Why Used Swamp Mats?

Why Used Swamp Mats?

Swamp mats, also known as access mats, are a convenient way to overcome any delays to a project that result from unfavourable terrain conditions. Swamp mats are an excellent resource for protecting ecologically sensitive areas as well. GFI Solutions is Canada’s leading supplier of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats, with both new and various grades of used swamp mats to work for any situation.

GFI Solutions’ swamp mats are made from Longleaf Southern Yellow Pine that has been sustainably grown and harvested to produce lighter, more durable mats. Each one of these mats is cross-laminated to be stronger than traditional single wood or composite swamp mats. Below, we will dive into why you may want to invest in used swamp mats for sale instead of new ones. Discover how we ensure that our used swamp mats are completely safe.

Are Used Swamp Mats Safe?

Yes, used swamp mats are safe. In fact, used swamp mats are sometimes more beneficial than new ones. There are a variety of ways that GFI Solutions makes sure that all of our used access mats for sale are in top condition and are safe to use.

Mat Washing

Ensuring each mat is completely sanitary for its next use is essential in combating cross-contamination that can harm the surrounding habitat. Cross-contamination is our number one concern when swamp mats are being used to haul fuel, chemicals, and other toxic materials. We wash, bleach and dry mats properly so that their next use is safe for any environment through our Mat Management Program.

Thorough Inspection

Although our CLT swamp mats are more robust than many other swamp mats for sale today, all mats will experience wear and tear over time. After a thorough inspection, we will put up for sale the used swamp mats that are in good condition and triage the ones that are in need of repair. Mats with extensive damage are instantly disposed to ensure your job site is protected.

Installation and Delivery

GFI Solutions offers a professional Mat Delivery and Installation service that can help prevent premature damage from occurring as a result of improper handling. Both our shipping vehicles and our staff can take care of your used swamp mats in a manner that keeps your used swamp mats in great shape for your use. Our CLT swamp mats are up to 33% lighter than traditional bolted access mats and can save you up to 40% on transportation and shipping costs.

Used Swamp Mats For Sale

Used swamp mats for sale offer many benefits for users that a new swamp mat cannot always beat. While a used swamp mat may have damage, this can provide a better grip for shoes and wheels alike when the terrain is wet or slippery. Divots and dents can provide more grip when the weather is unfavourable. The other major benefit of used swamp mats for sale are the price. GFI Solutions has different grades of used swamp mats available to buy, and we can help you find the right swamp mats for your project. Contact us today!

Why CLT Mats?

If you’ve previously used bolted mats, but are wondering what the buzz behind CLT mats are, you’re not alone. Despite being one of the new options on the market, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats have quickly become one of the most trusted and in-demand site access solutions. Unlike their predecessors, CLT mats were created with the intention of improving upon performance and overall longevity. To ensure both objectives are met, CLT mats are made using a much different process that involves bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive to form the finished product instead of simply bolting planks into place.

The result of the unique build method behind CLT mats is a product that is much more flexible, and as a result, incredibly sturdy. In fact, compared to standard bolted models, CLT mats are up to 40% lighter, but can easily stand up to the demand of heavy equipment and more. Best of all, for those who need mats that can handle serious heavy-duty work, you can still save on shipping and gain superior ROI; Our 500 level models can perform the same tasks as traditional rig and crane mats, all while saving you money on shipping and transport thanks to the much lighter profile.
