Why Use Access Bridges

It’s no surprise that Canada’s landscape can make it difficult to navigate your job site, and with the safety of your crew and equipment on the line, it’s important to have a vetted option in place to help you overcome the many issues that frequent remote locations. While access mats are fantastic for creating makeshift roads, access bridges are a much better option for major gaps like ditches, creeks, sinkholes, or gullies that cannot be fixed by a flat laid option. Access bridges are designed to allow your fleet to go over troublesome land, save time with fast installation, increase the overall safety of the entire site, all while providing you with superior ROI.

If you’re debating what kind of access bridge would be right for your job site, consider factors like:

  • Project duration and how long you’ll need a bridge in place
  • Load capacity needs
  • Specific geographical concerns as well as any climate/environmental factors that need to be included.
  • Whether you want a moveable option or a more permanent fixture.

It’s important to note that, while both portable and permanent options are available, portable access bridges are generally sufficient for most applications overall thanks to their flexibility.
