TerraLam® Tough: Rig Mats at GFI Solutions

It’s time to get TerraLam® tough on heavy-duty loads!

If your project is in need of heavy-duty cost-effective matting solutions that can tackle demanding jobs? Rig and crane mats are an essential resource for projects and job sites related to the oil & gas, mining, petrochemical, forestry, and construction industries, allowing materials to reach their intended destination safely. As a much lighter alternative to traditional fir mats, TerraLam® Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) access mats have become the go-to solution and offer unbeatable strength as well as lower shipping costs among many other benefits. Learn more about CLT products, including TerraLam®’s 500 series mats, below.

The New Standard

Despite being one of the newer innovations within the site access industry, TerraLam® CLT mats have quickly made a name for themselves due to their durability, longevity and cost-effectiveness. Designed to improve upon the framework of traditional bolted mats, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is created by bonding alternating perpendicular layers of wood with an environmentally safe adhesive. This bonding method leaves the mats far more flexible than their bolted counterparts and allows them to evenly disperse load stress through the entire surface, which makes them far less prone to breakages.

TerraLam® CLT Access Mats as offered by GFI solutions are crafted from high-quality Southern Yellow Pine Wood Fibre, which is 30% harder than Douglas Fir, the most common wood fibre used in the construction of bolted mats. This makes them ideal for heavy-duty jobs, even serving as rig and crane mats when needed.

Plenty of Benefits to Explore

CLT access and rig mats offer multiple benefits for job sites, including a lifecycle that lasts up to 3-5x longer than bolted mats. Key features and perks of choosing TerraLam® CLT mats includes:

  • Lightweight profile means that you can ship up to 60% more mats per trip, saving money on transport costs.
  • Versatile in application and able to withstand the demands of fluctuating climates year-round.
  • High impact resistance
  • Resistant to moisture and rot, and more.
