Keep reading to learn more about GFI Solutions’ Site Safe drilling rig mats and how they compare to traditional bolted mats!

CLT Mats or Bolted Mats?

While timber or bolted mats are the primary choices for safe access solutions, better options are available. One of the critical factors to consider when comparing Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats to bolted mats is that they are less suited for most industries. This is because they’re often made from both hard and softwood. This mixed wood type means they can be more susceptible to damage. Compared to CLT mats, traditional bolted mats can’t measure up to the challenge of providing a safe and long-lasting access solution for extremely heavy equipment. Below are a few advantages of CLT drilling rig mats from GFI Solutions:

  • Impact-resistant and highly durable
  • Less prone to moisture and rot due to the eco-friendly adhesive and wax seal on all edges of the rig mat
  • Weather resistant
  • Gap-free top reduces tripping risks
  • Lightweight, which reduces overall shipping costs
  • And more!

When you need safe access solutions for your next project, GFI Solutions is here to help. Our access solution experts can assist with several challenges regarding determining the appropriate amount of drilling rig mats your project will require. In addition to our drilling rig mats, GFI Solutions can also custom-build drilling rig mats. So if you need a rig mat with particular specifications, our team can custom-make it just for you!

The Industry Leader in Access Solutions

Sterling Solutions’ Site Safe CLT access mats are the premier industry standard for safe access solutions. CLT mats are significantly lighter than traditional bolted mats because they do not use any bolts; instead, they’re bonded with an eco-friendly adhesive. CLT drilling rig mats have a 3-5 times longer lifespan than traditional bolted mats. Their lifespan is long because they can flex under pressure, evenly distribute weight, and are made from Southern Yellow Pine, which is incredibly durable and robust. Combined with the manufacturing process, these factors mean that CLT drilling rig mats perform exceptionally well under heavy pressure or in challenging terrain. At GFI Solutions, we have the Site Safe CLT Mats 300 and Site Safe CLT Mats 500-series access mats. If you’re looking for a drilling rig mat that can withstand the heaviest loads, the Site Safe CLT Mats 500-series is the safe site access solution you’ve been searching for! However, our access matting experts at GFI Solutions can assist you with determining the best drilling rig mats for your project and the number of mats your project will require.
