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.

CLT Mats: Higher Performance, Lower Cost

If you haven’t made the switch from traditional bolted mats to the new industry leader of Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), you’re missing out! As a relative newcomer on the market, CLT mats have come the new trusted standard on many job sites, and for good reason. The unique design of CLT mats has been crafted to improve upon the performance of bolted mats to the benefit of procurement and constructions managers across North America. CLT access mats are 40% lighter than bolted mats, offer a lifecycle that is 3-5 times longer, and are often crafted from wood that is 30% stronger than the standard Douglas fir used on bolted mats. The lighter weight profile of CLT mats can save you significant cash by allowing you to transfer up to 60% more worksite mats per load, and thanks to the enhanced flexibility of the mats that comes from the process of bonding planks together instead of opting them, you don’t have to worry about sudden breakages and failures.
