What Are Rig Mats

As we mentioned above, the primary purpose of both rig and crane mats is to provide heavy-duty support for jobs where standard access mats simply would not be strong enough. In order to perform well under pressure, rig mats are built with a steel frame and crafted from materials that allow them to stand up to the demands of heavy equipment like cranes, rigs, excavators, and more. These kinds of items simply weigh too much to be safely housed by standard mats, and so the reinforcement of rig mats ensures consistent performance that both you and your team can depend on. Using rig mats not only increases overall job site safety and security but also helps to protect the ground and environment, keeping you in line with crucial standards.

CLT Rig Mats

As the “new kid on the block” in the matting industry, CLT mats have quickly made a name for themselves as a superior product that can outperform competitors with ease. The secret to their success, especially where heavy loads are concerned, lies in their unique makeup. CLT mats are created through the process of bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with a special adhesive rather than the traditional methods favoured by bolted mats. The end result of this process is a product that is flexible and durable, with its strength coming from the fact that weight is evenly distributed through the entire mat leading to unbeatable performance in even the toughest of conditions. GFI Solutions offers a true CLT rig mat without a steel frame. GFI Solutions TerraLam® CLT rig mat is 50% lighter and can handle the same loads as traditional steel frame rig mats. Our TerraLam® CLT rig mats can be manufactured in any size and can be built 5 ply up to 13 ply depending on your needs.
