Remediation Done Right with CLT Access Mats

Remediation Done Right with CLT Access Mats

Does your worksite have the tools it needs to stay safe, efficient, and protect the environment? When it comes to overcoming the Canadian landscape and keeping production on track, access mats are your number one resource for success. Designed to provide a safe, dependable foundation for transport as well as the operation of heavy machinery, CLT access mats are your top choice when it comes to building a safe path forward. Below, we’ll highlight some of the benefits of working with access mats, especially where environmental remediation is concerned. Read on to learn more.

No More Costly Delays

The Canadian landscape is unforgiving on fleets, making it difficult to reach your job site without damaging your fleet and/or equipment. Uneven terrain and constantly changing conditions make site access solutions invaluable when it comes to protecting your assets and guarding production. Rain, snow, sleet, ice, mud and everything in between lead to costly delays and damage; access matting provides a stable path that prevents risky mishaps, allows trucks and machinery to proceed safely to and from your site without the major disruption of building a permanent road.

Preserve The Ground Beneath and Surrounding Your Site

When using access mats as temporary roadways, you provide a crucial layer of protection for the surrounding terrain as well as local ecosystems by minimizing the damage and disruption caused to the area. Access mats shield the ground from physical damage caused by heavy treads and equipment, as well as from exposure to harmful chemicals or compounds that may be used in your operations. This ensures that your site is always in line with remediation and environmental standards, and the further use of additional tools like access bridges to cross rivers, creeks, ditches, and more, allow you to operate efficiently without needing to permanently alter the landscape. Two main environmental benefits to using access mats include:

Prevent Cross-Contamination

Cross-contamination is one of the major environmental concerns for site operators and can lead to costly fines if you choose to operate without the proper precautions. Site-safe CLT access mats help to reduce this risk by acting as a solid barrier, and washing your mats between jobs goes an extra step farther in protecting different ecosystems from harm.

Reduced Recovery Time

Remediation efforts are a key necessity to project approvals these days and using site access solutions makes it much easier to achieve and uphold your standards throughout the duration, as well as upon completion of your project. Since access mats serve as a temporary measure, they can easily be removed and transported to the next site after being washed down all with reduced damage to the environment itself.
