Industry Leading Access Mats

CLT access mats, also commonly referred to as swamp mats, are engineered to be up to 40% lighter than bolted mats. The unique design of CLT access mats provides clients with exceptional quality while maintaining the safety of the equipment, the crew and the environment. With CLT access mats, you will no longer have to worry about constantly replacing your mats, as they are twice the strength of traditional bolted mats and five times stiffer. We manufacture industry-leading access mats to help clients stay on track, especially during the toughest of terrains.

You Can Always Count on CLT Mats 

With industrial projects, the primary factor is safety. With heavy equipment involved and expensive material transported, it’s essential to purchase or rent access mats that you can count on. GFI Solutions’ CLT access mats (swamp mats) are manufactured using Cross-Laminated Timber, which uses an environmentally friendly adhesive to bond the layers of wood together. The layers of wood are placed perpendicular to one another, resulting in exceptional strength and performance. The use of the adhesive with CLT mats not only enhances the performance of the access mats but also eliminates the use of bolts or the presence of any gaps that can result in work hazards. Using CLT access mats will create a smooth surface for your machinery, prevent any tire punctures and ensure the safety of your crew.

Benefits of CLT Access Mats

The unique design of CLT access mats creates many benefits, including:

  • Saving up to 60% on freight

Your worksite comes with various unique needs and challenges that can make efficiency and safety an issue. Access mats from GFI can assist you in guaranteeing that your worksite is safe for your workers, equipment, and the environment.

Below we’ll discuss some benefits of switching from traditional bolted access mats to CLT mats. Continue reading to learn more!

Why Switch to CLT Access Mats?

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats are an asset to any project site, especially for areas where heavy machinery and equipment are used. CLT access mats are manufactured to improve upon some of the best features of traditional bolted mats. CLT mats are made using alternating perpendicular pinewood layers bonded with a unique eco-friendly adhesive. The special adhesive allows the access mats to flex under pressure and distribute weight evenly across the entire mat. That results in an access mat with a 3-5 times longer lifespan than traditional bolted mats. Making the switch to CLT access mats can enhance your worksite with additional benefits such as the following:

  • Ability to withstand extreme environmental conditions
  • Repels moisture, rot, and decay
  • Environmental safe
  • Interlocking capabilities
  • Gap-less, solid mat top reduces tripping hazards and more!

GFI Solutions’ offering of TerraLam CLT mats has many benefits for various industries here in Alberta. So if you’re working in the oil and gas, or the renewable energy sector, CLT mats can assist you in ensuring your site is safe and accessible.

Stay on Budget

CLT mats are constructed from Southern Yellow Pine which is significantly lighter in weight. CLT mats are two-thirds the weight of traditional bolted mats, which means you can save up to 60% on transportation costs. Per load, you’re able to fit up to 72 CLT mats. More mats per load mean delivery is fast and cost-effective. At GFI Solutions, our team will ensure your project has reliable and safe access mats. We offer 24/7 support, so our team can still assist if your project is working in a remote location! So whether you’re looking for access mats or bridges to rent or buy, GFI Solutions is here to help.

Matting Options And Services

Matting Options And Services

Access mats (also known as swamp mats) are laid on the ground of construction worksites to make difficult terrains such as rocky slopes, swamps and unstable soil a safer worksite for heavy equipment and construction workers. The mats are installed side-by-side (or sometimes overlapping) to create a mobile road-like foundation to allow for easy transportation across uneven ground. Access mats not only protect the crew and the worksite, but they also protect the landscape from rutting, contaminants or chemicals left behind by rigs and cranes.

GFI Solutions is proud to present you with Sterling Solutions’ Cross Laminated Timber access mats/swamp mats for your worksites. CLT mats are made from Southern Yellow Pine wood which keeps the access mats dry, safe and robust throughout your project. Learn more about why our worksite swamp mats are below!

This allows us to manage available stock for your ongoing projects and guarantee the optimum level of access mats available for future needs.

Manufacture, Deliver & Install

Not only do we manufacture access mats in-house, but we also provide delivery and installation services. Our CLT mats are available in 3- or 5-ply construction but can also be manufactured to your specifications. Since our TerraLam mats are engineered to be lightweight, we can fit 72 mats per load on the delivery truck, saving you up to 60% in transportation costs. Our team of experts is ready to deliver and install your mats as per your need.

Mat Washing

Access mats require regular cleaning to reduce the risk of contamination, damage or even breakage. Installing mobile roads and moving access mats around the worksite can cause irreparable damage, especially if your worksite involves the use of fuel or chemicals. Unwashed access mats can harm the environment or even cause potential reactions in the future. GFI’s mat washing services keep your worksite clean and safe as well as provide a longer life cycle for your access mats.

Planning & Consultation

Building a mobile road using access mats requires meticulous planning. Our experts are available to consult with you on your upcoming projects and plan out the optimal place for your custom-built road.

Safe For The Environment

TerraLam® access mats are engineered through a novel process called Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), which is the use of an environmentally safe adhesive to bond the wooden planks together, instead of using metal bolts. CLT access mats are also designed using wood used in plantation-grown Southern Yellow Pine, which is harvestable at 20 years, in comparison to oak, which is harvestable after 100 years. It is important to us that all of our products are built with consideration of our current environmental issues and provide solutions for sustainable forest practices. Ensure your next project does not harm the environment by choosing CLT access mats.

Safe Foundation 

The adhesion in our CLT access mats is not only safe for the environment but also provides a safe foundation for your heavy equipment. Using adhesion instead of bolts eliminates gaps between the wooden planks, reducing the strain on singular wooden planks by evenly distributing the weight of each load. We also ensure that our CLT access mats are durable in extreme weather conditions to guarantee overall safety on the job site as we understand the dangers and possible accidents associated with the use of machinery in extreme weather on any work site.

Safe For The Crew

Our CLT access mats are also designed to provide a safe and smooth worksite for your crew. We have eliminated any gaps between wooden planks in our access mats to eliminate the possibility of accidents. The smooth surface ensures that your crew will not trip, get stuck or involuntarily damage the wooden planks as a result of an uneven surface. Install our CLT access mats today to provide a safer job site for your workers and avoid costly accidents in the future.
