Should You Buy Or Rent Construction Mats

Should You Buy Or Rent Construction Mats

If you work in the construction, pipeline, civil engineering, power transmission or other industries that require safe site access mats, you know that not all jobs and job sites are the same. The type of access mating solution you need will not only depend on the type of project, but it will also depend on the project’s duration, the weather, maintenance and any other factor that can cause delays.

One of the most common factors that could cause delays during a project is supply chain and/or logistics. Oftentimes project managers either can’t find the right access mat for the job or are unable to purchase enough mats for the scope of the project. As a result, projects are delayed and extended beyond their specified timeline.

To avoid costly project delays due to a shortage of access inventory, GFI Solutions is proud to introduce our construction mat rental service. We understand the challenges that many projects face due to a lack of access mats, which is why we offer a variety of matting solutions available for both rental and purchase. Read on to learn more about our access mating solutions for remote worksites, including our rental service.

Rental Service:

Ground protection is essential in all remote locations, especially with heavy industrial projects. One of the most important factors you should consider before sending out an order for access mats is the duration of your project. Many access mating providers charge a daily rate for construction mat rental or set an amount for a predetermined rental period. To avoid any costs that may be charged for additional time, assess your project’s duration before contacting your ground protection provider.

At GFI Solutions, we offer different types of mat grades according to your mat needs. Depending on your project’s needs and the type of certain applications, you can rent or purchase A, B, or C grade mats. Contact our experts to learn more about our mat grading!

Delivery and Installation:

GFI’s Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats can save you up to 60% on delivery and 40% on labour. The unique process of manufacturing CLT mats results in a stronger and lighter product that can be easily transported to your worksite. Compared to traditional bolted construction mats, CLT mats are two-thirds the weight of traditional bolted mats. Not only can we deliver up to 72 mats per load, but we can also fit more mats on shuttle trucks and loaders, which increases your savings on installation and removal.
