Cost-Effective Solution

GFI’s Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats are a cost-effective solution for all contractors. The cost-saving starts from the moment the CLT access mats are manufactured to when they are delivered to your worksite. For starters, CLT access mats are made from Southern Yellow Pine, making our mats significantly lighter and easier to transport. This will allow you to save up to 50% on transport since more CLT access mats can fit during transportation than standard mats. You can also save up to 40% on labour and equipment as our CLT access mats are lighter in weight than traditional bolted access mats. GFI Solutions enables you to ship more mats per load, saving you both time and money on delivery.

Stronger Solution

It is a common misconception that CLT access mats are less robust than bolted access mats; however, that is not the case. CLT access mats use adhesive to bond the wood together instead of bolts, which allows for higher durability as the weight is spread across the entire board evenly. The adhesion also rids you from worrying about replacing your bolted mats from damage caused by wood splinters, gaps and uneven weight distribution.

Some might think that using fibre instead of blocks of wood decreases the durability of access mats; however, Southern Yellow Pine Wood fibre is 30% stronger than Douglas fir used in standard bolted mats. Our CLT access mats are created to guarantee long-lasting durability in all job sites under any conditions. You can either buy or rent CLT 300 and CLT 500 mats that come in various standardizations:

3- or 5-ply Construction

  • 300 CLT – 8’ wide x 4’ thru 16’ long
  • 500 CLT – 4’ wide x 4’ thru 18’ long
  • 500 CLT – 8’ wide x 4’ thru 18’ long

Cross Laminated Timber: Your Secret Weapon for Safe Site Access

That’s why we offer a vast selection of site-safe Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) swamp mats in a wide variety of sizes and weights, including 500 level mats suitable for crane and rig work. Site-safe CLT mats are designed to be stronger and longer lasting than bolted mats, you can rest assured that you’re always getting the best ROI.

How do CLT mats outperform bolted mats? Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are bonded together with an environmentally safe structural adhesive instead of bolts which allows them to transfer the load evenly through every square foot of the mat, strengthening the planks and reducing your chance of damage. In addition to superior durability where loads are concerned, the adhesive also protects the mat from rot and decay, meaning your lifecycle is much longer and maximizing your investment. The final result are swamp mats that last 3-5x longer than standard mats and stand up to the most demanding tasks with ease.
