Why Cross Laminated Timber Mats Are a Step Above The Rest

Take on every project with the best access matting on your side with our innovative Cross Laminated Timber mats. Manufactured by Sterling Solutions, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats are tough and can take on any terrain without falling apart. Keep reading to learn how CLT mats surpass traditional bolted mats as the new standard for access matting.

What Are Cross Laminated Timber Mats?

Cross Laminated Timber mats are the new standard in site-safe access matting. These innovative access mats are made differently from traditional bolted mats. They can withstand the elements more efficiently and are made stronger so that your project can go through without any issues. These mats are made with southern yellow pine, a stronger material that can handle heavy rigs, cranes, or any other equipment. With two standardized sizes, the 300-series and the 500-series, these mats are always ready to take on the job.

Ready For Any Project

Able to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions, CLT mats are reliable access mat solutions you can trust on your worksite. These mats last 3-5 times longer than traditional bolted mats and are more durable.

While standard bolted mats are made with mixed woods and bound together with bolts, CLT access mats are secured with a powerful adhesive that holds planks of southern yellow wood fibre together seamlessly. This structure allows for each mat to distribute weight evenly across the platform. Since the weight is distributed evenly, CLT mats sustain less damage than their competitors and are capable of holding higher loads more comfortably than bolted mats.

These mats are also tested in extreme heat and cold conditions and are proven to keep their form by not delaminating or breaking in difficult weather conditions. As a more efficient option than traditional bolted mats, you can rest assured that you are getting the quality and reliability you need to get you through each job.

Cost-Saving Benefits You Can Enjoy

Take a break from replacement and maintenance fees when you invest in Cross Laminated Timber mats. Tougher than traditional bolted mats, CLT mats last longer than their competitors. You can save money on delays and safety shutdowns that can have a negative effect on your budget.

Saving on labour and equipment is another major plus when choosing CLT mats as your site safe access solution. CLT mats are incredibly lightweight, making it easier to fit more mats per freight. This allows you to save more on transportation due to lower freight costs. The lightweight design of CLT mats also makes installation seamless as your crew can install mats quicker than heavy, traditional mats. You can get your project moving along faster with CLT mats that are easy to set up and simple to remove.
