Dependable Access Mats in the Eleventh Hour

Dependable Access Mats in the Eleventh Hour

When working in remote outdoor areas, the ground you are set to work on can be unpredictable and challenging to maneuver. Access mats are a cost-effective solution to this problem. GFI Solutions makes quality, affordable access mats for jobs happening in remote locations, including forestry, oil and gas, and construction industries. No matter the job, our access mats can provide safe and reliable accessibility for your staff and equipment alike. Let’s take a closer look at GFI Solutions access mats.

Access Mats for Remote Jobs

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) makes our boards solid and flush; there is no gapping that can result in tripping hazards or breakage. Traditional bolted mats can break under heavier loads, but our Site Safe 300 access mats can withstand over 1,300 lbs. You can choose between 3-ply, 5-ply, and 7-ply CLT access mats to fit your remote job, and we can transport and install them for you to save you time and money. For cost-effective options that fit into your project budget, or if you are looking for extra grip in wet or swampy environments, used access mats may be right for you.

Buy New or Used Mats

There are benefits to using both new and used access mats; one benefit of new mats is that they, by default, have a longer lifespan, but used mats can give grip in more slippery conditions. GFI Solutions has thousands of access mats in all grades available for you to buy or rent.

Buying mats allows you to have one investment for many uses. To ensure that your access mats last as long as possible, we recommend properly cleaning and storing your mats. If that is out of your scope, GFI’s Mat Management Program can assist you in the care your mats need to help increase their lifespan. When you aren’t sure how often your crew will need access mats, renting is a great alternative. GFI rents out mats of all grades of used mats so that you can meet your budget while getting the right quality access mats.

Learn more about the role of rig and crane mats on job sites, as wells as Sterling’s heavy-duty solutions, below!

Protect Your Assets

One of the main arguments for using rig mats centres around their ability to help mitigate any dangers that your job site may pose to valuable assets such as machinery and heavy trucks hauling material to and from your location. Environmental factors like heavy rain, mud, sleet, and other such conditions can cause significant damage to equipment without the proper safeguards in place. Rig mats not only offer a safe road to transport heavy materials over, but can act as a sturdy foundation for cranes and other machinery as needed.

Protect Your Crew

Just as rig mats step in to prevent your equipment from becoming stuck or damaged as a result of uneven terrain, they also help to prevent significant workplace hazards caused by such factors. When used properly, rig mats can help increase your overall safety on the job site, giving your crew peace of mind and helping to avoid costly accidents.

Environmentally Conscious

For companies wishing to do their part to protect the environment and minimize disturbance to the land during the course of their project, rig mats are a valuable asset. By helping to reduce the strain caused to the earth by trucks and machinery, rig mats can help reduce your footprint and ensure that you stay within recommended guidelines relevant to your specific sector.

TerraLam® CLT access mats are created using an environmentally friendly adhesive, using raw materials that are farmed in approximately 20 years, versus the standard 80-100 years, it takes to regrow the hardwood species used for bolted mats. This means, in addition to being lighter weight and more cost-effective, TerraLam® mats go above and beyond when it comes to sustainability. Whether you’re renting or purchasing mats for longterm use, they’ll go a long way to reducing the strain on the environment.

Built To Perform

As with any asset designed to handle heavy-duty requirements, top-performing rig mats need to last as long as possible. The unique cross-grain design of CLT mats gives them a leading edge over traditional mats by equally distributing the weight of each load evenly to reduce the strain and guarantee an unbeatable lifecycle.
