Safe Temporary Portable Bridges

Safe Temporary Portable Bridges

Canada’s unpredictable weather can heavily affect the terrain causing you to pause your workflow every time the weather changes. If you’re tired of putting your project on hold every time the ground becomes softer, icer, or muddier, GFI Solutions have engineered the perfect matting product for you. Our team of experts understands that time is money when it comes to working on a project on open ground, which is why we are proud to introduce the TerraCross temporary portable bridge that will solve all your access problems. Read on to learn more about the benefits of the TerraCross temporary mobile bridge!

Why Use Temporary Portable Bridges

Struggling with the fluctuation of the weather during a project is frustrating for everyone. Crossing water, ditches or any uneven terrain can cause several hazardous risks for workers and machinery. Project managers in the oil and gas, power, chemical and mining industries install temporary portable bridges to provide safe and secure paths across all troublesome land. Access movable bridges are designed to offer your workers and equipment a safe worksite while saving you time and money.

TerraCross Bridge Benefits

The TerraCross temporary bridge is engineered to maintain workflow efficiency and ensure that your worksite is safe for workers, machines and the environment. With fluids being transported from one location to the other, cross-contamination and accidental spillage could heavily impact the land. TerraCross bridges are designed using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats and a geotextile surface to avoid contamination of the grounds or spillage to waterways. They are also bonded together using an eco-friendly adhesive that allows the mats to be more flexible and distribute the weight evenly throughout, rather than concentrate the weight only on the bolted areas.

Using glue to adhere the planks together instead of bolts ensures that the bridge’s surface is solid and smooth, eliminating the risk of tripping or tire punctures. TerraCross bridges are not only safe for your worksite, but they are also significantly robust and can handle weight up to 100 tons. Specs include:


  • Weight: 100 tons
  • Maximum Spanning Distance: 35′
  • Total Length: 40′
  • Matting: TerraLam® 500 bearing mats and TerraLam® 700 decking


  • Weight: 65 tons
  • Maximum Spanning Distance: 50′
  • Total Length: 56′
  • Matting: TerraLam® 500 bearing mats and TerraLam® 700 decking

Learn more about the benefits and applications of temporary access bridges, as well as TerraCross™ products, below.

Safe and Efficient Crossing

As those in the oil & gas, power, renewable, and construction sectors are well aware, Canada’s landscape can pose significant challenges to your daily logistics. In combination with access mats, access bridges play a vital role in creating viable transport pathways that are safe and dependable. While mats are sufficient for balance out uneven ground surfaces and overcoming challenges like mud or unstable soil, access bridges are essential for dealing with areas where gaps caused by creek, rivers or major dips in topography are involved. Depending on the duration and purpose of your site, either permanent or temporary solutions can be used. Additional deciding factors include:

  • Ground-type
  • Weight capacity needs
  • Area-specific environmental factors

Portable bridges such as Sterling’s game-changing TerraCross™ Access Bridge (more on that below) are perfect for a variety of applications and are well suited for projects that require access to specific areas for shorter phases rather than a permanent fix. Benefits of installing temporary access bridges include:

  • Increased safety
  • Higher productivity due to fewer delays
  • Reduced transportation costs, and more.
