How to Maintain Access Mats in Edmonton 2023

Buying access mats in Edmonton is not the end of the journey. How are you caring for your access mats? Taking care of your access mats will lengthen their lifespan, ultimately saving you money and your environmental impact. The following will teach you about three simple ways that GFI Solutions uses to ensure your access mats in Edmonton last as long as possible. Read on to learn more.

Choose The Best Access Mats

The best way to assure you are getting the most out of your access mats in Edmonton is to invest in the best quality access mats. Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are far superior to traditional bolted mats in that there is no gapping, it is environmentally friendly, plus more. The cross-lamination of the access mats prevents mud, snow, ice and other potentially harmful elements from wearing on the wood and weakening it before its time. No gaps mean it is much harder for water to soak and freeze, which splinters the wood. CLT mats have a more robust integrity, also complimented by their wax sealing on each side that stops weather and environmental damage.

Access mats in Edmonton must meet the Provincial and Federal environmental regulations, which GFI Solutions ensures with all access mats. The adhesive, wax, and wood are all eco-friendly and biodegradable.

Wash and Bleach Between Sites

After choosing quality access mats, caring for your mats will get you the most use for your investment. GFI Solutions offers bleaching and washing services that will disinfect them between jobs to prevent cross-contamination and keep them from prematurely breaking down. By caring for your mats during and after use, you’ll make sure that your Edmonton access mats last longer.

Proper Transportation and Installation

Before transporting your access mats, it’s essential to plan the logistics. How many access mats you are transporting, over what distance and through what terrain will all ultimately affect the transportation. Proper storage and transport, along with proper cleaning, will aid you in holding onto your access mats in Edmonton. Your top goal in the delivery or movement of access mats should not be how fast you can move them but how to avoid damaging them in transport. Safe lifting techniques, properly securing mats on the trucks, and regular inspections of said securing methods will all help extend your access mat’s life.
