Innovation At Its Finest

As a relatively new addition to the field of access mats, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats have quickly made a name for themselves as an indispensable resource for those in the oil & gas, construction, chemical, infrastructure, and related industries. Weighing up to 40% less than traditional bolted mats, CLT mats allow for the transport of 25% more units per load, saving you valuable time and money per load. With a life cycle that is typically 3-5 times longer than bolted mats and a superior strength profile, CLT mats can withstand heavy-duty applications, with certain models able to serve as rig and crane mats.

What Makes CLT Mats Different

The secret to the success of cross-laminated timber lies in its unique design. CLT mats are created through the process of bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive to as opposed to the traditional methods favoured by bolted mats. The end result of this process is a product that is flexible and durable, with its strength coming from the fact that weight is evenly distributed through the entire mat leading to unbeatable performance in even the toughest of conditions.

TerraLam® CLT Access Mats are among the best available and are made with Southern Yellow Pine Wood Fibre, which is 30% harder than Douglas Fir. This makes TerraLam® mats ideal for heavy-duty applications, including acting as a foundation for cranes, and more.

Unparalleled Performance

In addition to their unique structure, CLT mats offer a wide variety of benefits, including:

  • High impact resistance
  • Glue lamination and wax sealed on all 4 edges makes it easier to repel moisture and rot.
  • Suitable for use in extreme conditions, include heat and cold.
  • Solid matting top reduces tripping hazards, as well as the tire damage to vehicles
  • Able to handle heavy-duty applications
  • Cheaper to ship due to the lightweight nature of the mats (more CLT mats can be shipped compared to bolted products), and more.
