Learn more about the benefits of CLT rig mats below.

A Newer, Better Way

As a recent addition to the site access industry, Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) mats have become a preferred solution for those in the oil & gas, construction, chemical, infrastructure, and related sectors. With an end product that weighs up to 40% less than traditional mats, CLT mats give you the ability to transport up to 25% more units per load, saving you valuable time and money with each shipment. In addition, CLT mats have a life cycle that is 3-5 times longer than bolted mats and a superior strength profile due to their inherent flexibility (more on that below), all of which makes them ideal for heavy-duty applications.

The CLT Difference

A large part of what helps set CLT mats apart can be contributed to the unique design and creation process. CLT mats are made by bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive, resulting in a lighter and more flexible profile that is able to bend with each load to prevent sudden breakages.

Made with Southern Yellow Pine Wood Fibre, which is 30% harder than Douglas Fir, TerraLam® CLT Access Mats are among the best available on the market and backed by the reputation for excellence held by its manufacturer, Sterling Solutions. The 500 series models are capable of standing up to a wide range of heavy applications, including acting as a foundation for cranes, and more.

Unparalleled Results

In addition to their unique structure, CLT mats offer a wide range of benefits to owners and renters, 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, including heat and cold.
  • Solid matting top reduces tripping hazards, as well as the tire damage to vehicles
  • Cheaper to ship due to the lightweight nature of the mats (more CLT mats can be shipped compared to bolted products), and more.
