GFI Solutions’ rig mats are the best choice for your access mat needs with unmatched quality and ROI.

Save on Transportation

As Canada’s exclusive source for Sterling Solutions’ Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) rig mats, we are excited to bring you the benefits of such an innovative matting solution.

Built with southern yellow pine fibre instead of the 30% heavier and more commonly used Douglas fir, CLT mats are much lighter than the standard site access rig mats. With this difference in weight, we can save you up to 50% on freight costs. By saving you up to half of the cost, CLT mats give you more money to stay safely within budget.

Save on Installation And Removal

Installation costs can be a significant strain on your budget. With CLT safe access mats, installation is quick and efficient. These mats take much less time to install and save you up to 40% on labour and equipment costs. Not to mention less time on installation means more time getting the project done.

With easy installation comes easy removal. CLT mats are lighter and make for a quick removal job so you can get your project wrapped as quickly, safely and as efficiently as possible.

Longterm Benefits

With CLT mats, you get to enjoy a long-term ROI. These mats are made to be used over and over again without sustaining extensive damage. Made from southern yellow pine fibre, these mats are 30% stronger than the more commonly used douglas fir. With a Janka Hardness Rating of 870 lbf (3,900 N), these mats last longer and are an extremely reliable staple at any worksite.

Rig mats often feature bolts as an essential part of their structure. With CLT rig mats, you get an environmentally friendly adhesive that joins the wood layers perfectly. This innovative structure allows for even weight distribution that provides better, long-lasting support. This also allows for less damage on the mats and on any machinery.

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.
