Temporary Worksite Mats, Rig Mats and Bridge Mats!

With summer just around the corner, much of Canada faces rainfall and irregular weather patterns, making it difficult for trucks and machinery to reach remote job sites. Temporary access solutions like bridges and mats are an essential resource that allows you to overcome the obstacles presented by the changing weather while also protecting the environment from harm during your project.

While purchasing mats was the preferred option of choice, renting access mats has become the go-to solution by project managers in some of the biggest companies in construction, oil & gas, petrochemical, mining, power and renewable energy industries. GFI Solutions is proud to be Canada’s leading supplier of temporary access solutions, including access mats, rig mats and access bridges for rent and sale.

Access Mats

When purchasing access mats to build makeshift roads in and out of a job site, clients tend to underestimate the amount of time and effort that is required to transport, install, remove and clean the mats. Renting temporary access mats will save you time and money since you won’t have to worry about professionally cleaning the mats or finding space to store your mats for the next project. GFI Solutions offers several matting services, including:

  • Mat Washing
  • Turn-Key Services
  • Inventory Management
  • Delivery and Installation
  • Manufacturing
  • Planning and Consultation

Rig Mats

Projects with heavy equipment such as dump trucks, loaders, excavators, drilling rigs, or similar heavy machinery require more robust access mats that can withstand extremely heavy loads or applications. Rig mats are primarily used to support heavier machinery and have steel frames to withstand heavy loads safely. Renting temporary rig mats will usually cost significantly less than buying brand new ones and offer you the same reliable quality.

Temporary Access Bridges

In order to safely cross muddy paths, waterways or swamps, project managers are required to install temporary access bridges to maintain the safety of the equipment, the crew and the environment. Temporary bridges are easy to install and remove, and some can even be delivered to the job site on a single truck. Depending on the equipment you have and the weight of the loads, TerraCross bridges can handle up to 100 tons of weight. The specs include:


  • Maximum Weight Limit: 100 tons
  • Spanning Distance: 35′
  • Total Length: 40′
