment from chemicals and hazardous materials, but it also offers safe transportation for equipment and workers on rugged terrain. Many companies rely on heavy-duty access mats as they can withstand the weight of heavy machinery without altering ecologically sensitive areas. Access mat installation is crucial to the performance of the access mats and can help enhance the efficiency of your project. Read on to learn a few tips on proper access mat installation.

Plan For Project Scope

Before purchasing or renting access mats, take your time to plan out how many mats you need. If you need assistance with this, GFI representaives will conduct a site visit to determine how mats you require and the best way to install the access mats on the site. Site visits ensure we have a proper plan for the most cost effective delivery and installaiton of the access mats.

Plan For Possible Delays

With the drastic shift in Canadian weather, you must always plan for possible wetland areas and topical gaps on your worksite. You never know how the weather might suddenly change, so plan for possible scenarios where you might need a variety of different matting solutions like access mats, acess bridges, rig mats or crane mats.

Choose Suitable Products

While all industries are familiar with bolted access mats, they often take much longer to install as they are heavier. Cross Laminated Mats (CLT), on the other hand, are very simple and quick to install. They are lighter, more durable and much more cost-effective than traditional bolted mats. At GFI Solutions, we offer a wide range of CLT products, including:

  • Site Safe Access Mat® 300 Clt
  • Site Safe Access Mat® 500 Mat Clt
  • Site Safe Access Mat™ Bridges
  • Worksite Access Mats
  • Professional Access Mat Installation

Many project managers and contractors opt to have their workers install their access mats, not knowing that improper installation can lead to many worksite delays. Our Site Safe portable access bridge, for example, is an easy-to-deliver access solution but requires the help of GFI experts for proper installation. Our team is professionally trained to effectively install Site Safe bridges, ensuring safe and efficient transportation of your heavy machinery and equipment.
